the 87 is silky smooth. Used it for IMAC competition this year running a DA-60. Absolutely fantastic 50cc size plane.

On mine, I needed the long arms to get max throw on the rudder and elevator.

Hs-65mg with dx8 at 150 throws, yep you need the longer arm for the rudder to get full deflection

Wow surprised you like it more than the 71" Slick. If and when you can do it "big daddy 87" will definitely top your list then.

I love the slick too, but it took me longer to feel comfortable with it. I was there on the 3rd flight with the shp. I feel better down low with a cheaper airframe too, and can get out of trouble faster with the smaller plane.

Well, after a few more flights on the shp, it is a blast to fly, but I came to my senses - the Slick 71 is better at low and slow, and hover. I was initially impressed with the way the SHP flies big during high energy extreme aerobatics, esp. for a smaller plane.

Maiden went pretty good, but I think I'm tail heavy even with the battery all the way forwards, still wanted to climb inverted, I went with the omega 103g, but did not read the manual and thus did not use the spacers for the motor. It always takes me a while to dial in a new airframe, but I think I'll like it.

Built my first 3DSH plane, the 47” Extra 300 SHP and had a maiden flight this weekend. All went well, it’s trimmed nearly exactly neutral and is possibly tail heavy with the battery all the way forward. Inverted it flies level just as it does oriented normally and up. On takeoff I was expecting it to pull up and finally had to use elevator to lift it off the ground.

I’m a little disappointed in the power of the 103g with a 12x6 prop. I don’t seem to have the quick responses I was expecting from watching other friends fly their 3DHS planes. I had expected the recommended setup to be a bit more, but perhaps it’s not the motor, but another component such as the ESC or the prop?

In testing with a fresh 3S 2200mAH I get the following stats:
HK 40A ESC, 12x6 JXF poly composite prop; yields 42.4Amps peak, 473.2 watts peak

It takes a bit to spin up and I was expecting it to respond like an EPP foamy, maybe that is just how these larger planes are? If I upside the motor, perhaps the Motrofly 2815-950? They show 500 watts in their data with a 12x6 prop but that’s not much of a difference.

Suggestions for next steps are appreciated? My thinking is to let one of my friends who has several 3DHS planes give it a fly and see what he thinks, then look at the ESC or possibly prop, but my default guess is it’s the engine.

Thanks for input, Dale

ESC is a bottle neck in my opinion. try a ztw speed control.

Or just stick with that setup and try a 13x6.5

I used a 14x7 with a omega 130g and that gives it a lot more punch than a 103g with 12x6 prop and I know alot of people use the motrolfly 2815-950 with a 13x6.5 and like it, or if you really want punch you can get a custom wound motrolfly 2815-1000 and use a 13x6.5 prop, I am going to try that setup when I have the cash to fix the plane and the motor but I have been told the 2815-1000 and a 13x6.5 prop will be alot of fun.

I really liked and had no problem with the 130g omega and a 14x7 but it broke and it was my fault so i bought a motrolfly to dry something different.
