The first batch sold out pretty much before the boat ever landed. The second batch ought be here sometime in July. Maybe there'll be some left when it gets here and I'll be able to pick one up. I agree that this will probably be the next "Gotta-Have-It" copter.

Jason Chan (www.jason.net/heli/lex.htm) has expressed some concerns about servo options for this heli. Hard to believe that Hirobo would have gotten this wrong though?
Regards,
Eric.

We need a HF.com discount on this thing. After seeing the support my Hirobo flying friend got at MHA I am ready to buy! Plus that thing flys harder than I will ever push it.
