Unless you find a killer deal, it's going to cost around $1000 if you have zero equipment. Maybe less, maybe more, but a G seems the average.

I spend less on RC than a guy at my work spends on fishing, and fishing is boring as hell IMO!!

There is no real "cheap kit to own". They all have their strengths and weaknesses and require $$ for upkeep and maintenance. Mugen is solid, but parts are expensive. D8s are cheap initially and parts are cheaper, but imo you need more parts more often. Others may disagree, but I've owned both and this was my experience. In the end, they cost about the same to own/maintain.
