Very pretty.

Parts look similar to HDX brand helis. Same manufacturer perhaps?

Would love to see the frame....

Scott,


PPLLEEAASSEE promise me your testing this into the ground before releasing it.

After the whole HDX300 fiasco (V1/V2 tailbox, set screws on mainshaft, etc), I have very little trust in the manufacturers of those helis.

Thanks.....

HDX-500 is "Coming Soon" Looks badass.... This hobby and my wallet do not get along so well. Every new heli calls my name and then I see it naked and jump all over it.

Found that tail elsewhere for $96. Not bad, not bad at all.

I am interested in this size too - need something between the T-Rex and eRaptor.
Like the motor location and the big battery compartment. If not wide enough, easy to modify.
Agree that careful test is very important - easy to correct small mistakes at the manufacturer side, but makes life hard at the customer without proper materials and tooling.

I wonder if you can fit M1 cells inside that frame.

Scott, any word on pricing? I'm thinking it would have to be priced competetively with the Quick 8. About the same size and the Quick is already tried and true with no growing pains left.
