I like 130X because of its light disc loading (lightweight nature) and how floaty it felt in the air.

Hopefully, if HH decides to re-release it, they fix the following downsides:
1) fragile TT tail mechanics -> belt;
2) linear servos (which required frequent cleaning) with 1 servo being enclosed inside the frame -> rotary please;
3) inrunner main motor which ran very hot -> outrunner;
4) expensive 3-in-1 unit ESC portion of which broke twice on my heli -> split systems like ESC + FBL/Rx. The heli may not require S.A.F.E., but telemetry is welcomed.

I'm sure it could be done, and I am not saying that it's a bad idea.

BUT: I have noticed that when HH re-issues a model, it usually doesn't live up to the original. And I would prefer maximum parts commonality between the original and reissue.

Don't misunderstand me, I'd be the first in line to buy one if HH were to offer it.

Forgive me if I am threadjacking, but I actually thought of a good simple upgrade for a reissued 130X that would improve it and not cause too many issues with parts commonality.

Make the frame halves attach, not with screws, but with bolts threaded into nuts on the other side.

Pros: Never strip out a tailshaft or bearing mounting screw again!

Cons: More parts and it may be tricky to get the nano-size nuts to thread.

I'd also beef up the area where the cyclical servos mount to the frame. I have seen too many frames ruined by a broken mount, especially on the left (port) side.

A new Fusion 250 with a Belt Drive Tail, ya i know we have a 270 BUT , they could put the new FC6250HX FBL on it and they already have the frame and head from the 250CFX , from HHs standpoint, this would make a perfect next Fusion model i think...I would buy it for sure to replace my 230s ..
