Dunno what the bail out is like but I'm probably in, this or the 360...

Why 6S though.... It's like a 300...

I lost all interest in HH when they dropped their big helis.

I'm curious to know what parts interchange with the 300x/300cfx. I have a OWB and a nice lynx tail that I'd like to bring over to this helicopter, if I were to buy one.

After flying 6s 352mm 450 machines, my 300x does feel pretty slow, even with a 450 motor on it. 6s would be pretty sweet.

This looks like a stunner and it may tempt me back into helis. I'm interested in learning more about this "bail out" technology. Is this the first we have heard of it or does it exist on other helis already?

It's been around for a while, and is proven technology.

The Blade 200 SRX comes to mind.

You can still buy parts for the original Blade SR, which was released over 5 years ago.

I have never had a problem finding parts for my fleet of Blade helicopters.

Don't panic there wil be plenty of online parts around to many places from vendors all over the world p.s When the 360CFX first came out HH was out of stock but in Cali there are too many places that had parts from day 1.
