Thanks you guys! I've been working on a controller cost spreadsheet. It will depend on how the parts are ordered. It's sort of hard to explain. If a small group of people order the parts at the same time to the same destination, and then they get mailed from that location, you pay for one whopper load to be shipped and then middle man handling (but that's not that tough I bet! Maybe divvy out everything and then put them in a bunch of separate boxes, and then shipping to each house. The rather large benefit of this is that you can save between 10% and 50% on the price of components from digikey (and the heat sinks).
