New E-Flite Blade mSR X

The folks at E-Flite just released a new fix-pitched micro heli. It’s similar to the popular mSR except it’s flybarless courtesy of the AS3X Digital Flybarless system that’s already in used on the mCP X.

The new mSR X is touted to be a intermediate step up from the mSR, and not a replacement. Along with the upgrade to flybarless, they fixed some of the annoying things that initially plagued the mSR. Like the new cage around the tail motor which will help prevent the motor cap from popping off and destroying the brushes.

The mSR X comes with new 150mAh LiPo. Hopefully they are good quality cells, because it’s actually priced pretty reasonably at $3.99.

The mSR X is scheduled for a mid December 2011 release. Horizon Hobby will be demoing this new heli at the iHobby Expo being held this week in Chicago. I personally can’t wait to see how it flies and the mods that will inevitably come up for it.

        Its not the easiest to fly but if you bind it with a Programmable radio it will fly much better!

    Take this thing out and fly her in the open. I do. I have flown her in winds at 15 MPH. When I set her on the truck hood for lift off I thought the wind was going to blow her off the hood.
     Fly over grass and be prepared to land for low battery. I had this little helli about 2 trees top’s high and my battery went dead. I was flying hoops with her.
     She fell to the grass and broke both blade grip balls. That was it. I love this little helli and fly her alot. I have crashed her more times then I can count and only broke her once in that real bad dead stick crash.

    Awesome lil bird. Had it about 2 weeks and bought all the upgrades Rakonheli has for it and it not only flies like a bad ass outta hell but also looks like one too. Many mods and CNC upgrades out there already and all worth well doing.
