  • 180 CFX BNF Basic

    From the masters of micro-heli innovation is a 3D machine that breaks all the rules of performance. That’s because the Blade® 180 CFX packs everything you’d expect from a 700-size, pro-class electric heli into a ballistic machine you can 3D just about anywhere. Digital, rotary servos are mounted inside carbon fiber frames with optimized servo geometry. Our Spektrum™ AS3X® flybarless system now includes piro-compensation to offer control that’s kinetic in every orientation. Because performance is nothing without power, a high-speed outrunner, Castle ESC and 3S Li-Po battery deliver incredible authority to both the flybarless head and torque-tube driven tail rotor.

    Never has a micro-class heli been made so capable. Never before has it been this easy to get a high-performance 3D heli.

    Optimized Servo Geometry
    Optimized servo geometry virtually eliminates mechanical inefficiency by keeping swashplate links near vertical throughout their range of motion. The result is a flawless cyclic and collective response that feels almost telekinetic.

    AS3X® Technology with Piro-Compensation
    The Blade® 180 CFX heli utilizes Horizon Hobby’s innovative AS3X® flybarless technology that now features advanced piro-compensation for unrivaled performance in a helicopter of this size.

    Castle Creations ESC
    The reliability of a Castle Creations Talon 15 speed control assures great performance for even hard-core 3D flying plus pilots will enjoy the convenience of having motor timing and optimal governor settings pre-programmed.

    Rigid Carbon Fiber Frame
    The carbon fiber side frames sandwich aluminum bearing and mounting bocks for a structure that is as durable as it is integral to precision control.

    Nanolite Receiver
    The Spektrum™ AR6335 6-channel receiver features AS3X flybarless technology built-in to deliver high-speed stability and precision that’s compatible with your favorite programmable aircraft transmitter with Spektrum DSMX® technology.

    Nanolite Rotary Servos
    The all-new Spektrum rotary servos feature conventional rotary movement and digital precision with a response speed to meet the demanding workload of flybarless mechanics.

    Brushless Outrunner Motor
    The high-torque outrunner motor installed offers pro-level power and a 5800Kv output for aerobatic performance that doesn’t lag behind.

    3S Li-Po Power
    The included high-output E-flite® 450mAh 3S 11.1V 30C Li-Po battery offers the performance hard-core 3D pilots demand.

    Torque-Tube Drive Tail
    The torque-tube drive tail system features ball-bearing support inside an aluminum boom that connects at the tail rotor to a strong one-piece tail case.

    Best Micro Heli Ever






    I used the settings recommended in the DX8 manual to bind it to the plane, and everything was perfect. The only adjustment I made was adding sub-trim to the pitch to get 0° at mid sick. It is extremely agile, has tons of power, is very fast, and the new piro compensation makes this bad little heli fly amazingly. (Yes, it has a small tail twitch that I only notice at a hover, but it affects nothing when it comes to 3D Smack.) I might buy another one for a backup and a dozen batteries. I can't change my one battery fast enough. The Blade 180CFX is an amazing little machine. Blade has just set a new standard in micro helis. Everything else in comparison is archaic. Great job HH.
