Man this plane will Easily KE Spin and get into a hard one using throttle and full Down.

I've got a vid coming up in about an hour that shows a hard and fast one wrapping up. I don't remember needing much Rudder, I just get it on the side stalled, Push Down and hit the gas!

Big Vypers tumble hard. theKM scared me with his doing one in front of us.

Mine KE spins like a viscious animal! Very little rudder needed.

Finally got an opportunity tonite to unwrap my new blue 57, More disappointment, broken cowl. I just cant get a break lately on the new 3DHS shipments. Soooo, more prolonging flying the new ones. Two in a row now damaged. Fixed the last one myself as to not sound like a whiner. Frustration is beginning to set in here.

Actually this one wasnt his fault. Neatly wrapped in the undamaged box. Im not complaining as I own and fly several of 3DHS products and am very pleased with them and am currently flying 3DHS exclusively, Just frustrating sometimes. You know how us pilots are (very impatient) BUT customer service rocks!!!

Nice! Can you tell me what your setup is? Sorry I haven't been paying attention if you already said what it is.

I got the same decals, but it doesn't matter to me, as I don't care for a bunch of stickers on my plane. Sucks about the cowl though. I would build it and fly it anyway, and when the new cowl arrives, change it out.

If possible I will. Hopefully Ben and Co will help me out with a new one as Im ordering again this week (maybe toss it in the box). He may want me to ship this one back. We will see. Either way Im proceeding with the build. Doing a big AJ at the same time.
Oh and I will order vinyls for the SC. Just wondering if it was a mistake

Just got an answer back from Noll, the 330SC decals are no longer included with the kit. I don't really think the 300shp decals are a good match for this model. I like some of the after market vinyl but have a hard time spending almost a third of the cost of the air frame.

huh? thats funny if 47" decals comes as intended with a 57" airframe... i suggest get it in air, make sure you will not dumb it on first flight, make sure your equipment will not "$"%"% on you, and AFTER that you can be sure that vinyl will make your plane muuuuch nicer for a long time.... i got adc vinyl and couldnt have been happier with it...

and when i DID trash the wing on it.... im 95% sure that i asked rob to include vinyl and how much to pay for it and he included it for free!
