Well, $400 is too rich for me. I think they will quickly saturate the market at that price. Then I would expect them in a year or two to drop the price to that of the Swift which is currently about 65 GBP in UK, making some cosmetic change like elimination the hand stitching to justify the price reduction. If not I'll make do with my 60's vintage Wrights equivalent of the Swallow.
