In a press release on the Ely.Q web site today they announced they have completed the process of selecting their new dealer network here in the USA. Ely.Q has decided instead of a single exclusive dealer they are selecting four different dealers each carring their entire product line.
V-Blades has been one of the hottest topics on the internet the past year; when will they be back on sale, where can I buy them, and how much will they cost? As we reported in our IRCHA coverage V-Blades is definitely making a comeback as they ramp back up the Missouri, USA factory. I was told by Vic he’s developed a completely new manufacture process and will be pumping out 690 and 710 blades very soon.
We now have an answer to one question, where will they be available for sale? Once released for sale, they will be available exclusively through Experience RC in North America, and in Europe and Asia through Fast Lad Performance.
Fresh off Kasama’s web site we have some updated CAD drawings showing the progress of the SRIMOK 90 electric design. The first thing you notice in these latest drawings is the battery placement has changed. Originally both batteries where show up front one on top of another. Now one battery is up front and one underneath the electric motor.
Looks like Mr. Kasama has upgraded the tail bevel gears in the Kasama Srimok 90. Thicker and deeper teeth. Bulletproof now.
Kasama soon to be available at ReadyHeli.Com. Parts are already in stock.

I won…thanks RCHELIRESOURCE/READYHELI! Readyheli rocks beyond all…I just got my box of goodies from them and there must have been over a half dozen mints to go along with a beautiful Mikado FBL conversion kit.

In typical Align fashion, release a helicopter, then later release another version with different colors. Well the latest heli to get this treatment is the Align T-Rex 250 “SE” edition. Instead of different anodize colors on the aluminum parts, Align is now offering silver finish.
