As far as I know they are still in production. MRC the U.S. distributor has them in stock. http://www.modelrectifier.com/products/rcHelicopters/product.asp?ID=1151&Subcategory=Shuttles%20.30~.50

Sorry for my lateness! :oops: I was out flying all weekend! :D

As far as I know, the Shuttle Plus is still available. It is a great heli for the price, but for another $75 you can get an EVO 30. So if it's not dead yet, it might be soon. Besides, the EVO is a fully modern design and flies a lot better. I'm not trying to talk you out of the Shuttle - in fact I will probably always have one. But I honestly think the EVO is a better value.

On cyberheli its 50 dollar, I want it without engine.... Now I'm doubting, but since the sceadu is newer it might become a sceadu :D

Did I mention that it was in the 70's all weekend and sunny with a slight breeze? :glasses2: But if it makes you feel any better, it rained all last weekend! :mrgreen:

Well, look at it this way. The Sceadu uses all ball bearings and has ball link connectors for all the controls. The Shuttle uses mostly bushings and has Z-bends on the controls. It would cost more than $50 to get the bearing upgrade and switch to ball links (I wouldn't use the Z-bends). so that alone would make the Sceadu a better value. Not to mention the fact that it is simply a better design and can be upgraded to 50 if you want more power.

More food for thought...
