We were super excited when Bladez Toys sent us over their new X-Bladez RC Stunt Quadcopter and John couldn’t wait to put it through it’s paces.
This is what he said:
“Wow what a huge, substantial box! The imagery alone makes me want to get the quadcopter out straight away. Giving in to my feelings I quickly slid the polystyrene block out of the box and sitting comfortably inside was the RC Stunt Quadcopter.
It only took one quick glance to know that this was the ultimate in quadcopters and I couldn’t wait to see what it could do.
The X-Bladez RC Stunt Quadcopter is available from Amazon
Setting it up wasn’t rocket science (it was quadcoper science ha ha!) and once removed from the box I charged it up for slightly less than an hour – which would give me up to 15 minutes flying time. I thought the spare blades were a nice touch.
Don’t worry if your not flight savvy as on the LCD display screen you can easily change the flight difficulty levels. As I’m not an acomplished pilot I opted for the Beginner level, but you can choose from Intermediate, Advanced and Pro levels. I think this is a great idea as the more your flying skills progress the further up the levels you can go.The stunt quad is a whopping 65cm in diameter and has a maximum range of 100 metres, don’t even attempt to fly this monster indoors – this is definitely for outdoors only. Having read the instructions – please make sure you do this before flying – I certainly wouldn’t let anyone under the recommended 14+ age group use it.
Make sure to take a good look at the handset controls – this piece of advice from the enclosed user guide certainly helped give me the confidence to take it out for a trial run (make that flight!)
I took some time to work my way through the user guide it but it did help me get much more from the R/C Quadcopter. Before I knew it I was flipping 360° and by keeping it a minimum of 3 metres from the ground I got the full visual effect.In what seemed like no time at all I was connecting up the water blaster and had a whale of a time with this fun feature, next up was the missile launcher which yet again was great fun. My favouite, however, was night flying, since it now gets dark around 5pm, I grabbed the opportunity and switched on the LED lights and lit up the sky with my after dark flying skills, the 4 individual rotors allow the X-Bladz Quad to hover seamlessly and the effect is amazing.
Did I like the X-Bladez RC Stunt Quadcopter? NOPE – I absolutely LOVED IT!!! This really is in a league all of it’s own”
