The Turnigy FBL100 is a feature packed micro 3D helicopter like no other! Its advanced 3-axis flybarless system not only reduces drag on the rotor head, it also greatly increases the precision and agility of flight. This, combined with its ultra light airframe delivers a level of power and responsiveness that is un-matched by any other micro 3D heli on the market today.
This micro heli is truly 3D capable - inverted flight, flips, loops, rolls and funnels, the FBL100 can do it all! Despite its ultra capable flight characteristics, the FBL100 is also quite stable thanks to its precision flybarless control system. This means that it is a great way for new pilots transitioning from a basic coaxial or fixed pitch heli to learn how to fly a 3D heli without the fear of a large investment or costly repairs.
If your looking for exciting 3D heli action indoors or out, or simply looking to get into collective pitch helis without spending a fortune on larger models, the FBL100 is for you! It arrives completely ready to fly including a stylish and ergonomic 2.4gHz radio transmitter, two 3.7V 300mAh lipoly batteries, lipoly charger, spare blades and rotor head linkage rods. Simply charge the included flight batteries and your ready to fly!

I have a Turnigy100 follow what is the biggest battery I. Can use in it the one I got only lasts 4 min and the other on won't charge. If any be has an answer or battery mod or. Number please let me know
I'd like to follow up my Turnigy FBL100 Micro 3D Helicopter that I sent last August 23, 2013. There was trouble for lifting of helicopter. I dont hear anything from you what happened to it no e-mail or chat here in may account from hobbyking. Please do reply to me. I'll highly appreciate your responce. Thank You .
Make sure the angle of the rotor blades are in order. It may happen that the main rotor shaft sliding gear, changing the pitch of the propellers and preventing takeoff. The fix is easy, just press the rotor shaft on the gear to remove all slack from the shaft. This system acts as a protection to avoid breakage, but can cause confusion if we do not realize that the axis has moved into gear. Another solution is Trimar the rotor blades so that when the stick is in a central position there is already an angle to maintain the weight bearing. Look on the internet some videos on how to adjust the FBL100. Good Luck!
The FBL100 features lightweight, and with this little inertia. This makes it more robust to impacts, and more agile in 3D maneuvers. But worth buying spare parts such as rotor blades, servo, canopy. Good flight!
deffinately try your skills on a smaller heli first simply for cost reasons, but a larger heli is more stable and somewhat forgiving in minor discretions in movement where these smaller helis are very touchy..
1 thumbs up!
This little heli is slightly larger than Solo Pro v2.Difference in performance is amazing.Flew straight out of the box with little trim adjustment.The controller doesn't have digital display,which is annoying,no way to adjust pitch/throttle curves,or see how far trim is adjusted.Control takes 4xAA -I bought the new Nickel Zinc 1.6v cells which work a treat. One really annoying thing is that you need to remove canopy to change battery -canopy ends up breaking form all the fiddling around The landing gear broke in the first couple of crashes,the tail boom is especially fragile and broke twice near the base(after first time I trimmed it shorter and re-inserted),ended up replacing the fragile boom with solid CF rod from HK250pro boom mount,with wires running externally and covered with heat shrink -very solid now and has survived numerous crashes. The main Gear slips down,there was no screw or nut holding it in place-had to use CA glue to secure. Flew in moderate wind conditions -this heli handled it very well and stayed controllable All in all,a very good heli -walks all over the Solo Pro V2 and is stronger Out of action now due to broken servo after crash -why doesn't HK stock parts?

This is a very nice little helicopter. While it flies very well, the main advantage to this model is the fact that you can crash it over and over - I very rarely land this model back on the pad. This gives you the confidence to try stuff you normally wouldn't do - I've started inverted and backwards circuits, piroflips (a bit weak with this model, but possible) and grass cutting.
Having a pair of batteries is a nice bonus, as is the crash kit. I would have liked to see some performance blades included, rather than the second set of fast blades. I have yet to use most of the parts, but I've been through a couple sets of landing gear (after about twenty flights) and my canopy is in very rough shape.
Parts are generally interchangeable with the Blade MCPx model, with some differences. I wanted to install the new longer Blade boom, but the tail motor connector was different so I'll have to do some soldering if I want to use this.
Overall, I'm very happy with this model and I'm hoping to transfer some new skillz to my larger models!

The helicopter works acceptably but mine came with the elevator servo potentiometer defective and when you do move oscillates up and down allowing the heli very unstable.
It is intolerable that sell a helicopter invoking an alleged backing of spares that have never had stock.The only parts of this helicopter are as deception, took several months to a pending order paid to replenish stocks, It took several months to a pending order paid to replenish stocks, but they never get it seems that no agreement with any supplier.
El helicoptero funciona aceptablemente pero el mio vino con el potenciometro del servo elevador defectuoso y cuando le haces avanzar oscila arriba y abajo dejando el heli muy inestable.
Es intolerable que vendan un helicoptero amparandose en un supuesto respaldo de recambios de los que nunca han dispuesto de existencias. Los recambios de este helicoptero unicamente figuran como engaño, llevo varios meses con un pedido pagado en espera de que repongan existencias, pero éstas nunca llegan pues parece que no tienen acuerdo con ningún proveedor.

Very fragile, the main gear is not fixed and fall everytime, tail boom is fragile, it has to be cheaper, maximum of $ 80.

Como diz o anuncio ele eh hardcore....
Muito legal. Ele acabou de chegar, por ser micro eh bastante leve e parece muito frágil. Primeiro voo com ajuste de trim somente.
Para os iniciantes com certeza co axial ou Mini beetle somente.
Jah sao necessarios todos os cuidados com seguranca pois as pas podem cortar ou ferir pessoas. Melhor voar em campo aberto e ou com grama para assimilacao da pequena maquina.
Com poucos ajustes como ja dito eh possivel comecar as primeiras manobras.
Abraco a todos.
