Gws Yellow Slowstick

Ok everyone I Just built one of the New GWS Yellow (thats right yellow slowsticks) this is one of the new version GWS slowsticks the 2 piece fiberglass rod comes pre drilled with hoses so it goes together quick, Elevator and rudder foam are now a new thicker more sturdy foam, the wings at least mine seem to be a little thicker then the last red (new slowstick kit I just bought) the new kit also comes with a slighty larger set of control rods they are thicker and dont flex as much (they also in clude in the new kits e-z connectors) to install the control rods! everything still builds the same so I won't get into that! here are some pictures. Im charging a battery pack to madian her in about 2 hours! I put Decals on it from a GWS Tigermoth I guess we could call it the monomothslowstick!

Enjoy

Very pretty bird. I wish GWS would offer all the colors they show on the sides of the SS box. Red, blue, yellow and green.

How is the fiberglass fuge compared to the Slo-V's carbon fiber fuge? Is it the same? I find the carbon fiber to be too fragile/brittle. Busted up on very first crash..what a piece of junk.

I still like the DuBro EZ connectors. They are more easily adjustable.

Robert,

All you need to do is take a sharp xacto knife and bore out the hole slightly. I love the new connectors! No more z bends!

Tallflyer, great looking yellow SS...care to disclose the nature of the Berg problem ? I had problems with one of them, a 4L, sent it in, CC replaced it with one that gave off smoke and quit. Sent it in, CC again replaced it. Traded it to the LHS for a 4ch GWS even up. (The first one was DOA .) art

Tallflyer, at least we didn't lose airplanes !! I follow the CC site and others have had similar problems...plus what they refer to as a "sleep''....where they die in the air and usually but not always begin working again. Too sporadic for my old ticker !
Some have had good luck with them. My experience with the GWS, Hitec 555 & Micro 05S rcvrs mirrors your own. art
