We're not little kids anymore.... no wait, regarding the hobby, we might be considered just that.
LOL I just want to see the video, no way in hell I am getting the first batch of these, might get the second after someone else gets it and sees if they fixed any issues the V1 had. Then again if people get it and love it and they do not sell out, I might think about getting one if it fills the role I want it to.

Problem is, those HK-thingies are not really "expensive"... (one should not write such statements out)

So you're not really dumping money into a well...

I remember my 15 $ HK-Parkjet flying like a dream, wouldn't ever have thought it fly so well.

I'm not doubting the quality of this product but how can this thing cost more than a scale warbird with lights, electric retracts and plug and fly????
I would still like one though

OK it is sexy for sure. With shipping only 175, hmm waiting for other views on it, but it looks like it could be a keeper if it works properly.

Or bent motor shafts from rough landings, huge lipo in it for a "glider" this might just be a great warmliner. So are they going to carry it in the other warehouses?

Oh no, I couldn't resist...

Although a defty 175.- $ means entering a world of pain when explaining to my otherwise lovely wife the need for -yet- another "of your toys"


Considering that there still remains a Blade MQX on the must-have...

Love it! But the shipped price kills it for me right now I was really hoping to get home around $150.

Nearly $200 Aussie dollars including shipping but one is heading to the shores of West Oz and as it can get windy here I am hoping it can handle the winds
