Default Good 3D plane for 11.1v 2200mah LiPos

I have a bunch of 11.1v 2200 mah batteries and am looking for a good 3D airframe to buy to use them on. Any suggestions? I have been roaming some of the sites I know of like Tower,Nitroplanes, Banana Hobby and Horizon but I don't know what is decent quality and what is junk!

Thanks,
Chris

I have seen both of those fly at my local field. I like the 3DHS foamies. I didn't know they were 3 cell capable though. The addiction is a beautiful airplane but it looks really fragile!

the addiction will fly with a littel lighter fealing the the 48" EPP extra ...

he's right aslo another great airplane


the EF EXP extra and edge 540 49" are also great flying airplanes in that side but require 4 cell

honlsty its hard to be the Edge 540 49"

buy whatever makes you happy


Blade 450 ... also could be on the menu [&:]

If you want a balsa fatty the Eflite Sukhoi is actually not bad, most LHS carry them.
I always though it was kinda lacking, and never impressed me.
The other day I swapped out the elevator servo, as it was not centering and moved the CG back to 4 inches and fine uned my controls.
Now its a lively little devil, and actually is quite likeable and does alot of things well, Harriers really good upright and inverted, good snaps and hovers, good clean roll rate, still need to work on getting some good tumbles and better KE, but its fun while my bigger planes are grounded until better weather and runway condition improves. there are better choices, but if you see one at a good deal localy, its worth considering.

I was looking for something cheap I could beat the heck out of while learning/practicing 3D. Didn't really care what it looked like, but CHEAP was a priority as this was going to be about low and slow, and nothing flies low and slow as well as something you can buy on the cheap!

This one comes in ARF or kit form. In kit form you can pick up a set of cheap metal gear servos, a 100-106g 350+ watt motor (Tgy D3536 works great!), and have balistic performance in an airframe you can beat the tar out of. In 2 words, awesome trainer. It's proven very durable, and when (not if!) you break it, it's all EPP and carbon fiber so it's very easily repaired.

47" W.S. It uses packs that are 106mm long tops. Handles 2200's well, and 10+ minute flight times are easy. I'm using an 11x4.7 prop. Mine came in just under 30oz/900g all up w/2200mah
