the retail is 100 bucks, and this guy on a howard forum is looking for 45~50 bucks. so I guess if we come up with some numbers im sure we could get it for at least 35~40.

40 bucks is nothing, its just one night out dinner and a movie.

I was looking into importing a skid of these from China and renting a kiosk in a mall to sell them. They cost $4/ea when bought in large enough quantities.

I missed my "window" of opportunity (Christmas rush). By the time I start to import these (If I decide to), the market will already be saturated here. I woulda sold them for $45.98/ea.

my dads friend has a real micro helicopter. costs about 1000$, but its a real helicopter and flies just like a real helicopter..

this replica toy is stupid.... i bet it doesn't have enough stability to fly outside, a little gust of win will topple it over.. i also think that is has a very slow forward motion - so if you want a toy just for indoors i guess this is okay, but outside flight is where its at.

All things aside, i'd be interested in it for farting around the house (group buy only).

Count me in for 1.
