I happen to get my hand on the blade 180 today and man' talk about insanity ......!
This thing is off the hook.
This thing look unbreakable except for the servo.

The blade 130 and MCPX , Rex 150 can all park now,

I got custom canopy/Blade it now look like a small adorable beast

The 360 look like a Rex pro but fly awesome with 1800KV motor 6th bat.

I was waiting on some honey but there aren't no Queen bee,

I had one for a few months. For it's small size it flew well and had plenty of power. I think it's their best micro helicopter to date.

Mine has potential but I'm really fighting the tail. It is great one direction but acts like way too much gain the other. If I turn down the gain enough to get rid if the shudder, the tail doesn't have enough gain to hold. Not sure what to try.

I'm sure you've done all these things but based on my limited experience with the model please check the following:

1. Update the firmware

Watch at YouTube

2. Check the torque tube for damage the ends break easily
3. Balance your tail blades and make sure they are tight enough in the grips that they don't twist but they drop with gravity
4. Check the tail block to make sure the tail tube is firm and isn't being rotated by the tail rotors when it spools up
5. Check the travel on the tail pitch slider, make sure you have full travel across the tail shaft and that the tail slider is not binding
6. Make sure the tail, struts, push rod, fin, and tail shaft are lined up correctly

I'm sure there are things I've overlooked but perhaps something here will help.

By far bro,

I sack Mines up real good on the maden and only a blade grip damage,
I put some fancy blade on and a custom canopy that match the blade, I use the blade 130
After market tail blade.

It does every thing in the name of 3rd flights easy.

I'm flying a 180. You will want to either do the "servo mod" or refit the servos with metal gears or both. Replace the swashplate with the MicroHeli aluminum replacement, and upgrade the landing gear after your first crash.

Otherwise a very nice flying little heli.

Check the Facebook page 180CFX for some good advice also.
