I was so very much interested... until I saw your price

PM me if you come down...

The fact you have zero posts and zero trader feedback does not help your cause either.

I would be willing do see it if you are local, would you add a location to your profile?

What he said ^^^^^
This one and the other that a new guy just listed look great, but price wise, they seem out of whack for what goes into them. I'm not saying they are not worth it, but when you look at some arf kits, and even RTF, $279.00 gets you a whole bunch. Shipping seems high too.

Looks like a cool flier though.

Precisely!

It seems extra-ordinarily high priced considering the electronics that appear to be on them.

Would you also give us more information on brand/distributer of motor and ESC you are using?
It appears to be some cheap hobbyking, but I would like to be corrected...

would you post a link to the manufacturer? or the distributer?

as this is a unique item that I have not seen at this high a price, I am curious who makes the paraplane and how much it costs new.

I imagine I could set up a new one for under $300

This is locally made with high quality materials . Well there is no company that makes this . And price wise this is the one of the cheapest out there if you compare with other rc paraplane manufacturers.

Sent you a pm bsbauman

no other posts
no other sales
no feedback from anywhere else in the post

I just googled "rc powered parachute" and just got thousands of results rtf, some as low as $53!!!

I agree with the other guys; you could be a great seller, but I am not going to take the risk on such a high dollar item... I am out and i am unsubscribing....

http://www.paralightaviation.com/293...ARALIGHT-MODEL price at top and in euros... I think

Seams like a good deal, since it appears these things are not really mass produced. Too bad the seller is new and not involved with the forums
