Read again that offer:

"Professional FPV 22mm Glass Fiber Octa Multicopter Frame Set Kit 700-950mm Wheelbase"

It was posted here before that they offer two versions (one CF, one GF).

for the most part, GLB is good to go with regards to fullfilling orders.

Free shipping is very slow, but if you pay for EMS, you get your hardware (as long as its in stock) very quickly.

I have been pricing things around and also found carbonfibertubeshop.com, can anyone else verify the quality? 8,000 dollars for a Cinestar 6. I would agree its not rocket science, unless you are using CF in space (which they do because of thermal expansion). Six 3/4 inch CF tubes 14 inches so long sandwiched between two thick pieces of CF plate. Maybe even buy the gimbal. I don't think that would cost 8,000 dollars, maybe 800...

you have to pay to play.

Cinestar's are "Pro" and those three letters equate to about $600-$900 in perceived value. Same goes for Droidworx frames (although I do like and use DW frames)

Working on one as we speak, and I'm happy with it.
Weight, strength and rigidity (black soot on fingers) feels like real 3K. Clean cut plates and everything fits nicely.
