Default Cost of frames. What a world.

What kind of world do we live in where a Nano S2 frame is more expensive than a 230 S V2 frame?

Why is this?

One that requires a more intricate and smaller mold than the larger framed heli.


Tolerances are more likely finer on the little bugger than the biggun.


Costs more to produce the teenier?



My guess, I could be wrong.


HW.


( It's only a buck.)

That’s good ole supply and demand. I’m sure lots more people will be breaking frames on the S2 than the 230S.

More sales of that part = more opportunity for them to make $$.

There is an gentleman on this site who made some custom frames for the CPX which are available on shapeways.com. Maybe he will make some for the S2. His beefed up frames are nearly unbreakable.

You can see some of his designs on shapeways or he has some posts in the CPX section with photos of the frames.

Can someone talk him into designing and making MCPX and Nano CPS frames? Landing gear also would be nice.

Asking for a friend.
