If my memory is correct, you probably paid less for the Mini Vapor than you did for your Ember (Jan 2010 Ember BnF was $89 and Vapor was $99, from WayBackMachine, and Mini Vapor is currently $79 BnF). IMHO, there is no way this plane is pricy. It's less expensive than the original Vapor was when it was first released, which I think was $99 in BnF version. The Mini Vapor is a screaming bargain (again IMHO).
