I'm still a bit new to the whole foam/indoor thing, but this is what I would want...
The *standard* motor, esc, servos, etc. all included.
ALl the carbon.
A bottle of glue for hinges.
Etc. Basically a complete ARF package including the electronics. Add a receiver/battery and go!
I think a $100-$120 unpainted or a $120-$140 painted kit would be reasonable.
Replacement airframes could be available for ... Say $40? You can build them cheaper obviously but if it's going to be produced, someone has to make a little bit on them.
I am by no means a businessman, but if I were to buy one pre-cut, that's what I would expect to see in terms of pricing and how I would personally want it packaged. I'd like to see other ideas.
Dan, if we've hijacked your thread with this, please stop us.
