Ya gotta think. A brand new plane & motor is about $1000. Then add 600 for servos and batt. Ya gotta new plane for $1600. Once used. It worth half.
For an ARF you are probably right. For a stick built Carden NOT. Carden is not an ARF and just the airframe when finished is every bit of 1,000 by itself. I am currently building a 30% and with hardware covering and all the little stuff you need to build, is around 700 and it is not a carden where the box of sticks cost 550. The DA100 and all the electronics is another 1,200 easy. When RTF I will have alot of time and around 1700 in it. A Carden you will have around 2,000
