Any reports?

One thing I noticed is it is quite a bit more expensive than a 6s Trex 450L Dominator! Although it does have a Castle Talon ESC and an AR7200BX.

60% of the time, it works every time!

AR7200BX = $200.00
Talon 35 = $ 50.00

360 CFX = $250.00 (with blades,(4) metal servos, motor)
_______
total = $500.00

I don't think there is a better deal on any BNF 6S 360 class machine when you look at the total cost breakdown. Any way you slice it, any good FBL unit and ESC will set you back 250+

360 CFX
You build a Goblin 380 the way they want you to build it, your looking at $1000.00 or close to it, it's a good helicopter but it ought to be. Bobby(7200Bx now $139.99)

360 cfx
Just picked one up today and getting lipos in tomorrow. Seems like a nice heli for the money and flight performance I've heard is great so we'll see. Been wanting a good backyard bird. My 450x was decent with upgrades but heavy. This bird seems really light for its size and should fly more big and floaty, at least that's what I'm told. Looking forward to the 6s lipo power as well.

Well.... got to put a few packs through her and so far love it!! Way more hang time and easier to see, flies like a much bigger bird. I had a couple dumb thumbs and the bird just sat there waiting for the next input, I would of surely lost orientation on the 450x and it would have went in quick. If you're on the fence, get it, you will love it imho.

Got one a couple of days ago and so far so good.

Couple of issues though:

Gyro foam pad hadn't stuck properly and was a bit loose and the heli very nearly tipped over before getting off the ground! The problem is the countersunk screws holding the carbon gyro plate on aren't countersunk deep enough so the screw heads stick out which means the gyro tape doesn't stick properly and the AR7200BX feels loose/wobbly. I fixed this by using the small thinner pads that come in the box, one on each corner with cutouts where the screw heads are. Tip over problem solved.

One of the servos wasn't exactly 90 degrees and the swash was way off level!

The head block pinch bolts weren't tight enough causing the head block to rock on the main shaft! This shouldn't happen even if the pinch bolts were loose, the head block has obviously been bored too large.

The boom clamp closes up too far before it is secure causing the bolt to bow. Only flown it twice so mine hasn't snapped yet but there is a guy on Youtube who has had the bolt break twice! I may drill the holes out and replace with an M3.

60% of the time, it works every time!

I really like my 360 CFX. it's very quiet , smooth, lite weight and powerful , best Blade helicopter I've owned. My only issue is the canopy is small and harder to see compared to my X3 which is the same size helicopter however the canopy is much bigger.
