    I didn't ask but it makes no difference to me, my set is ordered and is processing.

    I see. I was wondering if it had a better paint job or something, that's all.

    There are fewer E-hobby Kups than United/Generations Kups, so a lower production run w/ this paint job is probably why it's more expensive.

    I can't believe I just defended Igear

    Good point, can't believe that didn't occur to me. Don't be so hard on yourself it's not like you did something you will regret later.

    I wouldn't have thought the difference in the amount of units for each color scheme is that?

    Or are the Ehobby sets more limited than i realised?

    Yeah, I thought of that after I posted as well. This seems to be the only reason I can find.

    It must be because there will probably be less demand for the ehobby set.

    Either way, $18 for 2 heads and free shipping from overseas is still a hellava deal for a 3rd party product. I think we got spoiled with the $12 price point.

    Figured you knew something when you asked about how many of us were getting a E-hobby Kup in the other thread. Seemed to easy to do for I-gear to pass on this.

    And this comes with a screw driver as well so that works into the cost too.
