Dont worry! I am paying back every cent plus interest! (to myself)
So technically I am borrowing money from myself, and I will just keep paying it back. Like the 8FG i got for $180.
I am selling both Receiver's that come with it, got $50 off on tower and free shipping. Sell my 7C for $100, thats $180 for the 8Fg tx alone!
Gotcha.

Curtis made the Helldiver. I just watched a old Dogfights episode where a Douglas SBD engaged 3 zeros and shot down 2!

Tiger Cat is super cool. I was just mulling over doing up one of these in winter. making the twins sync will be a PIA, and you have to do it up with fuel power to make it sound right. Maybe FMS will make one and solve my problem.

Put 2 flights on my new 57 extra from 3dhs last night. I can see this may quickly become my favorite plane.

That's one of my favorite airplanes I've flown, never put my hands on an airframe that will just bundle around itself in high speed tumbles like it will

I should have listened. I was a little shocked how well it floated. I thought my 55 edge was good at this then the 57 was a whole other level. I have not done to much with it yet as I wanted to get it in the air then go over it to make sure nothing is loose and such. Just had some decals made for it with a big thanks to Santi at s8graphix. Once I have those on I will make sure to post some photos of it.

Santi has been great to work with and also was very much in touch with me during the design stage. Please if you need anything done contact him, the photos I will post next week will show the quality.

You need to fly the 58 edge then. That is a rotating monster. That's the craziest plane l have flown.

The 58" Edge is a great 3d monster, I have one. Flying the 57" then the 58" I learned there is a huge difference. 57 is precise and great in 3D and the 58" is precise and all out ballistic, neutral CG makes for insane tumbles and great 3D, while forward CG makes for great precision. The 58" does 4 revolutions in a crankshaft in under one second. That's pretty fast! I'll be posting a video of the 58" soon on my blog so you can check in on it. But here's a video that a friend took at Black Dirt IMAC:
this is with neutral CG

All this talk about the 58" edge makes me want to fix mine up and get it back in the air.

guys, kinda question on cs... has 3dhs/ef/someone in rc actually thrown something in your order for free? yesterday had another nice experience with mar from parkaero... i was asking him to get 85A esc, wich he didnt have on previous batch, he promissed to save one for me if they go out of stock, i ordered esc, decided to scrap my telink slick and get a buster... and forgot to order a propeller for another plane...sent him email, and get answer, thank you for buying plane, not only esc, and dont worry, as a thank you, ill drop this prop in for free! actually every time i sent him email regarding something i have bought/want to buy, i get the nice personal customer service!
