If you want a camera platform, you can't beat it.

Eliminates vibrations for proper functioning of SK720,the heli became very calm,what promises to be a good camera platform,what is missing is GPS.

Unless you are flying a gasser, you won't get the flight time you can get with multi . . .

As I understand it, the Black is an upgrade of the original 720. Functions should be identical.

So here's the story. My wife and I have to take out stepdaughter back and forth from Kentucky to Indiana every two weeks. It's about a 200 mile trip one way. The father pays no child support and we are still having to take her for visitations.

To make a long story short, we are now broke and have no way to get home tonight. Who can help a fello blender flyer?

Not sure? I just took a 2k hit myself when all my helis came down due to castle related issues. So I am kinda broke myself. Plus both my Sk's are down. So it may be awhile even after they come out before I get my hands on one.

they can't really ask alot more for the black unless it works leaps and bounds above the blue ???

Maybe they ask the same price and drop the price of the blue. Like apple does with iPhones

It is supposed to have updated internals - gyros and accelerometers - plus a metal case finally.

Maybe I missed it but did they say that they were going to continue to make the Blue? I assumed the Black would replace it and probably have the same price point.

Depending on money want to build a 700 class this winter so might be getting a Black. Waiting to hear of anyone trying the HK Hitec clone rx's ppm output. Would love to switch back to my A9 for heli flying as I prefer it over my DX8. Though sadly won't buy me as much as I would like as the clone rx doesn't have battery telemetry. But at least I could use a phase sensor and use my A9.
