Question

Crashed my 3DHS Edge 55 need new planes any advice?


I was flying inverted and pulled instead of pushed. The GR60 and esc are fine. I dont know if I should get the same plane or something else. I like the size of the 55. One wing did survive and I have 6 4S 4000 lipos so it would have to use all the same equipment. This was my first real 3D plane. I had it for two months and got tons of flights.

I'd replace it with the 3DHS 57" Extra 330 if it were me.

Double down on the 57" SC.All your gear will drop right in. basically the same plane, but a little bigger, lighter, smoother, much better than ever..

I like the look of the extra. Too bad its not in stock. I wonder how long that will take? Is there much difference between the two planes? Handle any different or are some moves easier on one to another? The 3D thing is pretty new to me. What do I need to look for? Is 3DHS the best bet? Thx

Now, that question will open a can of worms....

There seems to be two or three groups that swear alliance to one brand over another. They all have slightly different feel to them and it comes down to personal preference for the size you want.

3DHS make some very good planes, they go together well, fly well, there is plenty of support on here if you have a question and I own two!

I also have a few planes from other manufacturers and like them just as much. My advice is read the whole threads on each plane you are interested in. I used to watch the video's but some of these guys are so good they could hover a brick.

+1 on the 57" Extra SC. That's what I would get if I was in your shoes. I have the 55" Edge and it's awesome, but if I ever destroy it beyond repair I'll get something different. I like a little variety and that 57" SC looks sweet!

Get the same Edge again.
Save the crashed one.
The canopy, cowl, motor box, CF gear legs, tailfeathers or chunk of covering might come in handy again sooner or latter. Might have another crash (guranteed) that you wouldn't have to buy parts for.

That said, I rarely get the same plane twice.

Na man...it's more of an assembly. I totaly enjoy putting a new plane together. I was jus in the shop assembling a tiny GWS TigerMoth. It's fun to get it all together.

I can't wait to start on my soon to be delivered (tomorrow) Big V!

Now a StevenAero or MountainModel or HouseOfBalsa kit?....where you really do build the plane...I can see how some would think that sucks. Me, I like it and have built many.

Should be bad weather this weekend so good to build. Sucks spending money and time that I could be flying or buying a new plane. Need to keep the fleet at full strength!
