Hmmmm, how does it compare to the Sr?

I take it the three flight modes are just a three-way switch for throw? I do like the idea of a panic button though!

Suppose its nice, but a 200 size should have a main-driven tail.

Prefer the new 300X personally.

SR is C/P this is fixed pitch and fbl. different heli. Strange they would go for a F/P heli with all clone knokoffs. No FBL clones this size.

All of the currently available FP helis are low quality, self-stabilizing models that require considerable modifications and constantly wear out motors, because they are waaay over-weight. They are poor for learning. This could be a real game changer, an FP heli you can actually learn with. Anyone who has tried the SAFE flight controller will tell you it's one hell of a piece of electronics. Extremely precise and responsive, way above the competition. I will need to buy one. Blade also announced a 200Qx quad. I'll probably need to buy one of those, too.

I disagree about the needing a belt or shaft drive tail. Motor driven tails are inherently more durable and simple. The knock has always been the brushed motor tails can't keep up and wear out too fast. I (and others) have used brushless tails where the tail is offset, with no problems at all. The Hirobo Quark SG uses a brushless tail and is perfectly capable performing any moves you would care to try. The knock on brushless tail motors was that brushless motors didn't respond fast enough, and was primarily due to using the wrong ESC and having to go through a signal converter, to attach to a board meant to handle a brushed tail motor.

Aw man! How'd I miss that?

So, an easy to fly FP with no pendulum effect that's easy to see at 30 yards. I could've found my 120sr replacement......

I was so excited about this one. Perfect size, SAFE tech. Now I come to this thread and see that's it's fixed pitch. Worthless.... So it can blow away in the wind? Try to get it back against the wind and all the FBL tech in the world won't keep it stable once the headspeed spools down. Dang, would have sold like hotcakes.

I learned to fly with a Blade msrx and if the wind was going to blow a fixed pitch fbl heli around it would be that one. The only real affect the wind had on it was that it would go up and down a little with the gust, but I got use to that and it was no big deal. Now that I fly much larger cp heli's the wind still only affects them in an up and down way not a side to side. I feel that a fixed pitch fbl heli is the best to learn with and the larger 200SR X can only be easier to fly, especially in the wind.

I have that one too as well as several CP birds. But I do not see enough strength in correction with the MSRX. When there is wind, you get translational lift. Then you reduce throttle to bring it down, and cyclic authority dumps when you do that and the heli wobbles around with little control as the FBL controller and you try to get it to move in a desired direction.

Let me rephrase my opinion of this new heli. It looks great for beginners in little to no wind. But once you learn collective pitch, and use idle up and negative pitch to get down in wind, you just can't go back. Maybe this one is different with it's symmetrical blades, I don't know. I just got my hopes up for something I could fly anywhere with a bail out.

Yeah I fly my mSR X in light winds and as long as I compensate with the left stick, it flies great.
