Blade: #1 BY DESIGN
Blade 450 X

OVERVIEW

The Blade® heli development team has decades of combined RC experience designing or flying everything from ultra micros to high-performance 3D machines. If anyone knows what awesome performance looks and feels like, they do. It’s their expertise that makes the new Blade 450 X the ultimate 450-size ready-to-fly heli experience. Not only does it come packed with great features such as the lightest airframe in its class and rigid head design, but it also comes with a new helical main drive system to make the heli quieter and all-new digital metal-gear servos to enhance precision and durability. At the core of its awesome performance is the Spektrum™ AR7200BX Flybarless Control System; a remarkable advance that combines a 7-channel DSMX™ receiver with BeastX™ 3-axis MEMS stabilization into a single, lightweight unit. This, combined with a high-output brushless power system, a vibrant new canopy and carbon fibre blades means that you’re in for a spectacular 3D heli experience.

If you are an intermediate RC pilot looking for a high-performance 450-size helicopter, but don’t want to build or set up one from scratch, the Blade 450 X RTF is the answer. Best of all it’s already been flight tested with the Spektrum™ DX6i DSMX transmitter in the box. So all you have to do is charge the Li-Po battery and go flying.

Blade 450 X Overview

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF BIND-N-FLY® The 6-channel Spektrum™ DX6i 2.4GHz DSMX® transmitter comes pre-programmed so you’re ready to get aggressive right out of the box. You also get the benefit of the many other DX6i programming features like 10-model memory, 5-point graphic throttle curve, 5-point graphic pitch curve, gyro adjust, adjustable dual rates and exponential plus so much more. It also has an extensive list of airplane programming features too so you can take advantage of every Bind-N-Fly® aircraft offered by Horizon Hobby brands.

NEW HELICAL MAIN DRIVE The new main gear and motor pinion feature helical shaped teeth to provide a drive system that’s quieter.

NEW METAL-GEAR SERVOS The Spektrum digital, metal gear servos for the cyclic and tail rotor control are specially designed to deliver maximum power, high speed and precision for extreme 3D heli performance with an added level of durability.

CARBON FIBER MAIN BLADES The included high performance 325mm rotor blades minimize weight without giving up any strength so you can aggressively push the limit of your 3D abilities with complete confidence and absolute precision.

RIGID HEAD BLOCK Stiff 80-durometer dampers, along with the carbon fiber main blades, allow you take full advantage of the exceptionally crisp response BeastX flybarless technology offers. The extremely rigid, CNC machined lightweight aluminum head block provides maximum precision during 3D maneuvers.

COMPOSITE ALUMINIUM/FIBER REINFORCED SWASH PLATE The combination of aluminum with a lightweight fiber-reinforced material keeps swashplate weight to a minimum without sacrificing strength or precision.

TRIPLE BALL BEARING SUPPORTED HARDENED STEEL MAIN SHAFT
Ball bearings support the main shaft at the top and bottom of the drive gears, as well as the top of the frame.

E-flite® 440H 4200Kv BRUSHLESS MOTOR This proven brushless motor will consistently deliver more than enough power for demanding 3D maneuvers.

E-flite 3S 11.1V 2200mAh 30C Li-Po BATTERY The high-discharge rate of the included battery pack provides the robust power you need to explore the farthest reaches of aggressive 3D flight.

E-flite 35A S-BEC BRUSHLESS HELI SPEED CONTROL This robust speed controller is engineered to efficiently channel the high-current flow of most any high-C 3S Li-Po battery.

ALUMINIUM TAIL BOOM The stiff, aluminum tail boom and carbon fiber tail boom supports keep tail performance crisp and precise.

TAIL BLADE GRIP THRUST BEARING SUPPORT The smooth, efficient belt drive is complemented by the durability and precision of thrust bearings in the tail blade grips.

WEIGHTED TAIL BLADE HARDWARE Specially weighted blade mounting screws boost the speed and precision of the tail’s response and reduces tail servo load during hard 3D maneuvers.
