This is my Blade B400 variant that has the new AS3X SAFE modes added. The modes are tied together with flight modes on Channel 8 as follows:
Back is Normal Mode with SAFE Beginner
Middle is Idle up 1 (IU1) with SAFE Intermediate
Forward is Idle up 2 (IU2) with AS3X (For full 3D)
I hope this lets you see what it's like flying a Blade heli with these modes. It's actually quite easy in the beginner mode like it is on their 230S model. That heli taught me how to fly more than any. As you progress you can go up in mode. Give heli's another try if you gave up before. Maybe you'll consider a real Blade heli if you haven't in the past.
