New Blade Heli; We Have the First Scoop!

As far as I can tell, we have the first image on the web of the new Blade Scout CX helicopter! Horizon hasn't come out with a release date yet, but this new heli is going to be huge. It weighs just over half an ounce, has 3-channel control, features a 2.4GHz radio system, and comes with a 70mAh 1S LiPO battery. It even has a heading lock gyro on board. But the most amazing thing about this helicopter is the price: it will sell for just $49.99! Flight time is reported to be about 6 minutes on a charge, and the transmitter acts as the charger.

UPDATE: Horizon has officially announced the Scout. It is estimated to be released in late October.
