Yes, I was wondering why it looked like a completely different group of people.

Seriously? 50k+ for the kit? Why? It's big, it's impressive, but 50k?

based on the actual quote sheet I have, that’s off about 20k, with all the options you’re looking about 43k, which is inline with the other jets in this size like AW F100 & TH L-39/Hawk.
I wasn’t trying to start a big debate or be negative just thought it was funny I had just watched the same video.
The one in the video is full composite, it’s not uncommon for something this size to cost that. Just ask lance how much it cost him to produce his SR-71 you see flying. To each there own I guess and if I had the money I would get one because Mibo makes some high quality stuff.
So relax and enjoy video, always nice to see anything in the rc world that is unique. "Only time bigger isn’t better is when it want fit through the door!" cheers, hope to see your A-10 in person Rav

Yeah, Bogo emailed me and it seems that a turnkey model is in the low $40's.

You gotta pay to play.

And yes, my Mibo A-10 1:5.8 is exquisite! From that video, that 1/4 scale looks AMAZING!

Nah, send one to become a lawyer of a Doctor so they can support you in your dotage, sell the other one for scientific experiments now to fund your RC lifestyle😁
