Ummmm..... Does this mean that every other balsa Extra on the market is also a 3DHS copy? It's not like 3DHS invented the Extra 330 airframe, and they weren't even the first to put a model version up for sale. The HobbyKing Extra's span is 59"; the closest 3DHS plane I could find is 57". Copy? I'd say the only thing the same on them is the name and the trim scheme. What about aaaaaallllllllllllllllllllllll the warbirds out there that have been produced with? Who's copying who there?

HobbyKing, just being HobbyKing, probably IS trying to capitalize on the popularity of 3DHS planes, hence the trim scheme and such, but they're two different planes.

Not fair right?
How is that "not fair"? That's business, bro. Why "should" that money be going to me? Why should people be obligated to buy my better-quality product when they can maybe sacrifice a little quality but spend a ton less to get the plane in the air? Business isn't about having the best product possible. It's about making the highest possible profit. HobbyKing's method is to sell low-cost, lower-quality stuff in very large amounts to a very wide audience, while 3DHS sells top-of-the-line planes at much higher prices to a smaller customer base. Both methods work.

Lol, maybe an ultra micro nuclear reactor? To generate steam and power a turbine to generate electricity to power my ultra fast Titan 550...The more complicated, the better!

I'm guessing that somewhere in that old ESC positive touched negative power...

Good thing the fire alarm didn't go off with the smoke... THEN I would've been in trouble!

This was an old 20A ESC, not my Skyartec 25A one, that's another story...
