No, not really. The basis of the revolution is a controller already
built, with an accessible and easy to install tool chain, and a
community of interest. Being able to build your own controller isn't
a common focus of that community.
Pricing is set by economies of scale in production. banggood.com has
some populated PCBs from $3 or so. Buying bare PCBs and parts won't
get you that kind of pricing.

Not the sort of friend I'd like. ;-) "Here, try this, but you have
to build it first."
