    On my last flight with my 450 heli...I crashed hard :(. I have to order many parts like blades, main gear, tail boom, landing skids and so on. If I ordered individually it would of cost me around $75.00 so as I was browsing around I found this US$99.99 23% KDS INNOVA 450BD FBL 6CH 3D Flying Belt Drive RC Helicopter Kit RC Drones from Toys Hobbies and Robot on banggood.com for, at the time I place my order, it came out to be $ 91.79 including insurance and shipping. I figure it would be cheaper then buying parts and all I have to do is take the electronics out of the crash 450 and put in this instead. Will see what the quality is for the KDS heli. I took a chance.

    KDS makes some really good stuff. Didn’t realize they made helis too. That’s a good price for a 450 airframe.

    You won't go wrong with the Innova, I own KDS Agile 7.2, Agile 5.5, Chase 360 & an old KDS 450 clone the difference in quality in the later ones is amazing they went from building very average clones to producing really good quality non clones in a short period of time.

    Thanks Admiral for that positive information. I forgot that you have the KDS helis and you are very pleased with them. I had the Align and Tarot so why not something different. The price was right I thought. $89.00 no electronics which is OK. Can't wait to get it now Admiral :).

    If I remember correctly KDS has always made their own stuff. The biggest issue they had was QA stuff. The chase had the same issue. The 5.5 and 7.5 did very well for them. All in all not a bad brand.

    Hey Leedude1. I will do that. I'm curious my self. Right now I'm fighting with Banggood. I have a purchase order #, they took the money out of my bank but nobody knows nothing about my order. That ticks me off.

    Wow, they are generally pretty good with this stuff. I use Ali express (same thing different name) the only thing I see all the time is the shipping takes an eternity. We're used to getting things in a few days now so are spoiled. These orders take up the 30-40 days at times.. even forgot i ordered stuff and when it shows up its like Xmas LOL.
    But no sign of the order would worry me also to tell the truth. Hope it works out my man.
