The 450 is a better starting platform than the 400 is. I say starting platform because both birds need to be upgraded. But in my opinion, all Eflite did was to make my 400 obsolete for their financial profit. Am I going to run out and buy a 450? No. I voted #4

I voted "much better" for the simple fact that there is a BNF option. I might be buying one this summer after the initial field reports are in.

How can anyone cast a vote based on anything other than speculation, it's not out yet.

+1 The new servos, ESC, and gyro may allow this to fly perfectly without electronic upgrades. Based off of the promotion video, this looks very capable, but so did the mCP X.

Yeah, of course. Haven't had that issue, as with many others. Not denying it's existence, but not convinced of it's prevalence either. Too early either way at this point.

So if your gona buy the 450 and expect the same performance in there video,
be ready to buy every upgrade they sell, yes that's over 500$

My lhs owner has seen a demo, I ask if the demo was stock(bnf) or if it had the upgrades,
his answer was, well the motor was the 440, not the 420 it comes with, and blade recomends having the cnc head and tail upgrades(including cnc belt drive) when useing the high kv/power motor.

So that answers my question. For that heli to perform as well as there demo video its gona cost over 500$, at that point you can have a cf trex or gaui arf, maybee even cheaper
with proven parts.

Nice try eflite, ohh I mean" blade".
I would love to fly one, but I don't see my self spending 500 on a blade heli.
I guess my intrest is now gone.

My vote is based on cost of heli, I know its not out yet.

Where is your hobby shop and what is the number there? I would like to call and talk to the owner as ask directly how was the performance.

The 450 3D was at the RCX show and it does have the aluminum headblock, but this is STANDARD, the rest of the head and tail was plastic. You can clearly see this in the videos...

The product is STOCK in all HH product videos.

That is debatable. We know that the pre-production mCP X had a different 3 in 1, so we don't know which one was used in the product video.

We will all know when it is released.

You know alot of the bigger hobby stores get invited to these events,
ask around they might have seen one in action.

Default Blade 450

The Blade 450 will be a good BNF for those who have a DX6i or better. . Get a scorpion Motor if you want more power { E- flight motors dont last long } At least you can get re-build kits for the Scorpions. Then add C.F blades from Hobby King and your good to go. But no matter what way you go ,you cant compare these Heli's to a Align Heli. But for a entry level heli there awesome. E-Flight makes good heli's for pilots not wanting to spend a arm and a leg on replacment parts.{plastic is cheap and the way to go for the beginner pilot} If you going to get a Blade 450 and upgrading it with all the good stuff you might as well get a Align T-Rex 450 pro . My T-rex 500 esp is so much easier to fly than the Blade 400 my 400 now just sits in a box collecting dust. The 450 BNF might be worth trying out and will make a good 1st time 3D stunt dummy Heli. That way instead of taking any chances with my 500 esp. trying a new move out I would rather crash a plastic heli thats cheap to repair.
