you did not list for the different models of the extra. My favorite 3D plane is the extra 260 the Troybuilt Models to be exact.

You forgot the Ultimate Bipe, that'll 3D with the best of 'em. I'm no 3D pro, but i've seen all of your choices do awesome 3D.

The reason I left the Ultimate out is becos I dont want the inconvenience of handling 2 wings. No doubt, its a damn good 3D plane.

Thats a good reason, twice the work to put it together.What size plane are you looking for anyway? Does it have to be a scale plane? I don't like spads or profiles but there are some good full fuse non scale planes out there.

RC330LXFlya,

I am planning to scratch build a 3D plane...I dont like to have many planes, hence they quest to find out which is the best. I plan to build an 85" wing span version, AUW should be within 10lbs with the ZDZ50NG.

Regards
Marcus

Thats cool, with that wieght and a ZDZ 50 it will be awesome. I would leave out the Giles, but other than that I think any of them would be good for 3D as long as it's designed specifically for 3D. There are some small upsides and downsides to different planes, but to me it's just personal preference.

An Extra 260. With the mid wing they sit more vertical in the hover.

you are missing several alternatives.. unless you seek IMAC compatible in which case you should post the vote in the IMAC thread

All depends. I love the Giles 300 for 3D tumbling maneuvers and gorgeous steep elevators. I love the Caps ability for high alpha knife edge, as well as tumbling maneuvers. I love the Extra 330s for blenders, flat spins, inverted elevators, flip-flops and walls. I love the Edge for its nimble characteristics. I've only flown the 42% Yak-55sp once, and didn't really get a chance to 3D it, but it was the nicest airplane I have flown in a long time.

Can't I just get one airplane with all these rolled up into one??

You left out all the variations of the different planes. Snap 21, Crap 232, Cap 231, Sukhoi SU 26, 29, 31. Extra 300S 300L. Edge 540, 540T.Yak 54, 55. I'm sure all the others have variations to, I just don't now of them.

EDGE!They fly great, and are very nimble, hover fairly easy, but it takes some getting used to.
My 27% waterfalls end over end with the engine's own smoke billowing around it. It does the best blenders and knife-edge spins I have ever seen, and harriers easily. All the other choices there are probably also very good, my knowledge of the Edge is because I have one.
