on edit, the above is retracted. and I'll just replace it with:


Had it be available in the April timeframe as originally intended, then it would have been more like:

Then I apologize for that. I was at that spot for many hours and am confident that everyone else got the correct answer of mid or late June.

If it is July then thats a huge delay - 3 months! I can't see it being a quality or design issue - except for the AR7200BX it isnt hugely different from a few other helis out there.

Hopefully they are making sure they have a significant stockpile of spare parts

I wonder if 'said' individual was quoting a possible "In Stock" status for Retail.

Either way, I plan to purchase the 130 X and 300 X, when they become available; actually, as soon as they become available for purchase. I personally just want to be sure that there is a decent stock of spares and available hop-ups at all the online retailers before I drop the green.

I have my Blade 450s and mCPX to keep me occupied with flying and 3D practice.

Thank You and the Blade Team for all you guys do!

I don't think sale will get hurt by delay just there reputation with the poeple who are waiting now. I'm not gonna give up on heli because there's nothing like this with beastx on market for this price. I'll be mad and bash there poor marketing skills. Very poor since they can't project a realease date.. Come on blade clean your act up.. Although this can be said for 90 or 95% of the hobby world that missed it's launch date.. Since I"m only a small business owner I don't have a clue about launch dates. Maybe it's better to lie about release dates to stall sales on other companys????

There has to be another reason why you wouldn't buy it - come on whats the real reason?
For me local support is really nice, my three LHS all support Blade heli's so grabbing bits on the way home works at no extra cost, every online parts store charges for postage. that said I do buy a fair bit of gear online but extra cost for postage is always a factor.
