Blade Helis 450 X Bind-N-Fly Flybarless Electric Collective Pitch Helicopter w/BeastX
DSMX SECURITY + BEASTX PRECISION IN ONE UNIT
The precision and responsiveness of BeastX flybarless technology completely transforms any heli flying experience. The 450 X brings you all the benefits of this technology through the amazing Spektrum AR7200BX Flybarless Control System; a 7-channel DSMX receiver with a BeastX 3-axis MEMS stabilization system in a single, compact unit weighing barely over 1/2 an ounce (18 g). Perhaps best of all is how simple the AR7200BX is to use. No special programming interface is needed to make adjustments. All you need to fine tune its response is the DSM2/DSMX transmitter it’s bound to.

This product was added to our catalog on September 6, 2014.
It arived with the swashplate set about 17mm which is 2mm higher than it should be. I went through and completely set it up again. Then I discovered that the elevator control arm was binding on the aileron servo control horn during step L (adjusting cyclic swashplate limit) in the BeastX setup. To get around this I have ordered and replaced the two standard length ball joints with the longer ones normally used for the inner ring of the swashplate. This has allowed the full movement with swash set at correct height.
So I was a little nervous as I've really only been flying helis for about 6 months.
Today was the first two 4 min flights. battery was only used down to 58% so I could probably get a 4.5 min flight no trouble. Keep in mind I was in tamed down settings. I would highly recommend this heli to the experienced pilot.)
