Coaxial micro helicopters have been fun for everyone that has ever had a chance to fly one. They have introduced people of every age and ability to the RC hobby. Now Blade is showing us the latest new and updated mCX2. It has the same features as the original mCX but this one has more of everything. More power, more speed, bigger battery and a cool new body. Beyond these differences there are even additional improvements. We are going to talk about the changes in our video review, but I think you will agree the improvements make it fly better in every respect. However, it is still the easiest-to-fly helicopter there is—anyone can fly it. You will find that even young children will have it buzzing around the living room with no trouble! When you do crash into the TV, nothing will be damaged, but even so, all the parts are available for quick repairs. The mCX2 will have you looking for all kinds of new maneuvers to conquer with this latest micro Blade helicopter.

Take a look at our video of the mCX2 and see if you agree that this helicopter will have everyone in your living room laughing and wanting their own turn on the sticks!
