Now available at Twistedhobbys! The VA full fuse EPP extra 330sc offers a beautiful, scale look which is hard to achieve with EPP. Great for anyone looking for a durable epp scale airplane that dominates in sport aerobatics and mild low and slow 3D!

Always relaxing to fly the Mikado Logo 690SX on low headspeed with a single 6s battery.

Around 1100 RPM's on this setup. Safe to say that this heli is ready for IRCHA 2018!

Cody Wojcik does it yet again with his newest release and first ever SuperLite series design, the Crack Laser Pro! This plane is by far one of the best Superlite foamie 3d planes on the market. It tracks like it's on rails, has extreme throws, and plenty of power with the recommended power combo. It is a definite must have for the best indoor 3d performance! Thank you TwistedHobbys for the support and thanks to the Lord for His blessings!

The Wind finally went from 35mph to 10-15 with some occasional 20mph gusts. So I took the advantage of the "little" wind and got enough video for this little Intro to Twistedhobbys' brand new release, the Crack Camel! This video features the Blue scheme. Man this plane is amazing,! Very light, agile, and responsive. It can also be a good trainer when the rates are dialed down, a very smooth feeling, especially with no wind.Thank you Twistedhobbys for all the support and thanks to the Lord for His blessings!

I am running the TMW Twistedhobbys combo, with a 2s 450mah (will probably change to 600mah)

Well it was the first snow of 2017 here in Kentucky. I decided to take that opportunity to make a new video with the TwistedHobbys mustang! This thing is a blast for flying around in a local park or field. Thank you TwistedHobbys for the support and thanks to the Lord for His blessings!

Words cannot describe how amazing the new TwistedHobbys/RCFactory Extra 330 V3 performs! Rock solid in the air, plenty of throws, durable, and a well thought out design overall. The thrust vectoring is another amazing feature on this model, it makes the plane turn with the rudder so much faster! Cannot wait to be flying this one indoors! Thank you TwistedHobbys for the support and thanks to the Lord for His blessings!

TwistedHobbys does it yet again with their Crack Fokker! man this thing is amazing! It flies so smooth and slow and is a 3D machine when you want it to be! Also very fun to fly around nice and slow with the flaps down. I also added mixing in the flaps and elevator for some CRAZY fast loops! I am running the Crack Series DMG combo with a 3s 800mah battery which gives me 6 solid minutes of hard 3d. I can go on forever about how good this plane is... Well done Twistedhobbys! the Link to the Fokker and optional power combos are below:

Being a 3D guy I wasn't expecting much from the new TwistedHobbys and RCFactory StepOne Trainer. But now I can say that I am flying this thing as much as I am my 3D foamies! This plane is an amazing flyer, it's fun to glide around like a sailplane (which results in a long flight time). It does inverted loops insanely fast, almost like waterfalls! And when I put my FPV camera on the plane it was almost like it belonged on the StepOne, there is a perfect spot on the front of the wing for a UMX FPV camera, and since the motor is in the back the camera has a perfect view. Another huge plus about the motor being in the back of the StepOne is how much more durable it makes it! Using the same 3 layer foam concept as the Twisted Racer Series planes, it makes the plane just about indestructible! A very well thought out design by TwistedHobbys and RCFactory!

The Kit can be found here: https://twistedhobbys.com/th-34-epp-step-one-trainer/

I am running a 2s 450mah with the TwistedHobbys StepOne power combo which has everything you need to get the plane up in the air except for RX, battery, and radio.

Had great weather and got to get some flights in with one of TwistedHobbys' newer planes. Nope, it's not a 3d plane, but a pylon racer! Designed by Cody Wojcik, the New TwistedHobbys Mustang and Nemesis are amazing flyers!! I was really amazed on how stable the mustang feels in the air. Flys like its on rails! It will even do mild 3D which is incredible! Whether you want something that you want to just fly around, do a little sport flying, or even if your in the need for speed, The Twisted Racer Series planes are definitely for you
