Fusion 550 from Blade


Built on nearly two decades of Blade helicopter engineering and development experience, and based on the extremely popular Fusion 480 and stretch kit, the Blade Fusion 550 packs a variety of high-quality and high-performance features into a rugged and reliable helicopter that's ready to rip up the skies. The lightweight yet extremely durable carbon fiber and aluminum airframe design features many factory-finished assemblies so it assembles quickly – in less than half the time of typical kits – plus it's easy to maintain and repair. The Optimized Servo Geometry provides precise and responsive control from hovering to sport flying, and from basic to all-out 3D aerobatics. The quiet helical main gear is driven by the included 4320-1180Kv brushless outrunner motor that delivers incredible torque and performance with popular 6S 4000–5000mAh LiPo batteries. A belt-driven tail assembly featuring carbon fiber and aluminum construction ensures locked-in tail performance on every flight.

Although I do my best to complete this library, you may not find the model you are looking for.

In this case, do not hesitate to ask me to add it : You're not bothering me. Please be patient, depending on my workload, I may take a few days to work on your model and gather information.

I'm sometime asked to add a non flying model to this library but unfortunately, it's not the focus of this website
