The new Heli-Max 1SQ fits in the palm of your hand, but don’t the compact dimensions fool you. Though it’s perfect for piloting in your living room, the model can also be flown outdoors in a light wind. Its tough, molded plastic and composite parts can stand up to hard knocks indoors or out.
What makes the innovative 1SQ unlike any other quadcopter? For starters, its 3-axis gyro system features exclusive Heli-Max TAGS technology. The TAGS unit offers far easier control than any single-axis gyro can provide — stabilizing all three axes (yaw, roll and pitch) to prevent external forces from affecting performance. Combine that with the 1SQ’s four independently controlled rotor blades, and you have a machine so stable that even complete newcomers can fly it with confidence!
Choose from Tx-R (Transmitter-Ready) and ready-to-fly versions. Both include a LiPo flight battery, USB-compatible charger and extra blades.
1SQ RTF Radio is Hobby-Quality
Adding to the advantages for new pilots, the ready-to-fly 1SQ includes a 2.4GHz radio that features selectable beginner and expert modes. You’ll be able to start flying the model with the control sensitivity you’re most comfortable with.
