Yeah, racie....they're on the Techone site, but NP didn't know anything about them. Must be very new. Perhaps they know of them now...and, they were most courteous I might say, but unable to help. I'll wager they are probably the leading US dealer, Tower notwithstanding, since they have the lowest prices (shipping IS high though, but sometimes ya gotta have it!), and will be the first to get it. There's other planes out there, of course, but I'm an EPP junkie and certified Techone cult zombie. Not sure why...maybe it's the fun company on this thread.

Racie- are you talking about the 3d warbirds or the HCF line from Techone?
Dan is talking abotu the 3d warbirds and I think you have the HCF line on the brain?

Found out that the videos tab on Techone site will play...gives a limited selection of models but you can see them. Don't use the ones in the individual model description, just use the generic videos tab from menu bar...clear as mud? Hoochow!

the Ranchero is fine....lol.....all smooth again.
I just got off the live chat with NP and they said the sbach I asked about is in stock so I assume the rest they have listed are also.
I didnt ask about the warbirds though....just the 3d hcf plane.

Just got done flogging the p51 in 10-12mph winds...penetrates well, too bad it doesn't have for rudder response or it would have been epic hilarity...as it was it got blown out of stall turns.

I was eyeballing the P-40 as well, I am a big WWII history buff, that guy has a great story.

so I hope you get it Dan!! I may have to wait quite a while on it, NP does have the 3d P-51 in an ARF for $119.00 which isn't bad for all the guts and if its as matched up like the 33'' P-51 it ought to be a killer!!!

The storm is over! First time my house lost power completely for the last 12 years! Fortunately the rain was light so my basement stayed dry despite the sump pump being out. My wife was laughing at me moving all my planes and batteries in a hurry with flash light.

Anyway, ordered a Heyperion Extra 330 35e before the power was out last night! It's hack of a deal for a 51" Airframe plus motor ($124 if buy separately) for a total of $170 and free shipping! So, no more new TechOne for me at this moment.

Newguy, how is your youth flying camp going? Please pm me your mailing address so I can send some motors to you. I think I have three motors in the 60W to 100W range that you might have a use for.

anyone know of a decent cheap flight simulator?
NP has a couple that are pretty cheap, didn't know if they were worth a hoot or not?

I think there's a category devoted to rc sims here on rcg somewhere (plenty of opinions too )

I've been using the free version of Clearview (SE?) - you can buy only the models and fields that you need... works for me: http://bestflightsim.com/
