Learning to fly 3D

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I currently have a 3D hobby shop 71" AJ Slick and I am wanting to learn to fly 3D.

I do not want to use this plane to learn on as it is expensive if something were to go wrong trying to do a maneuver.

Can I please get some info on some 3D planes that I can use to learn on and then when I get good at flying 3D I can move to the 71" Slick.

Preferably would like to learn with electric and I currently fly a super sportster 60 and just have the need to learn this other type of flying.

Re: Learning to fly 3D

imo - just get any old profile 3d foamie. They're not great if there's much wind, but on those calm days they're a fantastic carefree way of learning 3d.

Otherwise, if you want something a bit more versatile (and a bit more breakable), I'd suggest the Multiplex acromaster. It flies great and takes a bit of a beating.

Re: Learning to fly 3D


pick one of these. They'll perform every 3d maneuver in the book, but stay together for the inevitable learning crashes.

I had the extra. Flew the snot out of it. I wish I never sold it now haha

Check out bone doc 3d training videos on you tube. Lots of good help there.
