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.
