On the other hand, I did a quick search of the micro section and the first reference to the blade MCX was in 2008. I assume this
is it? If so, the heli, and parts are still available.
No I love it when people disagree and can back it up. My opinion of Walkera electronics is based on fairly limited experience with them. Every time I've worked on one, I've found something wonky in the servos, receiver, or radio. In all cases except once when the servo was stripped, we were able to fix the issue and get the thing to fly. I have not worked on any recent models though - and it's possible they have improved, I just don't have the information to say one way or another.
The mCX was released October 1, 2008 - that's when it got to the hobby shop anyway. The parts from the current version will mostly work on the old one.
