Anybody know what the deal is at 3DHS. I've been waiting over 3 months to order a new (edit: replacement) 42 Slick. It read on the site for a very long time due early December. now it's just says put me on the waiting list. Dude I been waiting a loooooong time already. I could have driven to china and back by now. LOL Seriously I can hold my breath a really loooong time. But waiting on the Slick is getting old.

It's the game we all play in this hobby... Those boats don't get the crates here overnight...! Ever notice how everything everyone wants is always out of stock! Lol! It's not a 3dhs problem, EF has the same issues! They got their crate of 88" edges a few days ago and last I heard they were gone already!

Patience, and jump on it when it's available. That's all you can do!

Then get another 3DHS. I have yet to hear of anyone being disapointed with any 3DHS plane. They are worth the wait( Even if it is 6-7 Months)

I think they do it intentionally, knowing that all of us Addicts will cave in and buy something we don't really need or want, just to get our fix. Then when the anticipated item comes available, BAM! Lol

And yes, well worth the wait. Even in my noobness, I am quite satisfied to wait if need be.

Now I've got a Motrolfly DM2205 1800kv on it with 2s 800 and it is sooo much better IMO. GREAT power, and the added weight gives it momentum to fly more aggressively while still being super slow and floaty in harrier. Despite the added weight, it feels very crisp and rigid. Easily gets 7 minute flights as well.

It has zero coupling... the only sort of weird thing about it is the rudder authority. It will knife edge with just the tiniest rudder input, and it's easy to give too much. Now that I am used to it I am having a blast though... tightest KE loops ever. So far everyone I've let fly it says they want one.
Sigh... So not what I was hoping you'd say.

I fly my CY with a Park 300 3s setup and love it too. My rudder barely has any movement to one side because of a bad glue job after I ripped my rudder off but with the crazy rudder authority the plane has it doesn't matter.

I filmed this yesterday... I have maybe 5 degrees of right rudder. It shows in some maneuvers where I get stuck but it's really amazing that it can fly with such limited throw!!

Only thing I have "any" intention of buying in the near to mid future is two "Bigfoot" (Bigfeet?)

I was looking at the Aviat website. the full scale husky's specs make me want to start selling my organs to get a license and one of their 180hp models. take off roll is 200 feet, range at 130 mph is supposedly 800 miles.

No thanks on the edge I have a great one already. I really did want to replace the 42 because it's a great size for a certain DC park. But now I'm thinking I might sell the wings and power system and just stick to the foamies downtown.

I personally think it is a production capacity issue... They all do they best they can. If any vendor had this issue under control I might think differently but all of these companies lose money on sales they could have made had there been any in stock. If it was just one firm I'd say it was poor forecasting but since everyone is plagued by it I think there are just only so many ARF producers and everyone has to wait in the queue for their order to be filled. So... for now... cherish the planes you can get your hands on and realize we aren't talking about food, clothes, or shelter. We won't die if we can't get our ARF exactly when we want it. I am confident that Ben and company are doing everything they can to keep the ARFs flowing over here!

I agree... I'm sure these companies don't enjoy the majority of their catalog being out of stock most of the year!
