Where's the best price?
Who's got the best price on these? I'd like to get one for my son (at least that's what I'm telling the wife).

I bought mine yesterday. The lower blade hoop was a bit out of round and I had some bending to get it right. I'd like to order more blades. I have taped mine in a couple places.
cutting the ring off the back blade made a huge difference, you can actually forward fly and get some banked corners. I have been flying it in the garage and landing on coffee tables and milk crates and such. what a blast. it's still a challenge. I have taken it to buddy's places and let them and their kids play with it. it's had a lot of use allready.
too much fun even if the controls are screwy

make sure that you tape the tip of the the blades at all the leading edges..it really saves them from cracking when you bang into furniture and stuff ..still having a blast with mine..way more fun than any micro that i've ever tried do to the fact that its cheap and you can crash this thing literally over and over and you just simply take off like nothing happened

any replacement blades out?
I hope I can find replacement blades. mine is getting quite the wobble now from the tape. with the ring off the tail blades I had a blade strike mid air. I was going forward fast and went full reverse and the blades touched and actually inside each other. 2 blades cut right through at the ring. the wobble also cuts down flight time not to mention harder to fly.

bad thing is the backwards controls. we flew the bladerunner inside today and I went out front to show the zoom. I almost forgot rotation was left stick again haha that was the ugliest take off I have ever done.

un fortunetly i think you have to order direct out of toronto..i asked about blades at radio shack yesterday and they said that if they ordered for me it could take as long as three weeks ..i also asked a guy on RCC who lives 15 minutes away from them if he could buy me some aznd mail them to me but i have yet to hear back from him...if all else fails i guess i'll call them direct with my credit card..if you find or hear of another source please inform me..thanx

there are several helis out that are very similar to the bladerunner, like the dragonfly, and the mosquito. I have a dragonfly and the tail motor was very weak and would only make it drift forward. there are videos you can find that show this. the electronics also want haywire and now does not conrtole the motors correctly and is worthless not. I would do some research before getting one. The mosquito sound the best to me at this point.

If I say duck, I'm not talking about a bird that quacks!
