Separate fans that were available this fall (from HK) have all been of the 51g variety.
Fans I have bought from X-flight recently are also 51g type and even the shrouds have a noticeable stiffer feel to them.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...
So Stripes...if I order from x-flight I can expect to receive the new version?
