See it in the air and you'll recognize it immediately as the multi-purpose helicopter that performs a variety of important tasks. See it up close, check out details such as the LED lights, and it's obvious that no other heli this size offers the scale realism of the MD-530. A fixed pitch, flybarless rotor head makes it more agile than coaxial helis, but easier to control than collective pitch models — and more durable, besides. The onboard TAGS (Triple Axis Gyro Stabilization)keeps the MD-530 flying smooth and steady, whether it's outdoors in a light wind or indoors in a living room or garage.

The MD-530 is available factory-assembled and fully equipped, ready for immediate flying and fun.


Full-size MD-530 helicopters have been utilized in a wide range of applications, most notably in combat and special ops. It can provide armed support to both ground and air forces, with the ability to operate effectively in high altitude and hot conditions and a range of 250 nautical miles.


Total heli control — to the 3rd power!

TAGS goes far beyond a single-axis gyro, giving stability to the yaw, roll and pitch axes. That means you can fly your MD-530 with confidence, knowing that external forces will not adversely affect its performance. It's stability taken to the next level. Once you've experienced TAGS, you won't ever want to fly without it!

magnetic hatch

Magnets on the underside of the hatch offer fast, easy access to the battery while leaving the MD-530s scale looks intact.

flybarless head

The flybarless head features a low parts count, which makes it more efficient and more durable than a flybar design. It also offers a wider flight envelope.

digital servos

The MD-530 uses rotary-drive, digital servos for speed and precision, and full case designs for damage and impact-protection.
