EPP profile foamy for sure...

Check out the Twisted Hobbys lineup, these are probably the most popular EPP foamys out there, and for good reason. These are some,badass foamys.

A rainy day here, (A natural disaster in SOCAL!) so I finally started putting together my Tech One Swift.

Nitroplanes Tech One Swift

It was recommended by a few guys at the field and will be my first venture into 3d. We'll see if my fingers will be able to learn!

I just did the maiden flight with the 47" extra 330. First flight I had the rates dialed right down to sport flying expo was set around 48% flew great. Second battery I flipped to medium rates with the same expo started to really come alive. This is going to be one fun plane once I have it dialed in wind was picking up to 8 to 10 mph and it was not a issue. Looking forward to getting it trimmed out and CG where I want it on a calm day.
So here is another one to look at.
I think I will like this one better than my Acro Master.

I'm putting the finishing touches on one of these:

http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...3d-arf-EFL2610

Very pretty little airplane; but something tells me I should have gotten another foamie (had a DPW Juka, it had issues and just wasn't my cup of tea).

This one is fragile and will splinter big time if you dork it. My plan is to get it pretty high before starting any 3D stuff.

I'm no newbie at the hobby (been flying these things since 1986) but I have NO idea how to go about teaching myself 3D. I did break out my old RealFlight 4.0 sim; that should help.

This is VERY well-made model. The glue joints/covering/etc. are all impeccable. But it is built from light hardwood and contest-grade balsa, so there is ZERO crash-resistance there. I'm looking forward to just buzzing around with it.

But I suspect I'll need to get some sort of foamie before I can really learn this 3D stuff.

NJ Swede was raving the other day about the Twisted Hobbies Beaver.

I have the HK Edge 540T but it's really not a beginners 3D plane IMO. But I have 3 sets of rates programmed: Low rates) "After all, I can fly a super Cub" Mid rates) "Wow, this thing flies like my Formosa 2" and High rates) " OMG, this 3D stuff is a riot !"

Well, it turned out quite nicely; but, as I suspected, it is VERY fragile due to the super-light construction. However, the flying qualities are worth the extra care needed in handling, etc.

Proper CG was a bit of a bother to determine; I ended up needing a half ounce of tail weight, under the LE of the stab, with ThunderPower 1350mAh 3S batteries. At the specified location, the model was quite nose heavy. Got it sorted out now, though.

While it is not happy in much wind, I flew it today in 15mph-gusting-to-25mph conditions, and it was rather lively…

Lastly, the landing gear legs are weak, and bend easily.

Overall, a very nice model. I've seen a lot of bleating on another site about how this model is too expensive for what you get. Perhaps, but the kit quality is excellent, and just as importantly all the hardware/accessories is of equal quality.

I bought another one to put up, since sure as heck Horizon will discontinue the thing just before I want/need another one.

If you're going balsa you should get an Extreme Flight 60" Extra. They fly very well and make a good second plane. Give them a try.

I wanna be an R/C pilot when I grow up!!!!

Crack series for micro, don't fly in wind and telink if you want to go larger, buy the seacraft mount, can't beat these planes. If your a beginner use 30 deg throws 40 expo.

I like my Crack Yak: flies great after MANY crashes.
Here's what I'm looking for my next 3D plane. Anyone have experience with this EPP?

Suss these out, 3d buster is my current warm up plane, that yak should fly similar to the crack yak, bit less floaty, haven't seen the edge b4, doesn't look floaty looks bitey but as I say don't know a thing about it so I could be way wrong.
