For over a thousand dollars they better provide a 10ch 4.8ghz controller and a diamond studded canopy, with a light system, a dozen boxes of blades, and a tiny version of the GoPro camera with a personalized attachment made specifically for the Quark.

Oh and a lollipop.

So you can fly your SG with it, and have 3 channels to control light system, turrets, and avoid flying squirrels jumping from tree to tree....

Or would that be 4 channels.... so maybe fly on the moon aswell.

~$1058 dollars for the STD package.... and even more for the SG/EC-145

Of course it's always more expensive in Japan, but that.. is INSANE!
Extremely insane

Hehehhehehe poor lcc014, now he's got to buy even MORE stuff

As for Hirobo.... they can take that shiny controller and shove it where the light don't shine.

You got persons sleeping on the street, and on the other hand a Japanese company selling a toy for 1000 bucks ..... WTH!!!

72Mhz is still popular in Japan. The prices are what they are. At 81.254 Yen to the Dollar it's hard to fathom that we're going to get a break on the price on anything coming from Japan.

Considering that they have the EC pegged at the same price as the SG, that would price it at about $645.00 US, since that's what an SG can be bought for now. I've rejected the SG due to the price. If the EC even comes here, I'm still not feeling it. I can buy a lot of other stuff for that kind of money.

I will buy a fleet of Solo Pros, and attach them to myself, so that I can soar the skies with a remote control!
