I have Loop and Elite and i think i am the first pilot in the States to own these amazing planes. Both are great full fuse 3D planes!
I remember asking the owner of whats the difference between profile and full fuse Epp planes. He mentioned that eventhough both are made of the same type of material, they handle completely different. He gave me a chance to try his personal planes and i soon found out that full fuse Epp flies very similar to balsa plane, only it takes several minutes to fix when needed. I'd say profile is the best for 3d beginners but if you want to experience the true 3d and dont want to deal with the time it takes to repair balsa planes, then full fuse Epp is the only way to go. Having said that and being a 3d beginner myself, i get more air time than down time out of my Elite and Loop.
Great planes and excellent service!

I'm with your sir! I met Willy over the phone few months back and it was nothing but been a good journey in this hobby. He's very knowledgeable and understanding when it come to plane setups.

Mike is one of my best friends, and I'd hate to say too many good things as one say see it as being bias He's one of the only people that I'd let build my sponsorship planes for events that I attend as a demo pilot!!

Both these guys are like brothers to me in a short time I'd much rather promote great people with integrity in this hobby!!!

just have to say that the elite is a great plane! i am very impressed with its performance and power!!!! quality of kit and its looks!!! though i have not had the opportunity of flying any of the other va-models planes i know they will perform the same if not better!!!
as dennis mentioned i was able to fly a wide array of batteries and the elite took them all!!! so far 1300 is my favorite neutral battery and the 800 is ridiculously floaty!!! long run times and high speed fun the 1800 is a blast while still maintaining the va-model float
being the first full fuse foamie i have ever flown felt just like my balsas tracks on rails!!!! anyway ill save some for the flight review and build thread check back and in about a week for the goods!!!!!
