While not a tube frame the aluminum frame is already available. 100% made in the usa by me! :-) I will say that I agree with a lot that has been said by others... Price is king and a lot of people are not going to pay extra for quality... ask me how I know! LOL.

Kregan,
Beautiful work...very nice. You need to post that once its all put together.

I also like the idea of fixing it with a TIG if it breaks!

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

compare all teh work on that frame to the goblins main structure. Even with all that top quality American made aluminum you machined- its up to the tolerances on the carbon frames whether anything lines up. I like the goblins design of mounting everything on a frame/plate and the frames are secondary, I think thats the future.

Not sure I understand this, the frame has no carbon fiber.

I think its very rude and imature of some of you members to mock what this manis doing. The fact is he is making something you and I cannot. He has made it available to all here and elsewhere, why hate on him?

I think what he's trying to do is great...some posts were jokes. I don't believe they were directed at him. Try not to take things so seriously and laugh a little.

Hi guys

I just don't get the big issue with the kit price.

If you make a complete list of all the bits in an average priced Heli, the kit is some where around 1/3 of the total..... It's the batteries, servos, esc and fbl setup where the money is.

Regards
Paul

The issue with kit price is that if you don't already have all of the tooling to make the parts, you have to sub it out to someone who does. Both options are ridiculously expensive and those costs have to be passed on to the customer. If you already own the equipment and have the skills to program the equipment and make the parts then production cost is less of an issue, but it's still significant compared to the cost of labor overseas. Would it be a bigger deal if the kit cost became 1/2 or 2/3 of the total cost to get the heli in the air? It would to me, which is why I have so much respect for what MA has done. A made in the USA heli at a very reasonable price...they can do it because it's made in house. I'd be very excited to see them get some "made in the USA" competition....
