I think it has helped the consumer for the simple fact that the big brand name well known companies are reducing prices now because of all the competition. As a racer I can now get the original products for close to the same price as all the copies and imitations. that being said, I have encountered a few copies and imitations that I prefer over the original However, I am sure all the Losi racers are happy that the 2.0 buggy is now $400..I am sure that the success of the Agama A8 had allot to do with that.

I think that in most markets increased competition is always a good thing because it forces companies to innovate ways that can allow them to give the customer more value. However, in the current market that is full of companies that have no problem with copying other businesses product designs and manufacturing them with less quality at a cheaper price, the consumers do not win. The problem is that when the actual innovators of the industry start to loose market share to the counterfeiters and copy cats, they have less of a chance of staying in business. I watched this happen in the automotive aftermarket industry and hopefully wont see it happy in the RC industry.

I have spent the last 20 years in wholesale and retail and I can say that the companies with innovation, integrity, strong Values, good marketing, solid financial backing, and adaptability always survive and remain successful. Yes it is sad that there are companies that profit from other peoples hard work, but without a combination of all of the above they usually disappear over time. Kinda like life, business is a survival of the fittest so to speak.
