Before I started working on my design, I looked at pricing for various parts.·· I saw the propeller was $12.95 on Parallax's website which was within my project's budget.· Later, I went to Mouser and saw they have them for $25!· Typically, I see a distributor pricing parts at retail and less for volume so I was a little confused.· I also checked DigiKey, my second-source distributor, and they were $18 at DigiKey.· Is this an artifact from a recent price drop, a sale on Parallax's website,·or are these really the steady-state prices?

Thanks,
Steve

Parallax recently dropped their price from $25 to $12.95 in small quantities. The distributers may not have updated their prices to match.

Yeah, and it's only $8.03 at 1,000 pieces, any package type!

Chip, I guess the only bad part about that is it's $8,030!
