Blade 450 X out of the box with no adjustments 3D flight!
Hi all,

I received a Blade 450 X this week. I managed to record a few flights yesterday before the rain, the only problem was that my current 3S packs are all over 3 years old and with 100+ cycles on each. These packs are not much good on my Trex 450 Pro but with the Spektrum AR7200BX flybarless system and low weight of the Blade 450 X I will be able to get a few more flights yet out of them.

I started off with 450 sized models and flew them for two years or so before purchasing a larger helicopter, I have always loved this size for their nimble response, no hassle and low cost. It's nice to see over the years how the size class has progressed.

This was out of the box with no adjustments at all, the only thing I did was remove the horizontal fin and cut the top off the vertical one as I dislike tail fins on a 3D heli.

This helicopter feels and flys very light, it is super stable but while still having a super fast roll/flip rate. I'm actually just using the manual's recommend settings for my Spektrum DX8. I haven't even messed with the tail gain settings but it seems to hold just fine, using a sub-micro tail servo seems unusual on a 450 to me but this is a great weight saving measure. The flybarless also helped a lot in the wind, my flight case blew over but this heli stood a much better chance than 450's usually do. I found the same when I converted my Logo 500 to flybarless.

I can't wait to try it out with some new packs, these ones are really past their best.

To sum it up, I feel that it is amazing how well a heli can perform in 3D flight straight out of the box.

Cheers,

Laurence
