P:S: I have a 92 trader rating on the "other" site

I have 6 7955s with SWB arms that have been mounted but never flown. (2 have never been hooked up to a control surface)

I have some bills coming up and need the money.

These are the latest version and were purchased about a month ago.

Don't think it...

I have the 57" Extra 330SC (Great plane!) and now have ten flights on my 59" Slick. So far the former high school educator in me says the Extra scores an A with 95 out of 100 and the Slick scores an A with 92 out of 100 for 3D and precision.

Please specify what you like about both planes and describe the flight...

After just over a year of flying the 48" Extreme Flight Extra EXP, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the new 60" variant. The 48" has been my go-to...

How many others of you have been out at a park, a club event, family, etc.... and have people come up to you after some serious hucking and say "Wow, that plane flies crazy! I can't believe it's pretending to be a helicopter." or the like.

I've had an uncle say that about the plane being a helicopter and the...
