The 3-in-1 ESC has two adjustments, basically the first pot labeled ‘Gain’ adjusts how sensitive the internal gyro is and the second pot labeled ‘Proportional’ adjusts the amount of power each motor receives while in flight.

Positive Temperature Coefficient PTC thermistors work by heat, as it heats up, its electrical resistance increases and eventually the resistance of the device is so high that the current through the circuit virtually stops flowing, once the PTC is cooled normal operation returns.

This may not make a difference if you fly inside alone but out on the field with others you will appreciate the stability DSM technology brings to your RC Helicopter. Your model is also equipped with over-current protection devices that are installed in-line with the positive wire lead of each main motor.

You must include this request with your item submitted for service. If you as the purchaser or user are not prepared to accept the liability associated with the use of the Product, purchaser is advised to return the Product immediately in new and unused condition to the place of purchase. Click blave to see a full-size exploded b,ade. DSM divides the 2. I had purchased the training package but I was perhaps a little to over-confident and skipped it’s installation, now I probably should have used it as I had quite a few blade strikes trying to master the Helicopter.

I had an issue with my Blade Cx2 as the tail kept slowly rotating to the left no matter how much I adjusted the trim on the transmitter, I resolved the tail drifting problem by slowly adjusting the ‘Proportional’ pot. Your new Blade CX2 model is equipped with additional accessories and features that further enhance its durability and performance.

So a catch 22 so to speak, you can install the training kit which will prevent a lot of blade strikes but as you are close to the ground the flight mechanics are not the same as when hovering at more normal heights.

An Online Service Request is available at http: Support Manuals Discontinued Products Articles. Proof of purchase is required for all warranty claims. The 3-in-1 Control Unit installed on your model is a lightweight combination of main motor mixer, main motor electronic speed controls and a rate-mode piezo gyro. The solution was to create an easy to fly helicopter that was inexpensive enough for almost anyone to own, after cxx2 few models have come and gone we end up with the E-flite Blade Cx2.


In the unfortunate event of a crash or rotor blade strike in which power to the main motors is not reduced entirely and immediately upon impact, the polymer material within the PTC resettable ccx2 will begin to heat and expand.

This expansion will reduce current flow through the fuse, helping to limit and prevent potentially damaging over-current situations for the ESCs contained in the 3-in-1 Control Unit EFLH Law These terms are governed by Illinois law without regard to conflict of law principals. However, the 3-in-1 unit also features unique software that allows the main motor mixer and rate-mode piezo gyro to be disabled. The photo above is of the twin motors and after a little research they appear to be ‘Mabuchi’ FK SH motors and are rated at 7.

What is it about Helicopters and Planes, the freedom of driving in a three dimensional space or the cool factor that makes most of us who have tried RC vehicles yearn to own one.

By submitting the item for service you are agreeing to payment of the service without notification. The advent of RC Flight simulators has helped tremendously as we can crash the virtual helicopter or plane bladee often as we like without the costly repairs until we mange to fly straight and true but the cost of this type of system bladf still expensive enough that most of us will probably never use it.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and lbade may also have other rights which vary from state to state. My advice is to remember when training you will be flying low to the ground but that creates a problem of it’s own because the air generated by the blades rotating in flight has a tendency to create a back-draft that throws the helicopter off as you get close to any walls or furniture if present.

Horizon Hobby — China RoomNo. The charger is rated at 0. The manual suggests you find a fairly large room to fly indoors and that goes double for training as you’ll need lots of space and height until you cxx2 understand the controls.

Be smart and purchase a least one extra battery when you pick up the Blade Cx2 because you’ll be running for the charger fairly quickly. The E-flite Blade Cx2 is a complete package that includes everything so that you will be ready to fly the moment you open blase box. I also suggest to be very careful with your movements as a full forward stick along with momentum gained requires twice the distance to reverse without contacting a wall or obstruction.

If you have any issue with a LiPo battery, please contact the appropriate Horizon Product Support office. Although the PTC resettable fuses offer over-current protection never before available in micro-class coaxial helicopter models, it is still important to properly care for your Blade CX2 model while also learning the skills and good habits that will allow you to properly care for your future helicopter models: The Blade Cx2 is the first ready-to-fly aircraft of any kind to come with advanced 2.

By the act of use, setup or assembly, the user accepts all resulting liability. I found them to be very quick, responsive and very accurate. The transmitter will sound an alarm if the voltage indicated on the LCD falls below 4. A copy of your original sales receipt must be included for warranty consideration.

Please note that original boxes may be included, but are not designed to withstand the rigors of shipping without additional protection.

I have one regret and that is related to the battery life, maybe I’m expecting too much as minutes seems to be the average flight time reported by others but once you start flying it seems so darn short! The secret to this type of helicopter is the use of counter-rotating blades otherwise known as a Coaxial design.

In addition to the 2.
