XK K124 Blue with Gyro 250mm (9.8") Rotor Diameter - Ready To Fly (RTF) - WLT-K124R

A leader in mini and micro class RC products since 2011, XK Innovations brings the best of performance and reliability to the smaller side of RC Flight!  The dependable precision of its 6-axis stabilized helicopters rivals the stability of larger and more expensive brands while also delivering class-leading Scale Factor and damage resistance.  Motion RC stocks a full compliment of available spare parts to keep you flying these amazingly affordable RC model helicopters.

The XK K124 is a flybarless 6 channel helicopter which is a great introductory model helicopter with fantastic scale looks for beginners due to its built-in stability system (3D/6G) that supports smooth and stable flights with resistance to crashes.  Here's how the 3D/6G system works:

3D Mode

3D Mode uses the 3-axis gyro stabilization.  In 3D Mode, you can easily perform aerobatic maneuvers such as rolling, inverted flight, hurricane and side flying and much more with the confidence 3-axis stabilization affords you.

6G Mode

6G Mode uses a 6-axis gyro stabilization.  This is the perfect mode for beginners as it provides a very stable platform as you learn and become more confident with the model.

Features:

  • Excellent scale appeal with a sharp blue and white color scheme
  • 3D/6G is a 3-6 Axis Auto Stabilization System that supports stability both while learning and performing advanced aerobatics.  Easily move between the two modes using the switches on the 6 Channel transmitter (refer to the manual)
  • 1106 11000kV brushless motor for reliable power and performance
  • USB 1S battery charger so you can charge from your computer if desired and can charge two 1S batteries at once (second battery not included)

Includes:

  • XK K124 Blue with Gyro 250mm (9.8") Rotor Diameter - RTF
  • FTR Futaba S-FHSS Compatible 6CH 2.4GHz Transmitter
  • 2.4GHz Receiver
  • 3D/6G a 3-6 Axis Auto Stabilization System

Excellent Little Chopper

This helicopter is not only easy to get ready to fly, but if flies well too. Although I have not yet attempted any 3D maneuvers, it is extremely stable to hover and fly around. A great sport helicopter for all to fly!

A great way to start

This little bird is a gem, nicely packaged; install the main blades, charge the battery and fly!!!! Highly recommend this to anyone, young and old alike, it's sweet. Check out all the on-line vides because the "manual" SUCKS, it's written in broken pigeon English thanks to a pitiful translation from the original Chinese.

Cool Little Bird

I am an A&P mechanic that works on the LUH72/EC-145, and I've got to say that the attention to detail on this little guy is pretty impressive! Not exact, but close enough;-! She fly's OK out of the box, however, I did find that some D/R and Expo settings needed to be fiddled with in the TX to settle it into my liking, but that's to be expected with any RTF. I have not tried I/U(idle up) as of yet, as I'm afraid to crash such a sexy bird, and judging by the way it handles in normal mode, I don't suppose it's much of a 3-D machine... But overall, very cool mini backyard scale flyer!!

Superbe modèle et qualités de vol au top

Colis reçu rapidement et en bonne condition, les bonnes nouvelles ont continuées au déballage. Modèle très détaillé qui surprend par ses qualités de vol dès la sortie de boîte, pas besoins de réglages particuliers. Pas encore testé le vol 3D mais ce n'est qu'une question de temps. Je recommande ! Cependant pensez à prendre quelques batteries supplémentaires car on se prend vite au jeu ! ;)

A pretty good heli that probably isn’t best for beginners...

Ok to keep this simple and to the point - The bad - the owner’s manual is virtually worthless for both the heli and the transmitter. You can learn more about it on YouTube than attempting to decipher much of anything with the accompanying literature. Durability is a little above average - which I hesitate to make a negative considering the price. Just know that you cannot beat this one up too much before it starts to come apart in ways that will require part replacements and even some possible soldering. The plastic body itself is pretty thin plastic and it is not easy at all to get it to properly fit on with the battery plugged in inside. You can actually break it easier than you might think just trying to get it put together correctly before it’s very first flight. Very frustrating. The transmitter is nice, BUT the instructions are so non-existent and poorly written that you have to literally experiment with each button and switch to try to figure out what they do. Even then you just can’t figure it out. You’re left with the feeling that it’s either way too much transmitter for the heli or unless you are super familiar with these Futaba transmitters (nice quality) then good luck figuring it all out and expect a time investment to do so, if you can. The good - It’s beautiful. The scale design and coloring make this a real looker. Great details, too. The brushless motor sounds great turning those FOUR blades. The LED light in front is nice and bright and aids with orientation. The battery life lasts longer than I had expected, although I did no 3D flying and this just doesn’t seem like the type of heli I would even want to do that with, but to each their own, It was packaged beautifully, So much so, that you’ll want to actually keep the box it came in for storage it’s that nicely done. Lately, that’s an area where manufacturers are understandably cutting corners to save on costs, but not XK....bravo XK. Overall, I wish my skill level was up to where I could enjoy this little one enough, but in my judgment this is not a good heli for anyone less than a legit intermediate skill level or with stone seriously successful time with a simulator flying similar sized brushless helis. Otherwise, you’ll either be upset that you “wasted” the money or you’ll be upset that you weren’t more honest with yourself about your own capabilities as a heli pilot...my problem being the latter. It’s so unique and cool that you’ll be tempted to get one due to its price and *** appeal. Unless you are confident you won’t destroy it I recommend buying it to look at only until you are ready to pilot this little brushless machine. Don’t let its docile appearance lure you into thinking that it flies that way. It will outperform most brushless helis the same size or close to it. Part of the allure of this one is that it really seems to be in a class all to itself, is it worth it to buy and put on the shelf awhile until you’re competent enough to fly it? Yes, if you can discipline yourself to wait. Is it worth it to buy if you’re an experienced flyer - absolutely - a killer value with a definite unique factor that turns heads and has people wanting to know what it is and where you got it. A good first or second heli? Absolutely not....third MAYBE.... I hope this one sticks around awhile and I hope XK keeps building helis at this level and at such a competitive price point. I don’t think any other manufacturer comes close to touching them in this niche of the heli market. They’re nailing it right now.

Great little machine

Great helicopter, for all pilot levels, great for flying indoors ( while no people around) and out doors it handles the wind pretty good considering the size. Also did a couple metal upgrades.
