For clarification, the Oxy 2 is for sure going to be produced. The Oxy 4 is simply a tinkering of Luca's. It may or may not ever make it to production.

Thunder tiger parts issues have been 99% resolved. You can order parts directly from hobby and recreation products (hrp)They even have crash kits available again. The fiberglass fuselage has been spotted in the wild as well.

I saw the Oxy 2 and it was a 3d printed prototype - uses the zeal 210 mm blades. They say it will be out in December.

I also got to see Dunkin Bossin throw around an Oxy 3 - man did he abuse it, but it held up.

Also, rumor is Angelos is working on some additional Tail firmware for the vortex's to perfect piro rates. He didn't have an announcement date, but it was close.

Also, that protos max 2 sure looked sweet. The frame looks like a resin mix that is super light and stiff.

No shit?

Well, I stand corrected, except for that whole "14+ months from announcement to available" thing.

Seriously though, that is good news that the 160 is finally available. I know a lot of people have been waiting excitedly for it.

Not strictly heli related, but this has to be news surely. The Miami Dolphins owner is investing $1m in drone racing:
http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/13...-racing-league

It also looks like Nick's prediction for FPV is coming true, I've seen a Facebook post for an event which has both quad and FPV plane high speed racing.

You would think Curtis's "unique" (trying to be nice) collective pitch quadcopter design would be immune to being copied. Wrong. Hobbyking released their own version.

I am actually surprised it took HK that long.

Is it actually a clone or just the same concept?

Not sure. I've never bothered to look at either for more than a couple seconds.
