i read through a post on the 130x forum recently it appears an unofficial V2 has been released as there are changes on the new stock of 130x's coming through. cant remember the specifics mentioned though.
to be honest i got one of the first batches of 130x's (to my lhs in AUS anyway) and havent had any problems with it, in fact i love it

Fiberglass canopies on anything larger than a 200 size. Out of the 8 blade helicopters i've had, almost all the canopy post holes developed cracks in a short period of time. The worst are the SR and the 300x.

i think i did mention this already, but i know the canopy on my 450x is a bit annoying. i dont think i have any cracks yet, but the @%&^& grommets keep coming out of the canopy hole when i put a new battery in, so i have to take the canopy off again, re-seat the grommet, then try again
i think they need to either improve this setup or create a new canopy mounting setup

other then that i so far have no complaints for the 450x, and thats probably been picky

Hotglue/epoxy them on. Best done around the grommets and from inside (hides the glue). Works a treat.

They already claim this is not coming but it doesn't hurt to suggest!
I would definitely pre order if they did release something with these specs!

I don't think they said anything about a 150 not coming, they just said the 130 was staying in the line for a long time. I would guess something between 130 and 300 is in the works. Mainly because anything I could possibly want they create. And I guess I can't get enough of sub 450 size helis.

Taking all into consideration, a 150x would be perfect. Everyone loved that the 130 flew much bigger than the mCPX while still maintaining crash durability. Now, how can they improve on that? Simple. People complain about the 130's linear servos, tail, and they want more power. Ok, So give us a 3s 150x with rotary servos, and a beefed up TT tail.
It seems like the 200/250 class is too big to have any crash durability so I'm guessing that's out. Plus, they already have that market covered with the 300x.

I'd like to see some more kits too, as an Intro to kit builds at a decent price.

Better and more detailed owners manuals for the BNF models. Like the one that will come with the 550X. And on anything 300X and up, please don't include a charger. Spare parts would be much nicer. Thanks

Yes id like a price drop and HH can keep their chargers. Ive got a pile of them, and ive already thrown away like 3 of them because they stopped working after 2-5 uses. Keep that crappy junk and throw In sets of spare blades or landing gear

Or just more of those "how to" videos for maintenance , crash repair etc.
And the more detailed the better- I am still trying to figure out how to use my logger pitch gauge.

I don't care what they put out next anymore, I'm off the Blade bandwagon...I should probably just leave it at that.

such a relieving feeling. I learned with Blade and don't feel like they owe me anything but I've since moved on. It's funny to watch the Blade drama unfold though.

Ah yes, the dubious vote of confidence. Kind of like a team owner saying they are not firing the head coach on the night of the last game when the team is 2-14. Everyone but the most naive know that it is a lie. The same holds true for Blade. They follow the same pattern-- big price drop, assurances that the product in question will be around for a "long time" and then a short time later that product is indeed discontinued. IF the rumors of the 180X hold true, that solidifies the growing suspicion that the 130X is done.

Speaking of done, I think I have bought my last Blade heli. They produce good, innovative products, but I can no longer support a company that has such blatant contempt and disrespect for their customers.
