I like the Carden Edition Extra http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...sm-rtf-HAN4625

I like the fact that H9 is carried by my LHS so if they keep coming out with good aerobatic/3D planes i'll actually buy some of their planes. It would save me over $200 on shipping so getting it local cancels out the higher price compared to other manufactures.

This morning I disconnected the RIGHT aileron servo and bound the receiver. The LEFT servo functioned properly! Then I connected a spare servo to the RIGHT side and BOTH servos functioned properly.
So, I think we may have nailed it. Thank you wjs. I'll give an update when I get the new servo from HH.
Thank you to everyone who has tried to help me with this problem.

That is great news Jimmy. Glad you have it sorted now. I hope to get in air with it this week also. :-)

$300 is a lot of money for a foam airplane guys, don't get me wrong I have a ton of eflite and parkzone planes and blade helis, but any time I drop $300 I want to make sure I've done the homework...

Here's another video by the same pilot.....me! The club field has a rule that you can't fly any closer than the first white runway edge line, so I might find another location to shoot a more up close and personal video

I think the price is reasonable. In the UK the AR635 is 70. A decent outrunner and ESC has got to be around 80 and then there are 4 digital servos. We are up to the bulk of the 200 price, never mind that there is an airframe which has been designed by Quique to do all sorts of wonderful stuff and it's (almost) fully assembled.

I am happy with my purchase and will be happier still if the wind would stop blowing .. forecast strong for at least another week

You can sure fly that thing. Bet it winds em up tearing up the white line like that too Have you got a decent blender, flat spin or knife edge spin out of it yet?

Not a fanboy here, everything else I have is balsa 3DHS and Extreme Flight stuff but I got this to fly close to home on rough fields.

I like it, its proven tough to me after my 2 cartwheels while doing rolling harriers. Has good performance with enough power for 3D and good pullouts but its not a rocket ship like my other planes. This is my "practice" plane for low and slow 3D but has proven to also be able to do more high-speed dramatic moves also.

The only beef I had was the elevator servo horn was flexing and did not offer enough throw for good flat spins and knife edge spins so I swapped it out for an industrial grade 3D carbon one and have been flying it like that since.

In all honesty I was not going to buy the plane, wanted the receiver but needed to upgrade my EF 48'' Edge to all digital servos to put it in and after going over the cost I just got the plane with everything. Besides the Edge would not allow rough field takeoffs.

Overall the plane is the only thing I am flying right now with the cold weather I can run down to the school down the street and get a quick few flights before my fingers go numb.

Its held up fine so far, wish it had ball-link connectors on the control rods but I can change them out sometime.

Hope this helps some in your decision making

Hi Tom, yes there is some good reviews out there. Here is mine and most comments seem to agree with what i presented, so i presume it's a good review
