I just put what JohnyZ quoted me... he will probably lower his price if I buy drivers in bulk because I was originally just going to buy one driver. Why do you suppose that Flexdrive V5's are $30 each? This driver is essentially 3 Flexdrives in one driver and its reprogrammable.You can't really charge $80 for a laser diode. You just can't. It's probably going to work out to be $10-20 in parts AT MOST, so you can't really go about charging $60+ for man hours - how many hours do you think went into this, probably 10? Maybe 20? You can charge whatever you want, I suppose, but NO ONE will buy a driver for that much unless it's a one-off thing. Once you start producing, you can't really be charging that.
