As far as my frame comparisons go - whatever - I am making the point that you are not making an apples to apples comparison and what you are calling sarcasm comes across as unfair disparagement of someone we don't know.
In regards to the hobby sites buying from a wholesaler like harbor freight and marking up, that is where it is my, your, our job to be educated consumers and look for the best deal we can find and perhaps share here on these very forums for the benefit of all R/C enthusiasts. Happens every day all across this great land - capitalism!

I don't need to search to see that there is a wide price range for most of the items we buy for the hobby - all I am saying is that the asking price for that particular item is not as ridiculous as you lead others to believe.

And now back to our Naza love-fest!
I dont really think it's ok to use ideas from instructables and try to profit. it kinda goes aown tsunami what the purpose of the site is doesn't it?

sorry you brought it up I was just showing what I found.


anyways yes back on topic

Technically GLB sells Dji, and v450 frame can only be compared to gauix330 frame.

what about all these hobby sites selling harbor freights helping hand for triple the price? have you searched that?
Wallah? What is that?

ok - absolute last word - I do think its ok for someone take that item, source the parts, assemble it, package it and ship it for a profit - you bet. Its hardly something one would call intellectual property.

If you read carefully the parts workout to about 24.00 without tax and shipping. The article also recommends purchasing a 28.00 assembly tool for the arms as it is very difficult to snap together without it. A one time purchase but one would still have to sell several to make any kind of profit. Factor in fuel to source items locally, etc. Again, time and materials....

Have a good night and hope you feel better soon...

Steve

oh you have 4 years? yea I have 4 years of college wasting my parents money as well, I did learn a few things that would never help in my career though.
