I had the purple one. What are you looking for?
Have you ever had a bipe.
If you have any questions ask away

It'll be my first bipe, I was looking for 3D type performance. Any input good or bad on this aircraft would help me out. Maybe even a review of it.

It's not a 3D plane. It is an aerobatic plane. It is a nice flying plane. What are you going to power it with.
When landing it leave alittle power on it.
Bipes like to stall on landings with out a little power left on.
I had a thunger tiger pro 46 on mine.

I have an old Enya .60 that only weighs in at 15oz and spins a 12x6 at 11,600RPM. I was looking for a .40 size bipe that can do 3D and stay under $150. But I guess I'll just be looking for another sport plane instead, my last one had a servo fail and bown out my receiver which made it crash. So I'm trying to find something "cheap" to replace the airframe with.

It really depends on what you call 3D.
This plane is a very good aerobatic plane.
I don't believe unless you get a profile there is a nitro powered 3D machine out there in that size.
A good 3D plane will harrier around at walking speed.
But if the only 3D you want to do is hover. yes she will hover. She will Knife edge, spin, loop, roll, and lots of other fun stuff
I really liked my plane and I was very sad the day she went in due to a bad clevis
