This post is an effort to show the differences between a good 3d kit and a value one, I am updating it almost everyday. Once I am done I will post it.
I often see pilots looking for a lower cost alternative to the big three planes. I got a lower cost model before getting an extreme flight airframe.
First up is the prince
It has all the goodies
48" Extreme Flight Extra 30 EXP
Motrofly 2820 600kv
65mg's and an 85mg on the tail
Ar8000 with telemetry
This was one of my first 3d planes but it started life as a sport setup plane.
This one has a lot of value parts in it. 49" Ebay specialYak 55m
14x7 HK prop
Orangerx with satellite
I've recently gotten back into this hobby after about a 15 year abscence. I used to fly my eagle 2 trainer and some sport planes maybe every two weeks. I saw a link last year to Daniel holman doing some crazy stuff with an extra 300, stuff that I never thought possible and I was introduced to 3d flight.
I'm by no means a good 3d flier. Rolling harriers and inverted harriers are something I am still working on and having difficulty with. Pretty much anything that requires a level linked roll i go all stupid on. Hovers are not perfect yet for me but I work on them trying to keep them straight up. Tumbles, harriers, blenders, pop tops, and KE spins are what I am decent at.
