I just got my Blade mCX2 a few days ago and I am already messing around with it's advanced settings. I've been letting my buddies fly it and they are getting the hang of it in about 15 minutes. I did a lot of research prior to purchase and this is THE one. It has plenty of speed, you can start with the beginner settings on the radio then move it up to advanced. Then you can adjust the swash plate for even more advanced settings. I'm ordering the tailboom which I heard helps it fly a little faster but the main benefit it less wind resistance and the adjustable counter weight. Great starter. Tons of fun.
