The new Glacier batteries from EP Buddy seem to be very good from what I am hearing, and Ben Fisher has said that he recommends them....

Does anyone else have a problem saying no when someone approaches you at a Fly-in with a great cash deal for one of your planes?

Another 71 slick gone.


I guess this time I can get my Motrolfly and digital servo powered Slick.........

I had someone ask about a plane I had and I turned them down as I thought someone else was going to buy it. Lesson learned...strike while the iron is hot.

So been thinkin of a 30cc gasser for a while and concluded that the 71 Slick will probably be the best option,since I love the slick so much.just a question for ya peeps,which is the best as a 1st gasser?I've really heard amazing things about the 71.
anyone maybe have any experience with the Goldwing MX2?

You absolutely can not go wrong with a 3DHS plane....The 71" Slick, the 72" Extra, or the 74" Edge in the 30CC class....if you want to jump up in size, the 87" Extra, and 89" Slicks are fantastic planes....

anything bigger than a 74 odd is too big for me now,for transport reasons.I'll be able to fit a 74 max in my car.I see the 71 is out of stock atm.what's 3dhs's turnaround time to restock?

Not exactly sure but it seemed that the electric 71's were out of stock for almost a year. They had the gas ones, but they just got the electrics back in and now the gassers are out. You will want to contact ADC Hobbystore anyway as they are the worldwide distributors for 3DHS, Rob maight actually have one in stock, never know.

I still consider the 71" yours.

The above was in relation to my 40" edge.
