Blade 230 S Helicopter (0) - Airplanes and Rockets

My Blade 230 S Smart helicopter was purchased in March of 2022 and is now for sale. I decided to sell because my eyesight is too poor to see it well at more than a couple hundred feet.

It has been flown only in Stability Mode and always with the training gear shown. When programmed per the user manual, the Blade flies very well and makes a good trainer. In order to make it even more docile, I set the GER and Stability controls to 150% and the servo throws to 50% (using my DX6 G3 transmitter - not included). With no wind it will hover hands-off. With the custom-made training gear, it has never even come close to tipping over.

Blade 230 S Helicopter (14) - Airplanes and RocketsThis is the Bind-n-Fly (BNF) version that did not come with a transmitter, battery, or charger. Everything looks brand new, and there is no damage to anything as far as I am aware. When buying the Blade 230 S, I bought a few extra parts I haven't needed. They are included, as is the custom training gear.

Please note, only the Blade heli and related parts shown are included. Transmitter, battery, and charger are not included.

Careful packing will be done to help assure the heli arrives unharmed.

Please look the photos over carefully and ask any question(s) you have prior to ordering. Payment can be made via PayPal.

Thanks for your consideration.

Shipping charges + insurance will be calculated based on the following from zip code 27406:

8” x 10” x 23”, 4 lbs.
