That's like saying that a compact car is cheaper than a mid-size. Those planes aren't even close to being in the same category. They're 30-size park-planes. This is a 50-size
plane that is intended to be flown at a club field or other location that's suitable for large models. That's two sizes up
from the 48" ships. Compare the Splendor with other high-quality 6s 50-size pattern ships & it's a completely different story.
