Default Blade Fusion 360

Whats the deal with the Fusion 360. No reviews to be found anywhere....? Is anybody buying this Heli...? or has the overpricing stopped anybody from buying it...? I had to ask.

The Fusion 360 is a good helicopter but I do think it's a bit overpriced right now. Don't despair or take too much medicine.

They clearanced the Fusion 270 ARF's at $130 US .. I bought two myself. Maybe they will do the same with the 360 or the 480 kit. I'd buy one then. I do like putting on my own FBL and servos of choice.

As I am in building Scale Modells, a complete Helicopter serves me better. Especially when equipped with Hardware working fine. As long as I can find a Trio 360cfx equipped with AR7210BX and three Blade Head, I will not be interested in the Fusion 360.
The Fusion might have advantages for 3D Pilots, I dont't know.

I'm thinking of stretching one of the 270's and using 325mm. The 280mm Zeal blades I bought had too small a hole and were much narrower than required. So those are now for my Oxy 3's. I believe the SAB 280 sizes are the proper hole and width if you want to try those.

it looks like Alibaloch94 uses Lynx blades 275mm on 2 of his 270 Fusions...not sure though.

https://www.lynxheli.com/index.php?c...e1b53eb616bc28

I'v been told the rotortech 282 mm blades are also a direct fit

The stock carbon blades from HH are very expensive compared to other brands.

Those say Oxy 3 so they are going to be much narrower than the stock blades (less width). I'm sure they will fly but you will have totally different characteristics. That what I found with the Zeal blades. I could have taken out the brass insert and used them but decided against it.

Take a look at the blades on this page for the Fireball 280:

Yup lynx 275’m

As they are only $12,

And i had alot of crashes setting up so i didnt want to keep buying the stock ones for $35.


Also i had to drill the holes a little bigger,

I did it at high speed and one size at a time.

Made them little bigger, still didn't fit, made them bigger some more.

Have been working great. I have drill like 6 pair of these

Just thought I'd post again here:


I just saw on the Horizon site that there is 15% off the price $549.99 for the 360 Fusion. I wonder how many are sitting in a warehouse not moving off the shelves.I'm starting to think this one was a dud. It Really seems nobody is buying it let alone posting videos or reviews...? or anything I haven't read about it yet...? Hmmm...?

It's just too expensive. I mean if you really don't want to build it, I guess it's an option, but really, the Align 470LP is a way better setup for less.

It definitely needs to drop a bunch more to sell. The size and the price just don't match up with other options.

Ya that's true. I find Horizon stuff grossly over priced on everything especially the Blade line of Heli's. The sad part is along comes some unsuspecting newbie who doesn't know any better and shells out that kind of $$ for a heli and then realizes he/she could have gotten an Align RTF (namely the 450LP) for less. Horizon has got to be more competitive in its pricing.

It's a good looking piece of machinery and I love blade's Fusion line. I only see one deal breaker and that's.... ==> the price.

I agree. Here in Europe, Freakware is a wellknown dealer. Offers the Blade Trio 360cfx for 548,99 Euro. This is not new, Price is stable since about 1 Year.

Equipped with AR7210BX (wich is a RX/FBL Combo with BeastX MB Plus inside) and 3-Blade Head, and 6S Setup, this Bird is stealing any chance to sell a Fusion 360 to me at same price

Sure a nice heli but in my opinion there`s no doubt, that this thing is definitly overpriced. In this price range people build helis themselves and choose components they want.

I think the 360 would sell much better, if the price is noticeably under 500 bucks, rather closer to 400 bucks.

Time will tell...

Well with the 15% coupon discount making it $467.50 was enough to get me a jump. When they have a new introduction the price seems to always starts higher. I suspect the 360 will settle in around this sale price.
I think it is a great helicopter, it is well built and fly's excellent. It is a much better machine than the 360cfx (I had one) and the flight characteristics are a lot better. Blade did a good job on this one. The only thing I don't like is the two extra canopy pins.
