Default How much is X7 Super Combo in your country?

I am really interested in this new bird. I just want to know - because I cannot find any online store to sell it how much it is in the USA, EU or Australia.
I am only interested in super combo - not a kit.
I found it here in Taiwan for 1170 euros or approximately 1550 us dollars. Is that too expensive? Should I try to find it online from another continents? Thanks a lot!
Emil

Why would you consider buying things else where when you can buy directly from where it's made?

I am originally from Taiwan and I can tell you if you go to a local hobby store you can easily get a great deal out of there. My Align Trex700e 3gx v2 costs me a lot lessor than what it would have cost me here in Canada

Thank you Mr. Nitro

I am considering to order the super combo from another country because in Taiwan - helicopter kits are more expensive than in the rest of the world. The parts are much cheaper - yes, even for 30 to 50% cheaper. But helicopters are more expensive. Why? You are Taiwanese, so you should know the answer. You know what Taiwanese like to say - a saved penny is an earned penny. So LHS - don't have a good deals on super combos. If you are not lazy - go to Align's online store and compare prices so you will see what I am talking about.
Have a nice day!!!

The super combo is not available in the US. $1500 seems like a pretty good price for the kit, motor, esc, flybarless controller, and servos. I hope we do get a super combo kit in the US soon at a price close to that.

Here's the thing, Align did mark his membership price in Taiwan for NTD$38,930, which is some what equivalent to USD$1,300. This is when its MSRP is USD$1,600. If you go to any LHS and seriously talk to them with regards to buying this 700E 3GX super combo, a 25% off can easily be reached as long as you get other parts and etc..

In your case, the Gaui X7 Super Combo is not available around the world but only to Taiwan, Hong Kong and China from when it was released to some where close the end of Chinese New Year as some sort of "celebration combo". These company always do this kind of promotion to boost its year end sale figures. Align sell its Trex 700E 3GX V2 with 2 6s5200mah40C and extra set of blades for the same price it is usually offering Yes, $1300).
Thus my conclusion of not worth to buy anything elsewhere if you can buy where it was made. Simply as that and you can go figure.

If you don't mind using our HSR or you can drive up to Taipei, go to http://g.co/maps/bg6c7 or Call 02-2756-9994 and see if the owner can help out, that's where I still go every year, I believe there are some other LHS in Taichung City but I really don't know how good of a deal they could give you. Or just contact Gaui in New Taipei City to see if it's still available.

btw, even for $1,500, It comes with HKIII4035-500, Commander130HV, High Voltage cyclic and rudder servo, and a mini vbar express. I don't think it is a bad deal

Thank you buddy Thanks for your reply! You have helped me a lot!!! First of all, I made up my mind - I am going to buy X7 in Taiwan - because you explained to me all the reasons. And I hope i can get 25% off Second, thank you for the phone number and google maps. I'll try in Taichung first, but for sure I am going to check your friend's store in Taipei. And yes - you are right - It comes with HKIII4035-500, Commander130HV, High Voltage cyclic and rudder servo, and a mini vbar express
You see - all Taiwanese are so nice - that is the reason why I am here Cheers my friend. When you go back to your hometown - we could fly together

Greetings from beautiful Taiwan
Emil

The only reason i didnt buy the kit here in north america is because i saw the super combo deal from Asia, and im going back to malaysia this summer and will pass by hong kong and taiwan for a tour, the mini v-bar and scorpion esc alone is like 600, plus brushless servo and stuffs, you seriously think you can find better deal outside? Let me know if you do lol.

I doubt, haha, and I doubt more if you'll find some now unless you are in Taiwan...

Mini-Vbar xpress is at least $250, Scorpion motor for $250, ESC for another $350ish which you can connect to vbar for governor(performs great, btw). I believe servos are MKS-OEMed-HV series which usually is $100 a pop but I'm not sure on this one.

If you figured to get the super combo then basically, you spent about no more than $250 for the kit which cost everybody else at least $800...I wouldn't hesitate if I see one for sale, as a matter of fact I have two of these combos built and flying now

I just phoned (not me, my wife - because I cannot speak Chinese ) a Hobby shop in Kaoshiung - southern Taiwan. And the owner said that he has got Super Combo X7 in stock. So I think it is not true that GAUI produced only 25 to 50. And the price is around 1550 US Dollars (actually 1547 US dollars = 45700 nt dollars). That's the price here.
And dear Taiwanese friend Mr. Nitro - if you think and you know that the prices in Taiwan are cheaper than in the rest of the world - there are some nicer and more appropriate words to use and explain. You said HA HA. Are you laughing at me??? Sorry I am not that smart like you are. People in this world are different. So not all of us can be that intelligent like you are. So I need to apologize for my stupidity and not being that smart.
I think this is a nice place and a nice forum - the best one in the world - and all the time I got help and support from heli freak members. This is the first time that someone laughed and made fun of me - asking some dumb questions. My question was simple: How much is X7 super combo in your country. I just needed the price. Sorry if I hurt you Mr. Nitro with my question. It was not about you - it was about X7. And enjoy flying your helicopters.
Thank you!!!

Default combo

I Wouldn't be surprised to see a super combo come out of flying hobby for $1500 if you look at their site now you can get the combo with the motor and the ESC for 1099. How much better with the deal be for four servos and a fly bar list controller for $450 not that great of a discount. Especially considering the servos are around $100 ea.

That being said good luck you will love this helicopter with any super combo that they have I'm sure. If you think about it just a year and a half ago I got the same sort of super combo with my x5 for $690 minus the fbl controller and that included a $150 A+ thunder flight pack.

Call dave @ anythingheli.com. He will hook you up. Support some American business while you are at it too. If you purchase your heli from outside of the US/Canada you will not get any support from Empire hobby.
