****EDIT**** Never mind upon further inspection of the little red writting at the bottom of the page I see that it is actually Out Of Stock says item will be in stock on Friday 20 January, 2012.

Well I finally get to contribute something here... I don't know of this sites reputation nor of shipping speeds but I have found a site selling the X350 for $199.00 and it is only $20 to ship to California. Apparently they are Asia based but stock them in the U.S. For anyone interested here's the link...

NICE FIND!!!! I think that should nudge off the fence all who are contemplating to buy one.




Just love that promotional video of the X350 5A1, it's ripping around outside with all the flags in the background flapping away. but the best part of the video is when they deliberately stuff the X350 3 times into the hard pack and then just picked it up and continued flying.

Yeah after the first hit I was expecting it to be out of commission... Hopefully a few more vids of it will be up as well as some reviews. I can't wait to get one when they come back in stock.

Also edited post it jumped to $60 shipping because I had added it to the cart 3 times lol

Hey, I checked out parkrcmodels.com and not only do they have the X350 but they sell the complete brushless setup for only $99.95. I believe Hobby People sells the brushless for $130

I'm going with parkrcmodels.com

Yeah, reasonable cost for the brushless motors and 2 brushless speed controls all for $100 shipped "in the US", pretty good! I think I'll wait until I wear out my stock brushed 180 motors, and then will get the brushless kit.

Try to maiden it on a fairly windless day to get your controls trimmed out properly without having to battle the wind at the same time. Also, do this with the tail control shut off.

I just did some indoor short test flights and I really like the response. Today is the perfect day here in AZ to get out for the first outdoor flight sans tail control. Thanks DT

I just came back from a very short outdoor flight. After a soft landing the heli did not lift off with full throttle. I took off the canopy and the red light inside was flashing which means recharge the battery. I did a full first charge before flying the red light was steady on the three green lights were flickering and not flashing so I thought was fully charged after 45 mins charge. After the short outdoor flight returning back home I took off the canopy and tried to charge again the battery. Upon pluging in the red light steady on but the green lights flickering again. Do I have to wait until the flickering goes away and flickering is normal? Is the battery fully charged and i am doing something wrong? Your input is appreciated.
