The price lists Ive seen indicate that the price could very well rival or at least come very close to the price of a TREX. Still a bit early to be sure tho.

There also will be a eCCPM conversion kit sold so that you can convert your normal EP to an eCCPM. This also well be very competitively priced.

In addition they are going to have their own line of ESC's, CNC upgrade parts, motors, and more.

If they can fix the apparent problems with supply i think this thing is going to be some real competition for Align. If you look at the spare parts pricing it even less expensive than align parts and the way you can buy the spare parts is better thought out. For example you can buy alot of pieces individually which eliminates buying a whole tail rotor head when you only broke the grips for example. The frame replacement parts are also sold in 2 parts. Upper and lower. The list goes on. They thought this through it looks like and thats a good thing for us.

Kit and Parts Availability
An important point to me is kit and parts availability. Align has been doing a pretty good job of providing both through its various Dealers. If Wes ever decides to carry this new bird I might consider it. It does not make much sense to jump into a new Heli without both kits and parts being available.

Even if I don't end up with one of these if it is successful at all it could push the marketplace further in the same way the Rex did - even lower priced parts, better parts selection (by more logical components or individual pieces). It's better for everyone if this is aggressively priced and not junk. We'll see!

I hope that tail is not like the quick tail? What a pos that is.
For me the metal tail is not needed and causes more problems
than they fix.
