Like the original Blade® mCX heli, the Blade mCX2 heli is easy enough for anyone to fly and small enough to fly just about anywhere. The mCX2 heli has the same coaxial, counter-rotating rotor head design as the current mCX heli, but it adds an extra shot of excitement with user-selectable swash sensitivity and flashing LED lights that are built right into the body. The pilot can change the control settings to enable this heli to perform at higher speeds than the beginner settings. This helicopter also boasts heading lock-like performance for maximum control. It also boasts more powerful motors and a higher capacity 120mAh battery pack. The mCX2 heli is the ultimate beginner-friendly machine with unsurpassed stability, incredible control and extreme durability.
With a factory-installed 5-in-1 control unit with Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSM2®-compatible receiver, main motor ESCs, mixer, gyro and fully-proportional servos come pre-installed. This Bind-N-Fly® version without transmitter is perfect for those who already own a DSM2 aircraft transmitter. The ultra micro size and weight of the Blade mCX2 heli make it possible to fly this heli anywhere indoors.
It all adds up to more fun than you ever thought possible with a coaxial ultra micro heli, whether you’re a newbie or a pro.
Aircraft transmitter equipped with Spektrum™ DSM2® technology.
I have had an mCX for a year (and also an mSR) and just recently bought the mCX2 so I could hand the mCX down to my son. The mCX2 does everything just a little better than the (already great) mCX. With the links on the inner swash balls it is a little faster than the mCX, and the new motors are noticeably more powerful. The full body is much more pleasing to look at and the LED lighting really adds some 'bling' to it. Orientation unfortunately is a bit difficult in total darkness, the LEDs are not so much for night flying as just for adding some interest to the heli. Run times are just under 7 minutes to LVC. Like all coax helis, it cannot tolerate wind and so cannot be flown outdoors unless it's dead calm. But it's fantastic for indoors- very quiet and very stable. Great for flying in the living room!
I have never flown anything RC before and purchased both the Vapor and the Blade MCX2. The MCX2 is so easy to fly. I was hovering within the first 3 minutes. It hit the tile floor & kitchen cabinets a few times but still kept right on working. I look forward to many hours of learning and having fun with my new Blade.
I purchased the Blade CX2 last year and could not get it to fly right. It was never trimmed correctly and by the time I would finally get it trimmed out, the battery powered would have lessened enough that an entire new trim setting had to be used. I gave up on flying that thing after about 10 flights, and decided to just stick with rc planes. But after seeing this micro one fly in the store, I decided I had to try it out. Its only $90 bucks too! Not $200 like that red waste of plastic that now is collecting dust on my shelf. This thing flies FANTASTIC!!! I love it! It is incredibly stable and it doesn't require a new trim setting every minute as the battery discharges. It is so easy to fly and I was doing tricks on my first flight. And the lights make it even more incredible. I would definitely recommend this Micro CX2 to a friend.
After owning several foam micro helis then heavy, metal frame micros, I had just about given up on any dream of performance or decent run times from small indoor helis. Seeing a friend's mCX2 perform changed all that. MUCH more powerful that the $30 packaged helis; easy to pop it right off the couch into the air, and seldom fly it at more than half throttle. 7-8 minute run times with a 150 mAh battery. Very stable for beginners, but by shifting the links to the longer throw arms and with 100% servo rates on the radio, it's pretty quick for indoor flying. No 3D stunts from a coaxial heli, but that's not why one would buy the mCX2 anyway. Very durable, no damage from a handful of crashes (all user error). Solid control from the Spektrum system, in contrast to limited and intermittent control from the IR system of the cheaper helis. Interchangable batteries make it easy for everyone to have a turn flying. Everyone who has flown it has loved it. Best $90 RC expenditure yet.
This was my first RC so I wanted to start slow. I bought the MCX2 for the upgraded performance/look over the MCX I read about on the net. I was impressed with the appearance right out the box and it flew perfectly with no adjustments required. I knew I would be addicted so I opted for the DX6i and the BNF version. I've already purchased four choppers in as many days all BNF of course. As an aviator, the only negative I have is it could move around with a little more speed. I've not tried the higher performance balls on the swash, but I believe that will fix my craving. An absolute blast for the price.
My first heli was the Scout. I played around with some other brands of near the same price and quality. The move to Blade MCX2 was awesome! It's easy to fly, can take a licking and keep on ticking. I highly recommend this unit for shear easy fun!
First needed a new 5 in 1 board then a motor for the upper rotors and now the motor for the lower rotors is out. Seems this is just an example of fix or repair daily. Would strongly suggest looking for a better quality product.
On the fourth flight of hovering in my kitchen, the helicopter began making a whining sound and descended onto my kitchen island. It landed perfectly but no longer has the power to fly. The bottom motor or gears sound is not connecting or something. Anyway, after four flights, what once was a nice helicopter is now trash.
