3d Profile

Hello
I am looking for a cheap 3d Profile foamy. Just something to fly around in the yard or in between the big birds. Wondering if you guys had any suggestions.
thanks
Christian

Hey Christian - check us out at Griffwerks.com - we have the most prefabricated kits available at a reasonable price. Plus if you order a complete kit with electronics, we are just starting a special where we will include a free bottle of Foam Tac! (while supplies last) - Let me know if you have any questions.

HK Reaktor, doesnt need much room to fly , light so its hard to break.

or EPO Handyman. Not hardcore 3D, and is hollow fuselage, but is fantastic build quality and handles the wind much better than my EPP foamies

Valuehobby has some very inexpensive foamies. I don't have one but check out the thread in this forum.

No such thing as overpowered

I have the HK Reaktor and it flies really well. However, as it is made from EPP it can be heavier than other profile models which might make flying it in small spaces difficult.

If you want something lighter then go for something like the HK Neptune

However, the Neptune is a more advanced model and made from Depron so much less forgiving than the Reaktor.

Have a look at one of these from NitroPlanes:

Flies great, super durable, and for $89.00 it comes with everything except the RX. Awesome bang for your buck!

Interested in the reaktor. Did you guys just buy the recommended electronics that hk has on their site? or what did you guys put in it? Are those $3 servos any good?
