I have one of the Skya / Bullet 250's - I believe that they are the same thing just different branding

These are happy days for fans of small helis. I'm looking forward to the release of the Skya 280 and 360 series. Anybody heard any thing on that?

I just tried to use the contact form on the Skya site to ask about the 280 and 360 release dates: server error.

Been around on their site for ages, never got finished / sold as far as I know. They do however have their 600 flying which isn't advertised.

All from the same place however. Same deal with a lot of the 500s and 450s, Flasher, EXI, Tarot etc all come from www.skyamodel.com, they even do the Hobbycity helis although these are built to a lower spec. So expect a EXI, Flasher etc 600 size in a few weeks. They started out as a CNC shop and did some work for a European Heli manufacturer, that got them in to the heli game.

I hope they make a reasonably priced higher quality 600 clone for the sport flier.

It can have a belt drive tail, and an aluminum frame. I wince every time I think of crashing my T-600CF. the frames are pricey. I will probably go with a rotorworks if that happens. I think that the 600 machines are going to become more popular as the price of batteries comes down from the stratosphere.
