Default E-Flite Blade MSR X Hover Indoors RTF

The RTF MSR X is responsive but able to hover the RTF version. Expo better with example DX6 make life easier. Have flown some CP models, this one certainly to be fun. Not a newbie flyer, when your ready to move up.

Tho it may be abit of a handfull with the RTF transmitter, has a faster response than the MSR, makes controls somewhat coarse, quicker to over control but does work. Read where novice flyers had issues just on the take off, indeed pulls smartly to left, momentary right correct timing improves lift off. Stay alert as can get in trouble blink of an eye, but soft on the stick flights rapidly get much easier. Meanwhile enjoying it's swift flight, it does have a touch of self control on a slow right rotation if trimmed, still be ready !

Wish to add mine was pre trimmed as received, the main blades too loose, so be sure to make them snug enough to hold position. RTF version included correct small screwdriver. If you elect to maiden indoors have more room than shown in my videos, gym would be great. As with most helis power down when you get too close to obstacle as wall, will prevent any damage. This one needs more continual correction than example easier to fly MSR, might think of it as a near CP or MSR on touch of steroids. Wow, I like this one so far, varooooom!

Tho continual stick mostly needed on this model, is a brief hold response even during a slow rotation, stay alert. Here is a brief clip shows it's touch of hold tho brief.

The RTF version will work, but found coarse on controls especially indoors, so bound with my DX5e to soften inputs and indeed responds more user friendly. Here is my procedure on binding to the DX5e.

The DX6 would give more expo for better results, but sure many have the DX5e available, example for the BNF version.

Got mine a couple of hours ago. Nice heli but it needs two mixes to fly perfectly. In standard trim it does not like turning left on the tail rotor.Turning left induces a left bank and causes the heli to drift rearwards. Turning right is fine. You need a radio with mixing capability to do this (dx6i/dx7/dx8 etc)

Mix 1..........Rudd-Aile hold rudder to left and adjust to -30
Mix 2..........Rudd-Elev hold rudder to left and adjust to +40

Both mixes are selected to on so can't be turned off accidentally.
This will stop the heli from drifting left and rearwards when you turn left on the tail rotor.

You know when your mixes are right when with the heli powered up when you move the rudder stick to the left the swashplate will move to the right and down at the front.

No Worries. With those mixes in it flies like a very quick 120sr.

Using the DX5e, improvement over the MSR X RTF transmitter.

120 SR It's a great Heli, easy with the DX5E. Fun now with the MSR X, getting better with each flight, showing more solid flying now in the living room. This model matches my current flying abilities very well !

Moments ago living room
