How to get in touch with 3DHS

1.We have a business phone at 1-830-990-6978. It is very busy. This busy-ness happens because a lot of people want to talk to us. Until I find more people who really understand model aircraft construction and tuning, only Tyler and myself answer this phone. It stays busy 100% of the time on Mondays and Tuesdays. Wednesday is about 50%. Thursday and Friday are 20% or less.

2.We have 4 email addresses.


Our four email addresses are:

Ben@3dhobbyshop.com

Arron@3dhobbyshop.com

Tyler@3dhobbyshop.com

Info@3Dhobbyshop.com


These are regular email addresses. We all answer our personal emails and we sweep the "info" box on a 24 hr. cycle when we are in the office. You don't have to do anything in particular to email us, just make sure you use one of the above addresses. It's just email.

If you don't receive a response to an email, of course try again, but 2 unanswered means something is technically wrong, for certain. Usually this is caused by your domain being picked up by our spam-control program (if your email happened to be dude@adultexcitement.com I can guarantee I won't see it.) This is how email works. I didn't invent it, I just use it.

3.We're on RCGroups. All the time. I have 21,000+ posts. I am not hard to find. I answer over 100 private messages per day. I have to dump my pm box every day or it will overflow. TheKM and Sukhoi26MX are both 3DHS staff members, and

Joe Smith
ProBroAndy
IPSMotors
FirefighterFSF
BoneDoc
RCDrum
XLBMXER
Wedgewing
...are our team pilots and support crew members who frequent RCgroups.


Some of our other team pilots and other support crew members frequent other sites and forums.

4.We have a customer response system on our website. You can send us a message and we'll respond to it within the website.

5.We announce travel days on our homepage. We also announce any service outages on our homepage. I also post them in here.

that's how to contact us.




Guy's I got a PM from RCGroups Tech Support asking me to create a "Part 3" of the Addicts thread because Part 2 is getting so big it's affecting their servers.

So here's part 3 - let's see how long before we have to start part 4

Remember - The Addicts thread was created as a place where us 3DHS Addicts can come and hang out and talk just about anything.

There are three rules to this thread

1. No politics -if you want to talk about politics, go to the LTUP thread

2. No Topics - While there are no specific topics, our discussions mostly relate to the one thing that unites us and that's our addiction to this hobby and 3DHS Planes. (guess that's two things) And while there isn't any official topic I dont agree with calling this a BS thread

For example, as Doc mentioned, several of us have had health issues - we wouldn't necessarily go to the Velox thread and post about needing surgery but it's totally appropriate here. How does Doc needing surgery relate to the Addicts thread? Well it's due to the fact that because we both enjoy 3DHS planes and post on RCG that Doc and I became friends. Heck he even gave me a big hug last time I saw him As with all my friends I want to know if a friend is facing something serious like surgery. Same thing goes for flight reports, crashes, successes and failures - that's the kind of stuff I want to know about my friends. Lets face it, most all the people that post on this thread are friends and that is due in part because of our addiction to 3DHS planes.

3. Keep it friendly -- Now let me clarify the "Keep it friendly" rule of this thread. Keeping it friendly is more than NOT calling people names or trolling, it means that we should treat each other with respect and try to build each other up instead of tearing each other down. Also Keeping it friendly means we should try our best not be annoying to others.

Checking in!

I'm not sure I could pick a favorite, but currently I'm really enjoying the 57" Extra SC because of the way it tumbles and knife edges and the 70" Slick because it flies "big" and it's the biggest plane I have.

You mean besides all of them?

I think anyone who has ever had an Extra SHP will always have a soft spot for that plane. For me, though, the Extra SR was the one that made things happen and opened a lot of doors for me
