Since 3dhs has discontinued the baby O. It looks like the Super Vyper is the way to go.

That Oasis is tempting though. Nice price that's for sure. Looks pretty good too.

We were hoping to have them on the 11th when other things were coming, but it looks like they were still in production overseas, so guess is about 4-6 weeks +/-

Sincerely,

Don't hold your breathe. Obviously it's a 3DHS plane and ADC is just a supplier. If 3DHS is saying they are not coming back then I'd go with that. I guess there is always the possibility whoever answered me at 3DHS didn't know what they were talking about. I doubt it though.

I have a new in box 47" osiris in blue that I am going to sell. Too many planes, too little time, and I need new tools. It's brand new, I took the fuse out of the plastic once to take pics of the motor box for another forum member. I'm looking for $210 shipped. Figured I'd post here before the classifieds. Please post here AND PM me if you want it.

That`s bummer...Its a sweet flying plane. That must have been a close out price not a F3A discount..

Since 3DHS is discontinuing the 47" Osiris it is time to find and alternative.

Yeah, the 47" is done. I checked with them today...He said they will do the best they can with parts for the next year or so...The obvious replacement for the 47" is http://www.extremeflightrc.com/html/vanquishmkII.html

I`m sure it flys just as good and all the electronics swap over...I think it looks better..He did say they weren`t stopping production on the 62" and its still going.. I wouldn`t be surprised to see 3DHS bring out a low cost 2M F3A plane..Extreme Flight already has one..If you call 650.00 cheap...I guess for a 2 meter it is..

Where have they all gone?

It seems that the trend is towards a little larger pattern ship, Fliton built some very good pattern ships, Light and they flew well. The 30 size Element had a very striking covering job. It's no longer available. The Fliton Prodigy was a little smaller, A 10e size, I retired mine and it's still hanging in the garage. I also retired my Hyperion Helios 10e, 25e, and My Extreme Flight Version 1 Vanquish.

I'm still flying a Super Taiji, 40 (52" WingSpan) and the 62" and 47" Osiris.

There's several Foam Pattern Ships that are available, in the 54" WingSpan range.They won't break the bank either as there're both under $70.00 ea. First there's the Rainbow A388, (one of my flying buddies has one of these) And secondly the Firenza F3A which, to me is just a copy of the RainBow. altho the Firenza is about $8.00 less expensive than the Rainbow. There's also a 50" Sequence which is a decent flying pattern plane. So there are some mid-size pattern planes available.

I was over joyed when 3dhs announced that they were coming out with a smaller pattern plane after the 62" Osiris, I was hoping it would be in the 52" to 54" range, But they went with the 47" Osiris. It's a decent flying pattern plane and I really enjoy flying mine, So I doubt that it will become a hanger Queen anytime soon.

I realize that in the scheme of things, That small or mid size pattern planes arn't a great part of the RC market. Not a lot of profit to be made. So, I commend the company's that have tried to provide a plane that only appeals to a very small part of the RC market. Hopefully, They will continue to do so.

I agree, not a big market, I love my baby O and might get the 62", but you can tell it is a small part of the business, plus they fly so good and land so easy you tend to never crash and thus never need spare parts.

there is the new splendor
