Default Blade 300X - video thread

Just received my 300X.





Checked it over and all seems OK; just had to loosen the main blades a little as they were too tight.

Gave it a quick tail-in hover in the garden, landed and checked the motor temp - luke warm.

When the weather improves I'll take it out on the field and give it a thrashing - actually I'm worried about spares availability at the mo. so I'll take it easy

I'll report back on the flight characteristics esp. compared to my old FB Trex 250.

If I can get my flying buddy out then I'll get some footage also.

I have got 3 nano-techs to try out also:

They are very similar in weight and dimensions.




Glad the UK weren't the first to get the 130X with all those tail issues

Default Maiden and second flight with my new Blade 300X

Hi guys! Just adding some "bad" videos from my maiden and second flight with my new 300X. I love this little bird, but I'm still getting used to the characteristics of it and the HH suggested settings on my DX6i. Will do some 3D later when everything has been broken in properly.

Maiden flight part 1 and 2



Second Flight with Blade 300X

Default Love this heli!

50+ flights on this bird already. Flys big but its small. Great bird to warm up with before the big birds come out, or just a quick flight on lunch break. Waiting on carbon blades.

I'm sure you will like them!!

I love that field, it's where I spend every day on my lunch break (and sometimes in the morning before work!). It's about 3 minutes from work

It's the same one I fly out of in my GoPro video - you can see the aerial view of it here:
