Sounds pretty expensive... I'd say like $30 a model, or $60 for something really big.

I think instead of fixed price it should be time and materials. Then everyone gets a fair price. Maybe estimate how much time it would take to say build a .60 plane, and then assume you think assembly is worth more or less 100$ and then base your per hour charge off that.

Well if you care for it, do the extra running through the airframe etc like i always do and say even $10 an hour. Id work on it after school mostly and on weekends and it took say two weeks (probably be an average there abouts) two hours after school, thats 10 hours in a week excluding weekend. For two weeks ends up at $200.

Yeah. Extra fittings (clevises, push rds, bigger wheels etc) will cost what they are worth. That sounds like a good idea $5 an hour of build time. I usually stop and start through the process so id have a stop watch to time roughl how long i work for.

I have a mini popwing and they're a lot of fun! A few other club members have one too and we do combat with them!

I'll figure it out eventually

Check this out! I've made like $1 a day for 3 days on YouTube! Awesome! Normally it's about 30 cents a day...

Hopefully this is a really good month for me to make some cash! Lots of video views for some reason, hmmmm

Estimated earnings

$1.77
Today so far

$2.98
This month so far

Putting ads in my videos... when people click on or view the ads, it gives me a VERY small amount of money... but if you get 100+ views a day which I've been getting pretty consistently, it adds up to quite a bit. I also display small advertisements on my Google Site, which makes about maybe 20% of my profit. Once I hit $100 a check comes in the mail for $82 or so... because the IRS takes out some.

Sure! You'll have to use a parent's Adsense account to get the money though... just submit information for your videos to be monetized on YouTube!
