Default RE: Prices?

i dont feel sorry for anyone who pays money for bottled water. its essentially free out of your tap. i do feel sorry for anyone who pays $630 for a 50cc size plane and $600 for a 50cc motor. there are already and will be more of both available that are of the same or better quality and supported here in the US for a lot less $$. if you want to continue to pay higher than necessary prices thats fine, i just dont get it.

I agree that the $600 plus ARF generally comes with alot of extras, AW for example has a nice product and they don't have a problem selling them so they must not be charging to much.
Wildhare for $400 plus has a awesome plane that allows you to chose your own hardware and you can get some carbon tubes and still run the price up to 600 bucks. I've bought "bargin" planes before and threw them away before I finished putting them together, much less flew them, they were total junk! If it's a nice plane I don't mind paying. There is no way you can build a plane cheaper.
Also these large plane dealers are selling a handful of planes to a very small market. Great planes sells a .40 ARF for $200 and they probably sell 500 planes to one plane from a "giant only" plane dealer, just a guess there but I'm sure it's a large margin.
