Ultra Durable Diamond Mini Gyro 3 Channel Indoor Ready to Fly RC Remote Control Heli

Here's a new coaxial helicopter. I believe this mini coaxial helicopter has not been posted here in this forum. Watch the amount of abuse this helicopter endured and yet, it still flies well. It's amazing. It will definitely be my next purchase.

Worlds Most Durable Mini RC Heli (7 min 31 sec)

Oh Cal, don't be a channel snob.

KB, why the lather? Just cuz it's not in stock, and the miscellaneous one I found was? But by all means, "collect 'em all" and tell us what it does. Besides that you can fold the blades into a 'U'. Kinda pricey if that's the main feature.

I wonder if this copter..isn't coming now.

Well, it's STILL not listed in stock...whaaaaa!
http://www.hobby-estore.com/Diamond-...eh-diamond.htm

The video bally-hoo'ing it went up half a year ago!
4376 views.
It sure isn't being promoted much.
Half a year is 182.5 days.
4376/182.5 = ~24 views a day.
It begs the question: what's keeping the views DOWN?

For comparison, one of my own "nobody" videos, in six months: 13,000 views.
This is the FIRST place other than my own site that this video's been linked to. In other words: ZERO promotion.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLUI3Vh7H3w
Keep in mind: the Browning 1919 Machine Gun is hardly a "hot item" like a durable 3-channel helicopter is, right now.
About 142 views a day. Almost six times as much, and I wonder why.


I sent a letter to Hobby-estore on the third of this month, waiting to hear back about current availability Of the "Ultra durable Diamond Mini gyro 3 channel".

I'm wondering if market research didn't kill the thing. "All Metal" is such a buzz-word yet, and yer average human does NOT distinguish Carbon fiber from ordinary plastic.

Not to mention: if it won't break, you won't sell a second one or repair parts to anybody!

I ordered one and payed for it months ago. They emailed me asking if I would like to upgrade? To another crappy copter. I just wanted to see how this one went together so fast. haha. Oh well. They still have my money. Who knows. Lee

Back in April, they said they'd send me one when they came in. I just figured they forgot.

I found it at one of the other sites associated with Ali...in stock at this listing?
I thought this was the same company as Hobby-estore. Googling the phone number, you get them as the first result. The copy is identical.

Results from that link.

I think it's a copter with no market...think if you were a Seller and were buying stock. "All Metal" is BIG right now, plain and simple.
Four zillion cheapo-plastic 2-channels KILLED this thing's chances of success, long ago.

Going to spend another day in airsoft-land: nothing going on here in
Copterland.
