No rip off involved. Horizon and Yuneec have a business partnership: http://web.yuneec.com/news/10/Horizo...e-Q500-Typhoon

Okay, that's a bit better, but it's still not their design even though the brazenly slapped a "BLADE" logo over everything.

There was ZERO stench in the air of the Pro Series line going away back then. I remember specifically because, if there were, I'd never have purchased my first one at the end of Sep 2013. If anything, it seemed like the Pro Series was runnin' like an unstoppable freight train since it was like OMFG!!! Blade just released a 700 (when nobody thought they ever would)!!! Heck, I remember people talking about them maybe releasing nitro models because it actually seemed somewhat possible based on their momentum. But, now look where we are...


Prior to the buy out prior to the changing of the team making what... from Quads to Helis has changed since then as well.
