Re: Horizon Hobby Recalls Blade Helicopters

They're just asking people to do what they said a long time ago- contact them for the updated parts. What's new about that?

Re: Horizon Hobby Recalls Blade Helicopters

Yep, that's really old news at this point. The fix has been out for a couple months now. For the record, I never had one of the original weaker ones fail and I crashed it a number of times.

I have two of them and neither of them ever failed! I have replaced both head assemblies with the updated ones and continue to enjoy them! A fantastic product with fantastic support!
