-big quad.
-130 with a belt and more ponies to carry more juice for it
-i have no use for it but that 120 only fulfills a size niche
-i would almost stand inline like an iPhone junkie for a nano bl
-i hope they don't come out with a bl msrx because i would find it hard not to buy. the msrx is fun.
-i think a full line of scale fuselages for all the copters would be well received, if the marketing and lhs employee training is there.
-classes/training for employees of lhs's. technical, theoretical, and flight
- a 7 hundo monster
-easy, easy, easy cash cow for em...light kits for everything!

let's be honest we don't know what we want till blade shows us. like when the mcpx came out it was great. then the mods came and it wasn't so great. they have a lock on things. they are ahead of the technology curve. pilot numbers are growing and pilot skill levels are nothing short of extraordinary. Blade sure seems to be a "ask and you shall receive" kinda company!
cheers

A new small 4ch co-ax bird in the MCX series, possibly fbl would be awesome.
For some relaxed flying indoors mainly.

Would an osprey come under blade, eflite or parkzone?

Well, whomever it falls to I'd like to see one of those!

Have you seen these? They are exactly what you've requested - very high quality, high-output motors with Japanese bearings. We're using one in the 550X.

Love my nano. IMHO best Blade heli yet but motors, seriously lads...

BL Nano. I'll plug it again. Pay fifty bucks more for it, I would, Go on now, make it so. You say you are ahead of us.

A new style of canopy for all their helis and a belt drive 130x conversion kit for more durability even though they are coming out with metal c and d gears

I'm with you man! I'd love a better motor for the nano, either brushed or PNP brushless.

I have flown my mcx2 to start, msrx, 120sr, and my msr. I have flown a few others that my buds have bought after/before me that I want and will own. In my previous statement I made mention of my msr, and 120sr. The 120sr is fun, but has its downfalls (indoor size). When I am in my house and just tired from the day I REALLY like my msr. I fly my msrx (while liking it), and I feel like that was a bad score on the msr name. Fun heli, but not like the msr. I would love to see a msr upgraded with just a tad stronger motors to carry some metal parts that we all change, and come with the ones we all buy (small list) ! I would smack my momma, and cuss the preacher for just a GOOD fp heli with bar that is responsive, and easy to fly at the same time. JUST PLEASE don't forget us people that just fly for fun, we need/want good tools that will get people to the next level, but we are gunna stay there and buy parts for what we want. The main reason I went with Blade is because I can get parts anywhere, but I dont want 3D. I really think there are people out there like me that want the same. So parts everywhere, why not high performance heli's that are easy to fly everywhere too. Just my two cents

I would really like to see a nano or mCPx size torque tube heli.

That or a torque tube heli between the 130x and 550x.

Maybe a torque tube retro fit kit for the 300 or 450.


A tandem msrx or mCPx would be cool.

Actually... yep... Tandem FBL CP micro. Or as I suggested sometime earlier CP coax.

But get the BL nano out first? lol ; )

Fine, fine, fine

Tandem DBL Nano CP X!

The thing is what batteries would they use? Dual mCPx batteries for 2S power?

Now that could possibly peak my interest.

This...right here... +1000

I can't believe all the new crap they come out with. And the massive stocking of all the spare parts/hop ups to go with those new releases. Focus some of that effort on making new products RIGHT on the first release.

While not as "blingy" as some other manufacturers' kits, the Blade 450X already is a very high performance FBL 450 sized heli. Excellent flying heli that's also proven to be very reliable.

Hope the shafts don't spin inside the bearings and trash the motor like your other E-flite heli motors.

And, unlike the other E-flite motors, are you actually going to sell individual parts for these?

I would order a BL NANO today if it was available.

I'm also a big fan of factory hop-ups as someone up above elaborated on.

I'd love to see a V-22 Osprey type tilt rotor aircraft even though this is in direct conflict with my post above about them releasing tons of new stuff instead of putting some of that effort into refining existing stuff and/or refining new releases BEFORE release.
