Phase 3 EF-16 Airframe only at Hobby People: $50

Cheapest I've seen the bare airframe and perfect for those who want to choose their own power system:

The standard ARF w/stock power system is still $100.

Can anyone confirm the fan size this plane uses? I think it's a 68mm, but not sure...

Very versatile airframe, as wingman69 mentioned it is designed stock to fit their 55mm fan, but I put in a 70mm wemo with very little effort.

LOL. They've been $50 for months and months. 70mm fits just fine.

Where do you find the plane for $50 without stickers or are you just buying spare parts to get it that way?

NM I found it. However that option is backordered. http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/109329.asp

That's just for the fuselage set. No wings (my guess is the picture is wrong; title says fuselage). There is no airframe kit w/out stickers.
