yep the price seems too nice as it is stated RTF ...
Very nice and rare (in this size) fuse, seems well made, but I don't like the rotor head design, seems cheap

Woah, I want one of these.
But how does a 3-bladed design affect flight characteristics and aerobatics?

I'm not a specialist, but based upon what I've read, characteristics can be the same as a 2 blades with the adequate pitch and th curves. The most complicated seems to be the blade tracking and 0 pitch at mid stick ...

So is it true that a 3-bladed CP would produce more lift, but be slightly less efficient (battery-wise)?

Also, I really wanna know how it affects 3D performance...
