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.. Remember, and electric motor also needs an ESC...
My Q80 at 5600 watts (7.5 HP) has more power than the DA-60.....
Also, I don't have a place to store a gas plane. I store my planes inside my home, and I couldn't (wouldn't) do that with a gasser...
