The CX3 finally has a HH gyro. It looks a lot nicer too.

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.

No more tail drift as the motors change temperature...at least in theory.

Hello all. I have been reading the forums for a couple of weeks now. I suppose now is as good as any time to make a first post.
I am an RC Monster nitro truck owner looking to expand my RC hobbies. So I had to come up with something that wouldn't make me go broke. So I said to myself " self, I know what I need... I need an RC Heli!"
I have been looking at the Blade CX3. I do have a question. How does one remove the fuselage on the CX3. I see no body joints. Does it split in half? I do hope it is released as planned. I was just about to buy a CX2. I think I will hold out for the CX3.

Boy did you pick the wrong hobby to get into! Your first heli will be like a gateway drug, getting you hooked and wanting for more.

i would definitely spring for this, for the CX3, if it fits. the Heading says BCX/2/3, but in the list it states alternative to stock CX and CX2 bodies. i hope it will go on the CX3 too.

  • Great-looking alternative to the stock Blade CX or CX2 bodies
