Howdy Pro Bro's,
I'm just getting back into RC flying for the 3rd time in my life and 3D flying looks like it will be a blast.
My first 3D plane just arrived, an Extreme Flight .40 Edge 540T. I'm waiting for my new radio to arrive (Futaba 7CAP W/ digital servos), it is on back order right now.
I need to buy a 3D kit so I can build my own plane. I'm still trying to decide which one to get. Think that I will probably get a foamy of some sort to practice with also to save wear and tear on the wood planes.
I am practicing with Aero Fly Pro too.
I have plenty of room at home to fly, 93+ acres, which should be plenty for 3D flying. :)
I'm looking forward to learning about 3D with your help.
Best regards,
Bill

Hell, y'all load up and run on down here to South Texas. At Jetero R/C club we have a 100 X 600 Ft. Grass runway, 30 acres of field and an additional 70 acres to overfly witn no interference anywhere.
100 Ft. covered pavilion, full kitchen, real bathrooms with running water, fans to cool your heated brow, chairs to sit your tired ass in, and plenty of tables to build your profiles on, or rebuild as the case may be.

Look us up at this site. www.jetero.com
Shoot, we even have a map to the place.

Burrito Burrito Burrito!
Its one of the least expensive kits around, one of the most rookie-friendly 3D planes and probably the most durable too. It's what I learned / am learning with.

A foamy really (IMHO) really isn't a good 3D trainer and they are VERY fragile. If you're really worried about breaking something, a foamy isn't the best way to go. If you're that set on durability get a cheap $25 SPA3D to practice with, but again, I would recommend the Burrito first.

Other than breaking and occasional control surface stick or something mine is in great shape. The Burrito is Very well built. At the Cookeville Pro Bro the designer of it (Paul Swanson) and several others watched me go in hard at about a 45 degree angle from about 30ft. It went down behind some bushes so I expected to be building another one. When I got to it, it broke 1 single stick on the bottom of the fuse and bent the landing gear a little. I was back in the air before the engine was cooled off!
I got my first tale touch later that day with the same plane :D
