It was Helix Hobbies, but they just severed their distribution with Minicopter. They are currently looking for a new distributor so at this point, I think the only way to get one would be to buy from overseas.

If anyone is interested in a Diabolo you can contact Minicopter directly or PM Gerd on RR. For what you can read on the Joker Cam thread they are still filling pre-orders

I'm sure they will find a US outlet soon with the popularity this kit is having.

BTW,
I did a small update on the build thread and be showing off the new "big block" hemi I got for it tonight:

From what I can gather, I belive the only way to get one is buying directly from Minicopters website, at least for now...

It's not in that the salesman told me his manager had heard Minicopter was changing US distribution and looking into it...
Anyway, they carry Shape, another boutique heli so I figured I'd ask yesterday when I was ordering something for my Protos. Just passing on the info. I hope they get Experience RC and/or ReadyHeli- my fav's.
Like Gerd says- maybe better if everything's not on one guys shoulders. Then again, ReadyHeli is the one stop Mikado shop and in that there can be benefits, not searching around.
He can set up the distribution center in my guest bedroom-
Just have to wait and see...

I just found "Peak Aircraft" is a USA distributor taking orders on the Diablo. It takes up to 6 weeks to receive.

Well I hope mine is among one of the kits he received. I got in touch with Chuck in May. Placed my $300 deposit in June. Was told the kits were shipping from Germany on June 22nd, then was told there was a delay. Still have not received a kit, and got an email from Chuck saying they may arrive Monday...anxious to receive my Diabolo.

Chuck said he received a shipment Friday, while he was at the jamboree.
You will know if your kit is there as soon as he gets back home.

I finally met Chuck at the jamboree, ended up joining him at his booth after the Speed Cup. He's a great fellow.

Here is me putting my Diabolo on display at IRCHA during Saturday.
