*lol*

Well if you're talking balsa then I have the following:

3DHS 47" Velox Revolution
3DHS 46" Vyper
3DHS 48" VR-1
3DHS 41" Edge
I'm currently building a 3DHS Extra SHP V3
And as you know I just pre-ordered a 3DHS 42" AJ Slick


EF Edge 540T EXP (plus a spare kit NIB)
EF MXS EXP
In the next few day's I'll order an EF Extra 300 EXP.

I used to own a PA Extra 260 but I broke it and gave it to nac to repair. He lets me fly it from time to time. He fitted recently SFGs to the plane and it totally transformed it.
I used to own a PA Ultimate AMR but I sold it before I broke it .

If you're including foam planes in your query, well .... ummm ...... maybe a couple of dozen.. cough .... maybe a few more ...... cough....

I would be interested in your comparison between the 3DHS VR-1 and the EF MXS EXP. I was planning on the VR-1 and have all the equipment, but I have been looking and considering the EXP. They seem to have similiar characteristics, and I like the idea of the cf in the EXP. I am currently flying the heck out of my 3DHS 41" Edge and having a ball, so I figured the VR-1 would be the logical next step.

Landing gear

We had a great fly today. It was sunny but very windy, which made it lots of fun. The MXS flew very well with my Turnigy setup and my nanotech 2.65 batteries gives me a flight time of around 7 minutes.

Unfortunately on my last landing, the gear snapped on one leg.
On close inspection I can see that the other leg was starting to break in the same place. I have only taken it out a few times and I didn't think my landings have been hard. Nothing else on the plane is damaged, it just snapped off when it landed and the plane just stopped.
Interesting that groovejet's landing gear on his MXS is broken as well, although that was on an unintended contact with the ground

As I don't have a replacement I have used some HC gear that I had sitting around for now.
I'll have to think about what to do long term as I don't want to have to keep repairing landing gear. I am hoping that it is just an isolated case as I intend to order another EF plane shortly.

Nope. The park that we flew at is well kept and cut low. I have been coming in slow and level. Although it was very windy which makes it a bit harder to get it down smoothly.

Just curious, but did those servo arms come in the kit? I figured since the Edge was perfect with the standard Hi Tech arm, the MXS would probably be too.

Are your aileron end points maxxed, and what kind of roll rate do you get?

I have the end points on my DX7 set to around 120. Also I am not even using the outer hole on the arms; second hole in from the end.

I am very happy with the role rate.
