Recently picked up a 59" 3DHS Slick during the garage sale held here on 3drcforums and wanted to write a small review on it based on the pros, cons, and things I found while building and flying the plane. Let me preface this by saying this is my first official review, I am an intermediate/advanced pilot and a...

I'm slightly nearsighted (-1.50) and normally wear glasses. On top of that, I also have some astigmatism. When I fly I wear contacts under my non-prescription polarizing sunglasses. The problem is my contacts don't correct for my astigmatism, so at at a specific angle (when the plane comes in from the left), I see...

Some of you may know me, many do not but my personal feelings on buying American and buying our RC goods from American shops and vendors would seem like the natural thing to do. We have hundreds of stores here in the US with great products, cheap prices and fantastic customer service. It makes me wonder why would...

Well I am on the hunt for a new radio. I currently have an Airtronics RDS 8000 and really like it. But I want to upgrade to something with a few more features. There is so much info out there and just when you think you may have decided on something, someone comes along and shoots a hole in that idea. I would...

Today I had the pleasure of flying together with an experienced 3D pilot flying the same plane as me (EF Laser EXP). It's great seeing first hand what the airframe is capable of doing and to get some simple pointers. It gave me a lot of confidence I didn't have before.

So newbie tip of the day from your...

What's the weight of the 3615? With the lightened x mount?

Not sure if this is a "build thread" or not, so feel free to move this post to its own spot, Gyro. Got the 72 build underway.
