    Just went there to pick up an X Mod Barricade and discovered they have an RC Blackout Helicopter. I have never heard of this before, but without the search function, I can't look to see if it has been reported. If it is new, or anybody would like pics I'll be glad to post them up for you.

    Edit:
    Here are the pics:

    Can't tell too well from the photo, but I'm not sure that's even the same model helicopter as Blackout. I would assume it's basically a repainted existing RC chopper, for better or worse.

    (don't consider this a complaint, merely an observation)

    so how are these X-MODS? It seem I need something to do since things have been slow at work and I have so much time on my hands atm, so I'm thinkin of pickin up a Barricade or maybe a Starscream. Anyone have any problems with them?

    Argh I wanna see Blackout

    The Starscream and Blackout are not XMODs.

    The XMODs are remote controlled cars that you can modify with new/additional parts. I think only BB and Barricade are XMODs.

    The remote controlled SS is styrofoam, and this Blackout is as well.

    i use to work at radio shack, and i remember that all the helicopters they sold just flew up and down, even though the controller had a left/right stick. So they just kinda’ ended up flying anywhere. :(

    Cool find, Alphie!

    I know you prolly won't open it, but I'd love to see someone do up a review before I get it.

    $40 isn't bad, I guess, but I'd pay $400 for one that flew well and transformed to land.
