Great sports plane. Much better than the Brio. Reminds me of the old Kaos.

Sheesh. I've been leaning toward a cheaper foam plane for my 1st 3D plane, was kinda figuring on an Airfoilz full fuse Yak or Extra, then I make the mistake of reading a bunch of things about this plane, and seeing some vids, and man this thing is awesome. I've only flown foam planes before, although I've gotten pretty good about not breaking my PZ Trojan. (50 hours on it, 40 without a crash). So I'm a bit scared of something as gorgeous as this built up beauty. But dang I want it bad! So happens I just got my "economic stimulus" money today, and it was a bit more than I calculated. I'm really teetering on the brink here guys, tell me why I shouldn't buy this plane and power package! I have a Futaba 6ex, just need another rx. So tell me why I should stick with my little foamies! Stop meeeee!

Ok so now I think I've come to my senses somewhat. I'm going to settle on a cheaper foamie 3D for maybe 6 months or so, THEN when I've abused that I'll transition to something like this plane. Doc you write so well you should get commision for your reviews! You really have me looking at 3D Hobby Shop, and the photos and videos speak for themselves. Beautiful engineering!

I just got my Yellow SHP flying on a sport setup and what a plane. This thing is just great to fly. Slows down to just about a walking pace and handles a bit of wind no problem.

Currently my "go to" plane

Glad the SHP is working well for you. I have gone back to it solely right now. Such a great flying plane and it gives you just a little more time to react if you get into trouble.

I dorked a landing the other day an finally broke my Xoar 14x7......there went $9 :p So I am running an APC 13x6.5E now, and the performance really didn't drop off at all.

I ordered mine last week and it should be here on Wednesday. I can't wait to get it built and up in the air. From what I have heard, I have a feeling that the rest of my planes are going to start gathering alot of dust once my SHP is built.

That is exactly what happens I have 6 planes currently building up a nice dust coat while the Extra SHP and the Velox get all of the flight time. Next you will be selling them off to get a Velox or Extra SR

Anything new to add about the 3DHS SHP?

I'm looking at one for my birthday.

The shp is a great plane, I have the yellow one! It still gets plunty of use. I am running the Omega 103 G motor with a 13x6.5 prop for about 500watts(with a full battery) It has plunty of power and get between 8 to 10 mins on a prolite 2600 3s lipo. Highlly recommended plane. Very gental and smooth!

All out 3D. I've owned the tYphoon 2 for two years, a couple of 3d foamies, a rich models cap232, I still fly the e-flite edge 540 bp but want a midsize, full fuse, fully capable 3D machine and from what I read at the other forum and from here this is the one. She's due in Friday.

Just flew my SHP for the first time. Needless to say I am utterly amazed by how easy it ie to fly this plane. I have full throws all the way around with no Low/high rates on my TX. So it's all-out for me from the beginning.

This thing is solid but crazy quick executions. My KE were long, low and straight. KE spins were perfect and mean. Axial rolls, loops, snaps. Everything I know to do but could never get right or make look good on my other planes...not the SHP.

Perfect!!!! This plane ROCKS!

Perfect from the get go. Took aoof in the grass after 20 feet and straight as an arrow it rose. So responsive yet predictable and gentle.

Landings are easy and uneventful so far. Can't say enough about this plane but will have fun trying.

Now you got your first taste of the 3DHS koolaid.....will not be long till you try more flavors. 51" Slick is my favorite

still in awe of this airframe...just can't believe what I can do with this plane that I could never do with the others. Not to mention that it is daring me to bring it all down to the deck. (really builds your confidence and sense of real control)

next flight up will be #7 and I have already relaxed and "figured" this plane out. No suprises ever, just stable, stable, stable!

I have wasted hundreds of dollars buying planes when all along this was the one I needed.

GO BUT THIS PLANE...you won't be sorry!

Here are a few pic of flying out on the dunes. Had a nice hover but my harrier landing on the sand needs work
