Help!
Help me make my mind up for me!

Okay, I think my head is getting ready to explode! I'm looking to get a new airframe to go with some gear I already have, but I can't seem to narrow it down to one.......so here's where I need the help.

Here's what I got to work with:

Reaper GR60
CC Ice 100
3x HS-225MGs
2x HS-5245MGs
Flightmax 4S 4000 20C
Futaba R617FS

Planes I'm looking at are:
3DHS 57" Sukhoi
3DHS 57" Extra 330SC
3DHS 55" Edge
EF 58" Extra 300


I'm open to recommendation that may not be listed.......also, if there are any on the new ones on the horizon that I haven't heard about, let me know.

Thanks,

Jay

3DHS 57" SC would be a perfect fit for your gear. Power would be excellent on 4s!!

3DHS 55" Edge, biased towards 3D.
3DHS 57" Sukhoi, biased towards sport.

3DHS 57" Extra 330SC is the 55SHP replacement, Good all around, I would snap it up in a heartbeat!

Hmmm, this is a timely thread... I'm in exactly the same situation as the Safety Hawk. I picked up a GR60 on sale last week (as I suspect many have). I see the 57" SC is the unanimous choice. The GR60 is too much motor for the 55" Edge?? I have both, the 47" Edge, and 47" 300SR, both powered with GR35s. I love them both... The SR so much I bought a spare, since they're no longer available. If they decide to drop the Edge I may buy TWO more! Markus, why do you say the 57" Suk is biased toward Sport? The one plane I don't have in my collection is a round cowl... I was leaning that way. Though I didn't like the need for a second motor box for the electric motor on that one. Hmmmm (again), wish I could just buy all three. My wife would S! So it's the SC.... Red or yellow??

Opps......I freed up some space now. I got one pm from you.

Edit: I stand corrected. After freeing some space another PM showed up.

My understanding with the Suk is that it requires a bit more finesse to 3d well, but it will 3d with the best of them......however, take that with a grain of salt as I've never flown the Sukhoi.
