Blade Nano CP S Review, A Little Tricky!

Blade Nano CP S ReviewWell here is an interesting little heli. This is a brand new model from blade and an update from the Nano CP X which has been discontinued. I purchased one of these because RC I thought the price was really good for a collective pitch rc helicopter. Here are my thoughts and my Blade Nano CP S review. You will also find a price guide at the end if you decide to buy Blade Nano CP S.

When I saw the size and weight of this model it caught my attention. This is a very small and lightweight collective pitch model. Most CP helicopters are much larger in size and are for outdoor use only because they are dangerous to both kids and property. This little guy on the other 3 hand is designed for indoor flight. I think Blade decided that they needed an entry level model for practice purposes.

The good thing is that because it is small, the Nano CP S is safe for kids and around the house. Unfortunately, that’s about all that’s good about it for kids though! It is really difficult to fly and both me and my older son (8) have not been able to keep it under control for more than a few seconds at wholesale mlb jerseys a time. It does have what they call SAFE® technology and panic recovery which I will discuss a little later in my review. They really don’t help a huge amount with this model though!


  • Blade NanoCollective pitch type rc helicopter which allows full 3D flying and aerobatics, in the right hands that is! In the featured video at the end of this review you will see what it is BA! apparently capable of doing.
  • It has SAFE® technology which is a feature in most of Blade’s newer models. It is supposed to make learning 3D Blade helicopter flight more easy and fun by providing a variety of different flight modes. The Nano CP S has three which are stability wholesale mlb jerseys mode, agility mode and 3D mode. None of them have helped me in the slightest though. Stability mode locks the pitch of the rotor blades and is meant to provide a much more stable flight. The other two are the more advanced modes for performing aerobatics. Even in stability mode, I can’t keep it under control very well!
  • It also has what they call a panic recovery button. This is a very neat little function and when pressed, it immediately stabilizes the helicopter to a level altitude. It’s a bit like an autopilot!
  • It is lightweight (1.130oz) and seems to be rather durable. Considering the amount of times I have crashed this thing already, I have seen no real damage yet. I am not sure how it will hold up when I crash trying to attemp 3D flight. It’s weight also allows for it to be flown indoors.
  • A removable battery backs allows for a quick change over. This is very necessary on this model because the flying time is only about 5mins in stability mode. Even less in the other modes!

Blade Nano CP S Review Conclusion

After writing most of this review, I have just spent the last hour attempting a few more flights with the nano. I must admit that with a little practice I am getting better. I have just been able to achieve a semi controlled flight around my garden in stability mode (at long last!). I really don’t think that my kids are going to be able to do this for some time though.

This Blade Nano CP S review may sound a little harsh, but I am sticking to the purpose of my reviews which are for parents looking for some information about whether or not these products are suitable for kids. In the case of the Blade Nano CP S, I feel that it is just too advanced for kids. It’s not dangerous at all but I think that most kids will give up after the first few attempts and throw it to the back of a cupboard!

However, the price is very reasonable for a collective pitch helicopter and, if the controls can be mastered, 3D flight is awesome fun as can be seen in the demo video below. If you are looking for something that is easier to fly for younger kids, then look at the Blade Scout CX instead. Also check out the Syma X5C quadcopter as an alternative.
