This is going to be cute: 37.5-in Full-fuse Slick from Skywing

Hi guys,

It looks like Skywing is testing the waters by developing a 37.5-in full-fuse Slick. I have a few photos to show you. I am told that the prototype has been flown and Skywing is happy with the result.

Cheers,

feda

I'm with Steve on this one, I'm dying to see a 55-in Slick, Edge, MXS, etc.

But I do have to say that I like the paint schemes on these planes ten times over the new 48-MXS and the upcoming Edge.

It looks like the bottom of the elevator is black in the third picture. Hmmm.

Seriously, are the ever going to do another 55" beside the Yak? I'd love an MXS or a Slick or an Edge. What I'd really love to see would be a Laser, man would that be sweet.

Now I like the paint scheme on this, hopefully the new Skywing Edge will also have a paint job more like this.

@stevelmaa and @jetinteriorguy:

The next 55-in plane will be a Slick. It's under development.

Cheers,

Hey!!! what about me? I said I want one too... lol

Anyway, that's GREAT news! It's exactly what I was hoping for and will be getting one for sure! I really hope they get the paint scheme right though.

Hi Gian,

I've just got a photo from Skywing. The new Edge looks hot!!!

To me, this is the best looking Skywing plane so far. The racer style canopy, SWEET!

I'll put more photos of this plane in the Edge thread when I get them.

Cheers,

feda
