    What's Up With 3DHS??

    We get the dregs of the U.S. Order. Basically what ever didn't fit in the containers destined for the USA. There are no manufacturing runs for our order, we just get a list of what is left over and order from that.

    Why do you love this hobby?

    Started with rc cars maybe 7 years ago, and got bored real quick. I then moved onto planes, but once agin got a bit "over it" after a few big crashes in a row. A few years later I got inspired after talking to someone I worked with to get back into it again. Bought a new...

    My wife says.....

    We have an agreement :) As long as the bills get paid on time, all is good. She would rather I go out and fly planes with my mates than go to the pub and drink with them. Hell she even gave me the spare bedroom as an indoor workshop/ plane storage room.

    72" Extra 330SC

    Some updates to my 72" I pulled off an amazing manoeuvre a week or so ago. The full throttle KE landing! Since there are no kits left in Australia, I was forced to rebuild, and so began a huge learning curve in sheeting balsa and covering wings. First up things needed a bit of "forced...

    Just PM people an embedded jpg with the website address. Host the picture off site obviously. Since anything GSN is blocked.
