HP Heli's X-2

350-Size Outdoor RTF Co-Axial Helicopter

Co-Axial Helicopters revolutionized RC helicopters. Today the X-2 Revolutionizes Co-Axials.

This is the Hobby People Heli's X-2 350-Size Outdoor RTF Co-Axial Helicopter. Finally, a co-axial made for the real world - for beginners and experts alike. Fly outdoors. Fly in wind. Fly fast with authority.

The X-2 helicopter is perfect for learning to fly. It's the ONLY helicopter with multiple control settings from beginner 3-channel to high-performance 5-channel. You'll find it stable and very easy to hover, which is perfect for indoor flying. Plus, it's easy to see because it's larger than most co-axial helicopters. The X-2 is simply easy to fly.

However, we mean fly, not just hover. Because after you've got hovering down in 3-channel mode (or even 2-channel altitude-limit mode with the additional Flight Height Limit Device (sold separately), only the X-2's unique patented 5-channel mixed anti-wind tail rotor design can fly in windy conditions. What's more, it has proper control authority and the power to fly FAST for advanced pilots. The experienced helicopter pilots call it Fast-Forward-Flight. Experienced or not, you'll call it EXCITING. From learning to hover in 3- or 4-channel mode to flying fast outdoors in advanced 5-channel mode, the X-2 is the most-fun, most-exciting co-axial available today. You'll never look at co-axials the same way again. Join the X-2 Revolution.

Optional Parts:

Several option upgrades are available for the X-2 to make your flying experience even more fun:

• 166206 Flight Height Limit Device - X-2 (Option) - This unique device is an on-board rpm governor that controls how high the X-2 can fly, regardless of throttle stick position. Perfect for beginners to prevent fly-aways, its also great for advanced pilots wanting to carry a camera or other expensive devices.

• 166207 Light Set - X-2 (Option) - Want to fly at night? Want a visual assist for orientation? This light set is made for the X-2 and plugs right into the 5-n-1 Rx board for ultimate convenience and compatibility.

• 166201 Brushless Conversion Set - X-2 Hopup (Option) - This brushless motor/ESC system has two motors and two ESC'sl custom-made for the X-2, to provide the utmost in power and efficiency. This gives the X-2 a 6-8 ounce payload capacity.

• 166208 Aileron Power-Assist Set - X-2 (Option) - Upgraded to Brushless motors? Need more aileron authority? This Power-Assist for aileron control gives the X-2 the same authority for aileron control as the tail motor does for pitch control. Never has a co-axial had so much control-authority and maneuverability in wind!

• 166212 Landing Gear For Video Camera - X-2 (Option) - Carry a Go-Pro or similar camera (not included) with ease. This add-on landing gear is fast and easy to install and allows the X-2 to carry a Go-Pro Video Camera! This landing gear is also great for those flying in tall grass. Note that carrying cameras or other payload adds  weight and stress to the motors. We recommend the brushless upgrade for carrying any cameras that weigh more than 2 ounces.

Setup Notes:

1. The X-2 is the latest generation of the Extreme Flyers X-350. This new generation has vastly more advanced electronics that make the TX and RX 5-n-1 incompatible with the X-350.

2. The X-2 uses a new battery plug. Plug set and Charging adapter is available. Item No 166325.

3. The new X-2 uses a metal-weighted flybar and the link is adjustable. This adjustable link is used to change the relationship between the flybar and the top blades. This creates a control for eliminating oscillation during hovering.

best trainer heli Review by Armando

great product. no problems after 25 flights. I have not had the motor issues other reviewers have. almost ready for cp heli. (Posted on 9/1/14)
great heli Review by Matt
Rating
I bought this last Christmas and have been flying it on average about once a week. A great product. Many hours of flying with limited damage. So far, I have broken blades and the landing gear, but all in crashes, about 40 in parts. If you want to fly a helicopter, this is a great one to get. Have fun. (Posted on 8/27/14)
$170 disposable Heli! Review by Bobby
Rating
I agree with everyone that thinks this is a great flying heli, even that it is easy to learn on for beginners... there's just one problem. The motors on this heli are COMPLETE JUNK!!! I have gone through multiple NEW X-2 helis and multiple NEW motors!!!! They all fail! Some after only 2 flights. I have personally seen them start glowing, smoking and catch fire at night! Not only are they junk, they are also dangerous!!!!

Waste of money Review by Bill
Rating
I'm on my second X2 heli now... Neither of them has seen more than 30 min of flight time. Both of them has had motors go up in flames while they were on the ground.

Both new X2 helis' motors caught fire on their own and no longer work! A little research has shown me that this an extremely common occurrence! I really wish I had not wasted all that money... Do yourself a favor and stay away from this heli!

The only reliable heli that I got at Hobby People was the CX-200. (Posted on 8/17/14)
brushless motor interference Review by coaxial Axel
Rating
What's this about brushles motors interfering with the tail motor? I too have had two failures. I missed the bent frame so almost had three crashes. Once the frame bends , yes you can re-bend it, but it will allways be weak. Lets force them to carbonize it! Anyway, the motor issue is inexuseable. I mean, no crash damage is covered, so if I dont imediately upgrade to brushless is that pilot error? Sheese!! 'Anyway, disregard the words at the end. I guess it was pilot error...toWhat'What (Posted on 5/29/14)
X-2 WOW Update So far so Good Review by HGhost
Rating
It is now 5/27/2014

X-2 still flies great

So far no issues with motors or anything that some complain about.

These are brushed motors and they do get hot as do most brushed motors do. Allowing them to cool between flights can help longevity.
I purchased extra batteries and fly them all .

Can not say what will occur down the road, but so far so good .

Can not beat this Heli when it comes to the ability of a coaxial to fly outside in the wind. This thing is really fast and really maneuverable .
I started out in ch 2 and 3 with height limiter. Switched to ch 4 which eliminates the Height limiter, I finally just Unhooked it and was in starting out in ch 5, all in one day.

And I am an old guy and no Heli pilot at all. So if I can fly it ANYONE can master it in a short time.
Just wanted to update my previous Review, to let everyone know it is still doing Great . So far so Good (Posted on 5/27/14)
I really want to love this heli but..... Review by Such a Disappointment
Rating
"Edited out personal attacks"

As another reviewer stated the motors are crap!

Forget using the stock brushed motors, they will die within minutes and replacements will die as well. (they even ship dead motors!)

Once you install the brush-less motors (same cost as the heli btw) you will find the tail motor will cause interference with the brush-less motors untill the heli fails, cuts power to the main motors, and falls out of the sky. The tail motors do not last more than 1 or 2 flights.


Like I said.... wanted to love the heli, or even like it. Its a great idea but just too bad its patented to these morons and sourced out of china with no QC.

(worth noting.... Google the reviews of Hobby People retail stores and look at reviews of this heli on RC forums)

Just unhappy Review by bcd
Rating
After months of trying to master this bird I have given up and moved on to another. I have replaced the motors three times and various other parts. At first I thought it was operator error but discovered that the motors were the culprit. Upon failing the motors would make the bird handle erratically and make for excessive stick input. The motors would only last about 6 battery cycles before showing signs they were failing. (Posted on 4/25/14)
X-2....WOW Review by HGhost
Rating
Purchased this a few months back, never had the weather to give it a try. Bought the height limiter and attached it and also lights were added. Gave it it's maiden flight just today....

The height limiter only works on ch 2&3 , allows you to stay low and get use to the Heli, that lasted about 2 minutes. Switched to ch 4 ( height limiter is eliminated ) This Heli handled and flew better,and after one battery used, I moved from my front yard ( limited space and height ability ) to my flying field .

Switched the Tx to the 5th ch.....all I can say is WOW !!!!!
The X-2 rises fast and is a dream to fly and remarkably easy as well. Never flew a Heli like this ( just smaller indoor type and a S33 which does not do well outside)...the X-2 moved through the breezy conditions like nothing and when the winds gusted on occasion, the X-2 did not care, it still flew Great.

I am no pro by no means and if I can fly the X-2 after a few minutes in this manner, Anyone can. I highly recommend this to Everyone...especially someone who has never flown a Heli before.

This Heli is amazing and the feeling is WOW. My only real gripe is the batteries do not last very long ( Must have more batteries)...I have lights on mine and at and near dark it looks amazing. I unhook them when it is light out.
One other issue tho it looks cool , but the canopy is Black, would be nicer if it was a brighter color so it would be easier to orientate. At a little distance that black color is deceiving
I bought an extra one and intend on painting it a bright color perhaps a Yellow or some sort of Neon color?
Irregardless, this X-2 has to be the best Coaxial Heli on the market, and for a beginner the best learning tool one could ever own.

Thanks Hobby People for a Great product and one that can be upgraded one day and at a reasonable Price.

Again the X-2 is simply WOW !!!! (Posted on 4/21/14)
fantastic heli Review by Flyguy
Rating
I have four of these helis. One uses the old X350 5b1 miliiary heli body, one uses a SR Huey body, and two use the stock body. I have brushless motors in the 5b1 and in one stock x2. The x2 with the brushless also has aileron assist and the light kit in it. These helis are flown year round and are the very best coaxial helis I have flown yet and I have 10 helis. They are easy to work on and the parts are very affordable. The one and only complaint I have is that the stock motors do not last very long, just like in the original X350, but the brushless motors seem to last forever and are well worth the money if you fly often like I do. (Posted on 4/5/14)
Fantastic Heli Review by Steve

I held off on buying this heli for a long time because the reviews of the first generation X350 were so bad. Glad I waited - the X2 is the best flying heli I've ever owned. It's both stable and maneuverable. (Posted on 3/18/14)
HPHELI X-2 Review by Alan
Rating
This Helicopter is excellent to fly and is a great unit I love it and here is a tip I found to help save bodies (take some clear box tape and line the inside of the body and then it won't break so easily and the body last longer) I highly recommend this helicopter (Posted on 1/17/14)
great product, Review by Ron
Rating
Received this for Christmas and have been flying everyday since. Really clever features allow you to set X2 up so you can flight it in simple mode, and as you get the hang of flying a helicopter, you can turn up the settings to make increase the performance. Best thing you can do is get a few extra batteries so you can fly for longer time. great product. (Posted on 1/9/14)
Great flight Review by Jrod
Rating
Just got this as a gift to myself !! I have the Traxxas DR-1 and mastered the 4 Ch flight, but wanted to fly fast outside. This thing is great because its unlike most helo's you have flown before. Being able to start in 3 or 4 ch mode first to get the hang of its charactaristics is key. Then after a couple flight hrs throw it in to the 5 ch strong wind setting and this X2 is fast. be careful it will go far and high before you know it. grab an extra batt and an extra shell just in case you have a few spills. Electric tape works great on minor cracks. (Posted on 1/3/14)

The X2 is the real deal. This is not a toy. I can fly indoors and outdoors and it is fast. I was flying within 2 minutes of charge. You must fly this helicopter, and it is addicting. Great product. (Posted on 8/19/13)
