3D Hobbyshop's long awaited 59" AJ Slick is here:
Price: $299.99

The 59" Slick is Andrew Jesky's latest Slick design. Inspired by the full scale Slick540 aerobatic aircraft, AJ has developed a world class medium-sized aerobatic aircraft that can take a wide variety of electric power systems. The 59" is extremely lightweight but very strong with carbon landing gear system. It has a long canopy hatch design that allows lightweight packs to be run without any hassles strapping them into the airframe.

Anyone know how long the fuse will be? I am going to guess I will have to decide between this and the 72". Darn small car making me pick my favorites .

Reserved for specs, info.

#7 SalamSyed Feb 22, 2011 01:28 PM

I will regularly update the first and second post as more information is available. Any ETA at this point?

#8 blucor basher Feb 22, 2011 01:37 PM

Yes, the container is scheduled to set sail in early March, which would put it at our warehouse at the end or March or beginning of April.

That's perfect timing and coincides with the flying season. I love summer. :)

Oh BTW, Congratulations on launching this 59" AJ Slick. I am very happy to see this is coming.

Thanks KM!

One question:
Is there truly no air exit built into your 59" or is it there in a stealthy manner?
