The Blade 550X is a ground-up designed professional series electric helicopter for the discerning expert pilot. From every angle and in every detail, the 550X ticks all of the boxes that a pro-level pilot could ever want for. Penned by the Blade team of highly driven heli pilots, the 550X has been created to provide the ultimate in response, feel, precision and control and to set a new benchmark for 550-size professional series performance.
The backbone of any high performance helicopter is its chassis and the Blade 550X certainly doesn’t disappoint with its Twin Vertical Plate design, CNC cut offering that’s produced from high quality bi-directional plain weave carbon fibre to provide exacting torsional rigidity and strength in all directions whilst keeping weight to an absolute minimum. Flex is banished in order to provide the highest possible levels of feel, reaction and control whilst in the air and the chassis is complimented by precision CNC machined aluminium alloy bulkheads that provide the necessary spacing for the TVP design whilst also providing solid and accurate location points for the servos, main shaft and running gear.
Flybarless head design means a low parts count, resulting in a simpler head setup and easier routine maintenance.
New to the Blade line up, the kit completion level gives the opportunity to build their helicopter, and use chosen servos, receiver, transmitter, ESC, motor, and battery.
The professional quality Revolution main blades included have the weight and CG made specifically for a flybarless helicopter. This provides incredible response and crisp flying characteristics while still maintaining great tracking through high-speed manoeuvres.
The torque tube driven tail efficiently drives the tail without robbing power, and the lack of a belt means there is no longer any need to constantly adjust tension.
Carbon fibre main frames provide an extremely rigid frame design.
Direct to swash servo setup provides for a lighter design than using mechanical bell cranks, eliminating slop build over time by reducing the number of linkages in the overall system.
Fibreglass canopy provides exceptional finish and durability included in the box.
Easy to install one piece landing gear reduces weight.
CNC metal parts deliver precise parts fit. The precision parts provide for Zero slop in all moving parts, which enable crisp response from the heli.
Sleek frame design keeps important components inside the frame to help prevent crash damage, while maintaining an appealing look.
Robust 10mm Hollow Main Shaft/8mm Spindle design maintains strength throughout the most advanced manoeuvres
Carbon fibre fins are lightweight, enhancing overall response and agility
