A nice cheap start for someone wanting to try helis. It appears quite durable with everything enclosed. I'm sure they will sell a lot of them.
It may even bind to the K110 radio which has a few more features.

FHSS means you can fly it with a Taranis with multiprotocol module, for example, that might be interesting

kind of a pity they didn't go DSMX and then you could go up spec on to a spectrum radio.
The esky XP version allows you to use any RX unit you want - i have a micro DSMX unit on mine. interesting that the esky standard unit is FHSS then and blade went with a rejigged esky TX unit - guess it was the lowest cost option, pretty decent price IMO.

Once parts are out and the price settles I'm gonna score a yellow blade canopy for mine. Blade owner can also go for the red esky canopy as well !

That's exactly what it is. The transmitter is an Esky one too which no doubt explains why it's not using Spectrum compatible DSMX protocol.

FWIW.. FHSS is a generic term meaning 'Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum. Pretty much all current 2.4GHz radios use FHSS principal, including Spektrum DSMX, Futaba, FrSky, JR, Groupner, Jeti etc etc..

Just because it says 'FHSS' does not necessarily mean it will be compatible with other FHSS systems.

Very good point JPF - It doesn't say S-FHSS so it might not be Futaba based.

if it's the generic esky deal then there is a deviation model for it.

the whole "thing" with the msr-x was
when you get flying forward and let go the stick the msr-x continues to go forward and will hit the wall or whatever is in its path until you "manually "correct it .

a flybar heli will stop in its tracks and hover when you stop giving forward input .does this new 70-s do that?
