Yikes! Scary mentality; do you have children in your household?

How so? I go to the range and enjoy a day of shooting. I enjoy reloading ammo to make more precise hand made ammunition. I would call myself a professional competitor level shooter (however, you don't need to be one to be a part of this hobby)

No kids in the house, and ha ing kids doesn't mean I will go sell all my guns. Just because I have them doesn't make it a hazardous environment. All are properly taken care of.

Anyways, I really don't wanna turn this into a gun thread now

I just looked at the electric shock, probably better off with that as a starter. It's just that can't stand those single plane designs. I would really prefer an actual fuselage. But I think learning is made much easier on those 2D style fuselages.

I am not here to talk guns either; but planes (like guns) are inherently dangerous and IMO should not be considered toys.

It's just what I call them bud. I also have a gaming rig for computer stuff. That's my toy as well. So is my iPod. And my corvette. All my toys

It's like I call my lady 'baby' she is most def not a baby. Just what I call her.

Consider it a nickname I guess.

They aren't toys, a toy is the stuff they sell at the toy aisle at walmart. It's just what I call them.

Anyways...

With lowered ratios and expo would you guys consider this something comparable to the edge maybe?

Would this be a good plane to learn 3D in?

Not anytime soon. I'm still having too much fun with scale planes, bit probaly a toy for '12 (great bday gift for April!)

That plane looks decent at least. It's like half and half. Lol

Yes Addiction X or if size is a concern then Addiction. I would probably choose these over the Electric Shock. Addiction X is by far the easiest to fly and 3d.

That makes far more sense to me; I think we are on the same page...

Thanks beave; all your informative input throughout this thread has been very much appreciated.



Razor~ to answer your question, I would have to agree with Higcell and Mr. K in that I believe the Addiction X would give you the best platform to learn 3D on.

I like the size of that addiction X.

is the addiction and and the X pretty much similar in flight, except the size?

I do like bigger stuff.

Reg. 4S..forget it....there is really too much power for the plane...it's not really fun!

Hi Alvin,

thanks for the tip. However we have used ball-links on both ends of the linkage so that is not it unfortunately.

The Addiction is easy to 3d, the Addiction X is ridiculously easy to 3d. If you can the Addy X is the way to go.

Alvin you should allow yourself more time on the sticks with the 4s setup.

As Cuba said, correctly, this plane has tons of potential to be explored. That requires a little more time to get use to.

In fact the Bandit (even though a 50" plane) offers wider flight envelope than many 50cc planes out there! It is a very capable plane and does fly differently on 3s compared to 4s but before making a final decision (if at all as i fly and will keep on flying both setups) allow yourself extra time getting use to both otherwise you will miss some of the flight envelope this plane has to offer.

For me, going super fast and precise aerobatics is a joy ride that shouldn’t be skipped

My first PA plane was the Addiction, then the AMR, then Adx and now ive just built my first e-shock. Im glad I did them in that order but if could do it again knowing what I know now.....ADX would be my first choice its the best all round plane to do 3d.
