surprisingly they still do.
just checked and they have 17pcs of the 600GT in US warehouse.

the price doesn't really make it a great option these days with the used heli deals out there now.

BTW, what is this HK700GT? never heard of such a beast, unless that is the same as the Assault 700.

just checked again and they have 2 pieces left.
I guess they sold 15 in the last 4 months, I'm a little surprised.

no stock left in US or INT warehouse.

this may be the end of the HK600. Can't imagine they would still be making these old airframes.

If you want a brand new classic 600 ESP Phoenixtech still makes them. they are still popular for scale builds because newer Align helicopters don't work well in fuselages. You can get them in the US here https://www.rchelicopterfun.com/600-esp.html They are not "cheap" helicopters though.

that's a nice source for airframes but unfortunately i don't see any parts support.

it's still relatively easy to keep them flying and they don't eat many parts anyway but some things are hard to find, like the plastic frame pieces, Align H60028. Align and the clone brands both stopped carrying this part.
I would have bought 2 or 3 spares in hindsight.

Edit: ok they may be available, but shipping makes it an expensive item. still nice to have a source though.

Huh??


seriously, people are buying these? looks like something I'd throw together from spare parts.
definitely cleaning out the parts bin here.
not really clear if hub and swash are included.

edit- from seller: not included

It's scale builders keeping it alive and for them price is less important. The 600 Pro frame and battery placement just doesn't lend itself well to installation in a fuselage like a 600E does with it's narrower simpler frame and simple battery tray which is located at the front rather than the bottom inside the frame.
