Default Why Is The Zagi Fixx So Expensive?

I saw a new Zagi Fixx in my hobby shop the other day for the
bargain price of $149.99
Compared to the GWS Tigermoth kit, same motor, same prefinished foam type construction why is the Fixx so
much more money?
Yes I know the Fixx includes a cheap ESC and battery
but this is a $99.00 kit at best?????

What do you guys think? compared to the regular Zagi
and many other good park flyers that are available do
you feel this is a good Deal? I can buy three GWS kits
for the price of one Fixx. I need my R/C Fix but not this
bad?

Supply and demand. If it's too much then don't buy it.

The Zagi had an extra year of R&D before it was released...Jerry (the owner of Zagi) told me the cost's were unbelieveable to get the Fixx to market.

Don't know how old you are, but remember when calculators were 99.99, now they are a buck.
Or maybe the OOOOHhhh is t's so cool and new factor?
BTW- nice advice, Ryan.

Have you ever flown one of these? Definately worth the bucks for a park flyer that flies this great. I fly mine every day at lunch in back of work, and it really stands up to a beating.
