The New Huey is Announced

Blade is excited to announce the new Blade SR UH-1 Huey Gunship. The original Huey came in low and hot, the unmistakable "WHUP!" of its advancing rotor blades proclaiming to friend and foe that the "Air Cav" was on the way. It was the Bell UH-1 Huey and the exploits of the U.S. Army aircrews that flew it during the Vietnam War cemented forever its place in aviation history.

The new Blade® SR UH-1 Huey Gunship is the best ready-to-fly replica of this landmark
warbird you will find anywhere. Based on the proven Blade SR platform, it comes out of the
box completely assembled and flight tested with everything you need, including a 6-channel
2.4GHz DSM2™ transmitter and a 3S 11.1V 1000mAh Li-Po battery with charger. The Huey
body comes already mounted and includes scale gun and rocket pod details that you apply. An
optional LED light kit is available separately (look for EFLA625).
