The original coaxial mCX was probably the biggest thing that has ever happened to RC helicopters. It was very small, it was very easy to fly, and it was durable. The similar mCX S300 was next. Recently we have seen the Tandem Rescue twin rotor co-axial helicopter. It was just as easy to fly as the original. This series of helicopters has introduced more people to heli flight than any other and even the experts are having fun with them. Now we have the mCX2, with new styling but the same flying characteristics. This new one is going to follow the tradition set using this intriguing technology—same size, same performance—but in an all-new package! The new full body gives it the look of a much larger helicopter while retaining the “attitude” that we have all come to expect. You can fly this one in any indoor facility day or night. The fun continues with the Blade mCX2.

Our video with Blade Product developer Mark Padilla will outline all the features of this new Ultra Micro Helicopter. Maybe it is time to get another mCX.
