According to this article, this very ordinary looking quadcopter from AirCover Solutions that's being promoted to US police forces costs $40,000 to $60,000. Can anyone explain why?
Can you say $400 dollar hammer all over again - LOL .....It looks like a lotus 580P from AlishanMao.... :)
Man this just shows you how out of touch the DoD is....
Well it comes in a Pelican case. Do you know how expensive those things are? ;-)
Kenneth: Good point--that's $150 explained. Now we just need to explain the other $59,850 ;-)
Hahahahaha, Man and I thought my Tumi was expesive ;)
That is how much you have to charge when you only sell 10 or 15 per year
The 'intrinsicly safe' certification would cost a bundle.
This must include a service contract and formation etc...
Some thoughts about why the 60K$ value
Communication frequency and equipment, Top quality TV camera, Zoom lenses, Camera orientation system, Video HD transmission system, Base station sophistication, Telemetry, Production cost, Customer support, Warranty Sales and marketing and ….. profits !!!!
Maybe because it's "Made in USA " ;)
See the decal..
