What's a good plane to learn 3Do flying?

I've been wanting to start learning 3d flying. I've been thinking about the park zone visionair, or extreme flight 48" extra 300. I have a balsa suqoix wich flies great not sure if I'll go back to foam ha, but I've been trying with that. Any suggestions would be awesome!

Thanks!
Dusty

Yep, that is yours truly LOL. As for what to learn first, i suggest Knife edge flight. Then 4-point rolls, then slow rolls. Also harrier flight. The 4 points and slow rolls will get you used to using your rudder. Also be sure to cheack out this thread http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...68864&page=173.

32'' epp foamies fly good, and are vary durable. Really are the best planes to learn 3D with. Good luck.

If you want to learn 3D and not bust up a balsa plane the EPP planes are the way to go. Twisted Hobbies makes some nice 39-48'' ones and so does Skywing.
The profile type will be lighter and feel bigger than they are. The foam can be repaired and back in the air in no time. The 39''epp profiles from RC-Factory / Twisted Hobbies are great all around.

+1 on the RC-Factory 39" planes. I wore out the Edge and am now enjoying the Extra, which seems the better of the two.

With epp foam it is best to use welders glue and not CA. CA is a brittle glue, where welders is flexible. However the skywing plane I linked comes with the glue needed.

So I'm thinking twisted hobbies extra 330 or watts 540t. Any thoughts? I'll have to try the welders glue on the next repair hopefully not to soon! Haha
