Yep, its all standard setup as you would for any of 3dhs, PA or EF planes. Actually easier than my PA ADX to put together.

I'm using HS85MG on the elevator, HS65MG on the rudder, MG14's on the ailerons.

Maybe the 85MG in the elevator contributes to the cg being more towards the tail.

I'm sure the other things I discussed will just need me to adjust to the plane rather than it being a bad plane.

Certainly handles a lot of violent stick work yesterday without too much complaining.
Rog, I think Dean ran a 2200mAh Nanotech which may be lighter than a 2200mAh 40c Turnigy

I just spoke with Michael Wargo and he is at the field. The latest update is that he really like it. I got some picture of my built and like everybody knows I put together this airplane overnite. Im going to include my personal opinion about HK Slick.

Hi Vince -

As I guess you have build a lot of MW's planes, what is your overall impression of the design, rigidity are there plus points and negatives that you can throw light on with regard to the build quality and general build of this plane...

Thanks

My biggest consern was the rear end. Built quality its ok for the price. The Rudd and elev mount wall is to soft. I added epoxy and CA to motor box to provide rigidity. Mike's Slick are spinning NTM Prop Drive 42-38 with a VOX 1 and produce around 3.05 Kg of thrust. One more thing that I would change is the landing gears for carbon fiber. Servos needs longer arms, sepecially elevator Overall the airplane was easy to built, Mike is very happy and impressed with the performance. No wing rockking.

How did the 42-38 motor fit within the cowl? HK is recommending 35-48 motors which are 10 mm longer. Did you have to use spacers to get the prop outside the cowl or is HK recommending motors that are technically to long to fit?

I may have missed the post but, if you can, please inform as to servos, motor, esc, and percentage throw for the ail, elev and rudd. Thanks.

Btw, can the rudd and elev mounting wall be re-enforced easily to make it stronger?

Well Mike still at the field. I used the HK 929 servos for aile. and Turnigy TGY-2216mg. for rudd and elev. For battery he used a turnigy nano-tech 4s 2200mha 45c. he already flew the slick and last night we checked the cg with the 2200 4s and balanced perfect. You still have plenty room to play with.

Can you elaborate? Maybe some pictures when you can? Did you add epoxy to strengthen it?

Thanks
Vincent

I had no problem with the cowl. The ony problem I had was the motor mount. I had to modified. I took mesurement of the motor mount, cutted two pieces of 1/16 of ply, expoy it together glue it to the back of the motor mount and drill new holes.

When you say you modified the motor mount, was this to extend it? shorten it? or make it wider?

I had worked with Michael's PA, Twisted Hobbies, HK,etc, and I alway use expoxy where the motor box connect to the firewall, in and outside. Also CA to all the joint.

I was refering to your comment about the rudd and elevator mount wall being too soft.

Thanks
