SR-71 Mk.II Scratch Build...again

Well it is that time of year and I now have a place to work on my RC stuff without the pesky wife houndind me to clean up after myself. AND I have recently enrolled in a CAD School! So for fun I started doing this project again and the instructor noticed me messing around and decided to let me do it for my final project of the semester so my gain is your gain! On with the pictures.
I started this thread here and will continue it here in the Jets forum.

Question for everyone. What do you think you would spend on a kit of a SR-71 designed for 2 speed 400 brushless motors with 2 wemo mini fans?
Short Kit?
Full Kit?
Just curious.

Based on what other twin minifan kits are selling for anywhere from $150.00 and up

This is really cool. I will be following this thread.
$150-$200 is reasonable. Please design LG into the airframe.

I vote for a full kit. $150-$200 is reasonable.
A full kit would mean that fans and motors are extra.

Just a little update.
I would like to thank Rich at Gunderson AeroDesign LLC. for doing the laser cut parts for my prototype build and offering to do the kits if or when I decide to do them.
I might be looking for some beta testers in the near future but do to limited funds I might need some $$$ from those lucky few. I will send the stuff to people at the cost I can get for them plus shipping. PM if you are SERIOUS about doing one.
