Plane suggestion for DLE 20


Any suggestions to a 3d plane for my DLE 20? I'm leaning toward Extreme Flight and 3dhs, however I'll entertain any suggestions. Not too many planes currently available for this engine, since it's so new.

Send Ben an email at 3DHS. He's in the best position to answer.

As far as our lineup at 3DHS, I'd recommend the 68" Velox. Right size, comes with beam mounts, and we have about a dozen customers currently flying it on the 20 and reporting very good results.

My flying buddy has a Velox with a DLE 20 and it has no lack of power and hovers under 50% throttle. It also rolls so fast and snaps so hard it almost scared him. Also it flys all day on 1 tank of gas. Pretty impressive IMHO.

You talking about Gary's airplane?

He let me fly it and it's a blast. Great combination.

That would be it, I was too scared to fly it until my skills can match that beast. What a roll rate.

Will run up the street to Joe Nall and see if 3dhs is attending. I believe extreme flight will be there and they have the 70" extra 300. Hope to see both in person as their prices are comparable. Both mfg's have great reputations and both planes seem capable.

Has anyone flown both and chime in? (Don't want to start a war here)

We have a club member who flies for extreme flight.

With cash in hand, I'll pick up a DLE 30 (for a future plane) and one of these planes for my DLE 20. If I can't make up my decision, might just pull the trigger on both. Who knows? It's Joe Nall afterall...

there are a few 3DHS team pilots flying at Joe Nall, but there isn't the uber-trailer with product in it...

Not being around that area I have no idea but I'm sure if you talk nicely to the 3DHS guys they could bring one over if it is a more than a 1 day event and 3DHS is close-ish?

Does anyone know if 3dhs will have planes there for sale? It would help me save money on shipping. Also, there are always deals there

Wow. This is a old thread you resurrected.

The only planes that seem to do super well for 3D are the profiles on this motor. You get okay performance on the Velox, but not ballistic. Other planes that are the right weight don't have the control throws. If you don't have the motor get a 30cc. Much better choices in both motors and airframes.
