Thats because I was willing to pay more for both the parts and shipping. Flybars were $3.25 each and shipping for standard UPS was close to $20
I added in a couple of batteries as well so that the actual order was more than the shipping
Right now I am thinking that instead of a larger fix pitch heli I am going to step up to a large CP heli. Namely the Chaos 600 with belt driven tail. Quite the size step up I know, but it will be able to handle the wind conditions we seem to keep getting down here by the river.
Just a little size comparison between the two:
- Rotor 192 mm( 7.5")
- Height 82 mm(3.2")
- Weight Approx 32g(.07lbs)
- Rotor 1350mm ( 53")
- Height 388/405mm(15.25 in/16 in)
- Weight Approx 3000g(6.6 lbs)
It will probably take me the better part of 2 months to get all the parts and build it, unless I can make and sell a few more knives to stay within my budget. I will know for sure what I am doing once my income tax, GST, and WCB payments come in this week and early next week. If there is enough left over after all the bills are paid I will probably order the kit.
