But if my LHS was offering these for 30 bucks, I would probably pick up "one for the road" as well...

Very interesting!

NOTE: These are also being discussed on The Coaxial Forum.
This is unbelievable.
About 32 Euro INCLUDING shipment.
I have ordered one - see, what will happen...

BTW:
Since today, July 1st 2011, transmitters ans receivers and other radio stuff is hold back by German (EU???) customs and will be sent back or destroyed, if there is no CE certification.
Curious, if I will still be able to receive this heli... and if Austrian customs also already execute those regulations.

I think you'll be alright.

Geez, it really is a club now. $30 for an MSR clone, who could resist. The race is on now, who will get theirs first!

A pity, they do not have tail motor mountings in stock - would be very useful for mCP x.

Perhaps MyRCMart will add more parts later as the 9958 becomes popular.

I am curious, if the rx will bind to my Spektrum DX6i tx - dont think so, but this would be a big and very positive surprise.

I seriously doubt it, the NE clone JC002 also has a TX that looks just like the Blade RTF one, but it has no Spektrum compatibility despite the resemblance.

Besides, if it were Spektrum compatible, I am sure it would be listed as feature in the product description, as this would be a major selling point, no doubt.
