I haven't been in the hobby long and own 3 3DHS planes and have waited a long time for parts.. And every time I hear any talk about 3DHS at my field I have to warn the pilots about the fact that things don't look good for 3DHS as far as spare parts go..

Call them. I know two friends who called and recieved spare parts not listed on the site in the past month.

I have owned over a dozen 3dhs planes (have 8 currently) and am pretty disappointed to read this stuff. I am always bragging about how great their planes and service are based on my past experiences.

I finally perfected the Snap-to-lose Canopy today.

The Canopy latch came unglued and the Canopy hit the right wing on the way through the snap roll and put a couple of holes in the covering, noting a couple of patches won't fix though.

It looked impressive, and I was a little worried about landing but all ended well.
