Edit, Rant
How is Thunder Tiger going to compete with the likes of TSA, Compass and Align, if they are going to go that ridiculous with prices?
7HV boom, $9
Align boom carbon $28 Alu $16
Thunder Tig, G4 $48
Thunder Tiger Torque Tube G4 $28

boutique heli has boutique heli pricing on parts... sounds inline to me.

You named 3 helicopters that compare to the e700 which has the pricing you are looking for.

You must be looking at the G4, which is a carbon over aluminum boom. That is a whole lot more expensive to make than an aluminum one. For the Raptor E700 the boom is $9.99 and a complete crash kit is $54.

Yeah but (warning, my opinion) the E700 is ugly. The G4 isn't.

E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

You can't beat the older raptors with the plastic frames. I remember when i had tried an X50 and seen a set of CF frames cost $100.
