    RE: GP Shoestring Power Recommendation

    Just check out the videos for the plane. Flights go for about 8 minutes from what they've told me, and there is TONS of power ;)

    RE: 3rd plane

    I think a 25 sized electric is a bit big as a third model. You might want to give a 3D foamy a go, hone your skills in a bit before you step into a larger model ;)

    RE: Servo mounting for 3D

    IMO, putting the servos about 2-3" behind the wing on most foamies yields a better moving foamy. More mass around the tail will allow it to whip around better in spins ;)

    RE: Is a Foamie a Good Second Plane?

    I'm going against a foamy as a 2nd plane. Firstly, because a foamy will go where you point it: you roll it over, it will stay there, not self correct itself. You accidentally pull up and it'll go in....

    RE: Electro Dust

    Well, I'd try to go with 2:1 power to weight ratio. More power, higher speed, and insane vertical :D Looks clean too.

    Too much rpm? Sounds like you're over amping the ESC, and therefore need to go down a size in prop, or need to go up in ESC size.
