Not looking at HK ...

People are willing to pay 250 for a KIT (at least I do).
I think it's fair.
As the OP said, the biggest problem they will have is getting this product to be seen differently to the usual foam stuff out there. Talking about Radians and Easygliders and Cularii etc, is I think unfair to what they are trying to do here. To quote: "the aircraft has a special "skin" which is stronger than any glass sailplane and is similar to carbon fiber". Now if that statement were proven to be true, I would be prepared to pay a whole lot more for such a glider (should I like the way it flies) than for any foamie currently on the market.
