The newest versions have the wires inside the tail boom and a smooth throttle stick...
not one that ratchets. Even the older ones are a blast and with a few mods fly very well.

Apart from the rolling improvements (mentioned above) that were included in later stages of the production runs the only other "versions" are canopy design/colour changes as an exclusive for different outlets - qvc for example sold a blue & red one I think. The QVC versions were based on the later production run and therefore included the upgrades mentioned by humvee.

Blue and purple for QVC, think they are still the most updated version on the market, except the canada AC version thats sold at radioshack.

Actually they're not anymore. There have been new releases of the black w/ flames version that are newer than the QVC version. It's getting hard to tell them apart. The earliest Bladerunners had a ratcheted throttle and are plagued with 30 second to 2 minute run times, and weighed 55 grams. Other than that particular version, all the versions are good
