Stud ear-rig clips?

No way.

What a stupid idea!

And they're expensive. About $2 or $3 for fifty-two of them!

Sorry, pug. I forgot whose idea it was. If I had remembered I would have given you credit for sure! Worse would have been to give someone else credit because of my failing memory!

Phooey on taking credit!!!

I just like to repost the info whenever the topic comes up, 'cause I think it's such a nifty solution to a common question.

It wasn't my original idea anyway. Somebody else (can't remember who!) suggested it long ago, on another thread (can't remember which!).

Plane? So, this is a carpentry thread? I've got a couple Stanleys around here somewhere. Beast 3D sure is an odd name for a plane.

So that's why people have been talking about "planks"!

finally checking in on this thread, bought my beast 3d a couple weeks ago along with a dx6i so i could fly it lol. Suffice to say i have such a blast flying the plane and its been a nice change from flying my larger 3d planes.

Now the question i have at this point is what do you guys suggest for batteries and where do i buy them? I originally bought the basic beast 3d and two 200mah packs from a dealer at the swap meet i was at but i need more packs for some after work flying
