57" Extra 330SC and 59" Slick comparison

I have the 57" Extra 330SC (Great plane!) and I am putting a new 59" Slick together.

For all who have both planes please specify what you like about both planes and describe the flight envelope of the 59" Slick, i.e., hover, harrier, elevator, knife edge, flat spins, blenders, parachutes, walls, tumbles, rolls, etc. I am especially interested in how the 59" Slick tracks and rolls compared to the 57" Extra 330SC.

I plan to initially run a "light" 4S set up on the 59" Slick with a Motrolfly 3620-750 and later go to a "heavy" 6S set up with a Torque 4016T-500. When I go to the "heavy" set up will I need to move my rudder servo to the tail of the plane in order to get a neutral to slightly nose heavy CG on the 59" Slick?

I want to get good to great 3D out of the 59" Slick, but I am more interested in the pattern/precision capabilities of the plane. That's why I plan to use a neutral to slightly nose heavy center of gravity in the 59" Slick.

Thanks for your help and expertise.
