Strengths:
very stable. . . .
Weaknesses:
Not foun any yet !. . . .
Overall:
Was looking to make the next step up from the little micro cp helly so went for the Blade 300X I was not sure if I was ready for the Blade 300X but was surprised to find how stable the 300X is, you can put it in to a hover and go home for a cup of tea and it will still be hovering in the same place when you return. For someone lokking for the next step up from the little mirco cp helicopters this one I can recommend. I am not up to 3D flying yet so can not comment on how the 300x is in that department but is is a really good helicopter to move up to after the little micro helicopters. .

Strengths:
Small size, build quality, very good manual, very responsive (for the expert). . . .
Weaknesses:
Not a coaxial follow on, manual settings are too sensitive if you are not a very experienced heli flier. Lots of addendums to the manual. . .
Overall:
I've been messing with 400 and indoor sized heli's for several years and while competent at hovering around I'm a long way from fully competent. I'd broken my 400 which was getting long in the tooth and the flybarless design and inbuilt stablisation Rx appealed, so although the box said experienced only I took the plunge. The manual is very good and with explicit set up instructions for various Spektrum transmitters (its DSM2/DSMX only) I soon had it set up on my Dx6i, but the normal setting of 85% rates and no expo where too much for me and I've dialed it down to 65% rates with 30% expo and at those settings I'm confident hovering it around. I can't comment on the 3D performance as thats way beyond me, but the response is very quick and direct and in the right hands I'm sure it will do the book.
