It is, and it's also noted in the front of the manual of most quality brand helicopters.

There are a lot of hobbies that are dangerous to ones health. Like anything else though, if you educate yourself, take the proper precautions, buy quality gear, and maintain that gear (check it before every flight) .... your risk will be minimized and you should be able to enjoy the hobby without fear.

Re: Cheap servos and what can happen.

Those little $4 servos are probably still better quality than some of what I have seen on Blade helis. The ones on the 300X were atrocious.

That's probably because blade uses servos of about the same quality.
