Do you think the 300X will release on the listed ETA of April 2012? I want that thing so bad.

if we go off the 450x timeline then December should be about right.

Wasn't the 450x planned for mid-late jan but just released early march? Can't wait to get my hands on this either though... just 1 more month hopefully!

since it shares so many parts with the 450, i hope the release date should stick.

i have been torn the last few days on which one to get, 300 or 450

you have an edge 500 class, go play with a 300 class for a change!

I'm curious to see what people are going to say about how the new BLADE 300X compares to the GAUI X2, but we will have to wait one more month.

Can anyone comment on how the new BLADE 450X compares to TREX450pro 3GX??
:confused:

:confused:

It is a bit unfair to make this comparison, unfair to both machines I think.

My own belief is that the 450X 3D controller is the better of the two, but after that, I am not sure the heli itself, is the equal of the 450Pro.

One think to consider is how the heli is performing after a few months of use. In other words, how tight are things still?

Even with all that being said, I do think Blade has a winner here with the "X" series of helis.

There are a lot of places for all designs and levels. It is a great time to be a RC Heli pilot!:bacon

I had an X2, so i'll let you guys know

things i hated about the X2
-belt slips, unless you buy $60 custom pulleys, and still slips.
-replacement parts were super expensive.
-gaui's black plastic is crappy, all their new white stuff seems to be working.
-entire thing felt very fragile
-I got it early on, i had a crash and waited forever for parts.
-the thinnest main shaft ever, i wonder what the diameter of the 300's is.

main shaft bearings are listed as 4x8x3mm.

Plenty of time to save up for one then! LOL!

Any update on this? I'm not used to waiting and am going to throw a fit soon!

Haha - just kidding, I have to wait for things, but I swear HH is using some technology to make the days last longer than normal :noups

:YeaBaby:

I'm asking lhs every day if there's any update and scanning the blade threads to see if any eflight guys will drop a dime and let us in on some updates.

Oh haha, no I'm talking about them actually adding hours to the day, not just more hours of daylight! :)

Sure would be nice to know. I'm *assuming* HH's engineering and what not is already done and its in the MFG process, but who knows, they could be doing last minute tweaking.

I don't want it until it's solid, but I also don't want to wait. :YeaBaby:

I'd ask my hobby store but they've just about lost all my service considering they almost seem to be closing or something on their helis and planes... Still haven't seen them receive a single 450x yet... That 300x better come out in April though and some insider info would be nice if it could be confirmed it will at least be out before the end of April.:thumbup:

I already paid for it so now it's just a waiting game. I'm hoping they have spare parts available that don't sell out in 5-min either.

They have a 450x in my LHS. Nothing special looking. Frame is quite thin plastic. If I hadn't seen vids of it flying I would think nothing of it. Goes to show you you cant judge a book by it's cover. But still for $500 I pass. I was more tantalized by the FBL 550e t-rex for $800. :wow2:

I just got off the phone with HH Customer Service.... Before the conversation ended I asked, "By the way, when is the 300 X due to be shipped?" April 16 is what he said!
