    The Blade 300 is the one to be excited about, it should be everything the SRshould have been but was not......belt tail, no fly bar......little pricey at $380 with no trans, but who said RCheli flying was cheap!

    I must have missed the new Blade 300.
    You are right, no RTF, or transmitter included. Also, it does
    not have an included AC adapter for the charger. Charger is DC only!
    For nearly $400 it should at least have an AC adapter in my opinion.

    looks like eflight is going through and improving their old junk with everyones fixes and "upgrading" them and turning around and making even more cash from people. just goes to show what happens when people with degrees get on a computer and have no idea what they are building and whats needed. they are just like traxxas imho .  other than the mcpx all of their birds r subpar and made with the cheapest  components . if they were real intelligent they would drop their prices on the models knowing they r gonna make it back in the replacement parts sooner or later. it sucks because every hs ive seen stock eflight so when u break it u dont have to wait long to get it flying again but im done with the eflight brand. gotta sell the b400's and that pos cp pro2 and buy trex's lol .

    yeah I agree, 400bucks for the 300 is a bit much
    when I saw that for the first time on there site, I was guessing $250 for it [:-]

    sad when they are tacking on prices comparable to trex and the machines arent even proven yet  atleast trex is proven and fixes their issues and exchanges known bad parts for the new and improved  i dare eflight to match that !

    I am excited about the new 500's... IMO if you look at the parts listing and the fact it is BNF ready it is a good value. I hear what you are saying about price, but it is built. Also the helis look very good under the thumbs of pro pilot. IMO if you look at the average heli pilot these will serve their purpose for sure. I have never experianced the horror stories that I have read in the past about eflite. I think most of the bad reviews of Eflite are newbies with little experiance. I am excited to fly the new 500 and 300 as well....

    eflight had plenty of time for the cp pro 2  after making the pro and they did very few changes to it and put it on the shelves . its like making a hand and selling it then turning around and cutting the same hand and offering it as a better product lmao.  just my 2 pennies
