Hello!

I was wondering why Venture 90 and Sylphide 50 and 90 are difficult, if not impossible, to find in US or Canada? They are so gorgeous!

Thank you,

Michel

My guess is that the Sylphide 50 and 90 - while beautiful helicopters - don't really fit the North American market. Both of them are dedicated F3C machines, and 3D is the craze in the U.S. and Canada.

As for the Venture 90, my only educated guess is that the smaller Ventures were never really a huge sales generator in the U.S., so the 90 isn't seen as a good item for this market. Plus, it would tend to cannibalize sales of the Vibe 90, which is arguably the equal or superior of the Venture design.
