All I know is what Chris said in his interview with Fred on Flightpass from the Toledo show. According to Chris they are already on the water headed this way. A quick summary is as follows:

5s to 8s lipos.
Two (one per side) mini servos on the elevators. I'm assuming Hitec HS-225MG. Three regular hi-torque metal gear servos for rudder and ailerons.
They have two of them flying at SEFF this week so I'd expect Fred at Flightpass to have plenty of video.

Hopefully Chris will fill in all the details after he returns from SEFF.

Nice Freddy! Can't wait to check it out when you get it...

I only wish I was going to SEFF this year. IMO....70" is the perfect size for me! It's big enough to fly like a BIG plane, but small enough to fit into my Mazda 3. I had been looking at their 78" Extra EXP, but I think I'm going to hold off and see about this 70" Extra.....as I really don't have room for the 78".

Thanks IRG.. :)

you are right about the size only 8 inches makes a lot of difference with respect to space and electronics. I'm sure one of my ex-girlfriends woudn't not have mind the extra inches :)

Seen the interview on flightpass,was wondering when somebody would start a thread. Looking forward to all the specs,pics especially of battery access and some flight video would rock!.

#11 Safety Hawk Apr 23, 2010 01:19 PM

I'm hoping that I can run two 4S 4000mah packs in series. That's would be sweet. I'm hoping I can do a similar setup to my 70" Slick.
