I just checked with my local supplier of metal. I want to use 2"x2" x 1/4 wall
aluminum 6061 box tube for the backbone of my heli project. They want $180.77 for a 24' piece(the shortest they have...no drops) Online with Metal Depot it would be about $97 more. How do these prices sound to you guys?
I know aluminum is high but WOW!! Any feedback welcome.
