If you can argue why your's is better than others, you could take even more money than they do. If customers are convinced that they get more, they are willing to pay more.

If you bundle up the head and tails with your fuselages to packages, you could make a special prizing so the head comes down to a prize like the others. People who want to put your heads on other bodies than yours should pay more than those who buy everything from you instead.

Also, you could provide a timely limited ( 3 months to 6 months? ) refund voucher with your bodies, so customers would still benefit, if they decide to buy the heads after building. The effect: The prices show, that the items are of high value, but if somebody buys a lot from you, he gets a good deal for a high value product.

I think the goal should be to sell a head with every body. Nobody will fly these heads without a scale body. Your advantage are your really nice and unusual bodies like SeaKing, Lynx, Mi 24 which require these heads to make them complete.

To lower a price later is easy, to raise it is difficult. So you should try to sell at a high level first if you want to earn some money.
Very well said. Offer quality, and get paid for it.

If by in-line blades you mean the blades are in the same plane of rotation, then it's not a cascade type T/R.

Lots of good stuff here for background and terminology:

The AH-64 Apache has a cascade T/R for two reasons. First is tail authority and the second is acoustic signature reduction to help them quietly kill the targets.

Looks good and I guess it comes unassembled, not a complete single fuselage.


My fren Ong will be very interested, he has been dripping saliva on a AH64 for a very long time. But he same as me, building skills are zero.

Don't worry for the build skill . it look a lot parts (more than 40 molds ) but all is very fit (cnc make ) ,and a lot optional addition parts can add .it is a very fun and let you chance to show off your skill . No paint kit are welcome .SEE my 90% scale landing gear ! You will love it very very much ! the suspension are work .

Hi Kin,
this is a GREAT news ! The right opponent for the Mi24 Hind
( Mine is missing in action since Sep. 15th - no update on the tracking system since )
To have both in the air chasing each other would make up a nice picture.

I would go for an unpainted version, since it's a lot of fun to do the details. By the way, is it possible to change the mechanics from the Mi24 to the AH-64 ?
