This is the Blade Inductrix Ready to Fly Ultra Micro Electric Quad-Copter Drone. Utilizing an Electric Ducted Fan (EDF) system, the Blade Inductrix is part jet, and part quadcopter! The cylindrical rotor housings add significant durability and when carefully tuned, produce a smoother flight with less noise. The Inductrix ultra micro drone features innovative flight technology and is a machine you can fly just about anywhere, with a performance edge that makes your flight experience more fun than you could imagine. Brilliant LED orientation lights and a sleek body design make it easy to keep going in the right direction. When combined with SAFE® technology with self-leveling, staying in control is effortless, even if it’s your first time behind the sticks!


Features:

  • SAFE® Technology: Exclusive Horizon Hobby SAFE® technology combines small pitch and roll angle limits with electronic self-leveling to help you stay in control and have more fun.
  • Quiet Ducted Fans: Four carefully-tuned electric ducted fans offer smooth performance that produces far less noise compared to normal quads that use propellers for thrust. The stealthy result is a machine that’s less intimidating with the appeal of a jet aircraft.
  • Durable: Each cylindrical rotor housing ducts air through the high-speed rotors, and provides an inherently durable structure. You can bump the Inductrix drone into practically anything with little risk.
  • Visibility: Brilliant LED lights are located to provide instant orientation reference. The clear rotor housings keep your view unobstructed and add an unmistakable glow to the airframe.
  • Li-Po flight battery: The E-flite® 150mAh 1S 3.7V 30C Li-Po flight battery, included, can provide up to 5-minutes of flight and can be conveniently recharged with the included USB charger.

Blade Inductrix RTF Ultra Micro Electric Quad-Copter Drone
Excellent starter quad or office flyer! Only two batteries flown but so far this quad is very stable, quiet, and agile. Previously owned a Nano QX and I would say I like the way this flies even more. Simple and durable construction, the LED lights shine through the mainbody of the quad nicely, appr. 5-7 minute flight times. Great purchase!

Blade Inductrix RTF Ultra Micro Electric Quad-Copter Drone
Not as good as one could hope. The Quad has trouble maintaining level flight requiring constant inputs. Even after using the trims the quad wobbled around constantly. I checked the motors and they all seem to be working fine. I did all my testing in the house where there is no wind at all. If all I'm supposed to do is "let go of the sticks and allow the quad to hover," it certainly does not work as advertised.

Also, the quad is extremely sensitive to throttle input. I would tap it up and it would raise a few inches, then drift around unstable because of ground effects. Another tap up on the throttle and the quad is bouncing off the ceiling. There doesn't seem to be a way to do as the instructions say and just hover it a few feet off of the floor. Even the smallest inputs would bounce around. I tried using the stick button to switch modes, but neither mode made any difference in behavior that I could find.

All around a disappointment.
