I have Prime from V/H and nice kit. Cost is $35.00 not bad at all. There is shipping cost. Their motors esc's/ servos are very well priced and bundle makes up for shipping big time. The others the kits are much more.

I can't tell you how much I like the 39 inch Crack Yak. Easy to hover. Very stable and fast roll rate. I also handles the wind too. Come to Joe Nall and I will let you fly it this week.

No they are not the same models with different colours. What ive seen the extra and the edge are very similiar but the yak i an complete other design. The twisted foamies are excellent. Had an edge for a long time and flown the yak from a good friend. Right now i have a Flash here(wich is an older Twisted/RC Factory bird). All flew real cool and made a lot of fun

Here my actual Flash

RC Factory Flash D (4 min 4 sec)

I love my 39" Crack yak. Makes the 32" flat wing planes feel like the indoor planes they are. I was a bit apprehensive at first, but after the maiden flight I was hooked. Perfect size and weight for flying outside in small spaces.

Hummer. Value sells them as well, but also available through Hobbyking. Hard to beat bucks spent for bang received.

I have not delt with them on phone. I have ordered about eight times over last couple of years. I got what i ordered. One servo was bad and they took care of it. You might have gotten wrong person at bad time. i did not care much about bum servo just what they would do. They fixed issue. Prices for 39" are impossible to beat. Prime kit like hummer is very nice. Lazer cut wood/ nice wheels etc. Carbon rods alone are close to what i paid for kit. o as you may as bad dealing on phone going to cost if buy something else. Crack Yak 39" is over $100.00. / V/H $35.00

Value sells at a price, and they send you what you order. What they don't have, is somebody to hold your hand while you put an order together.....

If you need a hand there, just give a shout out here for some opinions.

I do not see reason to call as go online and order. They show item in stock.
32" kit/ motor/ esc'/prop/ servos/ shipping little over $60.00. glue a few mior misc. items and battery about $70.00 for a flying 3 D model. Crack Yak kit with L/G is $75.00 just for kit. Twisted Hobbys motor is $30.00 esc similar/ servo etc. Yes maybe better cookie cutter but i'll take V/H bird at least for now.

I have several 3D profile foamies. Current favorite is the TH Inferno...if it is indoors or no wind. Will hover hands off and is a delight to fly. Also like my TH Pitts, again in light wind conditions. The TH beaver is fun and handles light wind better. For wind, I like the TH 48" SBach. The TH line is hard to beat.

My latest is a Rebel Z from http://lightrc.com/.. Very happy with the material and capabilities of this plane. The EPP is very stiff and the design allows for what I call RADICAL 3D performance.
With the recommended set up and throws this thing is amazing.

Just watch McDDD's video.
Rebel Z Unedited (7 min 1 sec)


It has found a permanent place in my mini-van.
