It looks pretty cool... but the rotor appears to be the exact design of the one on the PicooZ... though the flybar is different.

Is the release of the Cessna in jeopardy? I heard that Cessna (the company) is challenging them on the copyright...

I did notice it says availability is July, instead of June now. I hope a pending lawsuit is not the reason for the delay. That could take a while.

So any word on how much this thing will cost?
How affordable is the 2.4Ghz technology? I'm not really familiar, but have seen the new spektrum and futaba gear. I was thinking this was maybe why the cost of the cessna was a little high, 'cause of the 2.4Ghz stuff and it seems to be a little more "hobby-grade". This heli struck me more as a toy of sorts IMO. I would hope the Millenium would have a reasonable price point. It does look really cool.

its not so much a livingroom flyer but rather an indoor flyer. at 18 grams itd be tough to fly in the house. unles you had a VERY large house

in the other thread the gentleman said it was a 3ch heli but looks as though he was wrong on that one. oh well, still really cool.

churchrd, if you click the link on the top of the page, it says $49

I can't imagine 2.4ghz costing much more to make. I think the price associated with it is meerly "look at this new technology" cost, in other words they charge because they can. 2.4Ghz cordless phones are only marginally more expensive than standard cordless phones are, much lower than when it was the "hot new thing" in cordless phones.
