I wish that it had the film on both sides..

When i look at the part prices, the BL motor is almost 300% of the brushed motor price.
The AR6400BL is more expensiv than the non BL version and a 2S setup need more batteries and also a charger with balancer.

it's like a modern indoor depron aerobat... they only mill one side. This is the same except lighter as the super thin plastic would be lighter and tougher than a thin depron milled surface.

Eek!!! I didn't see the price yet when I first posted. $160 for a brushed umx? $170 for a 4 channel BL micro.

I just think that I would pay the weight penalty for getting all the extra strength by having it on both sides for my use of the plane..

I know the reason for the bigger delays of release dates. They will give you the time to read all the posts

I wonder just how many of us have a place inside to fly this.. Compared to how many have a place outside close to their house to fly a nice brushless 4 channel WWI biplane..

The 4-Site cost $130 with 4-Port charger and $80 for the PNP version, i think the extra should be in the same range. I bet the price will go down.
