I just picked up the Micro Tandem, Got it at my local Hobbytown. They did not get any parts or the 250 batts in. So it is just the copter, which comes with everything needed. Batt is charging. Here are some pics.

All I can say is you have to have this copter. It has real nice and fast FF. Excellent controls. Flies incredibly smooth. The built in lights, white landing light, flashing red and white on front and a flashing red in front of rear rotor. It flies smoother than my mCX's, IT IS SO MUCH FUN!!!! I NEED MORE BATTERIES!!! My Wife really likes this one too. Here are some in flight photos she took. A more detailed report will follow later or tomorrow after a few more flights.

Man, I really like those in flight pictures. All of them except for the last two looks like its just sitting in mid air with nothing holding it up.

Dangit, why doesn't my hobbytown have them yet!!!! Someone needs to invent transporters for parcel delivery!

My review of the Blade MCX TR
IT flys great right out of the box , the lights really add to this heli , cool factor , especially with the room lights off

No Kidding right out of the box and up and flying .

Of course I had to fly it with the battery from my Blade MSR ...............while waiting for the new 250 mah battery to charge in the new provided charger .

E-Flite has hit another HOME RUN with this heli

It just keeps getting better

I picked mine up today at the same Hobbytown as sleb. I got just over 7 minutes when the LVC kicked in. About 45 minutes for recharge with the provided charger at max setting - 0.7 Amp.

About a 7 min flight with the supplied 250 mah battery , it does take awhile to charge it .

About 4 mins flight in the Tandem Rescue with the 150 mah MSR battery .

And I usually fly the MCX S300 with its supplied battery about 7 min and land before lv shutdown .

Useing the 150 mah battery from the MSR , in my MCX S300 , I get about 10 minutes of flying .
