250 Quad Group buy. any interest?
« on: September 04, 2014, 04:07:14 PM »
Hey everyone, not on here much but just wanted to propose a group buy idea if anyone is interested.

I have a friend that is ordering a batch of products from Emax and he offered to do a group buy for a mini quad if there is any interest.

The Specs:
250 Quad frame (green/red/blue hardware)
4x 1806 Emax motors
4x 12A simon Series ESC's
CC3d flight controller
two pair of carbonfiber 5x3 props

Might be able to get flight camera as well (he only carries PAL cameras though)

A quick price comparison
The frame goes for $50 http://www.2dogrc.com/2dogrc-juan-diego-250-sport-fpv-quad.html#.VAjDT_ldVHU

The motors go for $15-$18 http://www.2dogrc.com/emax-mt1806-2280-regular-rotation-250-quad-motor.html#.VAjDuvldVHU

The ESC's go for $8:30 a piece: http://www.xheli.com/66p-107-simon-series-12a.html

The props go for $5 a pair: http://www.headsuphobby.com/Emax-Carbon-Fiber-5030-Propeller-Set-for-Multi-Rotor-Aircraft-B-085.htm

The cc3d goes for $66: http://www.readymaderc.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=1555


So in a quick total without shipping it would be: $217 to get them from other places.

The break down that I was able to work out would be:
3-5 people: $175 shipped
5-10 people: $165 shipped
10+ people: $155 shipped

If there are any interests, please contact me on skype
or if you are local (im in oak ridge) we can meet or call.


Thanks for your time!

These smaller quads are all the rage for FPV flying.  Very maneuverable and extremely crash tolerant.  I want one.. but I've got too many multicopters currently.


Check this out.. doesn't this look like fun!
