I have a blitz EPP bi-plane from North East Sailplanes, At least for me the sevice was real good, got here quickly. I have a rimfire with a bl-8 speed control, 3cell 640mah packs(all electrifly) and then a futaba 4yf with the r114f(i think the r and f are in the righ tplace there) with s3108 servos on the tail and a s3107 for the ailerons, Flys fairly nice, only thing I may do is add CF to the tail section to stop the flex, the wings however use aluminum support rods and are rock solid...plus the full flying stab. makes hovers, elevators, and harriers nicely....

I have been having a lot of fun with smallish 3d planes. I take any plan I can find and scale it to around 24-26" WS, keep the weight around 5oz or less and go at it. I built the slofly 3d one from the plans on the website, I built another one from http://www.3dbatix.com/plans.htm (scaled the extra 330 3d to 67% for about 24"WS)
All my planes, are right around the samw weight and wingspan. I use 2 or 3 cell etec 450 mah batteries (the 3cell batts are on sale at allerc right now by the way) .

  • It's an ARF not a kit
  • Built fuse
  • Built wing with carbon fiber and tape in place
  • Pre-Painted
  • Included hardware kit
  • pre-cut control surfaces
  • Full Fuse (not a profile)
  • Full Airfoiled wing (not a flat plate)
  • illustrated manual
  • Extreamly durable
  • Great 3D flyer
