They havnt, They have ripped off the xicoy unit, The lucklyfly turbines ARE the hobbyking turbines.

I find it so funny yet sad that the bruce followers believe the crap that he talks. i wonder how many more excuse people will believe....... Give it another 6 months and you may see a video where he actually spins it over!

Ikea seems to be the world wide service point HK is talking about, stocking up on spareparts for the HK turbine.

Only has two moving parts, so $179 sounds about right.

Well he said he was going to review HK's magnetic induction servos 2 years ago and the review is still pending so that should tell you something.
