here's the parts page
http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...ogy-BLH7800#t4

10 Amp ESC
1100KV for $42.49 must be a really good motor to justify this price, otherwise HH is crazy.

Controller is $229 not sure if it includes a built in Rx or if it's upgradable Firmware/Hardware (bluetooth, OSD, etc..) but it doesn't include a baro?
GPS Receiver w/ Altimeter is $89.99 not sure if it includes the GPS antenna because they list it as a separate part for $18.99
Compass Board: $18.99
TOTAL: $356
NAZA M Lite with GPS is $209 or $107 without it
Naza V2 with PMU and GPS is $428\

that aerobatic video looks good though!

It certainly can rock and roll!

Good to see it has strong sport performance too.

It looks a very good all-rounder.

So, are we more two months away from seeing this product in stores?

I wish we would have an official release date and info from the Blades.

The QX looks really great, and the flight vid looks awesome. I wonder if you can plug in an autopilot board to fly way points? Can anyone address this possibility?

Not a six pack

The really big question for me is, can this be flashed with future updates (a la ar700bx) or are we talking buying newer products? For the price point I would hope it can be updated by the end user.

Hoorah! Looks like HH will be gettin more of my hard earned $$. Came so close to getting a DJI Phantom but did not because of the reported "flyaways" so thank goodness I did not. HH has always been good to me in regards to their customer support so this is a definite buy!
