The E-Flite Blade mCX is a tiny, ultra-lightweight (one ounce) 4-channel helicopter designed for precision indoor flying.

The mCX is a coaxial contrarotating helicopter, similar to the E-Flite Blade CX or E-Sky Lama v3 but much smaller. (For comparison, a Lama or Blade CX weighs almost eight ounces; the mCX weighs only an ounce.) Like all coaxial helicopters, it is inherently stable, so it is very easy to fly; release the cyclic pitch stick and it will return to a hover.

The mCX is a hobby aircraft, not a toy, so spare parts are readily available and inexpensive. (E-Flite even sells glow-in-the-dark replacements for most of the mCX's plastic parts, so it can be flown in the dark.) It has a 2.4GHz Spektrum DSM2 receiver, and can be flown using any Spektrum transmitter.

Here and here are short flight videos of the Blade mCX in action.
