Nice looking machine, Jason. Is this ONLY available through Hobby King? Eurocopter was acquisitioned by Airbus Industries not too long ago. Factory is still located in Marseilles, France, however.

It looks like a three-blade version of the four-blade XK124 which so happens to be an absolutely outstanding model both in looks and performance.

If I had to pick a nit, the non-scale decals on this version look disappointing.

Now, if this is compatible with Futaba like the XK124, this is definitely a good thing. The radio looks the same. I've never tried binding my radio to another model with a Futaba receiver, but it's possible.

Can't really call it new When it's been out for over 3 years.

But HK now carries it so that makes it "news" worthy on RCG!

Maybe HK is selling the other XK helis in the future too? Maybe the spares too? Would be nice!

A friend has had this one for a few years. It's a great flying and great looking model.

Question: I've seen a version without the transmitter. The last thing I want is another transmitter when I already have Spektrum and FrSky. Is this compatible with any standard or common transmitters?

I think Futaba, or with the iRange multiprotocol module for Frsky.

Possibly you will get the K123 or its sister the K124 cheaper on a sale from BG or AE or whatever other chinese seller. I got mine with 2 batteries bnf from Tomtop for $77 shipped on a sale.

THIS! I've seen that helicopter before from Banggood, and wanted to try one out. But, the TX issue has so far kept me from pulling the trigger on one. I know I sound like a crazy person, but I have so much rc clutter to deal with as it is, and TXs just seem to really become an eyesore.

This looks awfully like the WLToys V931:

I've had mine over 4 years ... it's an astounding micro heli which looks superb in the air.

450 size and I'm in for sure!!!! This does look interesting, as I live only 1 mile from the DeKalb Police helicopter port in Decatur, GA. They use the same type heli. (Well..... a real one of course!! LOL!!! )
