3DHobbyShop 51" Andrew Jesky SLICK
I don't know about you guys, but I love how my AJ Extra as well as how my 3DH planes fly and the amount of abuse they can take. So when I found out that AJ is working with 3DH.... I was ecstatic. Here's the low down I've gotten from Mr. Peanut himself.

Notes from the Head Peanut –
Andrew has designed a fantastic airplane for us. When we started this project, Andrew’s design goal was to produce an airplane with all the performance and features of a giant-scale plane in a medium-electric size. He wanted high-quality hardware, a strong design, very easy assembly – and this ARF delivers all that – along with stunning flight performance. No rock harrier, excellent snapping performance, powerful rudder…it’s all here in the AJ Slick. Watch for HD video of the Slick at SEFF on Fred Midgett’s Flightpass video site.
The Slick is expected to arrive into our warehouse in early September. The retail price is expected to be in the $219 range including custom wing bags. More news to come!

Cant wait to see the seff coverage :D .
Oh man!!!!! This is almost cruel........
Oh no! not fair, I have resisted the Extra SR, we have had such bad weather, I have not even had the chance to fly my Velox, and I thought I was safe from having to buy yet another 3DHS plane and now they do this, its just not fair :D
I think you're safe for now :). If I recall correctly from my conversation with Ben, they're currently in production, but I don't think there's enough self control to be able to prevent any 3DH koolaid junkies (not to mention the general public) from drooling and wanting one :D.
... Isn't MLT our spy over at SEFF? He's posting some great pictures from there. What a good way to provide Father / Daughter bonding time :D.
Secret agent MLT67,the Kool-Aid Brotherhood is looking forward to any and all declassified 3dhs photos,videos etc you can get back to the rest of us from the field :D . More operatives are on the way,''Dont Spill The Kool Aid Yet'' is the secret code word... if your captured tell them nothing. The Kool-Aid Brotherhood is counting on you to secure any and all information about these secret planes and there 3D capabilitys etc :D .
The "Secret" is safe with me until Agent 003DHS gives the order....
Good thing this message isn't self destructing in 10 seconds :D.
I've seen this new beauty in person and can attest to Ben's comments listed above in Josh's first post.
Of course what's even better is that Drew was on the sticks (that dude rocks). :cool:
Prepare yourself junkies, this one is going to blow you away.
This is indeed a dream com true. I have always loved the particular flying "style" of the AJ Extra. Mix that with the "style" of the Stoops/Fisher planes and produce them with with 3DHS innovation, quality and attention to detail. Oh man...
Without prying too much, can you tell us what size this one is?
And will they be available at SEFF to buy them on the spot????
correct you will be seeing nothing but prototype abuse at seff---roughly 90 days until they are delivered---trust me it will be worth it.
