I was told Blade isn't done with big heli's yet at Ircha. Something awesome might be coming back but don't hold your breathe.

I was told something similar in passing at IRCHA. A couple Blade people kinda said some stuff that made me think they have some forward movement on some things.

The rubber coated dx9 was pretty cool too. Felt good in the hands.

This is a very interesting thread. I would totally be on board with a Pro Series resurrection. I never owned one, but heard they flew great, and with Horizon backing them, the customer service was second to none.

A 700x nitro already exist.- it was a special proyect for the original team.-

That is not fake news.-


That something will happen ... lol it's horizon ! They just redid the mxpc, the little 130, 230, etc. Who knows ... the 700x had / has one of the best cyclic feel and flight envelope, if the tail gears... and the recalls ... and the early retirement ... duh MSH is going nitro, goblin already ... so ? Mmm i don't think so!

I have seen the Nitro 700X fly at a small Ohio air show that had an RC demo. The guy flying it did several demos throughout the day. It was cool, but a nitro is a nitro. Brian James indicated that the 700X nitro models were a one-off design by James Haley more of a proof of concept that the 700X could be produced as an electric AND a nitro version with only a few minor changes. Very similar to what Nick Maxwell did with the Thunder Tiger Raptor E700.

If Blade produces another large heli I would take a serious look at it. I think the 700X was killed off before it had a real chance to carve out its place in the market. From what I have gathered, it was a few small changes away from 700 electric nirvana.
