WASHINGTON - The Consumer Product Safety Commission has called for one brand of radio-controlled helicopter kits and spindle sets to be pulled from store shelves.

The recall involves Blade 700 X Pro Series kit, Pro Series Combo and the replacement spindle set. The main rotor washer can fail, causing the blades to come off the helicopter during use. This poses an injury hazard to the operator and bystanders.

The helicopters were sold nationwide and online in July-August 2013.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled radio-controlled helicopter and contact Horizon Hobby for replacement washers and instruction on installation.
