Sure there's lots of 450s but one of good quality would be nice. If this will run 1200-1400mah 6s I'd like to give it a shot as have the other gear on hand.
Have you tried a Hirobo Embla ? You can pick one up for under $350 and the fit and finish quality is typical Hirobo. If you make it down to SHAG this year, you can try flying my 6s Embla.

isn't Goblin 500 expensive at 6xx bucks ?
I think they will sell it as a combo with the new mini TAG unit...
the question is: will they sell it fully upgraded with metal main shaft bearing block ?

From all of the JR helis Ive seen, they always comes with CNC parts like bearing blocks.

If you go on Horizons site, the parts pricing is very well for the JR Nex E8 and the 600 size E8 cost $530 brand new, cheaper than a Logo, Goblin, Synergy ect. I wonder if they will follow through competitively pricing the new 450. JR makes great quality stuff (albeit sometimes expensive) and I think are a great choice to have in the hobby.

I'll be interested to know if this will get good COG with a 6s1p 1400mah pack. Canopy looks very "Logo ish".

Direct Flight Control

Usually no swash driver...The links from the blade grips to the swash also drive the swash.

I literally never use the word literally right.

OK, thanks, and I suppose by 'drive it' you mean secure it so it spins with the main shaft as opposed to secondary linkage?

Did they just copy the Gaui NX4 canopy? Looks the same. Is that a Gaui NX4 canopy? The more I look at mine the more it looks like it!

It kind of does with the wrap around behind the mast. Now if they placed the whole landing gear in front of the mast, it would be a gaui.

Sorry, gaui lg placement annoys me.

I wish JR would make canopy like the rest of their line up.

Looks more like a Logo canopy to me a mini Vibe canopy would've looked cooler I think. Either way it might be finally a HQ 450, not excited about it being DFC but its negative effects of DFC not so bad on little guys. Be interesting to see price but more so if anyone in North America will even sell it.

Come to think of it, a mini E6 or E8 canopy would make it look better.

This canopy does look like the NX4 but it seems all companies are coming out with the "wrap around" style canopy. I've always been a fan of JR's Vibe style canopy though.

Look at this beautiful bird, their is nothing sexier than that!
