Rec'd my Blade Scout CX Beginner Coaxial 3 Channel
 
today, quick too, just ordered it wednesday...
Out of the box, boy is it tiny, everything looked okay, so I charged
the lipo, and inserted into heli, (read the manual first) then went
to back bedroom, away from cats and air flow, and started it up....
whoops, every time I spun it up it would set back on its tail!! After
awhile, I figured out this little guy just does not like the carpet, dont
know why...but I set up a tv table tray and it took off pretty well...
I had some bumps of course because I'm dumbthumbs and this is
my first little heli!!! But, all in all, I'm pretty please with it...I had
purchased a spare battery also...but just decided to use the enclosed
batt, recharged it once after the failed attempts off the carpet...will
charge up tomorrow and try some more...I think this one is going
to be great for an old guy beginner to play around with, have some
fun this winter instead of just staring at the teevee and the snow!!!
Much fun especially for just 50 bucks!!!:)

I know this is just a toy...but I have a blast with it this morn, got
a little bit of adjustment straightened out and it's flying great...
and for this old guy, not to crash and demolish it that is amazing ....
Have a good Sunday all...
:)

you're hooked lol. Try putting a small paper clip in the nose, forward flight will be much better

Still having fun with this little thing...flew today
and one wall bump caused the skids to fly off,
but just popped it back on and kept flying...
Took a chance and went outside but too much
wind even tho it seemed calm LOL!!
Still using original lipo and tx batt's...
Old guy is having fun with this toy!! :D

Here's my review posted on Horizon Hobby,
 
for the little Blade Scout...
""Got me into RC
PostedOctober 23, 2012
This little heli has been a blast for this 73yo guy..could never afford the RC hobby,
until now, and due to arthritis could not build anything. But this Heli is just what I needed
to get into the flying hobby...very very stable, and easy to fly, have hit the ceilings,
floors, walls several times, and the only thing that happened was the landing skids detached, but snapped them back on and flew again...I only fly it about once a week,
but still using original li-po battery, also bought a back-up battery, have yet to charge it..
I will be purchasing another of this heli for the time when I finally destroy it, but that
is not as easy as one might think from the price..
All in all this has been the perfect purchase for this old guy to have some fun in retirement,
even my doubtful wife is having fun watching me fly it.""
I'm still having a ball with this little thing!!:)
thanks
don
