Blade 130X Comin' At Ya in June

They say there are only two constants in life: death and taxes. I think we can add a third item to that list: a new Blade helicopter coming out every few months. Last week, Horizon announced the new Blade 130X collective-pitch helicopter. After seeing it at the Toledo Show, I am stoked for this to come out.

It features a brushless main motor, a shaft-driven tail with variable-pitch tail rotor, and a killer paint scheme. It's going to be available only in Bind-N-Fly mode, and will sell for $279.99. Look for this to hit shelves late June 2012.
