Well, Sarge, that's about par for the course. I didn't receive my $5.00 reimbursement and they won't answer any inquiries about it. Looks like responsibility is only expected of us.

That's not nice at all. Surely they recognized you, don't you think? Don't they need all the friends they can get? Certainly you've done nothing here that Horizon Hobby can get miffed about!

If you're going to explore 3D you deserve to do it without fear. Your best way in is an EPP profile 3D plane. Chellie is your expert there and you can get in for way less than the Parkzone route.

The future is ALWAYS expensive. But if you were to produce short kits and complete kits, this is a very reasonably priced tool, even now. Lots of people have that much invested in a single plane.
