Re: $400 Helicopter


I have a friend that is visiting Hong Kong and Taiwan in a couple of weeks.
I hope he can buy me one there for a lot cheaper.

Re: $400 Helicopter


James,

Seems like $160.00 for the sweet little Hawk Sport with a nice muffler is a
pretty low cost for a very good entry level heli. Heck that is the price of
a good golf putter!....and there is a lot more I am sure to manufacturing
such a heli kit then a golf putter. (But advertising the putter does account
for 80% of its cost.)

Heck the retail selling price of the Hawk Sport is less then the LHS
dealer's cost is on any other heli of consequence.
