Genius or Madness?

I'd get it if I had enough money lol. It looks real nice. I'm curious to know how big it is compared to the Honeybee King 2 or Belt CP.

I am thinking about it. I need a computer tx and would like a little bigger heli than my King V2... Looks like a pretty good to me. I am not familiar with e-flight though... I here they are pretty reputable. The DX6i from what I have heard is light years better than the original DX6.

Hopelessly hooked
Once they are out, a few reviews are underway and I see parts on the LHS walls...then will I add one to my hanger.

I'd consider getting it if there was a kit. I already have a DX6 and that's fine for me. I think I've grown past RTF and would like to get my own electronics.

WOW thanks for sharing that link thats the best price I have seen or found so far!! SWEET...

BTW I would also like to see this come in KIT form that would be nice for a change.. The manf are making all this money on RTF with junk cheap electronics its only now have they started to sell some decent gear with the actual heli, plane, truck, car....

I saw the Blade 400 demo'd at IRCHA. Looks to be a very capable heli! If they had any for sale, I'd have gotten one right then and there. As of now, though, I'd wait for a kit, since I already have a DX7.

Horizon had 2 on dispaly.
Here's the stock one (notice the CP Pro for size comparison)



Here's the fully Blinged version. Carbon fiber mains, tail, fins, paddles, boom. Al metal head and tail. Optional canopy.



Here's the video of the demo. Sorry, the quality is pretty bad.... See those little specs in the air? Those are the Blade 400s. Believe me, they can perform! Looked real good in person...

I got mine on order. Saw the myRCSupply link, but not familiar with them, so I went "direct" to my other favorite online "heli" supplier and they offered to price match, free shipping and all. Why do that? myRCSupply, according to their website, precharges the entire purchase price immediately. Other only took a small deposit and will charge the rest before shipping. Cool, because I just sold my Blade CPP and Axe CP to get the money to pay for it when it arrives. Can't wait!!!

So will ya share the website you ordered it from there with free shipping? I'd like to pre-order one now if its not charged until they are in stock.. And free shipping is always a plus

Chriscru2 and chrise2, et aló

E-flite only sells Ready-to-Fly heli's. The Blade 400 is probably a good 400 class helicopter. However, as you are doubtlessly aware, E-flite gets top dollar for heli's and parts. Spares for the Blade 400 will be expensive compared to E-sky and Align.

I don't know. Shipped and RTF-- with DS75 Servos. If they're anything
like the S75, the blade 400 could be in trouble.

Have you had bad experience with these servos? Can you elaborate?

Thanks,
Greg
