And here I was thinking only HK had the good deals! :

I got a pair of these at 50 a few months back and thought that was a good deal. Need to gobble up a few more, thanks for the heads up!

Today was the first I ever have seen them! They must not have been marketed enough or the trend died down. here is a great review

I think they're probably a few years behind in the tech category. Horizon introduced the Vapor how many years ago? Since then the performance of the ultra micro stuff has come a long way. These strike me as being similar to the vapor.

i wanted one really bad back when it first came out, but I believe it was the price at 100+ that made me shy away. And now my micro days are over....so no bite even at $34

These things don't have elevator do they? Someone told me once that these (or a similar product perhaps) used throttle to control altitude. Faster = Up and Slower = Down

Indoor micro season is just getting started here, It's supposed to snow tomorrow This will be my first indoor slowflyer haha for $43 shipped its perfect. I see they can be flown in living rooms too so that will be fun to try xD

I like the ability to switch airframes with the snap of some magnets! Makes it absorb impacts better as well. I wish the battery was the same as the parkzone UM's but maybe they will be lighter that way? yeah they have some awesome technology for the ultra micros but for an indoor or outdoor slowflyer under $50 I think this rocks! I have been looking for something I could fly in the house like the WL801 seagull but these seem way better at around the same price.
