$130.00

Servos (4x)
http://www.hobbyclub.com/product_inf...oducts_id=1006

$10.00

$180.00 + shipping

Since I have a AR6115e RX I can use. Price will vary depending on the RX.

Zeb. I'd recommend this setup up. It all comes from one place so it will be cheaper on shipping, and its in the US.

The topsky mini is a much higher quality then the binary. Comes with pre cut wings too! And it has a rudder. The build is longer, but you can make it turn out really nice.

$22? I spent $10 for 3 Turnigy 1550A's and they are working fine so far!

5.5g... no weight issues either.

Yikes, by the time you add the cost of that up, the Binary 900 is less than this Topsky thing

Nope I don't know an alternative.

$66 for tiny servos... wow

I was hoping to fly this weekend... but now with that storm coming, it looks like that may not happen

That's why I've been building/setting up stuff lately.

Jason, neither of us has flown or built both so I doubt that you can make a valid argument about it

Ummm and pre-cut wings? LOL mine came cut, you mean the ailerons? No for that...

Rudder isn't necessary and it's too complex to set up
