Default Blade 230s v2 discontinued?

I was looking to purchase one of these as my first RC heli along with a couple of Sims and just found this today:

Anyone else seen or heard of this being the case?
Any info would be most appreciated as I would definitely need a reliable supply of spares while learning!

I did see that and was hopeful that was the case. Even though that was the RTF version, it still struck me as odd. Thanks for the response.

Did you see their new 180 Fusion? A wee bit smaller, but It has a belt tail.

I just got the Fusion 270, I've had nothing but problems with it. I have a lot of older ESKY belted Heli's. same size as the 230. may just build my own 230 version
