Quadcopter Shootout 2 – Price
Some consumers shop by quality, some by performance, some by looks, others go by just one factor- price. While price may or may not be a good indicator of quality, it can make or break the buying decision for some consumers.
How did we judge our price category? We searched around the web to determine a “normal” street price. That may have been MAP (minimum advertised price) for some, or it may be the most common, non-sale, price for the quad. We did not include special sales, blow-out, or overseas pricing, we went with the actual price that you are most likely to pay for the product. Also, we only used pricing for ready to fly with transmitter included for all the quads.
Just like in golf, the lower the score, the better.
|1||Ethos QX 130||$99|

The winner of our price category was the Ares Ethos 130 coming in with a street price of just $99. Close on its heals was the Align M424, then there was a big jump for the third place LaTrax at $149. The most expensive of the group was the Blade 180 at $179.
