I'm almost positive that it's both of our setups. Nick, if I were you... it's probably not a good idea to sell all that stuff already. How bad is the crash damage?

My issue was the 1300 mAH 3S 20C pack that I used in my Edge. In the future, if I ever build another 3DHS plane, I have to remember to use the recommended battery. In that case, it was a 1800-2200 mAH 3S 30C+. I had to put weight in the front and I'm pretty sure that ruined it's performance.

Are those going to be your two flyers, or are you going to buy more?

Well first I'll need to sell more stuff. Yeah eventually I'll buy more. I also have those DLGs which will be shipped out at some point.

Why, any suggestions?

If I were you, I would take advantage that you're gonna get a surge of cash from your FPV stuff, and use the opportunity to get something big and nice. Maybe something from 3DHS?


BTW, is the precision aerobatics stuff good? I've heard the Addiction x Is an awsome 3D'er

Something "big and nice" isn't good for me. Why? I don't fly at a field (baseball fields only, no takeoff strip). Not to mention that it would be dangerous flying something large at those fields

I'm just going to save it up and when I feel like it, buy something. I'm going to need some Deans connectors probably, and later on I want to also build a 500 sized heli, or maybe a 450.

I'd rather spend the money on lots of cheap foamies instead of one huge project.

Oh and PA stuff sucks from what I've heard. Very, very fragile.

Oh, thats true. On the other hand it is kind of cool to have a big fleet to brag about

Too bad about the PA stuff

Eventually, I do want to build something larger. Probably something from CrashTestHobby, like the Grim Reaper, those are nice and big, as well as relatively cheap and definitely durable!

I'm going to get like $50 from the DX5e, $60 from some of the 41'' Edge parts that I'm selling, $200 from the rest of the FPV gear, $100 from YouTube, and $50 for my birthday. In total that's $460, and that should last me through the summer, too!
