I also recently broke down the electronics costs as well, based on all hobby
gear from hobbyking (rather than splitting it up as per his electronics
document) cost is a little more, but more convenience (and it's likely
overkill for this application). Also some of the parts he calls for in his
doc are no longer in stock.
ESC - $25 -
Motor - $13 -
Battery - $14 -
Servo - $3 -
Radio - $20 -
All in electronics cost: $75 (plus shipping from china)
I'll be buying at least one set or two. And I know a couple others might be
interested. So if you like we can do a combine order for parts for a bunch
of these to save on shipping cost.
Let me know.
