Collective pitch mechanics are a key element to learning sport aerobatics with a helicopter. When combined with the durability of a 230-size heli, pilots get the "wow" factor in an airframe that's practical. Until now, learning with a collective pitch machine still had an intimidation factor. The Blade® 230 S collective-pitch electric heli is engineered to meet and go beyond the needs of the new heli pilot by offering a highly-tuned machine with innovative SAFE® technology so that it's easy for any pilot to achieve first-flight success, prevent crashes and then move on into advanced flight, all with one heli.

Three Flight Modes

- Stability mode- limited flight envelope with self-levelling and a bank angle limit
- Agility mode - full control authority for sport aerobatics with no bank angle limit
- 3D mode - turns up the flip and roll rate for 3D capability

Collective Pitch Rotor System

The collective pitch rotor mechanics of the 230 S have been engineered to give you just the right level of manoeuvrability for learning aerobatics and inverted flight.

Brushless Motors

The high-speed brushless main and tail motors work together to deliver a simplified drive system that makes the 230 S light weight so that it's quick in response to your commands.

Metal Gear Servos

The 230 S comes equipped with the same 9-gram, digital metal gear servos used for cyclic control in high-performance Blade mini-helis like the 360 CFX.


The fibre-filled plastic main frame is incredibly resilient. ABS main blades, moulded in bright-white material help with visibility and hold up better in a crash compared to wood blades.
