Blade CX4 Changes
When you first start flying R/C helicopters, it is inevitable that you will crash. What is frustrating is if you crash because the R/C helicopter you are flying did not respond quick enough to your input or it lost its stability in the slightest bit of wind. It is also frustrating if the blades hit an object and become compromised. Perhaps you landed too hard or at an angle and snapped the landing gear. All of these issues are very real and Blade has addressed all of them in the Blade CX4.
To address stability issues, the Blade CX4 is heavier and larger than its predecessors. The extra weight will allow the Blade CX4 to not be effected by a little bit of wind. Response time has been improved. Inputs on the transmitter are immediate. The rotor blades are now coated with rubber to withstand nicks from hitting objects. They are also hinged, so they will give in the case of a blade strike. The landing gear can now withstand hard landings with its shock absorbing landing gear. Another great new feature is that when you let go of the controls when you think you are in trouble, the Blade CX4 will correct itself and go into a safe hover.
