The Blade® Inductrix™ ultra micro drone has the modern appeal of a jet with EDF power that makes far less noise while innovative SAFE® technology with self-leveling makes staying in control easy, even if it’s your first flight.
The time has come for Electric Ducted Fans (EDF) to replace the old propeller thrust systems. By design, the cylindrical rotor housings add significant durability and produce less noise when carefully tuned. The Blade® Inductrix™ ultra micro drone is part jet and part quadcopter, with the kind of innovative flight technology that gives a machine you can fly just about anywhere, the performance edge that makes your flight experience more fun.
The Blade® Inductrix™ drone is an ultra micro machine that can be flown just about anywhere. Four specially tuned EDF rotor systems give this modern quad the appeal of a jet. As a result, performance feels incredibly smooth with far less noise than a conventional propeller rotor system. Durable rotor housings inherently prevent damage whether it’s bumped into walls or falls into the grass. Brilliant LED orientation lights and a sleek body design help keep you going in the right direction. Innovative SAFE® technology with self-leveling makes staying in control easy, even if it’s your first flight.
With the Blade® Inductrix™ quadcopter, anyone can fly with little effort. Exclusive Horizon Hobby SAFE® technology combines small pitch and roll angle limits with electronic self-leveling to help you stay in control and have more fun.
Four carefully-tuned electric ducted fans give the Inductrix™ drone smooth performance that produces far less noise compared to normal quads that use propellers for thrust. The stealthy result is a machine that’s less intimidating with the appeal of a jet aircraft.
Each cylindrical rotor housing that ducts air through the high-speed rotors provides an inherently durable structure. You can bump the Inductrix drone into practically anything with little risk.
Brilliant LED lights are located to provide instant orientation reference. The clear rotor housings keep your view unobstructed and add an unmistakable glow to the airframe.
The E-flite® 150mAh 1S 3.7V 25C Li-Po flight battery, included, can provide up to 5-minutes of flight and can be conveniently recharged with the included USB charger.
With a single Spektrum DSM2®/DSMX® aircraft transmitter, you hold the key to a fleet of Bind-N-Fly® aircraft that includes everything from tiny Blade® helicopters and quadcopters to giant-scale E-flite® airplanes.
Good store experience. Great secure ties with no cost Amazon back up. I like that. Got the two Inductrex "Blades" after seeing them on FliteTest Vlog. Unpacked, read the directions, loaded batteries in controllers (got two of them so I could fly with grandson), then loaded battery into inductrex. Quickly placed it on flat surface, it bound to the controller no problem, it flashed a couple of times then when solid color showing that it had calibrated...
We flew mine for 3 batteries worth. At first couldn't keep it between the floor and the ceiling...(auto stab was a god send...calibrating the stick bias was no problem...just take off a little bit, and land quickly, if it headed off in some direction, press the button on the controller in the other direction a couple of times ... after some of that we got it to rise nearly straight up. )
Started working on altitude control...(Just like you recommended on your video...hover, out/back/side/side, walk the dog/ figure 8 then go for it)...well went through 6 batteries on my quad and was getting pretty good at altitude control (if you keep your left thumb moving all the time to compensate for altitude, it doesn't try to follow the right thumb for direction control as much...that helps keep the quad stable).
After a few flites, started to try to land on chair and stuff...bad idea...should have stuck to the plan...had a few crashes, but only one or two serious ones where I lost altitude control and rather than trying to save it, I dumped the power and it came down pretty hard.
When i recovered the quad, i noticed that it didn't want to go up, but just scoot across the floor...also noticed that when I held the quad down on the table and ran the motors, one of the props didn't start until lots of throttle was added...and when you pulled off all the throttle, it stopped spinning first. (I found a video on how to change the motor on the quad on the internet ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DE-vDLLrCj4 ) ... pulled the motor out, pulled the prop off and cleaned the lint that had built up around the motor shaft...didn't help...so ordered some replacement motors...
Borrowed my Grandson't inductrex, and it failed the same way after about 6 batteries. I had lots more experience by then and the crashes were not that bad...so, I'm suspecting that there is something about early lifetime failure rates on those motors that it coming into play.
The new motors are on the way...
Dissajppointed... Tom Talley on 20th Feb 2017
Good little drone. Having fun with it all the time inside. Will be better if it can do altitude hold. Package with 2 extra battery will be a love. Supong on 23rd Oct 2016
I think this product is the best for newbies. Durability is incredibly good. Seungeun Kang on 5th Aug 2016
This is the first rc aircraft I've ever purchased or flown. It's incredibly easy to learn to fly and really easy to have fun with. The third time I flew it I looped it successfully. It also handles crashing very well. The only complaint I have is the battery sits just a little too loosely so when you have a crash or rough landing the battery may slide out of place changing the center of balance and throwing off the flight characteristics. This definitely isn't a deal breaker as I give the product 5 stars. Also, be warned if you have pets and you crash into a pet hair clump it can be tangled in the rotors pretty easily. Fixing this is simple but requires a bit of disassembly. Chris on 30th Jan 2016
