Yeah I think he made a calculator error

300 bucks for the BNF is still a pretty good deal, but now that I have the 300X I would never go for the 450 3D over that.

jrjr - you'll need to enter coupon code to get this price. Should be in your email if you shopped with a few online retailors (i.e. amainhobbies, hobbyzone) in the past. If not check their facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/hobbyzone

there are 5 other offers with deep discount along with this.

I bought the 450 BNF from the LHS for $169+tax. Couldn't resist any longer...

My understanding is that Horizon Hobby is discontinuing the Blade 450 3D, so it's at the super discount blow-out price of $169.99. My LHS had one in stock that I picked up for that price and they have another on order for me. One for me and one for my son! Almost a 2 for 1 deal. Sweet!

I haven't read through all this thread by a long shot, but overall, would you guys say this heli has been a reliable piece in box stock form?

I'm not a 3D heli pilot yet, so just basic flying around is all I need it to do.

Is anything on this heli compatible with Trex450 stuff? Main blades, tail blades, etc.?

Trying to decide if it's worth it at it's new price before it's too late....

Don't know is this deal is available in Europe, but with the exchange rate, it would be an even better deal for you! Check with your local Blade dealer.

The only part I'm sure of is the feathering shaft is the same as the Trex 450.

I wonder if there's a new 450 coming then? Price reductions can mean they want to shift old stock before a new model comes out.

Maybe flybared is dying out and they'll only do flybarless.

I would think that the 450X is the replacement

Shame if they drop the flybared range, if only because it's a lot cheaper. I'm not sure if I was starting out again if I'd want to spend the sort of money the 450X retails at.
