Nice

Blade® Fusion™ 180 - BNF Basic Collective-Pitch Helicopter (2 min 12 sec)

4S - Yikes! Shares some parts with 180CFX/Trio. AUW - 240g !
Might need to swap in XT30s though ...

Looks amazing! The price is awesome.

Under 250 grams too!

If it flys as well as the 180cfx and has these durability upgrades this thing will be pure awesome.

Wait - 4S or 3S ? There are conflicting callouts between the manual, video and website ...
Maybe dual capable out of the box (?)

So, if I put together two of my 150X packs, I'll have a 4s pack at 600 mAh for the 180.

We (I) need some additional specs:
  • # of pinion teeth
  • # of main gear teeth
  • Part number for recommended E-Flite lipo (for size, weight comparison)
  • BEC current capacity
  • BEC type (switching/linear)
  • Default headspeeds per setup in manual
  • Who's thumb is that in the motor pic?
  • etc. etc. etc.
I do not like 'mystery' ESCs at all.

I have the good old 2 blade... and a Fusion 270... this looks like what you'd get if you bred them

^I made one of my trios 2 bladed. used the grips from the trio and cut off the pitch link guides on a 130s rotor head. also used the 2 bladed 180cfx swashplate.

it looks exactly like what blade did on this fusion 180 model. they're using the trio grip style and looks like a new rotor head design. I thought of that first! lol

my fusion 270 mostly sits. it has bad shakes on idle up 1&2 (servos twitch). Im stuck on stability mode if I want to fly it. any ideas to fix that?

yes, reduce the cyclic d gain, mine shook like a wet dog on iu2 when I got it... get out the manual and follow along the first time you change it... it sounds a whole lot harder than it is

Both 3S and 4S batteries are listed as optional parts. If indeed the ESC is dual 3S/4S compatible, I wonder how will that work out. Surely, there is a huge difference in headspeed between 3S and 4S using the same motor with the same pinion?

I saw on fb, a recommendation by HH to change to the older 180cfx motor if 3S is desired.

That is good to know, I have just bought a new 180CFX motor. My batteries are quite new as well.
