• Simple and lightweight CCPM (Cyclic/Collective Pitch Mixing) control
• Aluminum and composite swashplate for added durability and precision
• Reliable and efficient belt-driven tail rotor
• 420H brushless outrunner motor, 25-amp brushless ESC and 3S 11.1V 1800mAh 20C
Li-Po battery for incredible power and performance
• DS75 Digital Sub-Micro servos and G110 Micro Heading Lock Gyro for precise and powerful control
• Spektrum DX6i 2.4GHz DSM2 computer programmable transmitter and AR6100e Microlite receiver

What are the flight performance capabilities of the Blade 400?

The Blade 400 is capable of everything from smooth hovering to 3D aerobatic flying right out of the box. This makes it a great choice for intermediate pilots looking for their first 3D aerobatic platform and mini-helicopter model, especially those who have already mastered flying the Blade CP+ and Blade CP Pro. It’s also an excellent choice for experienced pilots looking for a fully 3D capable RTF model.

What is unique about the about the included Spektrum DX6i transmitter and AR6100e receiver?

Perhaps the most unique feature of the Blade 400 is that it includes a Spektrum DX6i 2.4GHz DSM2 computer programmable transmitter and feather-light AR6100e Microlite receiver. This radio system combination provides freedom from frequency restrictions and interference, meaning you can fly just about anywhere, anytime. Plus, the DX6i’s DSM2 technology
offers other unique advantages like faster control response and innovative features such as ServoSyncTM, which automatically resequences transmitter data so mixed servos receive their pulses at the same time for maximum CCPM precision and response.

Other DX6i features include:
• Full-range capability
• 10-model memory
• Heli and airplane programming
• Two types of swashplate mixing: standard or 120º CCPM
• 3-axis dual rates and exponential
• Travel adjust
• Servo monitor
• Two 5-point throttle curves
• Three 5-point pitch curves
• Revo mixing
• Gyro sensitivy programming
• Two programmable mixes

The DX6i is not only perfectly suited for the Blade 400––it can also be used to fly just about any size and type of model due to its full-range and programming capabilities.
