This last run of Cloudbreakers, poppy holy cow, massive glide and distance with good stable flight. I am working one in and it just keeps getting better, but not flippy.

My DD3 isn't a Cloudbreaker, but it sure seems to fly as you describe. Big dome too. More dome than probably any star Destroyer I've seen. Literally that perfect 12, 5, -1, 2 flight.... where the disc actually holds the high speed turn for a while before fading. Most Destroyers don't do that.

Today I acquired a DD3 cloudbreaker in a trade. It weighs 167 and has a flat, blizzard-textured wing - reminiscent of the 2017 philo destroyers. It also has a very healthy pop-top.

After a lysol treatment, I hucked it a few times today. Very, very nice disc. If I could find more with this shape, they could challenge my destroyers in my bag. Good glide, some turn, and a nice forward fade. Less dumpy than a destroyer. Flat rips were getting right about 400.

Anyone else throw these flat, straight, blizzard wing cloud breakers? My buddy has a max weight cloud breaker with a more convex shaped wing to it, and it flies more like a PD2. I'd have to hand pick these to buy more.

The DD3 I threw sounds as you describe, however mine isn't a Cloudbreaker. S line 175g. Really nice, mellow flight. It held high speed turn for a long time before fading fairly gently. Longer and glidier than most star Destroyers I've seen. Big dome too.

I wouldn't be surprised if the DD3 has some inconsistency like Destroyers do. I've only thrown the one, but I really liked it.

Looking for a new distance driver. Anyone have insight into DD3 v Barsby Scorpius v Zeus ? I know they're basically all destroyer clones/old destroyer molds. Just don't want a roast beef of a disk on my hand. Looking for something with that nice turn out of the box but always fades back.

DD3 isn't going to turn without 450+ feet of average power. I can probably throw mine 425 on my best day and it's not turning on a flat rip. It will hold hyzer too, no flip up.

The echo line has turn right out of the box. They were a very limited run. I would look elsewhere.

The Falcon is pretty nice, easy to control, turns out of the box, and it's fast and long.

If you can hand pick destroyers or DD3s, look for the ones with the flat wings.

I've got 6 DD3 now and none have these wings, I bought them all online though so I would second the advice here.

But I still wouldn't expect much turn without 425+ feet of power. I'd encourage you to look at a different mold.

I used to bag lighter 160-168 star destroyers with the flat wings for that nice S-curve distance shot

The echo DD3 appears to be closer to that stability.
