Whats the best 50cc 3D model

Im going to purchase a 50cc petrol model, and looking at 3DHS AJ Slick 89" Im am currently flying a CMPro Giles with an OS 200 in it, Its flys well, But man is it heavy and it flys like a heavy model, it just wont perform any of the 3d manovers that my smaller models will do. I want something that will be more floaty and will hover and handle well post stall, Is the Slick the best in the 50cc class or is there something better? regards, Justin

I've had two slicks which are both amazing but also check out the 87 extra from 3dhs and s,e the the extreme flight stuff.

I personally have the hanger9 Carden extra 50cc now and it does it all. Also have a slick and yak and sbach all 50cc.

I like the extra 300 EXP, but I'd want to put a 70cc in it if it were available when I bought it. I have 60cc and a tuned pipe instead, and still really like it. Probably just a "grass is always greener" envy of a 70cc.

Here is a better pilot than I am flying the 91" Extra. (Some of the best downlow 3D flying I've seen)

Jase Dussia used the EF 88" edge to win the king 50 this year.

All the 3DHS 50cc models are out of stock except the white 92 Edge. Lots of people liking that one though. The 74 Edge is sweet.

I fly the 74" Edge, and it's quite possibly the nicest plane I've ever had my hands on.

That Jase video is so awesome. I mean killer 3D and old school metal, it simply doesn't get any better than that!

+1 for the 89" Slick. 3D is easy with this one.

nothing flies like a slick. i have owned both extreme flight and 3dhs and to be fair they both make good planes but the slick is the most forgiving platform.

if customer service is important to you then be sure to do your homework and research any plane before you buy

i've only flown one 50cc so can't compare against others. But it absolutely rocks. So forgiving and yet capable. Big fan of the slicks.
