This heli is the perfect step up from a coax. This bird you actually need to Fly! Its about a third larger then the mCX2 and its a bit heavier so you can fly it outside. Its Fixed Pitch so you don’t have to worry about the collective. It flies like you would control a heli on a video game. Its perfect for the backyard, even goes good in a light breeze! I have owned one of these for over a year and its definitely held up to more then a few rough landings. Very durable and powerful for its size. The coolest part is hearing the rotor wash from the 6.25” blades. Come down to the shop and check it out!

The Blade® 120 SR heli has a fixed pitch that will give you the confidence to master the basics of single-rotor flight. Its unique rotor head was specifically designed to provide the inherent stability of a coaxial helicopter, but provide the agile control of a single-rotor helicopter. Modeled after the popular ultra micro-size Blade mSR heli, the sub-micro-size 120 SR heli is larger, faster and more powerful—which makes outdoor flight a reality.
It comes out of the box 100% factory-built and equipped with a factory-installed 5-in-1 control unit with Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSM2®-compatible receiver, main motor ESCs, mixer, gyro and fully-proportional servos. A ready-to-fly version with 2.4GHz DSM2 transmitter and a Bind-N-Fly® version without transmitter, for those who already own a DSM2 aircraft transmitter, are available. Both include a 1S 500mAh Li-Po battery and a single-cell, variable rate Li-Po charger as well as an AC power supply.
