I'm aware. Crashed my first jet because I lost range thing the parkflyer RX was full range. I kno it's a parkflyer. I put in there because I figuired that since it was a 3D plane, it would be flown relatively close. And I already looked at the crack yak for 3D, but 200 is just too much for some flat foam to me. If I could drop it to like $120 somehow, than I would have it after I get the 300x...

Who mentioned the Crack Yak? I didn't say anything about it LOL and I personally wouldn't recommend it, you can get the same performance from a FancyFoam (.com) model for $120, definitely.

Getting back into 3D is awesome BTW - it's a lot of fun and you get to improve each time you fly.

Well, helis don't have to be flown forward all the time... You can fly a 700 in your bedroom (really stupid idea, but u get my point.) they are extremely agile and never need to move forward to achieve flight.

LOL dude you have a lot of planes already to fly. BTW nice flying with the 48 in your front yard.... that was a cool video on your channel.

I think you should be happy that you have huge 3DHS planes and good quality equipment laying around. Why get a foamie when you have the cash to buy larger anyways?

Foamies are a lot of fun though...

2nd line kinda contradicted the first but anyways a good foamie will do pretty much anything a big plane like my 48 or 72 will do. so if i get a good indoor foamy (the one i have sucks g-nads. hk lied about it doing 3d and im not happy about it) but i can practice stuff like with the bigger planes.

This is him:

SAB Goblin 630 (3 min 37 sec)


He also has a 540, a 770 and a 700. And a gaui NX4 along with like 500 billion other helis.

Yeah IDK...
I've been reading around those HK balsa 3D models too lately, it looks like QC has improved a little bit, there aren't many complaints about them from what I've seen. That could be an option for Nick if he's on a budget. A 3DHS 57 is easily costing $600.

just make sure if he does get a 3DHK balsa 3d'er that he doset get one of the 3dhs clones. the guys over on the fly low thread will never forgive him.

Drop the conversation about 3DHK right now because we don't need to get in that argument again. It's an option for Nick if he wants too. Otherwise it may be difficult to raise $600!

Yeah, but even though the 57 is expensive, it I would cost lest if over time if it has a good reliable setup vs. a unknown setup that could fail from the 3DHK Planes.
