And oh yeah, you changed the last quote in your post loser!! Dishonesty sucks. My quote read "How many jobs were lost because Vic moved overseas." Last time I checked, Align, Century, Synergy, Outrage, or Mikado didn't move their factories from the US to overseas! Vic moved his company, and to do that, you have to let people go, that did not happen with the companies I mentioned.

Your right I did change (it I should have reflected that), but my intention was to show just how your post sounded in another light, showing how hypocritical you are being by basing your buying on this idea.

Consider this, If Vic's "problem" is only employee related, Why didn't Curtis have his blades made HERE in the US? Surely he could find a competent company to have them done here? Or maybe another underlying factor is COST?!?! Radix Blades have been selling for the same price as V-Blades, but with V-Blades being made here in the states, whose COSTS do you think are HIGHER??

Now you want to SPECULATE that Vic isn't going to pass off any SAVINGS to you due to the lower costs of production?
Does this move benefit us as consumers at all, I doubt that V-blades are going to pass their savings on to us!!
Better look around to see who's making huge profits in this hobby...(here's a clue, it AIN'T US manufacturers...)

People are paying TOP dollar for cheap plastic crap made overseas and are all a smiles, at the same time complaining about the economy, how people are losing their jobs...Don't you see how hypocritical that is?

I understand your point, I am just venting, did not mean to offend. You are right on who is making money. Curtis started his production overseas, so I don't see that as directly causing the loss of jobs, but yes, I do believe it is hard to compete with overseas manufacturing. I try to buy as many US products as I can, like the Xera Motors and Perfect Regulator Products, but some products just can't be bought from US manufacturers. I did not buy my TREX 500, a buddy owed me money and I took it in trade, but I can't complain about the value of it, it is well made. The only US made heli I can think of is the Pantera's, but I really don't like them too much.

I realize that, but there have been a lot of similar posts and discussions. I'm not offended, I just don't see the logic of your post/complaint about V-Blades production moving overseas and trying to improve their business/sales/availability when all your models are MADE overseas...

If you can't find a US Designed & manufactured helicopter, you're not looking very hard.

Just curious, which companies dood?

Century used to have some models that were made in the U.S., but all the new models are coming out of China per their website. I thought Pantera, but I guess not, I am not sure about Gohbee, but they just dropped the Stinger 50, and have put all new heli's on hold, perhaps the economy is getting them.

There is also American RC Heli's, but they only specialize in scale stuff, not 3d.

As Bert said in a video a few weeks back that they are not to far out and it should just be a matter of weeks.

Setting a deadline in this industry is the last thing anyone wants to do since there are several components that go into the products that we all enjoy and parts come from several different suppliers.

Many are wanting and waiting, all we can do is wait and know that when the time is right we will get a flawless top quality blade or better yet a V Blade.

Bert was definately hesitant about giving a date. He just kept saying within a month or so. I know several guys were using test blades at the Las Vegas event. Soon my friend. Very soon.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
