This plane is fast, precise, and looks amazing in the air! Here are two pics I snapped of one flown by Twistedgrim today. DSCF0900.jpg DSCF0899.jpg

Just got one of these today, what a REMARKABLE airplane. I think you truly can't appreciate the beauty of this plane unless it's in person. I'll try to get some pics posted soon.

3DRCForums recently did a review of the 42" Vyper Bype, and we used the new ZTW "B" Series 65A programmable ESC in it. What we love about this ESC is that it’s the first ZTW ESC released that has a programmable BEC voltage, allowing a choice between 5, 5.5, and 6v output. With today's servos getting better and...

Recently, 3DRCForums had a chance to evaluate the new 42" Vyper Bype, and used the Hacker A30-12XL-V2 motor from www.aero-model.com. This 700kv motor is rated for 700 watts of glorious power, and spins a 14x7 or 15x6 prop remarkably well. We used the...

Ok, I know this is not a 3d plane but I'm just so enamored with this plane so far and it's reported to be a super sweet sport flyer capable of the great aerobatics which will without a doubt make you a better 3d pilot. Maybe djmoose will come in here and back me up on this and I know he is a fan of this plane. I...

just got through with the power up tests on my new Pilot RC Sbach.

Using the Hacker Q80-8M 12s setup and Mej 24x10TH prop, it has some serious watts and rpm for an electric. I got away with 2.5" DA stand offs on the motor due to the adjustable fire wall system PilotRc employ in their kits. Sweet.

48" Extreme Flight Edge - Sweet :) Well, crashed my EF Yak back and SEFF and finally managed to get the replacement assembled and about ready to go. Just need to set the throws and wait for the crappy weather to pass. :)

Did not realize EF had switched to ball links even on their small planes. Very...

Wanted to give a big thumbs up to Craig's excellent standoffs. Ordered some late last week, had them monday, and now they are all installed on an Aerobeez 75" MXS from exilehobby.com. The motor is a large DualSky one that exilehobby sells, this is a demo plane built with gear that Landon sells there. (it's his...

Selling a like new Castle Creations Phoenix Ice2 HV80 50V ESC that I have about 10 flights on. Bought it a few months back, still under warranty. Comes with NO connectors but has throttle connector, in original packing. I will also include the coupon that came with the ESC for the FREE Castle Creations Castle Link...
