Blade 500 3D RTF
The Blade 500 3D is a 3D capable 500-class helicopter that's perfect for those flyers who want the smooth precision and stability of a larger helicopter but with all of the convenience of electric power.
Measuring 850mm in length and with a rotor diameter of just under 1m, the Blade 500 3D has all of the in-sky presence of a 30-size glow powered helicopter but with phenomenal instant power and torque thanks to its 6S 22.2V LiPo battery source.
The fly-bar equipped rotor head makes the Blade 500 ideal for pilots who are not yet ready to take the flybarless plunge and who either prefer the feel of the more traditional head design or who are not yet ready for the increased rotor speed and reaction that the flybarless designs yield.
The Blade 500 3D is available in either Ready-to-Fly (RTF) or Bind and Fly (BNF) formats; the latter of which requires the pilot to already have a Spektrum full range DSMX/2 compatible transmitter such as the awe-inspiring DX8 or DX7S. In RTF format, the Blade 500 3D comes with the superb Spektrum DX6i DSMX computer transmitter.Both come fully equipped with the E-Flite G210HL Micro Heading Lock MEMS gyro, a 70A S-BEC E-Flite ESC and the powerful E-Flite 520H 1320Kv Brushless motor. Spektrum Digital servos and a high-output 6S (22.2V) E-Flite 2900mAh LiPo complete the Blade 500 3D and complement its precision design and engineered airframe. And because it's a Blade, you know that it'll fly as well as it looks –right from the box. Just charge the battery, install the main rotor blades and carve up the sky.
Radio:The 6-channel DX6i 2.4 GHz DSM transmitter comes pre-programmed for experienced 3D pilots who are ready to get aggressive straight out of the box.
The DX6i also benefits from many other programming features like:
10 model memory
5-point graphic throttle curve
5-point graphic pitch curve
Adjustable dual rates and exponential
