    are you having one built for you? I would suggest against it, since you won't be able to fix or upgrade it with out knowing what was done to it. this is a hobby after all, and if you have someone build it for you then what's the point?

    at any rate, battery is over priced, you can get similar one at hobby king for less, almost 1/2 price (if they are instock). if you buy the gopro3 straight from gopro, you'll save $25. you could save about $40 on buying a case from tradecraftcases.com. FPV kits can be had for less than what is being offered. and i'm sure you can search the web and find more savings per components.

    over all, you could probably save yourself $200-$300 if you did it yourself. again, you would also know how things are hooked up when you do it, so when you plan on upgrading / updating components, you won't have to pay someone else to do it for you. just my two pence.
