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.
