  • Gian,

    I haven't added up the cost of the parts, it's not unreasonable as I am using relatively low cost ESCs and brushless motors. NitroPlanes is a good source for these. In any case, it's an experimental platform for software development, so cost has not been a primary consideration so far.
  • Final cost?
