New MASSIVE list of E-flite hop up MSR parts, anyone seen em yet?

I can now make an MSR cost more then my T-rex SA! Some cool stuff there. Anyone know when this stuff is coming out?? 3 new aluminum swashplates, with the 'SE' version looking to have shortened arms! New flybar with aluminum and CF, aluminum tail booms and main shaft, CF skids, all CNC head assembly... Now they just need some CF blades. I checked the LHS which is very good where I live, and they only had a very few MCX parts with the newest BLADE logo font packaging so far, nothing for the MSR yet...

Have to go 'back to parts' and click hop-ups. Still shows all the glow in the dark stuff at the top so scroll down...

It's still the same Microheli stuff, being sold through Horizon. The frame and tail boom get consistently bad reviews. The skids are goofy. The swashplate is only a true upgrade if it's the version 2 with the shorter arms and/or longer ball stems. The grip, head, and anti-collar are excellent upgrades for durability.

Yea, I (nor my friends I've modded) have ever broken another set of grips again after simply notching the blades. I would go for the SE swash, MAYBE a metal main shaft/updated flybar(the $30 is fine if it outlasts and outperforms 3-4 replacement flybars). About $54 bucks for that trio. Gets too pricey after that, about $200 for everything. I'm building decent 450's for that. I've never felt a need to change the blade holders after a 2-second mod stopped all the problems with them. They have three swashplates, a blue and silver one that look identical to stock, and after flipping photos back/forth a few times, the SE one def looks like the arms are shorter and the ball links longer.

Found all the microheli stuff online. Well that's what I get for giving up on the mod thread months ago, although this will be slightly cheaper and of course cash-and-carry at the LHS. I'm def getting the main shaft, SE swash, anti-collar, and flybar. My current plastic grips have ~250 flights on them and haven't even taken the screws off once so I think I'll pass on the metal one. I actually have three extra sets because they broke so easily before someone came up with notching the blades out.

Not yet. I have no reaosn to try it. It's expensive, and heavy. I already have a ball hub in a (otherwise stock) flybar, and I like the way it flies. (The stock 1.7 gram flybar weighs 1.9 grams with a ball hub.)

I just want a flybar that doesn't wear the center hub out. The cnc one says 2.17g, if most is concentrated at the center, I would think it would be OK
