There is nothing more fun per
ounce than flying the E-flite® Blade® mCX heli.
Especially when it comes to trying new tricks and
risky maneuvers. The fun stops only when you finally
break something. Now, you really do have to try pretty
hard to break this little
wonder although I have
been able to do it.
But don’t worry, it can be easily fixed.

This tiny heli is a true hobby grade model
and all the replacement parts are available
to fix even the worst of disastrous
events (such as when the dog
grabs it out of the air).
Mark Padilla and
I are going to
help you get started.
The only tool you
need is the tiny
screwdriver
included in the box with your
mCX. Replacing parts is fun and takes very
little time so you can be ready to fly again before
the battery is charged. In this video, we will show
how to replace the upper rotor blades, the flybar,
the upper rotor shaft and the 5-n-1 unit.
