Question king 2 vs king 3

Hey everyone,

I own a king 2 and love the bird, and dont plain on getting anything else soon but does anyone know what the king 3 has or is upgraded verses the king 2? And I was looking on helidirect, that theres the 2.4ghz and the 72mzh ones but theres no bare bones which is how i bought my king 2 which is kinda a downer if i ever wanted to upgrade it. But, what are the pros and cons of the king 3 verses the king 2.

Thanks for any info!

the major thing would be the brushless system that comes with it.
and they say better head set up plus the tail slider looks beefier also.
me I dont like the look of the plastics looks too ahhhhhhh toyishhhhhhhhhh
in other words they did what we have all been doing since buying the V2.
upgrade the hell out of it.

ya when i saw a picture of it i noticed all the plastic that is on it even tho they upgraded a few things. Which is great and cheap for beginners but ive had times that ive been flying and the plastic has just broken in mid-flight from just wear and tear.

upgrading from a HBK 2 to a V 3. is not much upgrading in my opinion.
I'll be upgrading to something better like a Copter X 450
or better yet a T rex .

Have to agree... DON'T waste ur money on a K3... It is cheaper to buy a discounted K2 and upgrade the smeg outta it and still be cheaper than the K3... AND.. the bonus is that YOU get to choose the parts that will go into it...

But undoubtedly there are those who will say otherwise and buy it probably to be the first kid on the block to have one... But do urself a favor and hold onto ur coinage... or buy another heli.. a 450 sized one this time... lol

happy fly'n
