The latest RC Quadrocopter by Blade, with AS3X 3-axis gyro system. Lots of fun with the latest micro RC helicopter.
Now Horizon Hobby has joined the Quadrocopter market with the Blade mQX. This 4-rotor chopper is available as an RTF model or as a BNF.
The new E-Flite AS3X 3-axis gyro system is utilized. Already used on the Gee Bee R2 BNF and the Hyper Taxi BNF RC Park Flyer, the AS3X system is combined with a 4-channel receiver,4-RC ESCs and a mixer on one circuit board.
The mQX is sleek and very high-tech quadcopter. The AS3X gyro system, allows flying indoors or even outdoors, in a dead calm or breezy. The gyro system gives a pilot a lot of confidence and the feeling of flying a much larger RC helicopter.
RC helicopter pilots with a little experience will enjoy this model the most. It is not recommended as a beginner RC helicopter.
Note that this RC quadrocopter comes with 2 black props and 2 white ones. This will help with orientation! It is always a problem with quadrocopters-which way is it flying!
To further confuse the issue, Blade have made it possible to fly the mQX in two different flight modes. They are called "X-mode" (as shown in the above photo) and +-mode. When in +-mode the fuselage can be rotated 45 degrees and you can now fly with one propeller leading.
As the photo shows, this version includes all the components included with the RTF version, EXCEPT the RC transmitter.
This version is a little cheaper and is intended for customers who already possess a compatible, 2.4GHz transmitter that is DSM2 or DSMX compatible.
For the RTF version, everything is included. You may consider purchasing a spare lipo battery to decrease times between flights.
