Slyster, if you know the owner, would you please ask him to post something somewhere to reassure us. There is nothing recent on the web page and the last time I checked the Facebook page they were posting about Goblins. I like my Velocity 90 but if the utter silence carries on much longer I will be dumping it and moving on.

I have emailed with links directly to these posts.. they will not post. I have no idea why. I agree.. even one sentence from Chris Nguyen would be appreciated. But I still say they have a future.

Second that.

Never fancied a Sab Goblin, which IMO looks more like a violin case than a heli.

The Goblin now doubles as a Rorschach test.

Now Amain and Helidirect are showing the old model velocity 90 in stock. The N2s are out of stock. The old kit is listed as the same price as the N2. What is going on?

There was a pretty good interview on rchn with bert, he spoke a bit about his experience with outrage and what happened.

I really want to see this company pull through but I feel all these negative comments on the forums are killing it for them. They need to be more active on here, one thing I love to see is a company that listens to their customers and makes changes accordingly to their product, just like msh is doing with their fbl unit.

That's is, I've had it. I'm not going to replace my stripped main gear on my F50... If they don't make a public statement within the next two weeks, my airframe is going up in the for sale section.

I too, was as loyal as they come. I love the heli, but damn man.

Nice they show a pulse but it doesn't really 'say' anything about what they're doing and when we can expect to see the fruits of this labour.

It's nice to hear a response but its not telling us much, and is really just a rephrased version of their last statement. Outrage, with all due respect, you guys need to give us a little more than that.

Over the past year or so, I enjoyed flying both the Velo50N2, and Fusion 50... Finally, It's come to an end. After months of trying to unload the fleet of Outrage helicopters (3 Velos & 1 Fusion) they are finally all gone.. Had to practically give them away to get out from under them..

Despite what Outrage says on Facebook or even the few field reps here in the forums, Outrage stuck their head in the sand to the voice of it's customers and regretfully lost the trust of most, including myself. It's sad really, but talk is cheap and that's all we've heard and read from Outrage.

Thumbs down

I won't buy parts anymore for my fusion 50.
When my stock ends, I will move the electronics to another brand.
Enough with this carelessness!

I'm going to let IRCHA make the call. If they are a no show there, I am going to assume they are done. I think I might get a nitro Whiplash to go along with my Furion 6.

Default Outrage or NO Outrage that is the question?

Here in the UK (mid summer 2013) I notice a serious depletion of Outrage kits at most of the major outlets.

I currently run the Velocity90 (fully upgraded) which I luv - and I wanted to get the Velo50 - it is however still available at just one outlet but I haven't the confidence to make a purchase as it feels as if I would be basically buying the last of the end of stock - with no prospect of future support?
It would be really nice to know exactly what the situation is - are we witnessing the painfully slow death of Outrage. Such a total waste if thats the case??

Surely rather than just let the business die the Outrage brand name must still have good value on the open market to sell as a going-concern to someone with the expertise and passion to revive it and bring it back to life - wouldn't that be just great?

We live in hope -

Regards Bill
