Hey guys! Have fun with the slick...I know I had a lot of awesome flights with that thing. Was kinda bummed I had to sell it , but I'm glad to see it go to a good home and be built and flown the way it should be. I'm looking forward to picking up one of those 79" Slicks sometime this summer. Not sure when it'll be released or when SupaTim might be getting some. But I do plan on getting one and if I can make the room , I'll try stuffing a EF 78" Extra as well. Between MX and flying my planes....should be a fun summer!
Chris , I'll keep checking in on this thread and see your progress. What's your first plan of attack? You guys figure out what motor you may be putting in it?
Right on! Very easy plane to get used to. This thing even at 19+lbs flew extremely light on the wings. I told Chris that it could of actually had another 1 - 2lbs and probably still feel really good. I had a BME 58cc on the front and had to move some stuff forward just to get it to balance correctly. On high rates and full deflection , the damn thing just about turns around inside itself...pretty incredible bird to fly. Hoping my 79" will fly like that.
Btw...I haven't heard anything from Tim yet. No big deal though , as I'm not ready to buy one yet anyways.
