Default 3d giant scale wanted...

I am in the market for a slightly used, 50cc, aerobatic plane to learn 3d on. I have a wantedadd on the marketplace but I can't find anything near me.I can not go over $700 so I can't buy new. Does anybody have something they could sell to me in the area of Deland, FL?

Boy, a slightly used ready to fly 30%er for $700.00.
That might be hard to find.
Also learning to fly 3D, you should use a proven 3D air frame.
Nothing worse then trying to learn 3D on something that has a hard time even trying 3D.

I would say the Extreme flight Yak or Extra would be a great air frame to learn with.
But to getting one with servos, batteries, and a engine being slightly used will be tough.

Other good choices would be Aeroworks, 3D Hobby shop, PAU.

For myself I have also found the bigger the better for flying.
You can find some good 35%ers ( 100cc ) RTf for about $1500.00
I thought I wouldn't go past 35% planes.
This spring I built a 43% PAU Edge 540.
Wasn't sure if it was worth spending all the extra money over the 100cc planes.
Then I flew it and WOW.
I may get rid of my other 35%er and have two 40% birds.

Well back to you thread, here is a plane in Orlando area.

I suppose there is a really SMALL chance you might find something that someone is just wanting to get rid of for some reason, but I'm with 2robinhood on this one in that I doubt you'll find what you want in that price range. There are a few 50cc size models you'll see go for that kind of money, but they don't fit your 3D requirement nor the "slightly used" requirement.

If you are looking for 50CC and up you might have better results at FG.

Just get one of the 3D Hobby Shop foamies.  I have flown all of them, and the new 38 inch AJSlick is the best, and I own and fly a 104 inch AJSlick powered by a DA-120 which definitely is GS!  You can do every 3D maneuver in the book and when you crash it, it is no biggie.

We are having a get together for giant scale 3d at www.jaxrc.com this saturday, bring it up.


Y'all probably don't want to hear that I just picked up a 50CC Red Aero MSX-R, DA50 and a pipe, Hitec digis, A123's, Smart Fly Optical kill, and an AR7000 reciever, with about 6 flights on it, for 700 in Orlando last Saturday. Stick a bind plug and gas in.
