I haven't heard anything about them maintaining the Texas warehouse.

The only distributors for 3DHS (that I know of) are currently listed on their home page.

The Texas thing is going away as far as I know. In talking with rob at ADC, he is actually trying to be a parts supplier for 3DHS as well and let 3DHS handle the planes. But as far as I have heard, PA is where it will all be at

They have espiritmodels and adchobbystore.com. Basically the same prices as buying direct but the customer incentive plans are different at each shop.

I thought I was pretty lucky to find a hacker A30-10XL on RCU. The guy accepted my offer of $55 shipped so I was really stoked. Yesterday I still hadn't received a shipping notice (I paid on Sat) so I wrote him a complaint about not being notified about it being shipped and asking for tracking info if it had. He apologized and said he would have it out that night. I just got a tracking number a half hour ago.

Now I am wondering if all the other stuff he said about it will turn out bad. I'm halfway expecting to get a turnigy or something

I think you would be better off buying the kit for $45 and building it yourself:

I had one. It is a sport plane. Fixed wing so you have to allow for that in transportation. Covered in shelf paper (I don't know what else to call it, you peel the back and stick it on). Not a lot of extra room in it.

Just a nice sport model but if you break it, it is not that easy to repair.

Kind of the same as an Uproar.

I would not really recommend it to anyone. There are better, updated planes around. Like a T-W-I-S-T.

Thanks guys,
after he read the review he decided against it....

I think he needs to stay with the TT40, a profile, or stay with his 3DHS Velox

What size is his Velox?

If he wants to sell that, make sure you give us first crack at it!
