The Blade 230 S V2 Bind-N-Fly Basic Electric Flybarless Helicopter is perfect for anyone looking to hone their skills on a collective pitch machine. Building off the widely popular platform, this updated version adds key improvements geared at growing pilot skills. The redesigned ESC gives even more impressive flight stability and heading hold, creating a clean, confidence inspiring flight experience. Additionally, the tuned Spektrum AR636 with aluminum bottom case and improved damping makes this heli feel like a completely different machine in the air. Engineered around the abilities of innovative SAFE technology, its progressive flight mode system makes flying a collective pitch heli more comfortable, even if it’s your first collective pitch helicopter. A reinforced frame and main gear along with metal gear servos and ABS main blades can survive the learning curve and add confidence. The flight and strength improvements make this a blast to fly in your local park or backyard.

Based on previous helicopter experience, I used loctite on the feathering shaft to make sure I would not have a failure with the blade and grips. Flys great. Great product.
