I absolutely agree with you. The rcexplorer tricopter is very economical, and it is a great and cheap way to start in the multirotor fun. In fact, flohio and I have the fpvmanuals version of rcexplorer tricopter (which is about $100+ when you include the shipping cost).

What FPVDM offers is the versatility of having the room for all of the FPV gear ,which the rcexplorer tricopter is lacking; hence the name, FPV Dream Machine. Therefore, it is targeted more towards folks who are heavy in FPV flying.

Just my 2 cents.
