We will offer in 2 configurations for this Frame. One with Blade guards and another without. This is 100% made in US and as you know labor in US machine shops are very expensive and we try very hard to negotiate with different machine shops to make it affordable. This is a setup that you can count on for all kind of situation, you don't need 2, 3 models for different situation, so maybe it's not too expensive if you put that in consideration.

Blade guard version--$1,300USD
No Balde Guard Version--$1,150USD
Pre-Order for Blade Guard Version--$1,050
Pre-Order for No blade guard version--$950

Give us a week to get back to you guys on some solid numbers.

Z06 Tony---We purposely use G10 over CF. As if our frame is make of CF, I don't think I can trust the reception and Flight Controller's stability might compromise. We rather have a heavier frame that give us clean signal than a lighter frame that compromise reception and FC stability.
What you said makes no sense.
The problem with some of you design guys is you do not know about the products you are designing the frames for.
I see it all the time.
If you did you would know that G10 is not used on high end frames and CF is not gonna have the probloems you claim.
Looks like your main target audience is guys who are new to the hobby and do not know alot about this stuff.
You really should list the weight of the frame or people will know you are hiding those #'s cus its heavy.
I will guess over 5lbs.
