I really love the new tricopter kit, and have been wanting to build one. but there are so many choices surrounding parts and build options I've been holding off due to sheer options overwhelm.
I looked at the RTF option, but 800 bucks just to have someone else slap it all together is way more than I could even consider affording. Besides, half the fun is building the thing.
I really wish you guys would offer an ARF version. All the recommended parts all ready to be assembled. Essentially, THIS:
(That's from the RTF system you offer, minus the assembly costs)Pro Tricopter Delrin Kit $94.99 1 $94.99
NX-4008 Motors $35.99 3 $107.97
18A ESC $15.99 3 $47.97
CCW 10x4.7 APC Props $2.93 2 $5.86
CW 10x4.7 Pusher APC Props $4.39 1 $4.39
GoPro Vibration Pad $15.99 1 $15.99
KK Board $15.00 1 $15.00
Servo $35.00 1 $35.00
10mm Poplar Wood Booms $1.75 3 $5.25
Wiring, Zip Ties, XT-60 Pigtail,
Motor Mounting Hardware, etc. $25.00 1 $25.00
Bill-of-Materials Sub-Total $357.97
All in a box and ready to be assembled/programmed. Maybe offer a few motor/ESC options, but otherwise a standard kit that would be guaranteed to work as long as the build directions are followed.
I would buy that RIGHT NOW if it was available.
