Multirotors, Planes, LOS, FPV
I know this is going to sound petty but it would be nice if they offered other colors other than green?

It would make it easier for spectators to identify different racers plus I'm just not a fan of green. How about some orange, blue, yellow, etc...

I was referring to the Blade version.
I did notice the immersionRC version was red. Very nice.

Pretty sure once it is released ImmersionRC will have the different color plastic kits like they do for the Vortex 285

See the kits for the Vortex 285

Horizon page specs show 3m flight times, does that sound right?

Wonder if it is constructed the same as the 285 on the inside?

My finger slipped on the buy now button, woops. I had the original vortex but sold it as I kept on braking it, hope this one is better. Also just got two alien frames there will be a battle of power soon..

looking forward to hearing user reviews of the Pro, it is tempting and almost clicked the buy button a few times.

Wow, that's a great deal!! But the small print on the coupon code states it does not apply to pre-order items. Has anyone had issues with HH on this before?

If the code applies when you add it to your cart items it should work. I put it in my card then added the promo code and it applied it. I used 2 promo codes recently for Fatshark HDv2's that worked and it was a preorder.

can't decide between IRC or Blade version. Maybe it will come down to best support.

I took a look at the terms of the coupon code:

Quote:
15% off orders $50+!
15% off offer expires November 29, 2015, at 11:59 PM CDT. Total purchase must meet or exceed $50 prior to taxes, shipping, and oversize fees. Code usage is limited to a one-time order only. Available on in-stock orders only. Offer not valid on pre-orders.
Source: http://www.horizonhobby.com/Discount...Promo-10068001

Let's see if HH cancels these orders or delays filling them the way they have with those who stacked coupons with the Dominator HD V2s.

I have used coupons that had that exact same statement on it on pre-order items and it worked out fine. Just keep it hush and not make a huge deal about it. In fact my vortex was pre-ordered with a coupon that also said the same thing and it shipped with the discount.

As for the Dom V2 i don't think they delayed them for just those that stacked coupons. I know for a fact Horizon fills hobby shop orders first, then they fill online orders. Those that got delayed had an order far enough down the line they had to wait till batch two
