Dark Side Models X-3D depron jet

I have finally gotten around to doing the build on the X-3D jet, the X-3D is very maneuverable and a BLAST to fly! its very stable in harrier. I think a video or two says it all:

A quick look:

Wing Span: 24"
Weight:3-5oz
motor:2200kv 2 cell outrunner
ESC:6 amp
Battery:350-450mah
Servo(s)4-6g

My setup
Motor:Hyperion hp-z1705(about the same as a hacker a-10-13s)
ESC:thunderbird6
Servo(s):JR S-185's
battery:nanotech 350mah 2s

Full kits come with:
All foam parts
All carbon necessary
Heat shrink
Music wire for Z bends
CNC cut control horns and motor mount

price: Discontinued

Short kits(all foam parts)$20

All kits come pre-beveled

I balance My model just behind the prop, But I recommend starting with it just in front of the prop until you get the feel for the model.

For throws I run aprox 45 degree's with 90% expo.

If you got a kit off of me in TX this year and have questions about the build please don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks for looking. more video&pic's coming soon!
