|Flight performance||I measured the hover
current at an indoor flying meeting using a
Hyperion eMeter v2 and Remote Data Unit.
The average current was 15.75A @ 10.96V (172W) when using a Turnigy Nano-Tech
3S1P 2200mAh LiPo pack.
The Blade 450X is extremely responsive but also pretty stable too thanks to the Spektrum Flybarless Control System. As my proficiency improves I should not be limited by the abilities of this helicopter.
3 Jun 13 - I continue to fly this models indoors on an occasional basis. It is a great helicopter and capable of things I'll probably never master.
18 Aug 12 - New model bought; decided I'd get another helicopter whilst waiting for the replacement Zoom 400 main shaft
