People were asking me why I went out and bought a budget 3D printer.. check the image below, this is what you'll pay to have 3D parts printed now that 3DHubs changed their business model. I would have easily spent more than $100 just to get all the parts printed for this plane. That's more than halfway to the cost of a decent 3D printer where you can print them yourself for pennies. It probably cost me a couple of dollars worth of PLA plastic to print the nose module out.
