I am sure it is a great airplane as well, I don't think any of the airplanes manufactured these days have bad tendencies.

I think with technology and and where we are now in this era, its difficult to come out with an airplane with bad flying characteristics.

Its just that some might fit someones needs a bit better than others.

Thanks Hone1er, will go with their power combo too. Don't mind the soldering at at all, I am an electronic tech, but it certainly saves time and better to get everything from one source.

Thanks for the input, will go with their recommended power combo.

I will have to get used to flying this small and nimble as well.

though I fly giant scale, these foamies are in a class of their own with nimbleness and performance.

Just for the sake of having choices here is another power combo that ought to work well:http://www.rcplanebuilder.com/index....roducts_id=257
For what it is worth, I am flying a 32" TH Sbach, with the earlier 1800 kv motor from TH, and I love this plane. I'm not a newb, but I'm not that good either, so I crash this thing alot and it's like keeps going like an Energizer Bunny. If you are flying outdoors, you might want to skip the LG. Most of the damage to my plane has been from that. I'm seriously about to take my dremel to it.

When I was looking to buy my first 3D plane, I also looked at the 3DHS and the TH planes. I think what sold me on the TH planes was the passion in the TH threads. What a great bunch of guys and an awesome vendor. TH proves everyday they appreciate their customers with amazing service and innovations in their product line.

That is not a reflection one way or another on 3DHS. I'm just sayin'

I know 3DHS has enormous following and if I was going to buy balsa, I think they're a no-brainer. I want one but I'm not ready for balsa. lol

As it stands today, 3DHS offers only two foamies both 48"

The gravitation towards TH smaller foamies is well accepted and landscape is cleaner now. No overlap, choices are clear by size and I like it.

I have a crack yak and as my first plane, it is just incredible. Looking for a bigger foamy - bring more confidence at high durability - before I go wild with maneuvers with those delicate balsa favorites from 3DHS. Even those are diminishing since I don't see the smaller Velox anymore!

I may get the 48" EPP EXTRA from 3DHS. It has many reinforcements and it's not a profile either.

Nothing against 3dhs as i have 2 of their balsa planes but check out the very end of this video. The built up foamies are just not as tuff as profile stuff. If im going to be repairing wood it'll be on a wood plane.
3dhs 48 Epp Extra - Huckin and Crashin!! (5 min 8 sec)



Again nothing against 3dhs cause they rock!

The whole idea of a foamie is not that... At least with a Telink all you need is a tube of Welders.

Or in your case, a tree service. lol

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

LOL very cutting shunyata

That extra does look like it's a sweet flyer. Your right though, if you did that to a Telink you'd be changing the prop and going again

It looks AWESOME! But mine would have been junk within the first 10 minutes.

I have got that Extra also. It is a very slick flier for an EPP and it does all the tricks in the book.
48" EPP 3DHS Extra 330SC (4 min 4 sec)

3DHS has some neat foam stuff. I would never call this airplane here durable, but it is less fragile than a balsa plane of the same size. And a lot easier to repair.
