NEW Heli-Max MD-530

Has anyone picked one of these up yet? I have been thinking about getting one of these as just a small flybarless model to play with. Any information and user reviews would be great!!

Helimax is now rebadging Nine Eagles models. NE flybarless models are still a work in progress, from topics in the micro heli forum.

So what you're saying is probably not a good option?

I would wait and see. HeliMax has a reputation for crappy helis, too.

I know of no small scale models other than NE and the Walkera 4F200LM. Darthdrk makes scale fuselages for several micros, like the MCPx. I heard NE was bought by HeliMax and the last review I saw wasn't bad. Maybe HeliMax money has helped improve quality. You may want to give it a try.

I think I'm going to pick one of these up and give it a shot. For only 100.00 locally its not a bad deal even if it turns out to be something that I would only fly inside

Great. Let us know what you think. NE has a scale Huey that's a bit bigger and really nice looking that I was very interested in.

No, that's an old rebadged Walkera coax. I meant the NE Solo Pro 319: http://bbs.5imx.com/bbs/forum.php?mo...ead&tid=617817. I would have thought HeliMax would have released it by now. But, lots of NE products never actually get released.

Balr, the Blackhawk 319 is being released in Europe http://www.robbe.de/solo-pro-319-b-h..._from_store=de along with the Lama 290 and the belt tail 287. So maybe there's still hope for the north american market.

Damn! If it gets here, I'm probably going to have to buy one, despite my better judgement.
