3D plane for practice..

I'm contemplating which one to get for a cheap 3D plane.

http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store...00mm_ARF_.html

or

http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store...00mm_PNF_.html

The EPP still requires esc, motor, & servos.. while the EPO one is PNF. I'm leaning towards the EPO one and replace all the electronics to work well. I'll probably end up same $$$ anyway.

But assuming I will replace all the electronics of the EPO, will it fly as good as the 3D one?

Thanks for the replies.

i would say it would be cool to get a proven setup for the first few 3d planes. the epo plane could be rad if you replace all the stuff and mirror the 42 3DHS slick set up. but it may not as well.

the best post stall learning tool is going to be a 32inch epp plane. value hobby or twisted hobby. you can fly in the front yard and get lots of stick time. i know it is cool to fly somthing that looks like a plane and handles the wind but ya need a beater plane as well.

You might be better off with something like a Multiplex Stuntmaster. Inexpensive and comes PNP, flies awesome, made of very durable Elapor foam.

I don't know how much cheaper you can get with a VH EPP. I really like their SLick. It's a great flyer on 2s. If you want 3s you'll need a stiffer EPP like the TH standard 32's

I kinda want to try one of those. I just don't have any more room in the house for planes.

That doesn't mean I can't wreck something and open a spot, like for maybe one of these.

You mean come out that I am weird for Extras?

Yeah, that 330 is a sweet looking ride. I'll get one eventually.
