IF they ever had them in stock, which so far has been never. I've been on the email list since I first saw it on their site over a year ago.

I'm no expert, but I believe the one on eBay is one of the original German manufactured Seidels, which has a collector's value. UMS of India is the current manufacturer.

You can now buy one from Horizon in the US under the Evolution name and get actual customer service and warranty coverage.

I had a HV ESC die on me and HK had me return it to the USA warehouse. I had my money back in a week. Horizon is good on their Customer Service but I will not pay triple from them for anything.

It's $100 more than HK, factor in the shipping from Hong Kong and it comes out the same.
