Interesting! New fbl controller coded by Brian Bremmer. Fully integrated with Spektrum. Nice.

Looks nice, but is it going to be totally over priced.

SAFE and Panic features will be made available at a later date via a free firmware download. You will be able to enable and disable the functionality as you desire.



The release date will be provided as soon as possible.


Thanks and Best Regards,

Looks really nice with the HW ESC etc. Just may have to pre-order one to test out. I need a new summer toy and money isn't a problem. And I'm one of the few who hate building.

Being able to buy a quality BNF heli with good after-sales customer support is, in my view, very important to the hobby. I know if it wasn't for Blade and its BNF products (and the positive experience I had with them) I never would have gotten into helis in the first place.

Here's to hoping you do well with this new line, Blade.

I'm hoping this new FBL will work out. It would be nice to have a solid FBL that is integrated with my DX9.

Oxy 4 is ~$300 + electronics unassembled kit.



Align 470LP (p stands for plastic head I think) is $479


$549 for a BNF with all of these high-end parts seems reasonable to a novice like me...

Look around the Classifieds you can find deals, I just got a Oxy 4 dude said it had 8 flights but i couldn't see it, it looked brand brand new when i got it, the skids were still nice and clean.. picked up to my door for $220 and then used all electronics i had laying around to build it.. I think i got pretty lucky tho.. its not 360mm right now but he did give me the extended boom,belt, rod, ( brand new in pack) so with a set of blades it would be a 360mm machine..


I got a Oxy 2 recently off ebay for $155 in the end, and paid $55 for a FBL unit for it. picked up few batterys, so i have about $225 in it. having a blast.


but i understand what your saying. I really hope it turns out to be a awesome machine, hope the new FBL controller is really good too.

I have no confidence in their proprietary flybarless controller or their motors. The heli looks nice and wished they had a kit so I can put my own electronics in it. I wish they would release this heli with options like they did with the 480 fusion. People who want a kit can get a kit and people who want a BNF can get a BNF.
