Then give you a full review and as much feedback on how it came together and ran. You could use that as a full testimonial review to help you sell them. Also it would tell you if your perception of building it in your mind is really the same as an end user, who has never built one (a working one).
So how about that, I think its a good idea.... I would be willing to even throw in a few dollars for shipping. E-mail me if you are interested. :D

The real problem is finding that audience. Maybe see if an RC distributor would carry it, or ads in the back of Popular Mechanics or something.
Otherwise, do you know many visitors to Jetzilla a: are not "do it yourself designer/builders" or b: unsophisticated enough to buy just because you say it's good?
It's much harder to pull off creating a market for what you love, versus creating a product for an identified market need.
All that being said, it's just got to be hard to sell any motor with only a pound or two of thrust.

All you're saving is the minor price difference of shipping the front end vs. shipping the entire thing, at the cost of limiting your market to people who can apparently weld thin metal but not very much.
