Manufacturer's Description

Immediate 3D aerobatics — in Ready-to-Fly and
Receiver-Ready (Rx-R) versions!

  • 425-Size Brushless Motor
  • HM4000 Heading Lock Gyro

The Axe 400's stable, easy-to-adjust, belt-driven tail is topped off with white fins and white rotor blades that improve visibility.

The precise cyclic response of the Axe 400's Bell-Hiller rotor head contributes to smooth, accurate 3D aerobatic performance — as does the efficient direct link system of the 120° eCCPM swash plate.

In models with frame-mounted gyro servos, routine tail drive belt adjustment also requires changing the tail linkage. The Axe 400 simplifies the job by mounting the servo on the tail boom — no linkage adjustments needed!

Your battery pack straps into place on an easy-access tray, located for a neutral center of gravity that enhances 3D performance. Battery shown not included. Requires: 11.1V 2000-2500 mAh LiPo battery.

The resilient frame design — consisting of two injection-molded plastic pieces joined by screws — keeps on-board components easily accessible while providing the structural integrity needed for accurate maneuvers.

The quality of included electronics — and of the Axe 400 helicopter itself — makes this the perfect machine for any pilot eager to dazzle spectators with stunning 3D performance.

The Axe 400 includes the largest power plant of any ready-to-fly heli in its class — a 425-size outrunner brushless motor with built-in cooling fan.

The standard-size footprint of the HM4000 Heading Lock Gyro provides mounting stability, avoiding the "twitchy" performance of sub-micro gyros that mount on edge. Dual remote and mechanical gain adjustments increase its flexibility
