If you want a camera platform, you can't beat it.

Unless you are flying a gasser, you won't get the flight time you can get with multi . . .

As I understand it, the Black is an upgrade of the original 720. Functions should be identical.

So here's the story. My wife and I have to take out stepdaughter back and forth from Kentucky to Indiana every two weeks. It's about a 200 mile trip one way. The father pays no child support and we are still having to take her for visitations.

To make a long story short, we are now broke and have no way to get home tonight. Who can help a fello blender flyer?

Not sure? I just took a 2k hit myself when all my helis came down due to castle related issues. So I am kinda broke myself. Plus both my Sk's are down. So it may be awhile even after they come out before I get my hands on one.

It is supposed to have updated internals - gyros and accelerometers - plus a metal case finally.

Maybe I missed it but did they say that they were going to continue to make the Blue? I assumed the Black would replace it and probably have the same price point.

Depending on money want to build a 700 class this winter so might be getting a Black. Waiting to hear of anyone trying the HK Hitec clone rx's ppm output. Would love to switch back to my A9 for heli flying as I prefer it over my DX8. Though sadly won't buy me as much as I would like as the clone rx doesn't have battery telemetry. But at least I could use a phase sensor and use my A9.
