I would also recommend using pop cans instead of food cans to get better 90 degree alignments...look at the cans to see what I am referring to, the food cans have a ridge on top and bottom

Anybody know if these parts would work with this? Looks like khen is all out of everything.
Exceed Rocket 2205-1800KV
Exceed Proton 12A ESC
Solar Servo

I know three of these servos are about 4.5g total weight heavier the combo, but I've got 'em.

Kinda don't want to order the kit and have no parts to build it.

Just wanting to let everyone know that I made a major goof this month with ordering.

In my excitement on the upcoming launch of our new Slicko II, I forgot to order inventory for our power combos.

I am sincerely sorry for the mix-up...Kevin is looking into a quick solution to offer in the meantime. I think he might need to be looking for a new inventory/administrator too. I am sure he is not to happy with me at the moment :/. Probably doesn't want to fire his wife, or at this point maybe he does!

Sorry for all the mix-up and thanks for your continued service!

That power setup would work good. Sorry for the mix up.

No way, It's not your fault! We still would have been fine if the manufacture/supplier didn't delay our shipment. They are really busy now days and can't seem to keep up.

Anyhow, as Andria mentioned I am working on getting stuff in for power combos in the meantime.

I'm thinking I'll see wait a bit to see what you come up with and how soon. Your customer service has been great and one of the reasons I come back and don't mind spending money with you.

Thanks. Because you didn't have to tell me that setup would work.

Looks like a build mistake. looks to me like the 2 has the
aileron servo mounted upside down, so it should have
been installed before gluing the bottom on.

Glade your plane arrived! More pictures will be up within an hour. The servo goes in later. It slides in fine with the bottom glued.

I have some Axoing motors and 12A ESC's on the way. These are the motors that were in the original Slicko Power Combo. They should be here in 4-5 days. Thank You!
