The Flash is an improvement of the original 3D trainer that used to be produced under the same name. Although the main parameters remained the same, the model was totally re-engineered for easier and straightforward build. The model, which was originally designed as all-around 3D trainer capable of anything you might ask from it, was re-introduced after concentrated demand from our customers. You will appreciate the forgiving characteristics and smooth, linear response of this model - it will make your learning new 3D maneuvers a breeze.
Those that are familiar with the previous 39” models will appreciate the new hardware and construction methods with adjustable push rod assemblies EPP bracing techniques for easy assembly. While creating a new ground up air-frame the duel aileron servos were re-located to create a plush/clean look. The over all flight envelope has increased greatly giving a sense of unreal control authority and increased roll rate was also achieved with the addition of outer counter balance tabs. This model was designed for the pilot wanting to learn the “next step” and also those who choose a balsa 3d model alternative. * Spinner sold separately *

Just had to add some more comments about this little bird. I have now run about 15 batteries through her and have her fined tuned. This plane tracks so well! I can do almost any 3D maneuvers, expect rolling circles well. I'm working on them and the flash has
been a big help in getting the circle
and roll much better. According to the AMA site section about learning 3D, rolling circles are the hardest maneuver to master. So as I said in my previous review, I just ordered the other color, the "Rain." Just can't have too many 5 star planes.

Well pleased with this little bird. Not only does great 3D, but tracks very well. The only change I made was to mount the aileron servos 5 inches out from the fuse side and
made a cut out to mount. This is to help even the force for the length of the aileron.....then covered the pre-cut holes in fuse side with 1/32" ply to strengthen. Otherwise the build is more simple than some of the other Twisted Hobbies planes. (builds like the Hacker Edge V540's) Used 20A ESC, 22/12/1250 mtr with 10x4.5 slofly prop, (gives 190 watts @ 20 amps at 12.4 v) 1000 mah 3 cell, and 12g metal gear servos. Flying weight came in at 16.1 oz. I get 5 minute flights doing constant 3D flying. Sport flying going easy can give
6 to 6 1/2 minutes. I recommend it,
and eventually will probably buy the other color scheme called the Rain.
The build was easier and more straightforward than the other RC factory 39"s I've built. Fewer steps and some improvements. Not a fan of the clevis design. Much too fussy.
This is a really nice plane which flies differently for me than either my TH Edge or Crack Yak. I feel it tracks better and draws better lines. Precision moves like point and slow rolls are easy and consistent. Low and slow 3D is outstanding and really stable. One area where it is a little behind the other 39"s is in flipping moves, like knife edge pushes (Vortex). However KE spins look great and are very consistent. All in all, if you have some of the other 39" offerings this one is still really worth getting, as it has a unique and very cool feel. Don't let the 3D trainer thing throw you. While it can be that, it is also a super precise and capable freestyle platform for experienced flyers.
