This is the Blade Inductrix Ready to Fly Ultra Micro Electric Quad-Copter Drone. Utilizing an Electric Ducted Fan (EDF) system, the Blade Inductrix is part jet, and part quadcopter! The cylindrical rotor housings add significant durability and when carefully tuned, produce a smoother flight with less noise. The Inductrix ultra micro drone features innovative flight technology and is a machine you can fly just about anywhere, with a performance edge that makes your flight experience more fun than you could imagine. Brilliant LED orientation lights and a sleek body design make it easy to keep going in the right direction. When combined with SAFE® technology with self-leveling, staying in control is effortless, even if it’s your first time behind the sticks!
- SAFE® Technology: Exclusive Horizon Hobby SAFE® technology combines small pitch and roll angle limits with electronic self-leveling to help you stay in control and have more fun.
- Quiet Ducted Fans: Four carefully-tuned electric ducted fans offer smooth performance that produces far less noise compared to normal quads that use propellers for thrust. The stealthy result is a machine that’s less intimidating with the appeal of a jet aircraft.
- Durable: Each cylindrical rotor housing ducts air through the high-speed rotors, and provides an inherently durable structure. You can bump the Inductrix drone into practically anything with little risk.
- Visibility: Brilliant LED lights are located to provide instant orientation reference. The clear rotor housings keep your view unobstructed and add an unmistakable glow to the airframe.
- Li-Po flight battery: The E-flite® 150mAh 1S 3.7V 30C Li-Po flight battery, included, can provide up to 5-minutes of flight and can be conveniently recharged with the included USB charger.

Also, the quad is extremely sensitive to throttle input. I would tap it up and it would raise a few inches, then drift around unstable because of ground effects. Another tap up on the throttle and the quad is bouncing off the ceiling. There doesn't seem to be a way to do as the instructions say and just hover it a few feet off of the floor. Even the smallest inputs would bounce around. I tried using the stick button to switch modes, but neither mode made any difference in behavior that I could find.
All around a disappointment.
