It does Inverted harriers pretty easily

...that could be argued. I have had two Q's and while I have nothing but excellent things to say of HH's service, I did find quality issues on both of my Q's.

of the two planes, 7 servos had to be replaced and one ESC.

I am not arguing that PZ does not use decent components, but IMHO to say these ships have "top quality components" is not accurate.



As for three 3D ships, I would have to choose:

1. EF 70" Extra
2. EF 64" MXS or PA Ultimate AMR
3. Burned Retina, a PA Addiction-X night flyer (see avatar)

As of right now (I am finishing my build of a 64" EF MXS so my list might change)

3DHS 40" EPP Edge
3DHS 71" Slick (still getting use to her but I love the size!)
Fancy Foam 34" EPP Freestyle for indoors not outdoors, there are two versions.

as the OP it has come to my realization that this would have more merit if we knew what else you own/ have owned.

Here is my 3D plane run down right now, it is always growing or shirking like everyone else's.

Not sure if you would call these 3D planes but I like them anyways, they are great fun when you literally have no room to fly.
EFlite Beast V1
EFlite Beast V2

34" Fancy Foam Freestyle
38" EPP AJ Slick (This is my main night flyer)
39" Hokusei EPP SBach 342 BX (The one that is like the 3DHS full frame epp planes)
40" 3DHS EPP Edge
41" 3DHS Edge in Orange
48" 3DHS Edge in Blue
64" EF MXS in Green (Currently in Build)
71" 3DHS AJ Slick

I really like my 48" Edge 540 except for the wire landing gear. I think 48" is a little too big for wire gear IMHO. I am going to be getting a 42" AJ Slick when they come back in stock and probably sell my 41" Edge. I like the 41 Edge just fine but I have heard the baby Slick blows it out of the water.

I love my 71" Slick but I still need more practice with it. I can throw down my smaller stuff much better right now. Maybe I am just struggling with the Slick learning curve I have heard about. I just love how smooth and graceful it feels in the air. I have never flown anything larger so I cannot comment but one day I would like to at least get up to a 50CC sized plane.

Despite people complaining about the issues with the little 40" EPP Edge it is probably my favorite plane right now. If you slap the 103g Omega in it, it is just a blast to fly! Everyone at my field jokes when I bring it out that there is not enough power. It is just a crazy tumbling handful and I love it! I have a tough time getting a nice looking blender with it and the ailerons pretty much loose their use at full throttle but I do not fly full throttle all the time so I just do not even think about it. I am thinking about buying another just to have in case something happens.

Ok sorry for the long post but I hope it was informational. My future planes I am looking at (not the near future) is a 42" Slick, 87 3DHS Extra, the EPP Bigfoot, and maybe either an EF or 3DHS 48" Extra just to see if I like it better then my Edge. I have only flown the PA Extra and the Parkzone Extra and they were both just OK in my book. The PA was super floaty almost to where it was not fun to me.

Ok perhaps I should of added "for the money" onto the end of my statement. The servos may have failed on yours but for the money they are strong and accurate (Reliable for me though also).


Its 100 for a model which comes with a 60 ESC... sorry I don't know the US price... seems like a good deal to me
