BLADE Pico QX Quadcopter
- Thanks to the simplicity of flying with SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology, you’ll be piloting this compact quad in no time.
- With flip mode functionality included, you can perform effortless single- or double flips like a pro with only the push of a button.
- Even charging easy, all you need to do is plug the included USB charge cables into a USB port and you’e ready to charge the internal flight battery or transmitter.
- The addition of propeller guards minimizes the effects of collisions and helps to ease new pilots into RC flight.
- In the event the propeller blades get worn out; four replacement blades are included with the Blade Pico QX.
- I would not consider this a beginner quadcopter, but if you have spent time flying something a little bigger, like the Nano QX, then you should be able to fly this one no problem.
- I would not recommend flying this outside unless there is no wind and you can keep it close to you.
- The range isn’t far and you could end up chasing it to get back into range.
- But when the weather keeps you inside, this is a great choice.
- Many of the smaller quads I have and have seen don’t offer prop guards or have a cumbersome add-on type prop guard that is somewhat limited.
- If you hit something from the side, it just bounces away and keeps flying.
- If you hit the ceiling, no problem, the blades and the ceiling are both protected, and if you land upside down, your props are still off the ground to help extend the life of your props and your motors if you are slow to throttle down.
- The slow rate is very manageable for small spaces, and the higher rate is very maneuverable for larger spaces or more experienced pilots.
- I wish my Nano QX lit up like this one so I could fly it at night.
- Update: After flying this for a few days, I am finding that the quality of this quad seems to be sub-par for a Blade product.
- I have been flying quads for a while and have other Blade quads that I love, but this one is turning out to be a disappointment.
- Although I have a lot of experience with CP remote control helicopters, I’m sure anyone can be competent with this thing in less than ten minutes, and doing REALLY well in an hour of flight time.
- Flight time is pretty short, since it’s too tiny to have much battery.
- I think I’m doing 6-8 minutes of flight time, but haven’t put a timer to it.
- It warns you of a low battery by blinking the lights and then slowly reducing power until the craft lands softly.
- Recharging it is pretty easy, it gets power from a USB cable so I’ve just been using a rechargeable USB battery pack to charge the copter many times before the battery needs a recharge.
- If it dies (by my crashing), I will not be so ticked off as I would if one of the bigger units were to die off.
- Did notice a minor learning curve (going from a bigger unit to this smaller unit) but not much.
- Keep in mind that pushing the right control stick down will enable “FAST” mode.
- I’ll see how my 5 year old daughter will fair with the unit.
