New Blade nQX Announced, Due Mid-June

Blade has been a bit behind in the super small quadcopter market. Heck, even Traxxas beat them to the punch, and HeliMax gapped the field with their immensely popular 1SQ. I even named the 1SQ as one of my "Hits of 2012". But the playing field is about to get evened out.

Today, Blade revealed their newest helicopter, the uber-tiny Blade nQX. It's about the same size as the 1SQ. But it has some cool tech inside. It features SAFE, the beginner-friendly technology, that helps prevent beginners from getting into unfortunate situations. It also has, as you can see in the picture, built-in blade protectors to prevent striking the propellers on the wall.

The Blade nQX comes with a 150mAh LiPo battery, USB charger, two canopies, and extra propellers. It will be avialable in Bind-N-Fly or Ready-to-Fly for $69.99 and $89.99, respectively. It's due out Mid-June. Pre-Order one now, because I suspect we'll be selling out of them quickly! Video is after the break.
