Now that I have a DSM2 radio (12FG w/ Spektrum DM9 module) I caved in and bought a Blade mCX to add to my hangar. I so totally don't need it, but it's fun to have an I had a coupon for the LHS... heh. Yes, I fly a $99 heli with a $1199 radio... what of it?

It took a bit of configuring... Had to change CH2(from rudder to Elevator) and CH4(from pitch to rudder). Also reverse channels 2, 3, and 4. Then it flew like a champ.

It's AMAZING that this little thing flies as good as it does. Every bit as good as my old Hirobo XRB which cost $350 only a few years ago.

AUW: ~1oz.
