The Blade 180 QX HD Quadcopter is a ready-to-fly quad-rotor RC helicopter. "Ready-to-fly" means a transmitter is included, and that you only need to attach a few parts, charge the battery and follow the standard preflight configuration steps before you'll be up and running. It features a 720p video and 1.3MP still photo camera that mounts to the belly of the quadcopter using hook and loop fasteners.

The 180 QX HD incorporates SAFE, an assisted flying technology designed to help you avoid accidentally executing maneuvers that might send the aircraft into a crash. In addition, three flight modes are available, allowing you to select the level of maneuverability appropriate to your flying experience.

As with any RC aircraft, proper calibration setup and pre-flight protocols must be followed to ensure correct operation of the assisted flying system.

SAFE Technology
Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope (SAFE) uses multi-axis sensors and software to keep aircraft bank and pitch within a safe region
Three Flight Modes
Allowing you to choose the most appropriate balance of assisted flying and maneuverability for your skill level:
  • Stability Low Angle Mode: The easiest to pilot, in this mode bank angle is restricted to a minimum
  • Stability High Angle Mode: Allows the pilot to achieve the aircraft's maximum bank angle
  • Agility Mode: An expert mode that gives the pilot the greatest maneuverability. It negates the benefits of the highly automated stability modes, relying instead on the ASX3 3-axis stability system. Although some stabilization assistance is still present, the margin for error is much therefore this mode should only be used by experienced pilots
EFC-720 Flight Camera
Gives you the ability to capture 720p HD video and 1.3MP still photos to a MicroSD card in-flight. The camera features a 2GB card capable or recording over 30 minutes of video or storing over 15,000 photos. This can be expanded using MicroSD/ SDHC cards up to 32GB in capacity. The camera can either be operated directly using the settings on the camera itself or wirelessly via either the featured RTF transmitter or a compatible DSMX 5+ channel BNF transmitter
Receiver with Spektrum ASX3 Stability System
An advanced assisted flying technology that is designed to give experienced pilots maximum maneuverability without completely sacrificing the benefits of 3-axis stabilization. Because greater understanding of flight control systems is required to operate safely than when using the stability modes, modes that rely on ASX3 are not recommended for the beginner
Bind-N-Fly (BNF) Compatibility
In addition to the featured RTF transmitter, the 180 QX will also support many BNF-compatible transmitters. The BNF standard means a single controller can be used for many aircraft in your collection. A DSM2 or DSMX transmitter with at least 4 channels is required for aircraft operation and a DSMX transmitter with at least 5 channels, such as the Spektrum DX5E, if you also want to operate the flight camera remotely
Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC)
The aircraft automatically reduces power when the voltage approaches a minimum safety threshold to protect the battery from excessive discharge. Solid blue and red LEDs on the 5-in1 Unit indicate LVC has started and that you need to land immediately
