Flying helicopters has been a really fun experience for a huge number of RC pilots, thanks in no small part to the excellent flying characteristics of the many Blade® helis from E-flite.  The CX series and the really tiny mCX series of coaxial helicopters has made it practical for almost every pilot to be successful the first time he gets hold of one.  The dual rotor coaxial helis are undoubtedly the easiest to fly, and they enable a pilot to progress to higher performance collective pitch helicopters such as the CP Pro 2 or Blade 400. We were able to talk with Ryan Witchey, Helicopter Category Manager for E-flite, about the specific features of each Blade heli.  Our video interview outlines how the Blade lineup provides helicopter choices that allow a new pilot to progress into higher performance helicopters as he develops his own flying skills. It seems there is no end to the fun people are having with the various helis from E-flite.

Watch our discussion with Ryan and learn about each helicopter in the E-flite® Blade line. We think you will find this very informative and it will give you a chance to consider which heli is the best choice for you.
