Haha, thanks

I definitely think it needs a more powerful motor and battery. It isn't as powerful as it should be.

Wow, big day over at HH. The CFX is a 300, as predicted, and they released a new 200 FP and DX6 with DX9 features. Probably other stuff as well. That's just what I noticed quickly.

I believe the normal 300X has been discontinued.

Still tons of them around though...and very cheap.

I wondered how much money they were losing on the sales of the AR7200bx. It seems like some places were able to sell the 300x's so cheap that it was a better deal to sell the 7200 for $150 and the airframe separately. They market is flooded with new takeoff 7200bx's and I dont see too many people buying them for the $239 asking price.

Hey, I just got a new 300X for $233 shipped. Does anyone think this was a good deal?The 300CFX is coming sometime soon (april-may?) but I would rather knock this one around at lower cost until I get my heli wings in shape again. Maybe more used 300x will show up on ebay now and I can scavange a cheap extra airframe and parts. Anyway next week sometime I'll be hovering in my very large living room that has almost no furniture. Should be awesome!

WOW that sr 200x looks like its everything the blade SR should have been. Just preordered one.

Dont know why but I love my SR.. probably because I have TONS of hours with it learning to fly Helis..

Ok back to the 300x thread.

Got mine back to good flying today. tail wag all gone.. not sure what it was I pulled the tail apart cleaned everything balanced the blades tightened the belt.. back to 100% again

I was straining my brain trying to think of a reason NOT to buy the 300x......no reason found! Got taxes done yesterday....all is well.

I got the entire RTF helicopter for the price of an AR7200BX by itself. This same Rx/gyro unit is still being packaged with the blade pro-600x and 700x. How could I pass this up?

The new CFX300 looks great and so does the new DX6.

Nice, I wonder if it's any better. Probably doesn't suffer from flex like the plastic one.
