Hobbyking is retireing from heli ?

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

    Even genuine Align parts are getting really hard to source

    Multirotors will go the same way in a few years.

    Very Annoying trying to get the parts and spares for finishing the scale projects

    Yep. Thankfully I bought up loads of crash parts for mine a while back. I get most of my bits for Align clones from rcchinamade and Tarot-rc now, but have changed brand to ALZRC with their excellent Align and SAB clones, which actually are better quality than my SAB original.

    I have to admit that everyone who messaged here is telling the truth, this cool hobby of ours RC helicopters is fading away more and more and little by little every year,it's been taken over by a drone invasion big time.

    This forum has become rubbish as well.
    There used to be tons of posts and information and now its reduced to nothing.
