Hey, it shows that in RC the sky is the limit for your wallet too!
I would say that the ground is probably the limit in most cases...

But honestly, the sky ain't the limit... It's only the beginning. Go price out a competition-worthy F5B ship and see what the total ends up at. Keep in mind you might be spending upwards of $150 on a single prop.

Yup, it's kind of a shame that money so easily replaces skills in many high falutin' competition categories. In high falutin' free flight top competitors have high priced builders build their planes for big bux. They just show up and collect the hardware. It got to be a farce but I think they're trying to fix it.

But there are some things you can't build no matter how skilled you might happen to be and those things tend to be irreplaceable and expensive. Oh well, they're fun to watch!

That is the kinda thinking that has china taking over ,if you want to build it at least try and then say you cant . But if you say you cant before you even try you will have already lost.
