It's crazy! $1000+ for motor, esc, and some packs... I'd take the DA 60 over that any day!
I'm sure, like everything else, the price will come down over time. I'm sure the release of other 60cc electric options will help bring down the cost as well.. Only time will tell..
I don't tend to fly over 6 or 7 minutes much either, but I guess what you said (if you have the packs) would be the key.. An electric motor also needs an ESC that would bump the cost up. Combine that with lipos-- forget about it! I don't think the cost is very comparable at the moment, but I'm sure it will be soon.. That's one pricey setup right now.. but like all electric-- i'm sure the cost will come down substantially in time...
