I realize there are different products for many different parts of the market. We build our products for a very specific segment of that market and to the highest quality possible.

Tabb
That actually makes sense.. both targeting high end segment and laser targeting... Is the laser targeting a Easter egg feature found in the new Radian system?

Yeah man ..Lasers, I want some too.. I wonder if the cloners will be making them to as i doubt i'll be able to afford the real ones...

Ok back on topic then, i wonder if anyone useing the Budget Octo frame, or the real one for that matter is using any other sort of damping for their camera mounts.? I'd be interested to know as im planning on fitting a Photohigher AV130 (GLB have something very similar to those too) Im using a real one though,and im trying to work out what type of base plate i need to get cut..

Hexa does the clone have an easy way of removing the arms for transport? I have seen the real CS 6 fit into a Pelican 1550 case and I was wondering if the clone can do the same easily?

I don't even know what you are trying to say?



Also I dont think you have any idea how much it costs to design built, market, distribute and support a product.

If you think that Tabb is getting rich off FreeFly you are crazy. (I want the CineStar line to be cheaper as well, but I dont try to say that a clone frame is better than the real thing and then say people who buy the real one are stupid and spoiled)

There are many people in this industry that work their ASS off to help this community push the tech forward.

These guys set a price based on what they can afford to make them at....

x468.com, Rusty's Frames (AGLhobbies), Askman and Gary (TPPACKS.com), DJ (Photoshipone) and many many others.

They are not over priced, they are priced at what it costs to design, develop, market, produce and support their products.

I dont even think this thread should be about the stealing of IP but what it should be about...


it should be about the differences between the real one and the fake one...

like the thickness of the CF center plates, tensile and compression strength of the CF tubes, quality of hardware included, and availability of spares.
yes ill admit I'm full UK British and I'm not good with spelling bud but i still try and i have the Brain's to build and fly RC things so just because you think you are so good with your spellings dont really bother me , whats a couple of full stops really at least im trying give me a bit of credit ,you seem to be a bit of a bully your self to be honest , if you don't like what I'm trying to say well don't read them
I'm not perfect but at least i have a life and i do my best

I've built a few home built aircraft as you can see by my videos and yes i will modify bought frames as well to get them to fly better as you will see in the first video

NAZA flying FPV Video (7 min 17 sec)


playing with the naza. music version video (4 min 4 sec)


,now I am waiting for my new big boy fake Cinestar to come ,IV put the order in from Hong Kong for one ,
I have motors and esc to fit to it and i will be using my new devo12s radio system to fly it, I'm thinking of a simple flight system like a rabbit board i have, or even a wii board both are good and i do have all the GPS to go with them ,one will go on it as soon as iv completed this task, iv got rid of my naza because the gimbull setting was rubish , ill do a video and show you can do a good job and not spend to much money and keep it as a low cost

Maybe the quality is slightly higher on the Cinestar but in my opinion (and thats all it is) it is overpriced. The cost of the dampners for instance is very high for what is involved and the materials used. Maybe if the cost weren't so high then there would be no place for a clone in the first place... and just for the record spares are available for the clone, and i bet i could get them faster from china than i could from USA and without the tax as everything coming from the states gets a hefty lump of tax/duty added..

100% right tax/duty from the USA have to be the worst iv ever had in the uk . i mean every time i buy from the USA i allways get it in the neck. i bought my nazza from the USA and it cost me 140 plus 37 tax ,so as you can imagine i got the red card from the post office, i had to spend a extra 5 in petrol to go and pay and pickup the nazza

So vote for someone else for public office that will change the VAT system in your country.

Paying the import tax is not an issue with the USA.

Another great benefit of buying the clone from a far away land. I do hope you get your missing items soon.

Apparently GLB is now selling the REAL Cinestar-8 and Skyjib frames, but at $3000+ USD!
