3DHS 41'' Edge Maiden Flights: Fast, Slow, High, Low, Tricks and Awesomeness! (5 min 27 sec)


Episode 87 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

Personally I think that it's very nice quality but flies OK... in my opinion. I'm not a hater of 3DHS but I've only flown foam and this just doesn't feel right, I'm just not really happy that I spent so, so, so much money on this.

Hit your face on the like button, and comment if you can hear the kid that was talking to me and watching me fly the plane. He said something about the Red Baron...? Not sure.

See him at about 2:18 on takeoff.

RCFS#76: Schwing - New Prop and Battery in LOTS of WIND

RCFS#76: Schwing - New Prop and Battery in LOTS of WIND (2 min 6 sec)


Episode 76 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

The Schwing has a new propeller (8x4 sport instead of 8x3.8 slow-fly) and a new battery generously donated to the RCFS by baddb1 on RC Groups, who also gave me the motor and ESC for the Schwing. So the Schwing is really half his, LOL!

Flies great but the wind certainly was messing things up. No crashes on this flight though!
