Thereís no point, they disco stuff so fast that how are you going to keep flying after 8-12 months if you crash on an average basis? I learned the hard way.

Don't crash? LOL.
We have 4 Blade 450 3d that has been converted to FBL ive not needed a part in forever since dads not been able to fly maybe i would be shocked if i did need a part for one. I do wish they would keep things around longer.

From FB it looked like they were hinting at something coming out this year that might be in between 480 and 270 but it's just rumors right now. Yes Blade needs to take a better stand on propening up their existing line up instead of just coming up with new helis and forgetting about them like some 10 y/o kid with ADD.

Maybe if this had been offered at a competitive price, it would have done much better. For the same price, you can definitely find better.

I know this one swings 480mm blades and a trex 500 only takes 425mm but i went ahead and purchased a trex 500 from a guy here, its the older model after considering the new dominator frames, those you can't stick just any battery in it. on the older style anything will fit, even fif you have to fly w/o canopy.. I guess good and bad about all helicopters but Align has been around forever. Sure they could shut the doors tomorrow, but im sure you could find parts for many years to come. I love my blade 450s i have owned and still own one. But I fly not to crash and i hope if i needed a part i could still find it. guess lucky we have 3 or 4 blade 450s here so if i needed something i steal from another heli.
Blade,e flite, horizon hobby, have very bad thing of putting out a great product but then discontinue it within first few years. Airplanes are same way.

Default Price Drop

Significant price drop for the 480 Fusion combo kit.
Yep, this product is hurting in sales.
Would have liked to bought a version of this kit, but afraid now will go way of B700X with no parts available in a couple years...

That's a pretty good deal. If they weren't backordered, I'd probably order one.

I think I will wait and check out the Oxy 5 when it's released.

My LHS has had two on the shelf since release, the same two machines are still there. Not exactly hot sellers, apparently, and dang theyíre expensive!

the price of the super combo has drastically decreased it is $749. Can't help it, I got one. it comes
with an AR7210BX - its a 6 axis fbl, 6S motor, talon 90 esc, 3 - HR6350 for cyclic & HR6360 for tail - these are ok servos but its not HV. and a satellite receiver. I am happy with it
