  • Blade RC Helicopter Kits at Modelflight

    Blade RC Helicopter Kits at Modelflight
    Blade have always been known for producing high quality RC helicopters. While the majority of these models come ready-to-fly (RTF), today we wanted to look at two new helis at the opposite end of the spectrum. The 600 X and 550 X kits are great for pilots who want to build a heli to their own specifications. The great thing about these kits, though, is that they give you a very solid foundation for building this dream machine. Let's look at each kit in turn. Blade 550 X ...

  • Blade 300 CFX RC Helicopter - Arriving Soon at Modelflight

    Blade 300 CFX RC Helicopter - Arriving Soon at Modelflight
    The original Blade 300 X was a popular RC helicopter for pilots looking to perform fantastic aerobatics in the air. Today, we are pleased to announce that the 300 X is being upgraded to a whole new level. The brand new 300 CFX comes with a carbon-fibre frame and a range of aluminium hop-up parts already installed.   One of the great things about the Blade 300 CFX is its optimised servo geometry. This geometry is similar to what you would find in Blade's flagship 700 X. It gives the 300 CFX an extremely precise feel when flying and prevents mechancial loss through the flybarless system. This servo geometry also ensures that the included...

  • Event Review – Indoor Flying in Adelaide, November 2013

    Event Review – Indoor Flying in Adelaide, November 2013
    A fun night of indoor flying was held last night at ETSA Stadium, Adelaide. There were around 30 pilots and spectators in attendance and, once again, a variety of models were on show. Of particular interest was the new Blade 180QX. This RC quadcopter was very stable in the air, thanks to the included SAFE Technology. Similar to the 350 QX, this quadcopter comes with an on-board camera, which certainly came in handy last night, as we were able to capture some great footage from the sky. If you haven't already seen this footage (along with the other video highlights we captured), check out our video below:     As you can see, the 180 QX is very smooth in the air and was able to film all the action of the event. If you are looking for an ...
