Maintain, Upgrade & Hop UpIt's one thing owning an flying the coolest Blade 550 X RC Helicopter in the world, but eventually you will need to replace a part (or parts) due to wear and tear, or worst case scenario, due to a crash of some kind. Let's face it, crashes happen to the best of us, and when helicopters meet Terra Firma unexpectedly, they tend to need quite a few parts. Here at MIBI we have solutions for all eventualities. We will always do our best to get your Blade 550 X RC Helicopter back up and flying as fast as possible.
Stock Blade 550 X RC Helicopter replacement parts can be ordered direct from our Spares Section, and usually all you need is the parts number taken from the Aircraft's product Manual. Many spares are held in stock, however due to the sheer volume of spares required across our whole range, we may at times need to order direct from our Distributors, especially when a particular Spare is in high demand.
Most consumable items used in the construction and running of an Blade 550 X RC Helicopter, like Radio Gear, Batteries, Motors, Blades 120 S, Servo's, ESC's, Glow Plugs and Fuel Tubing can be replaced with generic items. Cowling's, Airframes, Skids and Transmission items tend to be model specific so need like for like replacement.
Stronger, Better, FasterBut there are other options too. Most manufacturers also make Option Parts or Upgrades. These Upgrades offer either a Performance Enhancement, Increased Durability or simply an Enhanced Aesthetic. Most Upgrades are a much higher price than their stock replacement Parts, but in terms of Performance, Looks or Durability, well worth the premium.
Lastly there are Hop Ups. Just like Upgrades they enhance Durability, Looks or Performance of your Blade 550 XRC Helicopter. Hop Ups tend to be made by Third Party Manufacturers, who specialise in producing a wide range of Hop Ups across a specific genre of RC, and multiple brands. Hop Ups may often not look as refined or be branded like manufacturer Upgrades, but they often offer a more Cost Effective and Robust solution to the part, or parts they replace.
