My guess is the oxy 2 is a more popular heli.

Align realized this and released a heli between the Oxy 2 and oxy 3 in size.

The Align 300x replaces the Trex 250.

Align sat on the same Trex 250 for almost 10 years because no other manufacturer was interested in releasing a heli this size. The Oxy 2 came in a couple of years ago and has dominated this market.

Align knew that had to do something so they released the 300x.

It will be a hard slog to convince people to get the 300x over the oxy 2 and oxy 3.

Align will have to drop the price of the 300x to get more interest

I had a lots of trex 250 s and the pain they can be, I think price point is fine, its about the same for the kit version as building a oxy 2, except they come fully assemnbled and have a way way bearing, But lowered price always helps sales. They should sell a empty kit, Im not using any of the stock electronics, what is a big difference is how cheap the parts are, about half of what a oxy cost to fix,.It may be a flooded market with a great oxy helis but hopefully it will gain popularity.

I agree with you but Align is too stupid to realise that selling an empty kit will help sales. There market strategy has always been design a heli around Align specific electronics and rely on customers buying a kit based on value for money for what you get. There is a market for the 300x because cost of spare parts for oxy 2 is going up.

Still fighting myself on my next Heli 470 or 300, i like the size of the 300 and the battery choice, i use the same battery in some planks, and quads but people tell me to go bigger, the Align combos come with a Beast. How does the 300 fly? I have only seen the one complaint regarding the bush rods, any thing else? Black Friday sales are comming

I would say how big is your close flying field?, ether size heli is a great choice.I have a smaller field next to my house, Stk the 300 fly heavy but really stable and short flight times around 3:30, I changed all electronics in mine, its down to around 504 grams from about 580, I got mine up to 4 mins flights even with higher headspeeds. Good news is that parts are cheap and it crashes good, feather shaft, main shaft mostly , blades have made it through 2 crashes un hurt . even still there only 15.99 . so its a great heli, i fly ikon 2, so cant comment on stk gyro, I know one of the guys that work at my local hobby shop complained that his did not roll fast with stk gyro, i don't think its the beast gyro its says miniGRS, plenty fast with ikon 2 , I don't think you would be disappointed.
