Hmm, I got a huge deal on them (I have contacts in the RC industry). But, I can tell you what they should cost;

The motor (AXI 5345) $240
Controller $260
Throttle potentiometer $14
Battery $600 (I paid $435)
Charger $225
Misc. materials about $300 (chain, sprocket, pulleys, belts, bearings, aluminum, etc).

Machining equipment? Hmm, about $5,000!

Oh, I am looking at a used TIG welder tomorrow. :D

Mr. Shumaker Thank you!! I have been working on a BMX based jackshaft and seeing your beautiful adaptation is really going to help.

Impressive- to say the least. I too want to see how she performs- but I have no doubt it will be exactly what you painstakingly designed it to be.

My biggest concern is breaking drive line components from too much power. These little motors are CRAZY powerful. :)
