Absolutely needs iron crosses, too. I was thinking about bumming some stock Slow Stick decals off someone, but they might be just a smidge too big. Hmmm....
What is the total cost to build one of those?

I think that I might be going for a multirotor instead... but I'm not sure Kinda want to do something micro like the Scythe from Crash Test Hobby.. would be good for around here with limited launch and flying space, until you get higher.

You can probably get a decent quad for like $150, or $100ish if you go crazy cheap, maybe.
