I'm using the Max3D when I want something that's as docile on the low and slow as my Sabre X and the DA Extra when I want something a bit more advanced. Any good custom models I should know about?

Hey how about a thread for our experts in RealFlight to share their RF6 models with us so we don't have to go to KnifeEdge to get them? I thought I would make this a separate thread from the discussion thread so the models would be easier to find. TODO: Add instructions to this post detailing how to...

Looks like I'll be the first one to post here.

I'm looking for an engine for my newly acquired 3DHS 103" Extra.

Let me know what you got.

Other than being a great plane for low and slow flying, the Sabre X features red transparent covering for the entire fuse and wings. I'm tempted to install a lighting system that takes advantage of that.

The problem is I have zero experience with lights on RC planes. I'd like to cut as little covering as...

This is Ben Fisher's (3DHS) advice and commentary on how to land a 3D airplane:

1. Landing is a maneuver, like any other. You are the pilot, not the passenger. The very first step to making good landings is to take responsibility for them. If you...

I have two Motrofly DM4315-480 motors. One in a 3dhs 57" extra and the other in my EF 60" edge.

Both are running Xoar props currently, 15x8 for the extra and 16x7 or 16x8 on the edge.

My problem is that on the two times I have had a little mishap that causes props to break, on first occasion was an inverted...
