Blade Helis mSR X Bind-N-Fly Basic Flybarless Fixed Pitch Micro Helicopter
Just got this little guy at A Main store in Chico,Ca yesterday. I'm a long time fixed wing guy who just got into helis a couple months ago. Started out on Scout Cx, then Mcx2 , then MSR, then 120Sr, and now this. I'm a beginner in helis so I still don't know much. But in comparison to original MSR this thing is AWSOME!!!!!! And MSR was already very good!!! The As3x tech delivers as promised!!!! Excellent hands off stability without a flybar or the dreaded TBE ( toilet bowl effect ) . More power, smoother, more stable, more responsive than original MSR. Kinda in between MCPX and MSR. If your a beginner,,, prob not a good choice,,, but if you've completely mastered coaxes,,,,, then this is one for you!!!!!! So far seems even more durable/crashworthy than original MSR

Blade Helis mSR X Bind-N-Fly Basic Flybarless Fixed Pitch Micro Helicopter
I've had mine about two weeks now. I'm still not very good at flying it yet, but I can already see how much quicker and agile this model is in comparison to the old msr. Without the flybar, the heli cuts through the air much easier. Its fairly stable too. It wanders a bid sometimes, but in my opinion that is caused by inertia and the ease with which the helicopter moves through the air. The flybar on the old msr had a stabilizing effect that is no longer there, so it is hard to get the helicopter to sit in one position without a bunch of micro adjustments on the controls. The tradeoff is that you get a much more nimble and faster flying helicopter. Flying the msr as compared to the new msrx, in my experience, was like the whole flying experience was sped up to twice as fast. Also, you get a more "locked-in" feeling because the helicopter responds more crisply and accurrately to input from the controls. I even flew the thing outside for a bit on a very calm day. Again, without the flybar it cuts through the air much easier and is a noticeable improvement over the old msr. The wind does not seem to drag on it as much without the flybar. Also, the helicopter has proven durable so far. Nothing has broken yet, and I have had about a dozen minor crashes or so inside the living room. Its a five star heli considering the fact that the flybarless feature really ramps up the flying experience. Plus these tiny blade helicopters can really hold up to crashing as long as your careful with them. Most crashes are no big deal if you get in the habit of shutting down the rotor as soon as you realize your about to crash. The helicopters are so light that a crash into the carpet just isn't really capable of breaking the thing. To me, this is the beauty of the design of these tiny Blade helis. It is very clever to design a helicopter so light that it will survive a crash with little or no damage. As a beginner, this is what makes this hobby viable for me as I'm not made out of money!

Stable, fast, agile. A bit strange behaviour of stabilization system on high forward speed (no rudder control response), but still ok. What is no good is flying time. 3-4 minutes with no "soft" cutoff. Then it's just falling down like a brick. And when it falls - prepare to buy a lot of blade grips (BLH3214 part) and other parts... Motor is crap, quickly becomes hot and collector dies. Count it as consumable item and have one or two to replace. Anyway, very funny little wasp. Controllable even on moderate windy weather.
