Thank you for your purchase of the Blade® Scout CX™—a great Horizon Hobby RC product designed by experts to
make your experience in RC as simple as possible. The Blade Scout CX comes out of the box completely assembled
and flight tested. Even if you’ve never touched a Radio Control transmitter before, you’re going to find the Scout is so
stable and easy to fly that you’ll feel like a pro after just a few minutes on the sticks. Thanks to 2.4GHz radio
technology, you can fly several Scout helicopters with friends without worrying about radio interference.
Before you get started, though, you must read this manual. As easy as the Blade Scout CX is to fly, it’s still a
sophisticated Radio Controlled flying machine that has some features and pre-flight checks you’ll need to be familiar
with before you fly. The manual also has some handy flying tips you’ll find especially helpful if you’ve never flown

Battery and Charger Warnings and Guidelines
The transmitter included with the Scout CX has been
designed to safely charge the included Li-Po battery.
CAUTION: All instructions and warnings must be
followed exactly. Mishandling of Li-Po batteries
can result in a fire, personal injury, and/or property
damage.
• By handling, charging or using the included Li-Po
battery you assume all risks associated with lithium
batteries.
• If at any time the battery begins to balloon or swell,
discontinue use immediately. If charging or discharging, discontinue and disconnect. Continuing to
use, charge or discharge a battery that is ballooning
or swelling can result in fire.
• Always transport or temporarily store the battery in
a temperature range of 40–120º F. Do not store battery or model in a car or direct sunlight. If stored in
a hot car, the battery can be damaged or even catch
fire.
• NEVER USE A Ni-Cd OR Ni-MH CHARGER. Failure
to charge the battery with a compatible charger
may cause fire resulting in personal injury and/or
property damage.
• Never exceed the recommended charge rate.
• Never discharge Li-Po cells to below 3V under load.
• Never cover warning labels with hook and loop
strips.
• Always store the battery at room temperature in a
dry area for best results.
Charging
1. Power the transmitter off.
2. Insert the Li-Po battery into the charging jack on
the bottom of the transmitter. Do not force the
battery into the slot. The battery end cap only fits
into the slot with the battery label facing up.
a. Charge LED solid = battery charging
b. Charge LED blinking = battery nearing
full charge
c. Charge LED off = battery fully charged.
3. Remove the Li-Po battery from the transmitter
when the battery is fully charged.
CAUTION: Do not store the Li-Po battery in the
charger. Doing so could over-discharge the
Li-Po battery.
Replace transmitter batteries when the transmitter sounds an alarm (multiple beeps) while flying. Also, replace the
batteries if flight battery charging takes longer than 30 minutes AND the charge LED remains solid.
Protecting your Flight Battery
The circuit board in the helicopter includes a protection circuit for your flight battery that ensures a proper
discharge to within a safe limit for the battery. Once you realize that power is dropping off in flight, please land
the helicopter.
The protection is activated when the Red LED on the circuit board starts flashing.
NOTICE: Flying the helicopter frequently with flashing Red LED will reduce the lifetime of your flight battery or
even damage it.

Lower the throttle to off, then power on the
transmitter.
Hold the bottom of the Scout CX as shown to
keep from damaging the circuit board.
3
Insert and connect the Li-Po battery into the
helicopter battery holder. Make sure to align the
red dots on both the battery and the landing gear.
Put the helicopter on a flat, level surface.
The helicopter gyro stabilizes at this time. Do not
allow the helicopter to move until the red LED on
the helicopter is solid.
CAUTION: The battery included with your Scout CX is keyed to only be inserted with the top of the battery
facing up. Do not force it in with the opposite side facing up.

Flight Control
For smooth control of the Scout CX, always make small control movements. All directions are described as if you were
sitting in the helicopter. For example -- when the helicopter nose is pointing toward you, left rudder (turn) will move the
nose of the helicopter in the left direction (your right).
•Flying up and down: When your Scout CX is stable in the air, gently push/pull the throttle stick up/down to make it fly
climb/descend.
•Turning left and right: When you are comfortable contolling the flying height of your Scout CX, try turning left/right by
moving the rudder (steering stick) in the direction you want the helicopter to turn.
•Flying forward and backward: Gently move the elevator (steering stick) up and down to move the helicopter forward
and backward.

Lifting Off for the First Flight:
1. Pull the throttle stick down to the bottom of its travel and then turn ON the transmitter.
2. Place the Scout CX on the ground with the tail pointing toward you.
3. Gently move the throttle stick to 1/3 throttle. The rotor blades will spin and the Scout CX will climb. Climb to 1.0–1.5
meters (3–5 feet) high. Reduce and add throttle as needed to hover and descend.
Use smooth control stick movement when you are flying the helicopter. Always use small control stick movements and
keep your fingers on the control sticks. If you notice that the Scout CX wants to wander/turn to the left or right, some
steering adjustments may be necessary.
Making Flight Adjustments
Left or Right
The steering trim makes small adjustments to the helicopter’s direction. If the nose (front) turns right, press the left trim
button until the rotation stops and the nose stays in place. A long tone will be heard when the trim is at center.
If the heli turns left, then trim right.
If the heli turns right, then trim left.
Forward or Backward
If the helicopter moves forward, press the elevator trim in the opposite direction the Scout CX is moving. A long tone will
be heard when the trim is at center.
If the heli moves back, then trim forward.
If the heli moves forward, then trim back.
Flying in Circles
Move the right control stick toward the corners to fly in circles. The helicopter will move faster as the control stick
reaches the corner.

How to be a Successful Pilot
• Read the instruction manual carefully (especially the Troubleshooting section if you’re having problems).
• Small, smooth control inputs are best. Quickly moving the stick just produces instability and no real flight
control.
• Make sure the flight battery is fully charged before each flight. It’s better to run the flight battery down to
50% or lower before recharging. A good, fully charged battery should be good for approximately 6
minutes of flight time. If your flight time falls below 4 minutes, your battery may need replaced.
• Keep the unit dry and clean. Carpet lint, pet hair, dirt, etc, can restrict the motor and controls, giving reduced
power and control response times.
• Failure to Bind—Hold the Transmitter a few feet away from the helicopter while binding. Binding while too
close can sometimes cause problems.
• Make sure that the tail boom is pushed fully into the frame. A loose tail will cause the helicopter to shake.
• Make sure the canopy is connected to all four mounting posts. A loose canopy will cause the helicopter to
shake.
• The heli must be sitting perfectly still to initialize when you plug in the battery. If you are holding it in your
hand or, moving it around, it may not initialize properly. There should be no reason to unplug it and start
again. Just put it down on the landing skids and it will initialize in a few seconds.
• Make sure that the stabilizer/flybar is free to move up and down. This is what stabilizes the top rotor
system. If the stabilizer/flybar is restricted, your Scout CX heli will not fly correctly.

Transmitter and Receiver Binding
The Scout CX uses 2.4GHz radio frequency band and requires a “binding” procedure. Binding teaches the receiver the
specific code of the transmitter, so it will only communicate to this transmitter. There should be no need to bind the
transmitter and receiver prior to use. If you ever need to re-bind the transmitter and receiver, please follow the steps
below.

Binding Procedure:
1. Disconnect the flight battery from the helicopter.
2. Power off the transmitter.
3. Connect the flight battery in the helicopter. The onboard control unit
LED flashes after 5 seconds.
4. Lower the throttle stick to its lowest position. Then, press in and hold
the right stick while powering on the transmitter.
5. Release the right stick after 2–3 seconds. The helicopter is bound
when both heli and transmitter LEDs are solid.
6. Disconnect the flight battery and power the transmitter off.
