Guys, just wanted to give a big thanks for all your orders on our new Extra Slick. We have not seen such an demand for an airframe in house before to which I have a feeling there will be quite a few at E-Nall this year. They are almost sold out though we do have a few more coming in but at the rate they are selling we can not guaranty when we will have more in stock after the next smaller shipment comes in. The new 3DBuster is going to ship this week or early next, they are available as per-orders as of right now, this one is going to be crazy fun. And also we have the new Edge for you guys which will follow after the 3DBuster.

Thanks again and we are very please to hear you guys are enjoying you Extra Slicks. We wish we could make E-Nall but we look forward in seeing and hearing your enjoyment of the event.

Is this the smaller Edge you referred to earlier? Or larger? Any specs?

Glad I picked up a replacement for this for the future. Really enjoying the one I'm flying now. Rarely by the same plane twice, especially while one is still flying, but its good to know I'll have a back up.

Good thing I was flying the Slick today, bad case of dumb thumbs. Cracked the right wing at the wing root twice and broke the motor mount. Wing was easy, just a gob of Welders and good as new. For the motor mount first I stuck the ply back together as good as I could and soaked it with ca, then I just added a couple of layers of fiberglass cloth and soaked it with thin ca and let it set. Then I just cut out the center hole for the motor shaft and put it all back together again and it flies like new. I was getting some weird ground swirls from the wind which didn't help either. Gotta love this plane and the durability.

Just pulled the trigger on this one and can't wait to get it in. We have a big fly in this weekend and can't wait to show it off.

Lately this is the only plane I have been wanting to fly. It's just so convenient to leave it in the car and stop for quick flights. It works perfectly for the reasons I got it, flies great, very durable, convenient, and now that soccer season is in full swing it works well in the limited spaces that are available for flying. This time of year it's very hard to find anywhere to fly, every open field is used for soccer it seems like every available hour of the day.

Hi everyone, I was lucky enough to get a pull on a fellow club members Extra Slick this weekend and all I can say is that this plane is amazing. I fly mostly giant scale gassers and usually stay away from smaller aircraft especially foam, but this plane flys so "big".

Signed,
Very Impressed

p.s. ordering tonight

I'm running the 30A ESC from TH on my Yak-55 and SU-29. Is there any reason to go with the 40A on the XS?

It looks like the 40A is about 16 grams heavier. I was initially running 2200 mAH lipo's on both planes, but now I prefer the 1550's and I like the lighter feel.
