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...

Hi Joe,

What is your preffered smoke setup/system?

What components do you use from tank to muffler and also how do you secure everything? Tie Wraps? Safety wire?

It's a bit quiet over here in the PA forum so I thought I'd start a thread on the Ultimate AMR. I've had my AMR for nearly two years now it's a quirky little bipe which you will love or hate. Yeah like all bipes it's got some coupling issues and has a few little build...

I just purchased a Katana from Nitroplanes. It was on sale for less than $59, and was delivered in 3 days. The finish on the Katana is very fragile, and just removing the parts from the protective styrofoam packaging resulted in the paint stripping off the EPO surface. It just does not adhere very well to the...

Looking for some advice on getting more consistant KE spins. First off I am not having any problem with my larger 87" SHP but I have had problems with my smaller planes locking a KE Spin in. Smaller as in 42" Slick and 47" SHP.
I have have experimenting with how much ruder and how much aileron but I cannot...
