Hi & happy new year!!!

As in title, i expect some restocking for HK 500,600,700 for 3 months for different spare parts(common spares).
Only restocking was canopy for HK600. Only a few pcs.
I watching almost every day at least 2 times for restocking.
Nothing new, worst is , what was in stock is not restocked.

    Looks very depleted stock for most heli parts.

    Looks as though it is off to fleabay for helli parts from now on. Multis are the "in thing" these days. We are just going to stop crashing as often as we did when spares were cheap and plentiful. :p

    Multirotors will go the same way in a few years.

    So true, helis are not models to fly without a constant supply of spare parts. I have two Align 500's but luckily I bought a shed load of spares at the same time. For the time being I can keep flying (and crashing) but probably not long term if the hobby doesn't pick up again and Align supplies resume. Helis are like the old joke "I'm a Council street sweeper and I won an award from work for keeping the same broom for 10 years. Mind you, I have had to replace the head 6 times and the handle twice"
