Because I wanted a foam 3d plane that's stiff (which this plane is) that I could fly in my backyard relatively slow. Also, the as3x is a plus! That will help in windy conditions!

And I got it for $280 and my dad paid $20 of that. And then I'm going to sell the battery and charger that came with it. I should get around $40 from those. So, it didn't cost all that much!

Man but still, $240, yikes... why not save that cash for something bigger? I thought you had a foamie already? Sounds like you just bought it... just to buy it. You could've tried a 3DHS 40'' Edge or something for that price as well I'd think... LOL

Well, I wanted it because I like Horizon products and my dad really wanted me to buy this plane! He likes Horizon products too! He doesn't tell me he wants me to buy a plane very often, so I thought I would make him happy! Plus, I like it!

I tried a 3DHS 40" epp edge and I didn't really like it. I think it flexed too much or something. So I sold it.

Nope! Haha. He just sometimes gets emails from places and I guess the VisionAire intrigued him!

It is a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Horizon stands behind what they sell. Hobbyking on the other hand, does not.

I had a servo fail and HK gave me a refund fast... I doubt you've ever even dealt with HK, you're just stereotyping I guess
