I got a 2208/34..need an airplane! HELP!

hey gang, I got my hands on a AXi 2208/34 and am trouble deciding on an airplane for it. I am looking for a 3D machine. The obvious first choice would be a ShockFlyer but I want something different. I have considered the tensor but have been told its a bit too heavy for it. I am open to suggestions and will most liely buy from what you guys tell me

There is a small field near my house and it would be nice to be able to come home after work on nice days and get some stick time. My field is a 35min drive so I always suffer from withdrawal during the work week. A small 3D Parkflyer will fix that

HELP!!

I just got the Chip Hyde Raptor from Hobby-Lobby. I only have one flight on it but so far I'm impressed. I'm not great at hovering but the Raptor is very easy to hover (relatively speaking). I have the 2208/34, 3s TP 780, apc sf 9x3.8, auw ~10oz. Hopefully some other folks will chime in with an opinion.

DiabloKid, If you decide on a Raptor I have one for sell. Very nice, straight, true, square, never crashed. Still has 4 HS 55's installed, was setup with a 2208/34. CF rod used for X wing bracing instead of Kevlar thread. Mount your motor, ESC, reciever. Stick the battery pack on and fly! How easy is that! PM me if you are interested. jbj

The 2208/34 is what the Tensor was originally flown with and made for.

I have to say the Raptor is one of the best choices, but what about the SX-3?? I have my 220834 in it now and really like it. I still like my raptor a lot too. Very easy to hover and does great blenders!
Keep'em Flying,

DIY 3D plane ?

Have you tried to down load any of the free plans ?
I just finished my Katana S and flew it today at lunch.
F3, some balsa and one CF arrow shaft for a wing spar
It will barely hover with 2S LiIon on the 2208-34
AUW was 13.3 oz
Can't wait to try it on a 3S !!!!
tried 3S after work, in the dark. Pretty hard to fly a plane a night !

Down loaded the Katana S plans from the above site, then cut foam and glued.


For EPP WingWarrior has an Edge 540 ?
