First of all I am not a customer of Value Hobby as I do not live in US and shipping is out of the question to me.

What I would like to say is that in last years RC has become far more affordable than it had been in the past.

Radios were near a months wages .... today - you can get a reasonable radio for equivalent of 2 hours labour on car service !! If you want good all singing dancing radio - its no longer mortgage the wallet !

Models themselves have come a long way with Laser and CNC production providing quick / cheaper more accurate methods to throw out the boxes of models !!

Servo's ... motors .... have been revolutionised by advent of coreless and brushless motors ... which are not only far more efficient than the old brushed and cored motors - but also because of the sheer market numbers sold - cheaper to produce. Todays 9gr servo is literally capable of and FASTER than the old standard servo of years past.

Todays RC is a far cry from the RC I remember back in 60 - 70 - 80's .....

Remains to be seen what final impact of CV19 is going to be ....
