The Blade 130 S Bind-N-Fly Basic Flybarless Collective Pitch Micro Helicopter is a powerful, sub-micro sized collective pitch helicopter with SAFE® Technology. Self-stabilization, panic switch and three progressive flight modes give intermediate to advanced pilots the confidence to master 3D flight indoors and out. The 130 S builds on this popularly sized heli while adding significant improvements such as SAFE® Technology, a powerful, low maintenance direct drive tail motor, and improved linear servos. A strong frame gives you the durability you need, while brushless motors provides the power and performance you want.
- SAFE® Technology: 3 flight modes, Self-leveling and Panic switch help you fly confidently
- Durable: Molded, lightweight plastics allow the 130 S to be very durable in the event of a crash
- Collective Pitch and SAFE Technology allows an intermediate pilot to grow with the model when they're ready for aerobatics and 3D flying
- Direct drive tail motor—powerful brushless motor improves durability, flight performance, and simplifies repairs

Tail Holds very well
Good flight time
Can fly anywhere, no need for a field to do some 3D
Doesn't like wind above 15MPH (expected)
Canopy is so flimsy, get a CF canopy
Overall very happy with it. This has a permanent spot in my fleet!
Using tamed down settings makes this helicopter easy to fly for a CP heli. I have flown it in calm to 7 mph winds. It holds nicely. Personally I would not fly in winds greater then 10 mph. You may be able to pull it off if you are an expert RC pilot with proper settings in your radio. I have had one crash because I used recovery mode indoors. You probably need some altitude and space to implement this mode. I changed the main gear and blades in about a half an hour. Except for the servo that is mounted between the main body, maintenance seems to be not so difficult. Battery life is not good. As an easy going flight, I would not fly beyond 4 min. Maybe some aftermarket batteries will be available.
