Blade is breaking into the 500-size helicopter market and doing so in a huge way. The Blade 500X is an all-out, ballistic 3D machine capable of keeping up with and surpassing any other model in its class. The team at Blade has been putting the 500X through its paces for a while now and in anticipation for its launch they wanted to see how it would perform in the hands of some talented pilots. Blade teamed up with Spektrum and the folks at IRCHA to create a new and exciting event. This past August, at the 2012 IRCHA Jamboree, the Blade 500X Invitational event debuted.
