I suspect it is only the frame that is being produced. If so, you will still have to depend on Blade for other parts.

I've been having a hard time keeping it secret for months now, but since the cat is now apparently out of the bag and tearing around the house, I will only say this:

There are more 130X parts bottlenecks being solved, in addition to the frames.

I see rotary servos in the pics. Nice!

So this is to be a kit that HH will sell?

Refine what you have and expand the ar6335 to helicopters.

Put centering springs on all transmitters for collective channel as this is required for consistent flight.

How about a tunable helicopter, one with a pitch slider on a torque tube tail. An adjustable slipper on the tail rotor drive shaft ( in the tail boom of course ). Light on the slop. Tight on the tolerances. Rigid. How about an rc heli and not a rent to crash design. How about stopping the protocol b.s. and show some quality in the frame and mechanical areas. Your niche is wearing thin.

How about scale helis built on the already successful and reliable 230s platform? Branch out on shit that already works for you, Blade. Get a good scale skin on what's probably your best selling heli ever. And, please don't do the ultra-micro shit based on the 130X like the Red Bull BO-105 or the craptastic Apache.

There's already lots of companies that build larger helis.

Blade's niche is in the micro/nano size.

I see a lot of people complaining about bringing back the 550 and 600x kits. I bought a 550x kit when it first came out and it was great. Sure I can’t get parts for it but it still flys. I recently purchased a new 480 fusion and it kills the 550x I just wish HH would send out the 550 stretch kits already. But as I see it that is the kit they are asking for

Yeah, it still flies until you crash and can't get that oooonnnneeee critical part you need that can't be sourced as stock, aftermarket or even modded from a completely different heli. Then you have a nice, expensive paperweight because of a critical part that's probably very inexpensive, but you can't get it anywhere.
