Yeah I would say $2200us is about right. Think of it as an investment. You don't have to buy everything at once and after you're don't you have some great servos and an engine that will work in whatever project you have in the future. You will also have a jaw-dropping Cessna Up to you though.

ps I would skip the breaks and just make the wheel pants tight with a little foam to slow you down.

Yeah its an investment all right. Thing is it wont fly unless its complete It needs at least an engine, prop, gas tank, wheels, and radio to fly. I can get the kit and build it and then work on getting the other stuff while I build it. I CAN use the radio I have now, but its only a 6 channel and I wont be able to control everything I want to. I could just get a separate reciever, baattery, and servos and once I get a new radio (Futaba 9C) it will be ready to go.

As for the breaks, I am not going to skip those. It is much safer to remotely stop the plane when it lands and if you have to abort the takeoff than to just let it roll. Plus, I dont know if this is going to be the case with the Cessna or not, but my Extra 300S will just about take off with the engine idling if I dont watch it. In my mind breaks are a must. Its more money and more weight, but its worth it for the saftey.
