Laine,
They are cool looking. I doubt I could fly one. My skills are at the other end of the RC spectrum, so to speak. I can fly the Horizon stuff, Corsair, Trojan, I got a lot of micros, even a couple of those I haven't flown, Air Taxi, I don't want to ruin it.

What I would do is figure out how long it takes for you to make one. Cutting, gluing, painting, some pretty neat paint jobs, I like bright colors, but what you have done is fine. You should make money, no one works for free, so say you make $20 an hour, figure the time plus materials. I don't know what servos you are using, but heck $10 a piece plus all the other stuff, at least $140 or so would be fine.. The foaminator is pretty straight forward, much easier to build. You got lots of work.

So some where between $100 to $150 Depending on components.

I know you want to get them out there, you want to make something, you want to have fun. I won't be close so you will have to sell them where you are, air shows, SEFF and the other stuff you go to.

It is your design, have fun.

I just thought I missed the price.
