IPSmotors, one of our Team 3D Hobby Shop pilots, has put together some great build videos for most of our ARFs. You can find them here on his vimeo page.
These videos are well-made and give some great building tips for beginners and pros alike.
This is build video #1 for our 70" Slick. Check out all his build and flight videos on vimeo!
We rigged up our 87" & 103" Extras with Xerogear LED lights- they lit up the whole field at night! (Credit goes to Brian Chitty for the above pic.) Check out this video on our YouTube channel-
This vinyl will be available for the 70" Slicks as well. Great job as usual, Rob!
If you were at SEFF or the Fly-Low-In this year, you saw some of these amazing little planes fly.
By popular demand, they are now in production as a pre-painted EPP kit. To see how they fly, check out our YouTube video:
And to get one for yourself, visit 3d EPP.com!

After an amazing amount of dedication and plain old hard work, Andrew took the title this weekend at the Nationals in Muncie, Indiana.

The fun lasted well into the night, with LED & Glow sticks night fliers...
And the proof that everybody was flying low...
Already looking forward to next year!
We've already started packing the trailer with fantastic 3DHS raffle prizes, including a yellow 89" Slick ARF!!!
We'll also be debuting a brand new 3DHS plane!
MLT and Mrs. MLT cooked up a delicious supper for the 3DHS tent city on Friday night.
Scott, Andrew and Josh flew fantastic demos on Friday and Saturday. Andrew debuted the much anticipated 70" Slick- details to follow!
Except for a little rain on Saturday, the weather was perfect. We really enjoyed hanging out with and meeting so many 3DHS fans- what a great group of people! And thanks to everyone who makes SEFF possible- it's a great event, and a LOT of work goes into making it happen.
Can't wait for next year!

Scott Stoops' new 103" Extra 330 SC graced our booth in the yellow & blue color scheme. These are available now for preorder on our website.
Scott was on hand to sign copies of his book (we sold out!) He also signed some wings, and I think some 3DHS Addict's forehead...
