I just saw this, couldn't believe some of those prices. Good thing i didn't order a 4#6s last week when they were $105 for BNF and i thought it was such a good deal. 4G6 RTF is only $99 as well.

It's been on for a few days now and the prices on the 4#6S and CB100 RTF just went down today to where they're cheaper than the BNF units. For $70 each, you could buy two and have one for parts.

Perfect timing as I was looking to get a 4g6S, but was going to wait for the updated V120D02. Now, with these prices I just might get both.

PayPal balance? I've forgotten what that's like. The last time I had a PayPal balance was when I started this crazy hobby.

Well I just order 4#6s and 4g6s. I got Dk's fbl head already. So I'm just gonna order up v120d02 blade grips and the new swash when its released. Maybe the rx when they release the new upgraded version.

The TX adds a whopping kilo to the package weight. Practically doubles the shipping cost. That, on top of the fact that nobody wants the 2602. Rule of thumb: never buy a CP's TX without subtrim and swash levelling method.

I've got the 2601 tx with the 4g6 so i haven't missed the subtrims or swash leveling methods. I wonder if the expo and throtle curve will work with the 2609/2610 rx with the 2602? (unlike the 2601 --would be a definite step up for me with a parts heli to boot).

I suppose if everyone has the 2801 tx they probably have to pay you to take the 2602...lol

My 4G6 came alive when I use 2801pro with it. It gave me access to different power band and stability that come from certain throttle & pitch curves & especially from near-perfect levelling. You can live without the performance power band, but I think levelling is crucial for good control. I used the TX2601 from my 4G3 and built the 4G6 from parts (since I didn't like metal rotor head). Didn't know what I was missing until I tried the pro with my 4G6.

And yes, comparing to how the 2801pro handles the 4G6, they ought to pay you to take the 2601/2 home.
