Slick Maiden

The rain initially held off long enough to maiden the Slick/Neu Combo. Only manged to get 2 flights due to an advancing storm, the wind was gusting 10-15 MPH at 90 degrees to the runway which added to the excitement.

both flight went off without a hitch although I did have the CG too far back for the first. The Slick handled the wind with out a problem, harriers both upright and inverted were rock free the knife edge it show a little coupling but I won't know for sure until I get the CG dialed in for me.

The Neu performed flawlessly, power was right at 1820 Watts for 82 Amps running a Xoar 18x8, Prop RPM was 7935 (please, more people post RPM's it a useful indicator). The Slick would hover right at center stick, just where I like it! Used around 2900mAh on a 7 Min 3D/IMAC flight.

Thanks Andrew and Ben for what will sure to become a classic.
