3DHS 48" EPP Extra

Introducing the 3D Hobby Shop 48" EPP Extra!

We debuted this design at the 2011 Holiday Electric Fly and RC Expo in Geneva Ohio this weekend:

The 48" EPP Extra is the first in a new line of aircraft from 3D Hobby Shop.  Built at the world's premier EPP production facility, the 48" employs built up EPP foam structure with

  • carbon backbone
  • carbon wing tube
  • removable airfoiled wings
  • carbon stiffened wings, fuse and tail
  • SFG's
which all combine to give superb flight performance and serious durability.

Recommended setup includes:

  • 130g 870kV Omega motor
  • 45-55A ESC
  • 4- HS65MG servos
  • 3S 2100-2200 mah lipo 

This rugged and versatile design is great as your next step up from flat EPP foam planes, a fantastic practice plane, or your go-to hardcore aerobatics plane, with extremely easy 3D and good speed and handling in gusty winds.  Available now at 3DHobbyShop.com!

Foam Fest Report

What a great event!  Just look at this fantastic facility:

2011 Foam Fest

We're packing up our foamies and heading to the Flying Giants' Indoor Huckfest this weekend at the Holiday Electric Fly in Geneva, Ohio.  There's going to be several contests, including a 3D smack down- we can't wait!

Hope to see you there!

Lots of Slickness

AJ Slicks are back in stock!  This includes the 51"71" and 42" and 89", all in the newest color schemes:

Visit the product pages at 3DHobbyShop.com for all the details, including combo offers for motors, ESCs, and more!

Congrats, AJ!

Our congratulations, once again, go out to Andrew Jesky!

AJ is the 2011 Tucson Aerobatic Shootout Invitational Champion- woot!

Andrew's hard work, talent and determination has delivered an amazing year: USA F3A Nationals Champion, Bronze medalist at the FAI World Championship, and now winning Tucson!  Congrats, Andrew- we love to watch you fly.

Oktoberfest 2011

Oktoberfest 2011 was fantastic!  Absolutely perfect flying weather, good food, and lots of Flying Low!

The Byper made its first public appearance:

Thanks so much to everyone at the Austin Radio Control Association for their hospitality and a great event!

The 3DHS Grand Re-Opening!

We've (mostly) finished the move, and the 3D Hobby Shop online store is open for business!

The entire site has been redesigned and included some brand new products, including the 34" EPP Edge 540:

These are in stock and shipping now!

The EPP 34" Edge 540 is an indoor/outdoor aerobatic aircraft designed for fun, value, durability and high performance.  Like our 33" EPP Extra, the 34" Edge can be crashed many times without damage, but the Edge adds a complete landing gear system, additional stiffening, and aerodynamics focused on a wider speed range.

As you can see, it makes the perfect backyard flier!

We also now have great new combo items for many of our airframes, including motors, ESCs, and servos.  Check them out!

Sneak Peek

As we settle into our new warehouse here in Pennsylvania, we thought we'd give you a sneak peek at the new 3D Hobby Shop biplane, designed by Scott Stoops and currently being flight tested.

It's sized to use the same gear as the 51" Slick, and with a few more changes, will be coming soon from 3DHobbyShop.com!
