The Spektrum ARe receiver blxde on your model weighs just 4. The prohibitive cost of these type of RC’s meant you had a very cs2 investment in a product that literally crashed and destroyed itself if a skilled operator was not at the helm. Although the PTC resettable fuses offer over-current protection never before available in micro-class coaxial helicopter models, it is still important to properly care for your Blade CX2 model while also learning the skills and good habits that will allow you to properly care for your future helicopter models: If you would like to contact me for any reason then feel free to use the contact form by clicking Here.
As Horizon has no control over use, setup, final bllade, modification or misuse, no liability shall be assumed nor accepted for any resulting damage or injury. The unit is well built and has full trim control along with an extra channel that is currently not is use by bladw Cx2. When flying higher say close to your shoulders this problem is minimized but if you are still in training this will make it impossible to simply throttle down as you will be dropping from a height that is guaranteed to damage the helicopter.
Blade CX2 RTF Electric Coaxial Micro Helicopter
I found that when you are slowly adding throttle both rotor blades should begin to spin at the same time, if the upper or lower spins before the other you probably need to adjust the ‘Proportional’ pot and this should be done before your first flight.
In addition you will be billed for return freight. Be sure your name, address, and RMA number are clearly written on the outside of the shipping carton. In the unfortunate event that the inner shaft is bent in a crash, replacement shafts are available separately EFLH Horizon reserves the right to inspect any and all Product s involved in a warranty claim. I had purchased the training package but I was perhaps a little to over-confident and skipped it’s installation, now I probably should have used it as I had quite a few blade strikes trying to master the Helicopter.
If received, a non-compliant Product will not be serviced. This expansion will reduce current flow through the fuse, helping to limit and prevent potentially damaging over-current situations for the ESCs contained in the 3-in-1 Control Unit EFLH No assembly is needed, and there is nothing left to buy.
Just power up and fly. This will enable Horizon to better answer your questions and service you in the event that you may need any assistance. The optional training gear set EFLH, sold separately makes learning to fly the Blade CX2 even easier than it already is by adding more stability and helping to prevent blade strikes.
The 3-in-1 ESC has two adjustments, basically the first pot labeled ‘Gain’ adjusts how sensitive the internal gyro is and the second pot labeled ‘Proportional’ adjusts the amount of power each motor receives while in flight.
E-flite also offers bladd number of aluminum option parts for blsde Blade CX2 including: Your new Blade CX2 model is equipped with additional accessories and features that further enhance its durability and performance. This may not make a difference if you fly inside alone but out on the field with others you will appreciate the stability DSM bladf brings to your RC Helicopter. So a catch 22 so to speak, you can install the training kit which will prevent a lot of blade strikes but as you are close to the ground the flight mechanics are not the same as when hovering at more normal heights.
Your model is also equipped with over-current protection devices that are installed in-line with the positive wire lead of each main motor. Positive Temperature Coefficient PTC thermistors work by heat, as it heats up, its electrical resistance increases and eventually the resistance of the device is so high that the current through the circuit virtually stops flowing, once the PTC is cooled normal operation returns.
The aggressive new body design looks great and is unlike anything else I’ve seen on most RC helicopters E-flites choice of Red looks better than the Yellow used by the Blade Cx it replaces. Click here to see a full-size exploded view. My advice is to remember when training you will be flying low to the ground but that creates a problem of it’s own because the air generated by the blades rotating in flight has a tendency to create a back-draft that throws the helicopter off as you get close to any walls or furniture if present.
I also suggest to be very careful with your movements as a full forward stick along with momentum gained requires twice the distance to reverse without contacting a wall or obstruction.
Helicopters apparently are the hardest to master and require many flight hours before gaining the required skills to really enjoy owning and operating it. Proof of purchase is required for all warranty claims.
This photo shows the ‘Swash Plate’ that is adjusted by two Sub-Micro servos one is visible in the photo the S60 servo’s used are bladr 6. The left stick when raised will start the coaxial blades turning and is notched to allow you to hold a specific height easily, bringing this stick to the left or right brings the tail cx the helicopter in that direction.
Instead of a tail rotor, the Blade Cx2 uses differential rotor speed for tail control so the inherent stability of the counter-rotating blades is preserved in all phases of flight, making this a helicopter just about any first-time pilot can enjoy. The Blade CX2 coaxial, counter-rotating blades cancel out the rotational torque that makes hovering a conventional heli so difficult.
Once assembly, setup or use of the Product has been started, you must blads your local distributor or Horizon directly.
E-flite Blade CX2 R/C Helicopter Review
The solution was to create an easy to fly helicopter that was inexpensive enough for almost anyone to own, after a few models have come and gone we end up with the E-flite Blade Cx2. The 3-in-1 Control Unit installed on your model is a lightweight combination of main motor mixer, main motor electronic speed controls and a rate-mode piezo gyro.

DSM divides the 2. There is no tuning and no channels to select.
The battery has two connectors one is for charging and the other is to connect to the Helicopter RC system. I have read that higher capacity batteries can be bought. Crash damage is NOT covered under warranty.
Fly the helicopter with small inputs as it can get moving quickly and wind up someplace you’ll regret later a wall is not fun to hit. I noticed a Heatsink is available as an option for the motors but I haven’t found the motors to run very hot, mind you I only have run blad for minutes at a time with average bldae input. This photo is the bottom of the Helicopter, the opening with the gears is the location of the battery compartment gears are further down the battery just covers the view and you can see the gearing used to power the pair of coaxial rotors used on the Blade Cx2.
