Default Need a few opinions please

Ok i consider myself a intermediate flyer, i have not had any experience with electric flight as of yet. Due to road expansion i lost my flying sight and i am now getting into smaller electric stuff.

Ok in a trade i aquired this gear

http://secure.hobbyzone.com/catalog/.../EFLA311B.html speed control

http://www.modelflight.com.au/rc_mod..._4_channel.htm receiver

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXTX42&P=M servo two of these

I am looking for some suggestions at to what plane this gear will work well in. Looking for something that can handle 3d and such.

But i am resticted to a field that is about 150 yards by 150 yards

Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks

Attached is the Hobby-Lobby super zoom. I have basically the idenical equipment you have listed and have installed on this plane. This was one of my wnter projects. I was extermly satified with the results. It flys and handles like nothing else I have had. (I consider myself an intermediate flyer). I put floats on this plane and fly off a littel pond I have in my back yard. You can fly it in an area the size of a baseball outfeild with out any problems at all. teh only draw back i have found is that it is on the lighter side and does not handle a strong breeze well.

good luck!

After a bit of research that super zoom looks like a good buy, its hard to find someone say something bad about it, looks like a winner to me

The foam is almost indistructacable. the assembly took all of maybe 2 hours.. The 400 outrunner will provide tons of power. you'll just have to be careful on windy days. to say the least, I've been very happy with this bird!
