An innovative design and advanced materials result in minimum weight and excellent durability. But just in case spare rotor blades are included and a full line of replacement parts is readily available.
Conventional helicopter main and tail rotor blade designs are typically less stable and more difficult to fly. But the MD 500D CX’s coaxial, counter-rotating blade design offers unsurpassed hands-off stability while eliminating the need for a tail rotor by cancelling out rotational torque and using differential rotor speed for tail control. The end result is an extremely stable and easy to fly heli perfect for the first-time pilot.
