Default Should i buy?

I am thinking of purchasing a fbl x50 used and am kind of learing about parts availibilty. Are you guys able to still get your parts easily?
I am a Rappy 50 v2 owner and learned how to fly on this machine and love its durability. I really like the look of the x50 and Velocity 50 ( worse parts availibilty from what ive read).
I also own a Compass Odin 90 which is a beast and never caught on. So i wonder now why do i like these scarce and discontinued helis? Lol.
Anyways do you think parts availibilty will still be around for a couple more years?
Thanks!

I expect parts for a while. They just won't always be in stock. They will wait until there is need to reorder, from what I now see.


I would encourage you to acquire an X50. My favorite heli of all time.

rob43 not anymore! tower hobbies no longer sells thunder tiger helicopter parts.

this will be the new place for thunder tiger helicopter parts. i hear this is the company that bought thunder tiger -HRP Distributing, Inc. i heard rumors they should be fully stocked again in a month or so. so right now no one has much thunder tiger parts!

if you don't mind buying from the uk. there is this uk company on ebay selling thunder tiger parts. http://stores.ebay.com/Fast-Lad-Perf...34Q2ec0Q2em322
