Well, I can see why TH has such a great rep! I really did not expect to hear anything until early next week, but Brad called this morning.... Great guy, and sounds like my Slick shipped on the 15th, but USPS may not have scanned it on the way out. I now have a tracking number (which shows "electronic info received) and anxiously await its ariival.

Why do I have this funny feeling that Ill soon own more TH products?

It's here! There's a vaguely airplane shaped flat figure under a mound of books on my table (gluing the spar in now).

Haha... yeah, I used probably 15 books with mine! LOL

I just placed an order for another slick to replace my first one.

I would keep a "close eye" on the next one! The planes aren't bad,but with all the gear onboard,it adds up! Some kid most likley had it throwing it around his back yard,then decided it didn't fly worth a crap,and threw it in the trash! Ron

This next one will never fly in that spot again even if there is zero wind! If I had my transmitter in my hand, I would have held full throttle. I would have gladly shared a bad day with them.

The build was easy and went great. Maidened it today but didn't get much flying in because the wind was being bratty. 10-15 mph, shifty and gusty.

Hoping for some calm air to get to know the slick a bit...

Flew my Slick today in the, er, uncooperative wind. It handles it really well compared to other foamies I've flown. I also got a chance to fly my friend's Edge 540 (twisted hobbys)... that thing has insane control authority, and is still really rigid. Pretty Sweeet! I wish I got some video!
