Description

The Hummer EPP 3D is a high performance profile foamy that is sure to please. With its airfoiled wing, huge control surfaces, indpendent aileron servos and lightweight construction, this model is ready to perform extreme aerobatics. Hovering, knife edge, harriers, flat spins and more, this plane can handle it all!

The Hummer's ultra-durable EPP construction and carbon fiber reinforcement means that it can really take a beating. This is ideal for pilots looking to practice 3D manuevers without the fear of destroying an expensive balsa model. 

The Hummer EPP arrives in kit form, so you will need to add your own electronics. The build is straight forward. A detailed assembly manual w/photos is included.

Simply add your own 1000KV brushless motor, 1047 slow fly prop, 20A ESC, 4 x 9g servos, 4ch radio system, 3S lipoly battery and your ready to fly!

Perfect plane for affordable price. Easy to build ( took about 3 hours of lazy job). Super flying.
The building instruction is not very complex, shows some random pictures but there is almost not possible to make a mistake during the build . This plane was the first plane with ailerons , which has flown my son and I believe I could not make a better choice. Ideal to gain some flying experience. Thanks for that Hobbyking!

Instructions are small photocopied pages with quite difficult to follow instructions. The supplied hardware was replaced with stronger parts.
The wings will flex a bit too much with the existing twin carbon rods and largish batteries (1000+).
Used a 2030 1000Kva and a 10x6 prop., plane will hover at 2/3 - 3/4 throttle
Overall I am happy with this as a low cost introduction to 3D flying

Instructions are fine, if anything is not covered it is obvious anyhow if you are not rushing and doing an afternoon build. Built mine as time allowed over 3 weeks, using uhp por, medium ca, weldbond. carbon spars supplied were warped and f low resin quality so replaced with quality 2mm stock. Easy build, quality epp, even most of the supplied hardware is usable. More a wild sport flyer than real 3D machine, but not built for speed.
Cant go wrong with the Hummer, its a gem, very forgiving, nice waterfall with snap flap, slow inverted spins, harrier. 1000-1300MAh plenty of juice for HK donkey 1100KVA combo with 10x5E or sf prop, loads of thrust. We should all buy another before they dissapear entirely. CG of 130mm from LE turns out to be right on my rig.

The good:
The price.

The not so good:
Really awful instructions. Only found one YouTube video by googling that really was any help at all.
I never really figured out the plywood horns. Ended up using third party horns for the rudder and elevator. Did use the plywood horns for ailerons however the wire rods really are a bad idea. The was left over carbon fiber rod so I glued the wire connecting rods to the carbon fiber and re-enforced the whole assembly with Kevlar.

The craft is very tail heavy. Mounting the rudder and elevator servos in the aft of the plane just makes matter worse. I move these two servos forward by several inches.

A Park Flyer 480 will not fit this craft without modifications. This took me about an hour figure out how to do this since some motor leads exit the motor housing at 90 degree not 45 as do Turngy motors. In the end it all worked out but an extra hour of build time.

No collars to keep the wheels on?

Yet to fly:
The build of the wing was straight forward but I thought I'd tear the fuse apart getting the built up wing into the fuse. All looks pretty good, now waiting for good weather to see how this craft performs.

Easy build. put it together fully in one evening. This is my first 3D type RC purchase. So far so good. BTW add glue or wheel retaining collars as the wheels flew off on my first land. no damage and easy fix. Tough little aircraft...looking forward to lots more fun with it. Enjoy

Good plane to learn 3D!

Good point:
- Very stable even with some wind
- Flashy colours very visible during flight
- Easy and fast build, all is included (linkage stopper, push rob, wheels)

2 negative points:
- A lot of elevator mixing during knife edge (maybe due to my lack of experience?)
- Flex tail, so I added 2 carbon rod from elevator to fuselage

Setup (Hover at 60pcnt throttle):
- 2830 850 Kv
- Turnigy plush 18A
- 11"x4.7" slow fly
- 1000 mAh (more than 6 min)
- 504grs without landing gear
- CG 130 mm for 3D (120 mm tested but not good)

Love it! I so wish I bought one of these months ago. Really good fun to fly and I've had some really bad landings with mine and it's survived well. My biggest TIP is to use a metal geared servo in the rudder, it needs it for knife edging. Oh and if I was to build another, I'd use hot glue, it would make the build time much, much faster and just be as strong.

I like this plane, but it is anything but unbreakable. If you build this model, pay special attention the carbon rods. it is important to glue them in securely. I learned the hard way.
