here's the parts page
http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...ogy-BLH7800#t4

10 Amp ESC
1100KV for $42.49 must be a really good motor to justify this price, otherwise HH is crazy.

Controller is $229 not sure if it includes a built in Rx or if it's upgradable Firmware/Hardware (bluetooth, OSD, etc..) but it doesn't include a baro?
GPS Receiver w/ Altimeter is $89.99 not sure if it includes the GPS antenna because they list it as a separate part for $18.99
Compass Board: $18.99
TOTAL: $356
NAZA M Lite with GPS is $209 or $107 without it
Naza V2 with PMU and GPS is $428\

that aerobatic video looks good though!

It certainly can rock and roll!

Good to see it has strong sport performance too.

It looks a very good all-rounder.

So, are we more two months away from seeing this product in stores?

I wish we would have an official release date and info from the Blades.

The QX looks really great, and the flight vid looks awesome. I wonder if you can plug in an autopilot board to fly way points? Can anyone address this possibility?

The really big question for me is, can this be flashed with future updates (a la ar700bx) or are we talking buying newer products? For the price point I would hope it can be updated by the end user.

Hoorah! Looks like HH will be gettin more of my hard earned $$. Came so close to getting a DJI Phantom but did not because of the reported "flyaways" so thank goodness I did not. HH has always been good to me in regards to their customer support so this is a definite buy!
