I think Im getting used to heli manufatures dropping what is my favorite heli. GMP, Schulter, Kyosho, Miniature Aircraft, now Blade have all either gone out of business or dropped that line of heli on me over the years.
As a business man I understand needeing to keep up with the market. This hobby is forever changing day to day. As a consumer it pissses me off to drop a loot of cash on a model, only to have it discontinued or go out of business.
The only good I can offer is when a manufacturer drops a model, that particular model can now be bought very cheaply from individuals giving up and bailing. Ive managed to keep all my helis I own over the years flying. Does it suck, yes, but anything RC will never be an investment.

Well I have a large investment in my cellar. LOL The last two heli's that I got were A 550X and a 600X. They are the newest that I have.
I know that I didn't buy them as an investment and I am having fun flying. So I guess that's all we can ask for. I am not a hotdog 3D flyer so my fleet serves me well. Who knows what the next deal will be but I can say that the Blades were a good investment for me.
