It has to be 100% American or they will sue you. So if a brushless motor is made all in the US except for a German bearing or Chinese sensor wire connector, you can't call it "Made in the USA".

We can actually trace the rise of China back to greedy Americans...

So, for those anti-China Americans, they only have themselves to blame...

You need to re-study your American history especially on Black slavery...

The Chinese might be working in a sweatshop but they are no slave...

Unfortunately you are in the minority. Most people are more than happy to pay much less for a Chinese clone of a more expensive product. Just check out the Go and Alpha engine threads.

So, why aren't American manufacturers staying in America and creating more jobs? It all boils down to dollars and cents...

Sean,

Look at it this way, the hobby is way more affordable with all these "clones", without them I doubt many of us can afford this hobby to start with.

As more and more people get into the hobby via affordable "clones", the market gets bigger and inevitably some will upgrade to more expensive brands like RB and Nova, the spin off is huge if people can take it with a positive frame of mind...
