Thanks!
I found the vendor I ordered from in this thread on one of the earlier pages. I think they can sell for pretty much whatever they want. Now whether they deliver is another thing all together...

Sorry guys, but it's delayed again. Expected ship date is mid July. I'm guessing mid August will be reality.

Not a fan of having to loosen the belt to change the main gear but it's not that big of a deal.

Whats the cheapest pre-order price anyone has seen on the 130x or 300x so far?
Everyone wants a deal, including myself.
So, wondering... What price and website???


I found this for the 300X plus $7.00 for FedEx Ground shipping.
$313.89 http://www.ampdraw.com/product/29909...lade-300-X-BNF
Release date states "Early July"

So far AmpDraw seems to be the winner in my experience....

I pre-ordered my 300X & 130X from AmpDraw. Good company, good service. The only down-side is they charge your card immediately for pre-orders. But you can get a refund any time before shipping.

Also, don't go by their release date. I'm pretty sure they base it off of Bladehelis.com release date which WAS late June. I'm sure AmpDraw will update it to Late July now.

Sounds like a really good deal to me.
Just the AR7200BX is $239.99 by itself.
So I would basically be paying $73.90 for the heli.

That was the one thing that kinda annoyed me....having my credit card immediately charged back in Feb. for something that was to be delivered (supposedly) in April . ...and I would echo the thought that none of us will see the 300 X until late in July...
