Closing the chapter on my B400

Posted 03-17-2008 at 04:01 PM by int2str

Today is the day. My E-Flite Blade 400 3D has been sold and it's waiting for me to ship it off.

The Blade 400 was my first "real" RC heli (not counting my Blade CP - which never really flew) and it's what got me into the hobby. After it being grounded for weeks due to parts shortages, I had bought the T-Rex 450S and have been flying that ever since.

So was the Blade 400 a good purchase? Absolutely! I would highly recommend it to any beginner. I think it's more than capable for any kind of hovering and sporty flying - even with a bit of wind. Does the T-Rex 450 fly better? Yes it does. Not enough for it to matter to a beginner though.

I'm keeping the DX6i radio. It's grown on me quite a bit and I hopefully will use it for quite some time. I fly my T-Rex 450 and my E-Flite Extra plane with it and have it setup to be used with RealFlight G4 as well. It's easy to use and even easier on the batteries.
