I got the 104 Slick airframe new back in November. I took my time with the build, slowly getting the parts. I was trying to be very meticulous. I put the DLE 111 in it with aftermarket polished aluminum mufflers. Hitec 7955s with SWB arms on all surfaces and Hitec 5665 on the throttle. Smartfly Expander Pro with Heavy Duty switches, with Spektrum AR1220 Receiver. Running 2- 2s 4000s unregulated for power and 1- 2s 2000s regulated for the ignition. 32oz Fortitude tank. I also splurged and got a Mega Pilot with Orange helmet to match. And last but not least, outfitted in S8 Vinyl Graphix. I had the Maiden flight back in the first part of January. But the winter weather has prohibited me from flying it again until just last week, late Feb.
Me and my buddy having fun hovering the 89" Slick and 50cc Yak. Another buddy of my was behind the sticks of the Quadcopter with the GoPro.
I was the feature pilot on the local morning show. Here is a link to the video footage.
At the field, deciding which one to fly first. Tough decision?

3DHS 87" Extra SHP. This is the old color scheme. I bought this airframe over a month ago from (0gravity). This plane was previously owned by (sunflyer). What a honor to be able to own and fly this plane. It's has a DLE 55cc motor with Spektrum powersafe receiver. Hitec 7955's all the way around, Fortitude tank, and Vess carbon fiber prop and spinner.
My 16month old son doing some hovering!!
Having fun at the Lake!!
57" Extra 330
I had the vinyl decals to match each other.
The Maiden flight for the new but old Slick... AHHH, I love this plane.
All I need is servos and it's ready for flight!! Put the heating iron to it and it now looks like a new plane.
My new edition to the family. I put my original FB Slick in the ground months back, and ever since I was some day wanting another. Well here she is. I got it used from (powerslave), who originally got it from Bivens. That's why this plane might look familiar.
Little Brother is complete!! Ready for maiden! Powered by Motrofly 3620 480kv motor with Castle Ice75 lite ESC and Hitec 225MG servos. Going to run it on 6s lipo with 2-3s 2200mah running in Series. Should be a blast!!
Hovering my 3DHS EPP Edge. Had a mild night in January with not much wind. What do you do? You go out side and do some 3D.
Went to the flying field yesterday and got some good flights in on the 74 Edge. There was no way I was going to pass up a day like yesterday. Jan 7, 58 degrees and sunny, with about 5mph winds. NICE!!! The 70 Sick is my buddies (Hugocraft). I think the 2 look pretty sharp tip to tip. The Edge is electric and the Slick is gas.
I added to my 3DHS fleet. Now with the 74"Edge and the 48" Edge. I can't decide which I like to fly better. The 74" just has 2 flights on it, so after I get more flights she might be my favorite.
