Product: BLH5725 Blade 700 X Pro Series Kit, BLH5725C Blade 700 X Pro Series Combo, BLH5703 Blade Spindle Set (2): 700 X
Defect Issue: This product recall addresses the washers that secure the Main Rotor Grip to the Head. There is a possibility these washers may fail, causing the main blades to separate from the head. The separation of the main blades from the head during flight will cause a product failure, and may result in damage to property and injury.
What To Do: Perform the corrective action below. These washers will be replaced by Horizon Hobby at no charge.
Corrected kits and combos will have two white, circular stickers with Horizon Hobby printed in black resealing the box. Corrected spindle sets will have a marked black dot to the right of the part number on the front of the header card.
We apologize for this inconvenience. Horizon disclaims all liability and warranties for any consumer failing to act upon this product recall.

The Blade® 700 X is the flagship of the Pro Series line. It has been engineered to not only dominate the 700-class, but redefine its standards for performance. The centerpiece of the 700 X design is its unique servo mounting geometry that virtually eliminates any mechanical inefficiency between the cyclic servos and swashplate. The result is flawless cyclic and collective response that feels almost telekinetic.
With its optimized cyclic servo geometry, quick change battery tray, helical main gear and its lightweight low parts count design, the 700 X is surely a helicopter that will turn heads at the field.
