Yup, not everyone had luck with that GT9 but thats not to say even if its included free in the 550 kits...you have to use it.

I am believing that like most of the Chaos line up to date, it'll be offered in the FB and FBL version.

The Chaos 550 is for sure the most anticipated new heli to be released from RCA other than their recent 700, so hang tight everyone...it'll be here before you know it.

It's finally almost here!!!

Ok guys, here is a couple teasers to fill your Chaos fix. It's been just alittle over a month ago when I last reported that the 550 is on its way, well...the wait is about to be over. You can find more info. at: http://chaoscrewlounge.proboards.com...soon&thread=48

The canopy shown in the photo will not be the final design. Also shown is their all new FBL head design along with an exclusive new 3 axis gyro.

Looks exactly the same as the Tracx head from Nankin.

Yeah, basically it's the Compass FBL head which Tracx cloned as well. Nonetheless, a very cool looking design. I like the fact that they eliminated the mixing arms, its much cleaner looking for sure.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were all made in the same place.

As in maybe before Xmas? I had intended on buying either a 550 FBL or Fusion 50 FBL at the first of the year.The 550 cause of the cheaper packs and easier size to drag around,or the F50 for the crazy low parts prices.And have been watching and waiting for the Chaos 550,but have pretty much given up on it.
Is there any well-founded speculation as far as what the price might be?

I think its worth the wait but I realize it may become a personal decision as in how long one can wait but in my case, I have plenty of other birds to play with so it isn't so bad. As of the 10th of Nov., it was said to be available anywhere in 3-4 weeks give or take. The latest news on it as far as I know is that the first shippment has arrived with a limited amount available but a few parts was not correct in the kits. That said, these replacement parts are on their way now and once they reach RCA...the kits will be available ASAP. As for a price, someone over at the Chaos lounge has received an email from RCA stating that it will be around in the mid $200s. I am speculating that it'll be in the mid to higher $200s. I do know that a combo kit will be available as well, so there will be lots of options for sure. You can visit the lounge for the most updated info. on it or stay tune on this thread and as soon as new info. is available, I will post it here but remember if you want to be one of the first to purchase one of these kits you'll need to be registered over at the Chaos lounge. Good luck in what ever you decide.

Sorry, took so long to reply...just saw this post.

2 things you can do to ensure you will have one before anyone else....

1. Put yourself on the waiting list with RCA..so yes you can.

2. Even better is to register over at the Chaos Lounge b/c only registered memebers at the lounge will have priority to purchase one before anyone else when its released. Look at it as a pre-sale for the memebers, an email will be sent out to all the memebers when its here.

I spoke to cliff about two weeks ago and even he was a Lil uncertain of the release date. man o man, A 3 month wait was all I could take. I broke down and bought the new align 550 v2. Very cool new fb head they have out. I'll give rcareodyne this, They have some spectacular scale fuselages at a very nice price. Ya just cant beat an md500 for a 600 heli for only $190 and free shipping on that
