Blade 230S – Game On
If you are ready to proceed to the next level of RC helicopters, here is your opportunity. The Blade 230S will help you move up to a collective pitch model with ease. It comes with in-built SAFE Technology, which makes the 230S as stable as the coaxial helicopters you may have flown previously.
There are three flight modes available, allowing you to develop your skills over time. This includes Stability Mode, whereby the flight envelope is limited, with self-levelling and a bank angle limit. Agility Mode gives you complete control authority for sport aerobatics without any bank angle limits. Finally, 3D mode increases the flip and roll rate, allowing for stellar 3D aerobatics.
This helicopter can be smooth for the starter and aggressive for the experienced!
Because the 230S is a collective pitch model, you will be able to perform stable hovers, fast forward flight and aerobatic manoeuvres when desired, including aerobatic flight. The collective pitch comes with flybarless mechanics, giving you sharp control response and positive authority. The rotor mechanics have been engineered to provide the ideal level of manoeuvrability for learning aerobatics and inverted flight. Furthermore, there is always a Panic Recovery mode available with SAFE Technology if things do not go according to plan. At the flick of a switch, the helicopter will automatically return to a level attitude.
The 230S is equipped with brushless main and tail motors to give you plenty of power and solid durability in the air. Working together, these high-speed motors give you an efficient drive system that makes the helicopter lightweight and gives it a fast response rate. These motors are powered by a 3S 800mAh battery, which gives you flight times up to six minutes. Additionally, Blade has included the same 9g metal gear servos that are used for cyclic control in high-performance helicopters such as the 360 CFX.
The 230S comes ready-to-fly with a brand new Spektrum DXE transmitter included. This six-channel radio uses DSMX 2.4GHz technology to give you precise control. A great feature with the DXE is that it can be connected to your computer so you can experiment with radio settings such as dual rates and exponential parameters.
The 230S is your chance to fly an RC helicopter at a whole new level. Order yours now.
What you Need

We only ship within Australia. Getting your goods to you safely and swiftly is of utmost importance to us. That is why we use a number of different carriers to ensure we can get your order to you regardless of your address or the size of your order. To ensure secure delivery of orders to the correct recipients our carriers all require someone to sign for the consignments at the final destination.
Delivery Costs and Times
Delivery charges and the time the order takes to reach you obviously depends on your location, how much you have purchased, and, what freight method you have selected. As a general rule we aim for a 24-hour turnaround from the moment your order has been received to the order being shipped from our Store.
Aussie Hobbies reserves the right to upgrade the freight method to a courier service at no extra cost to the recipient if the selected method of freight is inappropriate. Aussie Hobbies reserves the right to cancel an order if it deems the freight method is not appropriate to ensure the parcel arrives in an acceptable condition. Please note that items greater than 5 cubic kg's CANNOT be shipped to PO Boxes. We must have a street address for any order totalling over the 5 cubic kg mark, or, any order greater than 1050mm in length. As our carriers require a signature at the point of delivery it is a requirement that you provide Aussie Hobbies with a delivery address where someone will be present to sign for the consignment during business hours (9am - 5pm Monday to Friday). Work addresses are often given by customers to make this process easier.

Couriers: We use a combination of carriers to ensure flexibility with delivery options. These services are insured and have online track and trace systems. On the customer's request we can instruct our carriers with an 'Authority to Leave' which does not require a signature to be taken. If this option is chosen the insurance is invalidated, and, if any consignments are 'lost' after our carriers have recorded the parcels as 'successfully delivered' they are not covered by Aussie Hobbies. ensuing search results should show you the current status of your order, and, it's physical location.
If your order is severely overdue, please contact our Customer Service Team on (07)3255 6626 between 9.30am and 5pm (Monday to Friday).

If you have already accepted a package and then discover that it has been damaged, call us immediately. If possible, please take photos of the damaged packages. If we are to put a claim into our freight company a photo provides fairly conclusive proof of where the fault lies. Be sure to save all paperwork and packing material with the damaged goods as the carrier may wish to inspect the consignment before processing the claim. Please do not return 'damaged in transit' merchandise yourself. Please contact us and we will make arrangements for the collection of the damaged goods, and, organise replacement product to be shipped to you. Returning the goods, yourself could also jeopardize your claim and keep you from receiving credit for the return.
If you receive defective merchandise, please call Aussie Hobbies for return instructions. In most cases we will accept returns and make adjustments, however, some manufacturers prefer handling defects directly. Defects found after the product is in use usually fall under manufacturer warranty. A customer service representative will be happy to help you determine which procedure is appropriate for you.
If you feel a box has been lost in transit, please call Aussie Hobbies with the order or invoice number and a list of the missing items. A track and trace search will be undertaken and enquiries will be made with the relevant freight company to try and locate the missing box. A claim number will be issued if the carrier does not show delivery within 10 days of the scheduled delivery date. Credit will be issued for the missing merchandise when we obtain the claim number from the carrier.

Missing or Damaged Shipments
Please ensure that all boxes in your order are present, and, in a reasonable condition prior to signing for delivery. On occasion carriers may deliver orders over two different deliveries dependent on the size of the order. Please note that ground and air shipments can be assigned to separate trucks and may arrive at different times of the day. Please do not sign for boxes with exterior damage. This will immediately invalidate any insurance for 'Damaged Goods' and immediately becomes the customer's property in its signed condition. If the box has been delivered without the driver obtaining your signature, contact the carrier before opening the package. The carrier will need to inspect the box and verify any damage before a refund or replacement can occur.
