That's what it said, when I clicked on the 47" Osiris, Both the Red and the Blue versions. "Not for sale" The only way to know for sure, Is to send Ben a e-mail at 3DHS Or give him a call.

I don`t think they are discontinued...They had them on sale for 160.00 and I`m pretty sure they are just out of stock...That plane sells pretty well from what I read...I`m not sure Ben is there anymore...Noll is who I have been dealing with lately..Don`t know what the deal is??

ive asked this question before on a different model and "not for sale" doesn't mean discontinued, it sorta means they cant give us an exact date when they are gonna be built and shipped. i think i remember someone saying if they left it saying "back-order" it would allow us to place an order for it, and they didn't want that to happen when they cant give us an eta on the airframes,
that's just my opinion on things

mazjag,
Why don't you think that Ben is there anymore? He's the owner of 3DHS. Did he sell the business?

Did you actually READ the text that was posted?

There is NOTHING in there that says he is less involved.

Robert, I can read... thanks...Like I said I have no idea, but if you read the first comment someone ask if he is going back to working long hours..Like I said nobody named Ben has helped me, answered a phone, an email or anything...Do you actually know or are you just trying to bust balls?

I haven't purchased any planes from 3DHS since I bought my 62" Osiris. I do know that the 3DHS has moved from Texas. But I wasn't aware that Ben isn't as involved in the company as he once was.

Still if someone wants to know about the status of a airplane, They should call or e-mail 3DHS and talk to whoever answers the phone, about it.

I'm still waiting, like many others for the release of the 2m Osiris.

No I'm not busting balls. I'm just trying to point out that rumors start when there is no basis for it. If you go back and actually read the article it is saying he was working at least 80 hours a week starting out. He travels to China, shows etc. on top of that. I assume based off all their planes I see flying that they are doing pretty "o.k." which would mean he can pass off more work to his employees and work less hours?

I ordered a plane from them on Wednesday. It was shipped the same day and I just got it today.

Why would you expect the owner of a busy company to help you all the time? That is what employees are hired for.

I could honestly care less either way...So I wouldn`t know anything about rumors. He may still own the company .I know that there is a castle creations ad with Chris Hinson of Extreme flight and Noll Smith of 3dhs and nobody named Ben.. I`m not going back and forth about something so stupid anymore if you don`t mind..Jason

Esprit and ADC will have them in 3 +/- weeks

Rudy,

At this time we have no ETA of restock of the 47" Osiris. That model may be available elsewhere in the future.

Regards,

3DHS

The guy who is supposedly Noll in that ad is actually Ben. I don't know why they have Ben in the picture and call him Noll, maybe they need a new editor.
