The number of man-hours that you would have invested, in order to build an airframe up to that level of quality and completion, renders the $500 for an A&P inspection essentially microscopic chicken s#[t by comparison.
If you added up the cost of an annual (condition inspection) for the next 20 years, it would still be HALF of what your labor (to build 3/4 of the aircraft up to this stage) is worth. THEN make sure to put a dollar value on being able to fly 2 or 3 years sooner than if you started building a Dragonfly kit today.
I'm sorry to sound so grumpy and stick my nose in your tailcone, and it's not my money I'm spending, but if this is a type of aircraft that you would enjoy owning and flying, then IMHO get off your a$$ and come get this one
E/AB that's not flying is not worth even a % of the raw materials. How do I know this? You can't even sell this 'masterpiece' for $1500.
So even after completion, you still have basically the value of the motor and avionics, if its a certified motor with good logs.
Please do try to say that its not true.. you still haven't sold it!! lol
