Nope sir. it's just been released so I don't have any
IIRC I think they are working on a tail driven belt upgrade for the A7

Good looking heli, nice and simple. I've not seen that cyclic servo layout before. The tail mech is reminiscent of the Mini Titan.

A belt driven tail would allow them to get the price even lower on the A7, as well as just being better.

yes that's a good idea, but they are most likely bundling the crap gyro to get rid of them.

Yes indeed, probably the only way they can clear their shelves of them.

The super sharp pricing on the A7 gives KDS a problem of their own making. $370 for the A5 would under any other circumstances seem like a fantastic deal, but with the A7 available at $390......

Nobody will be buying the A7 just because it's 20 bucks more.

electronics and crash cost are way higher for any 700 heli.

Total build cost will be a fair bit more for the 700, but the difference is not as vast as some might think. Servos, FBL and receiver are all exactly the same. The ESC and batteries are the biggest differences.

The 'crash cost' argument depends on how often you crash, not all heli flyers crash regularly.. But anyway, if the kit cost is similar I'm guessing that the parts that go to make up the kit are similar cost too?


By the way... your opening post said $270 but Banggood says that the normal price is $449.99 and 'promotion price' is $369.99... Do you know of a dealer selling cheaper?

20kg-cm servos are way overkill on a 550, something more like these will do just fine and save you some money:

price from Taobao so imagine how much cheap it is to manufacture helis in China.

it's almost half the price of the GAUI NEX6 /499 euros
