I wonder what the SLC traction pad is made out of? It almost looks like it's not EVA, curious if it's a new material...?

CNCed EVA like everyone else, but an expensive one!

I was just about to pull the trigger (joking) and instead of Boom!... just Oops!

Must be shortage of aluminum. Probably Mikes lab, Levitaz and Moses are realizing how late they are to “isotropic masts” game and there’s shortage at the markets now

Interesting to see the individual component pricing.
It looks like they just added extra money to each of the components except for the mast which has a "normal price".
Mast: 100
Front wing: 529
Stabilizer: 250
Fuselage: 299
Mastbase: 220

Also there is no discount for buying the whole set over the individual items unless I am missing something which is a bit weird.
