I think this should be a really nice fbless heli, the conversion looks super easy. Brings me back the the days when the R50 V2 first came out...Spending money I don't have on things I don't need to impress people I don't know

There sure seems to be a lot of love going on around here

Reminds me of back in the days when the Trex 600 was released. Everyone either loved it or hated it.

I doubt they'll be going out of business.

A flying friend here had his Vibe 50 explode 2 times on him due to a link popping off. I've seen Vigors crash as soon as they lifted off due to carbon interference and JR is still in business.

I've seen R30 and R60 failures everywhere and TT is still in business. In fact the R60 was the biggest POS at first and then became the 'heli to have' for a while after they fixed the issues

I and others crashed our Fury Experts due to a faulty molded mixing arm that cracked and broke in flight. MA is still in business.

I've seen Align failures and weak parts and they've become the biggest company in RC helis today.

Every heli company has their issues, espeically the first time out(even seasoned companies too). Doesn't mean they're cr@p especially if the company works to improve the product, as all of the above mentioned companies(and more) have and continue to do today. From what I've seen of Ely.Q they are proactive and work on issues and revise unforseen problems, that is what a good company is supposed to do.

I know you are frustrated with your heli, but for your one there are so many other Visions out there flying with no links popping off ect.

i called and talked to someone at ReadHeli....

i asked him why they are creating these deals and if they plan to no longer carry this heli.

He said "because we can......its actually the opposite, we plan on getting many more kits and need to make room. Many of us here feel the heli flies so great and we want people to buy one and try it to see for themselves.....we are trying to increase the number of Ely Q kits being flown, they are tuely great for under $250!"

I must just have got a bad set of links in the kit.... and the spare set I bought. Ive had no problems since I replaced them with Align links.

I agree the heli does fly nice and gives me confidence to fly lower.

Parts are expensive though for such a cheap kit! Thats where they get ya!

I would like to see better blade grips, painted canopy, cheaper flybars and cheaper landing skids!

The prices aren't that high. Not sure why you think the blade grips are bad.

The 440 flybar at Readyheli sells for $7.99 for a 2 pack.
http://www.readyheli.com/SearchResults.asp

ElyQ just mentioned that they are going into mass production with a painted FG canopy on their website:
http://www.elyq.com/

I will have to agree that skids are overpriced. They are higher quality than Align (with the cool pads on the bottom to extend life) but not worth the price. Good thing the Trex or raptor skids fit instead.

The blade grips just flex all over the place and they move about on the bearings which will only get worse as they wear.

In the U.K. a pack of 2 440mm flybars is £11.99!! Main shafts are £5.99 for 1!

The kit has arrived here from Rediheli in only 2 days(including Sunday) that's FAST!...shinney new FREE GY520 too

I looked at the parts bags closely a good 20 min and like what I see..
SO... Trex no2 is gonna loan out its electronics to the Vision for a while..
I have a new Hyper 50 and Outrage pipe to put in it,
the electronics will be AR7100R ,8717's,770/8900,align 620 on throttle, Outrage 3600 lipo
should be good comparison with same gear and fresh motor

I was after the Vision for ages but waited till ReadyHeli got it in stock. I zapped in my order as soon as the stock alert email hit my inbox.I feel a bit cheated as have missed out on these amazing offers that RH has been doing. If this continues it will put me off being an early adopter instead, i will sit on the fence and see what rolls around..A free heli..a free Gyro.

I am pleased for those guys who managed to pick up this heli for next to nothing. In the UK the distributor is not offering any deals to entice people into a Vision so it seems that the USA will only get these amazing deals.
Hopefully i will not miss out on the next big special.
More days at home would be nice!
