BLADE CX by E-FLITE


I'm new to micro-helio flying, I've heard that this model would be GENTLE to my flying capabilities I had been envolved with RC models, and have built a few, what I am looking for is an indoor helio, living room etc.
I presently have a BladeRunner, I can make it hover but the Transmitter seems to jerk and the responce is tough.
My question to you folks is this (Blade CX by E-flite) a proper choice and should I get the training gear & engine heat exchanger?
Thank you in advance, this is my first entry to this forum.
P.S. I am a retired com/instr/instructor/ pilot.

I saw this when it was released in October at the trade show in LA and it was a very nice heli for the beginner. Well made and nice constructed. This sounds like it would be the perfect heli for you and later once you have really caught the bug you can go to the original blade heli.

Eagel1 -

The Blade CX is perfect for any first time pilot due to its unsurpassed inherent stability. You can be successful hovering the model just minutes after opening the box, while also learning the skills neccessary to move into larger, more capable models (Like the Blade CP).

And just a quick note for those interested...

Keep an eye out for Blade CXs on the shelves of your favorite E-flite dealers in the next week

The question should be how different is it from this other than the price?
