Wow,, what a bunch of crap!,,
you know something thats exactly what alot of people said when MA went belly up, after spending thousands on Whiplashes. then dumped them cheap 6 months later.

I really do hope that they are at least in line with what they had customer service wise, but I suspect we are setting the Bar way too high for their return.

Wow, great news, I hope! If, if they are gonna make older MA parts please make tailbooms and torque tubes for the Stratus 90! Ours is just sitting on the drier as a very expensive static model at the moment. Was lucky enough to get the parts to put it back together but hasn't been flown since.

I would ask them to make the tail booms and torque tubes for the Whiplash one inch longer so we could run up to 720 MM blades. I would like to try some blades larger then 710 MM blades. I"m looking forward to their return, but the old MA set the bar high for customer service.

too high if you ask me. If they can manage to sell thru some popular online dealers... they will build up thier customer base in a shot time and maybe with some luck and hard work get back in the lead.

This is probably an obvious one, but I would suggest that for any new models, that they make the replacement parts reasonably priced. MA kits flew great but the repair costs made them not my primary machines as time went on. Certainly it would be nice if they could make less expensive parts for the older machines too but I would suspect that is wishful thinking.

If you want cheap parts your gonna have sacrifice something else in return... cant have it both ways. Cheap and Good dont share the same box.

What about a molded frame set that uses as much of the older components as possible? The molded composite frame might be cheaper to replace in a crash and might allow an upgrade path for those of us with older X-cells.

I like that. I'd be happy to upgrade my fury just a little more after each crash to newer/better replacement parts.

the only thing I can see is that this can work against you... Century has been doing this for quite some time. if they have a quality issue with one particular component, then all the models that share that component will suffer. Esky pretty much went completely belly up because of it.

however, if they can ensure that the shared components are indeed the best they can be and exceed the requirement for each model they are in, then they will have a manufacturing advantage. Imagine if they had 4 different models that all shared the same original OWB of the whiplash. What would have happened then when all those original design OWBs started failing?

dunno, its a slippery slope...
the only issue possibly is that you now fail to innovate.
people don't always like the idea of what a company would call a "new" heli that is really nothing but a rearrangement of the brands parts bin.

if you make the parts different but also bolt on (or backwards compatible), you have to convince those customers that the bolt on upgrade is worth the cost... but if the original is working why would they upgrade...

tough one there.
