I only flew a Blade 450 Demo unit at my LHS for about 5 min or so, but as i recall it was better than the 400 they made for years and I learned on myself. If you don't have any expansion packs or add-on's i would suggest using the Dominion 450 3D. I would kinda steer clear of Swap page Helis for RF 6 as the physics may need to be tweaked a little. reading the info on the Dominion 450 3D it states it was based on the Blade 450 too.

Or you can use s swap page heli in 6 and fix the physics, and help us all out.

Friends don't let friends fly Blade 400 or 450... buy Trex, Trex clones or go home.

I know another user recently requested a Blade 450 heli and it just didn't click with me that there was a 450 blade. I thought they were referring to the Blade 400. I just searched and there are 3 different versions. The Blade 450 X doesn't seam bad. I don't know much about that Spektrum flybarless system, but I'm going to look into it.

They are using the BeastX for their Flybarless system.

I picked up a Blade 450 3D a couple weeks ago. I've had it up once between snow and ice storms. Definitely not something that I want to try in the basement. Still occasionally crashing on RF6, so I am not in a big rush for the snow to melt. Been practicing with the Dominion 450 3D. There are a couple larger helis that fly about the same. I use them too cause I can see them better father out.

That's Great. I myself used G4.0 and 4.5 to learn to fly as nobody I know around here fly's heli's and could teach me and my first was a Blade 400 3 yrs ago. I still have it and it must have at least a thousand flights on it by now but i have moved on to bigger and better things now. Don't get discouraged and just know EVERYONE crashes. You need to MASTER the helicopter in the sim before you transfer that to real life flight and make sure you have all the physics set to as high as it can go.

As for the people that dislike the Blade Heli's I think that is very narrow minded thinking, sure its not "as good" as something from Align but then again Align isn't "as good" as something from say Kasama, MSH, Avant, or Goblin. I have had a little stick time on a Blade 450, and it's not THAT bad. definitely better than the Blade 400 was out of the box and i would compare it to a Trex 450 Sport or something like that but with less power. I LOVE my 500EFL Pro but i know its not the best nor do i claim it to be and I am looking at my next helicopter as being one of the 4 I just mentioned. I have had a Trex 450Pro as well. And as for my 400, i still have it and probably always will as a first heli as it still works great and i can fly it right now, It's been converted to all Aluminum parts, bigger motor ESC, Servos, Gyro, Etc, and I may even consider converting it to Flybarless with the Blade 450 X parts as many 400 and 450 parts are interchangeable. That's what is great about them as it gives beginners the opportunity to do some of the upgrades themselves and to learn what makes something better or not.

People that are getting into this hobby need to start somewhere and Blade Helicopters i think really cornered the Market on this with price for performance, and with the Blade 450X Flybarless, Blade 300, and the soon to be released Blade 500's I think its only better for the Helicopter hobby.

I will say one thing about cheap heli's, Stay away from Heli Max Axe CP, I did have one of those and it was by far the worst piece of garbage i have ever flown, it was repaired 5 times under warranty by the factory due to electronics going bad and burning out and still would burn out tail motors in a hover. It gave me great pleasure to Stomp that helicopter into a million pieces.

I will get off my Soapbox now.
