Is this a Blade exclusive? I just googled for this and there's no information anywhere, not even on Immersion's site.

That seems like a lot, no? The 250pro weighs that much w/o battery.

Wow, it seems pretty heavy. A few grams less than the Vortex 250

I just now noticed the weight too. I can't understand how it could be nearly the same weight as 250 pro unless the carbon fiber body itself is heavier.

Ok that makes much more sense. Sounds like someone just copied the 250 pro weight by accident.

Yep. I'll reach out to HH and let them know their specs are off.
Good find!

Pre release videos?? Ironic this was just released because I was looking at the 250 recently but was thinking its too big.

Thanks, Raser. Looks cute and well-priced for a Blade BNF product. Shame that the AUW with recommended LiPo isn't sub-250g. Delighted to see HH/Blade start using the XT30 connector instead of obstinately sticking with EC3 (or JST)!
