Default How much do the shogun's cost new?

I've been looking at this heli and I was wondering how much they sell for new. It looks like it has a wire drive tail, and an installed motor. It is 90% ARF Can anyone let me know? Thank you!

The original Shogun was a torque tube drive machine. It was just about the first 400 size machine that flew rather well out of the box and was relatively affordable. Its greatest shortcoming was the torque tube drive. It was, or I should say the gears were, very fragile. They stripped with the slightest tail blade contact with the ground. EF did come out with a V2 Shogun that had a belt drive and it was much better. However, the V2 came to late. By the time the V2 was available the T-Rex 450 was available and it was a much better machine all around. The V2 is still available at about $100 with a brushed motor. You may be able to find a V1 for less, but I wouldn't be bothered. Here is a link to the distributor's Shogun page. The machine is not selling well and I wouldn't be surprised if the distributor quit supporting it.
