Thanks, The only biplane that impresses me right now is the ultimate AMR. I like the construction, CF gear,wing tube,and wheel pants. There almost as nice as a 3DHS plane. The colors work for me also. They have the, edge green that really pops . I cant do sundancers, don't theay usually have rainbow schemes ?

It doesn't matter anyway, I just checked Tower Hobbies and the Sundancer is discontinued. They were 3-color - not rainbow. The Yellow one was listed as LXLCA0.

The purple one has been gone for awhile.

Breaking a sweet!

I just got my 47" Edge kit. I had Rob send it on a 3 day USPS. I just pulled in to my garage when the mail lady pulled up. She started by saying I'm sorry I got it this way! I instantly broke a sweet! Some thing crushed The box, and put a 4 inch whole in it. Before I even opened it I was prepared for the worst so I went and got my camera. If the hole was anywhere else or on the outher side of the box the fuselage would have been destroyed. Amazingly it just missed everything. I cant believe it! check it out.

Thanks for a great packing job ROB!

Man that was close! one of the stringers did get popped just off the LG. no big deal. I just hit it with some CA and tightened up the covering. Wow I cant delieve it .



Just before I got home I was flying my Yak at the park. I went from a tumble it into a wall, it ripped the motor off and folded a wing. it landed 5 feet in front of me. I had to just laugh. thats what happens when you put 150w motor on a foamy!

I need one of those EPP ones!

So far It looks like the best of all the planes in one! The Rudder and elevator are very thick like the SR, and the one piece LG is super strong. There wasn't even 1 wrinkle in the covering.

Guys,

Just want to take a minute to thank all those that have supported the F3A US Team. I have been not been on the forums to much as I have been practicing quite a bit.

Also a big thanks goes out to Knotnuts. Thank you very much.

Andrew

Guy I just got my brother to fly the yellow shp! He has been flying for about 2 months now. He has the PZ corsair and said It fly like crap compaired to the shp. He flew it on low rates of course and did some stall turns, loops and barrel rolls after being up for only a few seconds. He has had issues landing but with the AWSOME SHP he landed like a pro. No bounce or anything! He told me at first he was scared to fly the bigger balsa plane (b/c if you crash it bad it gone unlike the hot glue back together foam and he didnt know what to expect) After the first flight he said that it was soooo easy to fly and he wished he would have bought it first.

So can we get an OH YEAH for the little bro

I think we have converted another

Tim,
The PA Ultimate is a great Bipe ! One of our Guerrilla Squad members (Chris) really enjoys his and says it flys like a foamie It DOES have a few 'quirks' though and I'll let him explain (if he happens to see my post ).

I feel sorry for some of those guys that stick to their guns and say they won't fly 3DHS because of price/repair issues. They are missing a whole other world. I tried, in the beginning, to witness to them but after being beat up by the old grumpy crowed I am ashamed to admit I gave up. I am sure down the road many of them will finally fly the Kool Aid and then hit their forehand and say "I could of have a V-8". Oh well you can lead a horse to water but no way am I sucking on his b-hole to get him a drink.
