I believe this is done to satisfy having a minimum publicly advertised price (MAP).
Yup.like Flying-llama says, the price drops after log in on Hobby King, I have gotten many "One-time only" offers on this plane at 55 Us$.
I Bought mine in a hobbyshop in Bangkok where I live, for about 70$ with one extra battery.
The good thing with the Cox name or Revell for the NE Solo Pro heli is that they will give you a good warranty and keep the spares in stock, hopefully.
I have heard that a reliable warranty is worth about 20-30% of a products price, IF thats true the Cox price starts to look OK!
