http://www.bladehelis.com/Products/D...780#quickMedia

200 QX BL

Key Features

SAFE™ Technology equipped
Three flight modes
High performance brushless motors
Internal LED illumination for easy orientation and night flying
Optional camera available separately

Overview

Looking for the ultimate in sport quadcopter performance, look no further! The 200 QX is the little brother of the 350 QX and was designed with power in mind so you can not only carry a payload, but can have a blast with aerobatics too.

The 200 QX is the perfect blend of power and functionality, making it one of the most fun-to-fly products we’ve designed to date. Everything from the translucent body with internal lighting to the incredible power, the 200 QX is sure to please everyone who gets their hands on it!

Yes, I'll have one of those thank you.

Great idea, just a little sports flier.

I think Blade is turning into Apple. That's going to piss off a lot of 180QX buyers.
But this looks pretty much perfect for someone like me who's trying to decide between an RCLogger Xtreme or 350QX.

This is really going to heat up the market. 200-250 class brushless quads are going through the same revolution that micro quads went through a year ago.

Sooooo many choices coming weekly............

Yeah, I agree. I did not see a reason to buy the 180QX and the 350Qx was a little too much dough. I am still flying the Mqx with a V2 #16 and I really love it. I hope the 200QX will be capable of carrying the GoPro. I must say though the RCLogger Xtreme is still very competitive for $130 (half price of the 200QX) as my summer buy.

Yea but once you figure in the cost of making it compatible with a Spektrum TX and having to deal with proprietary battery plugs and no local parts availability, the gap shrinks quite a bit.

Plus I really like the internal LED idea. Not as blinding as something like the Alias at night but still looks plenty visible. Anyone see if the $229 price is BNF or RTF?

I like that it has a translucent body and it appears to fly just like the big one aerobatic wise. I have yet to see another FP quad that can flip in place like the 350qx can

That is the one thing I really was unsure about with the xtreme, sure they have posted some acro videos but I havent seen anything close to as capable as what the 350 can do and how it handles aerobatics. Though Maybe the rclogger guys will post a full aerobatic w/full rates video soon

Better price for brushless is what I like most. The 350 is pricey for a toy. Night flight and payload options are a bonus. I'm not impressed with the camera on the 180 either.

Blade/Horizon quad selection seems more like Samsung to me than Apple. Toss everything in every conceivable size/shape at the public and see what sells vs. perfect one and upgrade it every 12 months.

Of course, that was Steve's Apple. Things have changed.

Yeah. So much for buying an Alias. lol Though the Alias is really durable.
Well, if Blade was Samsung, then I hope it isn't running on Android. lol
Yeah, no Jobs, no innovation. Apple is now a company that just changes the size, color, and updates along with the rest.

What makes the 350QX a toy in your mind?

I don't think so, its the nature of this hobby. Plus I would not recommend this to a complete beginner with no experience but I wouldn't think twice with the 180qx IMO. But for $229, brushless mini 350qx it seems priced nicely. I also like the parts being available everywhere and I would assume the street price would be less than the msrp (hopefully). Looks like a win by watching the demo.
