And SAB blades? Are these brands not popular? Or is it a distribution rights issue?

Just curious.

Give them a call and ask them! They have been more than happy to answer all of the questions I have asked them.

I can answer the blades.
They sell their own brand. "maverick", you might say, well they sell Vblades and Tunder Tiger. Yes they do, but perhaps those two sell more than the SAB, and they feel that the Maverick will preform as well as the SAB.

HeliProz has good prices and selection from what I’ve seen. I bought a Shogun V1 from them last year with a CC Pixie20 brushed controller for $59.99. But it’s a pain in the butt to find anything on their web site.

I sent them an e-mail telling them to pay someone to build them a decent site. Who knows maybe they will.

Instructor: Don’t you know anything? Newbie: I don’t even suspect anything!

It may be a little harder than some to find things but.........

I can go to their site and find out if it's in stock without calling them. That in itself get them some of my business.

Perhaps their house brand "Maverick" blades are their most profitable blades?

SAB has a new distributor
Well,

SAB now has a new distributor in Synergy, so maybe things will change.

Yeah, I think a hundred or so people have sent them emails about the site design. From what I heard a couple of years ago is the owner just didn't care. Maybe that has changed lately. It's one of the worst I've seen, Rick's being one of the best. The old one was a bit better than the current design.

But their service is great and if you have a question, it's a toll free number to get them. Does Kurt still work there? Been forever since I've ordered anything from them. I'm looking at the Trex now though, so my communications will probably increase a great deal!

Yeah Kurt still works there, just talked to him a couple of days ago. Real nice guy.

Man I feel the exact opposite about their site, I find it easy to use and Ricks is horrible!

For some reason Rick's website just doesnt do it for me. I perfer Heliproz's website better. Although, I still order from both. Whoever has the better price/deal at the time.

Not knowing if something is in stock when I place my order can cost me a day. I prefer to shop at a site where I can see right away if they have the part or not.

HeliProz
Well I ordered some Radix blades from HP, hope they are worth it, from what I have read here they are that and a bag of chips. Kurt is a great guy, knows his parts and stock. And I think Eric takes care of the website, it's as dry as him.......IMHO

I guess the reason I liked Rick's so well is because I owned a couple of Fury's. It was VERY easy to find the parts as long as you knew the part numbers. He has the drawings on his site for that bird, so the part number was easy to find too.

I'll have to give ole Kurt a call. Just picked up my Trex SE last night!
