It never fails. Get at least two pilots in a room with an E-flite Blade mCX micro heli, and it isn’t long before one of them starts the old “watch this” callout. Then, of course, the next guy says, “I can do better than that,” and the challenge is on. Since the amazingly dexterous Blade mCX can fly anywhere indoors, the challenge becomes which pilot can pull off the most creative maneuvers. In the end, the contest is a draw, but that game never stops. There’s always another table to fly under, obstacle to navigate past, or ledge to land on.

A few of us at Horizon Hobby used our lunch hour (and lunchroom) for a fun little competition. It only took us a couple of minutes to dream up the tasks and collect a few props. Maybe our video will inspire you to think up some ideas for your own impromptu event.

Important Note: No Blade mCX helicopters were harmed and no parts were broken during the filming of this video.
