3D flat foamie builds are time consuming. Everything has to be super light so hot glue is out of the question. I just built my Galaxy a couple weeks ago and it was fun but not for a beginner that's for sure. I am soooo happy with the way it flies though. Hobbyking has a lot of good 3D or at least sport planes that would be a great review topic. I doubt they will do any Great Planes (electrifly) reviews though since they are not a sponsored product.
I agree, the amount of information on my Galaxy instructions was minimal at best. I would do several things different now that I've been through one. Mostly for durability reasons. So far I haven't crashed it so it hasn't been a problem yet.
Interesting article. I had looked at those before but heard bad things from people who had them. I guess they weren't very durable.
My issues with the galaxy were the extensive use of carbon and no lengths or really any guidance at all on how to apply them. There were pictures but only from one angle, and the carbon came in two sticks and you have to figure out the lengths on your own. It also didn't show how to apply the doublers and I didn't figure it out until I had done them all wrong lol. I have no complaints about the way it flies, I just think some more tips would have really helped. I know I'll do a much better job next time if there is one.
