Its time to move to the next level. I hope Im not making the jump too soon, but I've ordered a 3D Hobby Shop Extra 300 SHP from Jeff at http://www.plane-funrc.com/. Many thanks to Jeff for all his help and guidance as I made the decision.

This plane promises to be both a fantastic sport flyer, as well as a platform to learn more aggressive aerobatics, including 3D. The configuration will be:
  • Red 3DHS Extra 300 SHP
  • 3DHS Omega 103 motor
  • Airboss 45 ESC
  • HITEC HS65MG Servos
  • APC 13x6.5 5E Propeller
  • Spektrum AR6210 RX
  • My existing Spektrum DX6i TX

Im expecting to pick up the ARF kit on March 4, and hopefully complete the build and maiden over the weekend. Its a visually stunning plane. I hope I can keep it that way, and avoid a conversion to balsa splinters.

Update: Build is complete, trim, CG, and taxi test complete, preparing for maiden hopefully tomorrow (weather permitting). I cant wait to fly this plane! The build log is mostly ready to go, will upload once I have added the maiden report.
