Hmmm, well I put it in cart on the site posted and changed to usd in the cart, and it told me $389 something. I dont do exchange rates enough to know something was fishy with that amount. $161 sounds MUCH better

Elektro RC says he'll have them in the states in a couple of weeks. I have already told him I want one when they arrive.

They should be here next week. Both GotHeliRC.com and ElektroRC.com will have the LA500, but initially only a few kits each week.

As the dollar improves we may see a small price decline.

Here's a test flight video:

Hopefully the $ will continue getting stronger, the price will keep getting better!

Lee and I will hopefully have them this week. More will be on the way after.

They will come with the main rotor motor and ESC, the other electronics are not included.

-P

Just noticed, post # 4000 for me

Anyone know?

No one has the kits in the US yet, so no one has a review, but from the video, it sure looks like a great flier!

Price in US$ will be about 150-160 which includes the main rotor ESC and motor.

Kits are arriving today and should be ready to ship Thursday/Friday morning, more on the way after that!

Would people be interested in a pre-order sign-up so Pete and I can better judge the order numbers? I expect the first batch of kits to sell-out in the first day, but everyone who pre-orders would be guaranteed a kit from the second batch.
