I'll add my vote for a reissue or upgrade of the 130x. Maybe I'm crazy (ok the wife says I'm definitely crazy) but I liked my 130x!

I would also vote for upgraded 130X with rotary servos and outrunner main (and with/without outrunner tail) too!

I want something like the k110 but with better parts support. I refuse to wait three to six weeks for parts. We need a rival in that price range. Ive never stripped a main gear on a mcpx, but my 110 eats them like candy. Lets take care of that too.

Jack are you in the US? Motion RC is an authorized XK dealer in Illinois or somewhere over there. I get parts in a few days.

At this point id be happy to see some vital parts for past helis become available. I have a whole box of 300x/cfx stuff but its worthless with no belts or shafts available. Same w 450x etc.

No point in purchasing further blade helis for yard flying if its dead after one crash.

Right now, I don't want any new models from Blade or other manufacturers. But I hope that HH would put their house in order. Many parts for their newer helis are often unavailable for months.

It is difficult enough for me in Hong Kong already. There are only 2 model shops that sell Blade products here. Hawk-rc no longer sells parts for newer models. Jet Hobby keeps very few parts and is out of stock all the time. That means I often have to order directly from the US. Now with the Covid-19 pandemic, shipping times are very delayed.

I have been doing some testing....a 190-210 sized heli running at > 5000 RPM kills the virus in the air. Do your part in killing this thing whenever you can!

Longer main blades kill more virus per rotation! Bring back the Blade 550X and 600X. Offer them BNF with AR7210BX. Servos and motor like the Pro Kit. Come on, Horizon Hobby!

I would go for this. I have a 130x and a red bull version of it. Can't get the angle gears for the red bull anywhere!

That said, also something scale. I really love scale helis, or perhaps scale bodies for the 230s V2 or the 330s or other 450 size blade helis.

Me aswell. But i prefer to build them from a Kit myself. Heli Scale Quality offers a lot of them for 230S. But i build some even for 360cfx. Next will be for 550X.

Horizon killing off the Pro Series helis so quickly really pissed me off. And, they did it AFTER we spent our hard earned money taking a huge chance with them and their completely untested kits when their rep on the street wasn't the greatest. I'll never buy another Blade heli or quad specifically because of that.

I don't understand why they did. The Blade 550X pro kit is awesome. My first "bigger" Heli. They told me, don't go for TT driven tail, its problematic. But it isnt't at all. They told me, Blade Helis are crap, but mine is fine. I modified it for a scale build, changed to 600mm Blades, and it still is fine. I don't see a reason why they discontinued 550X/600X. In fact, all tools, CNC programms and molds are there. Why dont make some money selling the kits and the parts?

I liked my 550X, too. But, it's dead and long gone because I couldn't get a few key parts to rebuild it.

So, once again, bring back those awesome Pro Kits Blade 550X / Blade 600X, Horizon Hobby! And bring back the spare parts! Those Helis are fine for sports style flying, 3D style flying and even for scale builds.
You need a hit now, after that terrible fail with 330S and FC6250HX.
