cheaper alternative to 3d HH planes??

I am just starting to dabble into 3D. I have a Parkzone sukhio 29, which I do really do enjoy. However, I would like to find another 3d plane without all the crazy rx features. This visionaire really stood out to me. Up to this point I have only flown Horizon products so I would to still yet be able to use my spektrum tx. What other companies are out there that offer great value. I"m mainly looking for PNP and something that will take a 2200 mah 3 cell.
Thanks in advance

You can look at Hobby King planes and run Orange receivers. I don't know of what specific models, but you can probably find something over there that meets your specs.

Any of the skywing 48" planes will use that size battery.

i only have one 3D plane that takes a 2200 pack, really easy to fly, but not foam. addiction X.

if you want some 3D fun, but not kill the wallet, you should look into an EPP.

X2 on the EPP constuction!

and the Orange receivers, but I'd go with the one that has built in stabilization.

Techone Swift flies best on 1500 -1800 mah, but will also handle 2200's OK. Great flyer, especially when considering bucks spent for bang received principles. I like the kit so I can pick out my own electronics, but it's also available in an "ARF" version that includes them.

Probably because most guys here fly kit planes.

Look into the 1.2 m planes from twistedhobbies for those batteries. They're really nice complete kits ,easy to build and tough EPP .
