This is the Blade 500 3D Bind-N-Fly Basic Electric Helicopter. The Blade® 500 3D BNF Basic is designed for intermediate to experienced heli pilots who want a big, powerful 3D machine they can simply bind to their existing DSM2™/DSMX® transmitter and fly. It comes out of the box equipped for aggressive 3D with an E-flite® 520H 1320Kv brushless motor and an E-flite 70A S-BEC brushless ESC. This awesome power is complemented by the kind of state-of-the-art electronics and engineering you would expect to find in more expensive kits that take hours to build.

In Depth Features:

  • 425mm Carbon Fiber Main Blades: These high-performance rotor blades minimize weight without giving up strength so you can aggressively push the limit of your 3D abilities with complete confidence and absolute precision.
  • Single-Piece, Carbon Side Frames: Rigid, lightweight, carbon side frames play a big part in keeping control response crisp and precise.
  • CNC-Machined Aluminum Head Block: A rigid, lightweight aluminum head block provides maximum precision during 3D maneuvers.
  • CNC-Machined Aluminum Swash Plate: The aluminum swashplate is tough enough to handle the rigors of extreme 3D maneuvers and delivers precise cyclic and collective response at every corner of the flight envelope.
  • Triple Ball Bearing Supported Hardened Steel Main Shaft: Ball bearings support the main shaft at the top and bottom of the drive gears, as well as the top of the frame.
  • Spektrum Digital Servos: Spektrum S300 digital servos on the swash maintain maximum control authority during the most aggressive maneuvers while the extra speed of the S400G digital tail servo provides instantaneous tail response.
  • E-flite® 520H 1320Kv Brushless Motor: This proven brushless motor will consistently produce more than enough power for demanding 3D maneuvers.
  • E-flite® 70A S-BEC Speed Control: This robust speed controller is engineered to efficiently channel the high-current flow of most any high-C 6S Li-Po battery.
  • Aluminum Tail Boom: The stiff, aluminum tail boom keeps tail response crisp and precise.
  • Belt-Driven Tail Rotor with Thrust Bearings in the Grips: The smooth, efficient belt drive is complemented by the durability and precision of thrust bearings in the tail blade grips.
  • Weighted Tail Blade Hardware: Specially weighted blade mounting screws boost the speed and precision of the tail's response and reduces tail servo load during hard 3D maneuvers.
