I watched a video of a demo in Sweden where a self bailout feature would be soon available. The soundtrack said it would be available in the Fall of 2014. The post was made around June 2014. Has any new info been released?

I cannot check if this is the correct vid as I'm at work and YouTube is an evil empire (according to SGBD)but these were posted on Heliaddict

A bit more info

VBar NEO now with bailout feature

VBar NEO will come to market in four varieties:

with integrated receiver for VBar Control
without receiver for use with other radio brands
both also available with additional, external sensor

VBar NEO is equipped with the latest sensor technology for flybarless as well as for the bailout feature.
The additional external sensor should be used where a standard VBar Silverline would have been chosen. The sensors (silverline type) with ring technology are still preferable on models with high vibration levels.
External sensors can be retrofitted any time. VBar NEO detects the external sensor and switches operating modes automatically. In case of a sensor failure, VBar NEO will fall back to the internal sensors, thus providing real redundancy and providing additional operational safety.
The bailout feature works independently from the external sensor.
VBar NEO can be set up using a VBar Control or a personal computer/laptop computer running MS Windows or MacOS.
VBar NEO will be brought to market with the reasonably priced Express version of the VBar firmware and can be updated easily at any given time (e. g. with Pro version, bailout feature or new and exciting features to come).
Update and registration processes will be much more straightforward, using the same VBar Control Manager tool already known from VBar Control. Featurs and Apps can be added easily through our App Store.

It is probable that the processor and memory available in the mini and silverline is not enough for the bail out feature.

I have also read that with the NEO a much better nitro governor is also on the cards, probably because a new processor and more memory is going to be used.

The second video is the one I saw. After he lands, he speaks about the features and says release in the Fall. The video post was dated in June 2014 so I assume the NEO is released?

I have VBar Control and I read some old guy like me is slowly losing his visual acuity and it would be nice to have it. I don't want to change to Giant Scale airplanes like the old farts in my club. I love rotary-wing flight and have been doing it on and off since 1985.

So are the above 4 varieties available in Europe today?

EDIT: I saw a post after a search that new TX cases with metabolized knobs and rubber switch available March 2015. NEOs available April/May. A redesigned logo 700 Fall 2015.
