Size reference pic,i have only flown the Crack Yak a couple times,but do not own one....so i took one of my foamies that is the same size,and put it next to my Yak55.......Bigger planes fly better,and depron will fly MUCH better then EPP.....Sorry,just the way it is.

Yeah that's the big thing for me too GMoney. Mike's service is what sets him apart. Yes, his foamies fly very well, but the way he treats his customers is why he earns my business.

While I agree with everything everyone said, I still think EPP is better for a beginner. And I think the 32" TH Edge is a little better 3D trainer. It's a little more forgiving than the CY. The DW does have an advantage in the wind, it's bigger, heavier and stiffer, but I've flown both the TH Edge and CY and while you can't fly precision in 10mph you can have a lot of fun.
Customer service is great with both companies.

3Flyguy, I'll send you a link

Hit the nail square on the head with that one...

Secondly, is it suggested to get their combo packs or get the parts elsewhere. If I should get the parts elsewhere, where and what? I have a Spektrum dx6i. I have no clue what parts I would need as I said I'm new to building. Any info I left out to get you to answer, please let me know. Thanks!
I'd say you should start with TH...EPP is much more suitable for learning 3D and TH is one stop shop for all the proper components for their models.

...Twisted Hobbys customer service is right up there with the best, if I may add. Brad would do absolutely whatever it takes to please his customers, no worries in that department what so ever.

+1

Depron lasts a couple crashes, while EPP lasts for hundreds of crashes. The Crack Yak is the stiffest, most crisp flying EPP plane I have ever flown.
and TH service is great and they ship fast.

I have a crackyak,sbach & xtra slick & they all fly great.Ive slammed the yak face first into concrete,swapped motors,added welders adhesive & it fly same as before.I love the way they all fly,feels like a lot bigger plane to me & does the majority of 3d moves that bigger planes do.I flew mine in 15 mph winds yesterday with no issues.Ive never owned a dw plane but I can tell you the th planes are the deal,Ive added leds to all of them & fly almost every night.I also like the fact that they can go anywhere I go.Really easy to transport.

+1 And Brad's customer service at Twisted Hobbys is second to none.

I ordered a new Crack Pitts bipe at 8:00 PM . It shipped the next morning at 6:30 AM. Very quick to respond to emails and phone calls too.

The EPP is almost indestructible. And the TH planes fly awesome.

Need help from electric guys!
I have owned one electric plane in my life and it was a parkjet.
It came with a motorfly 2210 _1700 kv motor with 20 amp esc.

Is there a Twisted hobby epp foamy 3d plane - that this combo qould fit nicely with?
i have tried looking but seems like everyone measures motors on a different system and that before you even get into weight/choice measure and conversions.. so confusing|
