Hmmm, well I put it in cart on the site posted and changed to usd in the cart, and it told me $389 something. I dont do exchange rates enough to know something was fishy with that amount. $161 sounds MUCH better

Elektro RC says he'll have them in the states in a couple of weeks. I have already told him I want one when they arrive.

They should be here next week. Both GotHeliRC.com and ElektroRC.com will have the LA500, but initially only a few kits each week.

As the dollar improves we may see a small price decline.

Here's a test flight video:

Hopefully the $ will continue getting stronger, the price will keep getting better!

Lee and I will hopefully have them this week. More will be on the way after.

They will come with the main rotor motor and ESC, the other electronics are not included.

Just noticed, post # 4000 for me

No one has the kits in the US yet, so no one has a review, but from the video, it sure looks like a great flier!

Price in US$ will be about 150-160 which includes the main rotor ESC and motor.

Kits are arriving today and should be ready to ship Thursday/Friday morning, more on the way after that!

Would people be interested in a pre-order sign-up so Pete and I can better judge the order numbers? I expect the first batch of kits to sell-out in the first day, but everyone who pre-orders would be guaranteed a kit from the second batch.
