    best "small" electric 3D bird for football field area

    Probably been asked many times before but will ask again. Looking for a small 3D electric 3D airplane to fly on a football field setup. Not familiar with electrics. Fly giant scale 3D stuff but looking for something simple for a "beginner" electric dude. Been flying the Chip Hyde Vision (old school) and GP Reactor 1.60. Both have long tail moments and easy to 3D. Don't care about scale/cowls/etc. Simple and good 3D with no hassle is what I am looking for.

    Some of the EFlight micro stuff is pretty cool.  I saw the Sbach 342 micro video and it looks capable.  A fellow club member has one, but hes not into 3D.  It does have plenty of power and is a fast plane when you want to go fast.

    RE: best


    A lot of people will hate me saying this coz it stops people buying kits. But hey, you don't need a kit man for 50-80 bucks, just buy some depron or epp foam and build your own. You can design your own, or build one from a free plan. The hard part, is choosing the right plan, otherwise you will be held back by a flying pig.
    I have a 700mm plane which can fly in a very tight space, is a very good flyer indoors and outdoors. It is called 'Slave', yes becoz it will do what u want it to do). I have a video of it flying which i made yesterday, if anybody wants a plan, i will try and upload it here, i am not that clever on computers so i need instructions. The plans are very basic, but detailed and accurate.
    Note EPP would be the best choice if you are wanting to learn 3D and/or fly in tight spaces, this plan needs 6mm thick foam).

    $100 with everything except the Rx and Batts...big enough to fly well in even moderate winds, easily flyable in areas smaller than you're talking, quite 3D capable, and EPP so crashes aren't going to end your day.

    Another great little plane is the UMX Beast with the built in gyro. You'd swear you were flying a 40 sized plane. Handles a 10 mph wind tith no problems.

    Parkzone Visionaire. Just bind, level your control surfaces and fly. Even though its larger than a foamie, it flys slow and can easily be flowing inside a football field.

    I'm with him ^^ The VisionAire is the best 3D foam airplane I've ever had. I put a Hacker A30 on mine and use 4S with a 13x65 prop. The thing is a BEAST! Flies incredible fast or slow. I fly mine in a baseball diamond with no probs.
