3mm gap! Do you ever see any flutter problems?

Yeah sorry- I was mentioning how 35 would be better than 60 aerodynamically for roll rate, I initially thought you reccomended 60 as a good setting for roll rate. Read it all wrong!

nope.though I never fly very fast,I cruise around at like 1/4 throttle and and play.It's just too make sure the bevel doesn't catch and restricts travel.nothing more irritating than that

I think that I can not get more than 40* bz it's max mechanical aileron throw already. But I will try! And I was little bit wrong with a servo arms I use just 25mm of 35mm servo arm length.

I ordered some supplies from Hobbypartz and decided to grab a couple Solar D658's since they were two for under $20 with a discount. After reading some posts, I think I'll probably skip these entirely (mainly because of their size) and just go with Savox. I have an SH-0255 in the elevator of my EF 48" Extra and I think it is a very good servo.

JetPlaneFlyer, as you experimented with the solar servos, are they any good? I have a couple of the D654's in another plane. Out of four of them, two work very nicely, the other two were terrible and almost caused me to lose a plane. Probably should've just bought another lipo instead of these, but it's fun to try new things

Anyone seen this? HK has a new slick. A 3DHK slick. The product ID is "AJ_Slick". I am sure it is pure coincidence

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...Balsa_ARF.html


I'll consider this after I total my current HK slick.

I hate to burst your bubble, but incase you didn't realize, this is the same as the 3DHS Slick. What we all said had absolutely no influence on this one.

Checked it! They're reading our minds or at least forum! It's not reconstructed HK Slick, It's really new 3DHK Slick with new frame disign just what I dont like its colour theme and why they reduce wingspan but rest is ok!

You are right, it's a direct copy of the 51" 3DHS AJ Slick. Except for colour scheme it looks to be identical right down to the last tiny detail. Some people might get a bit upset (understandably).

Ya, upset at the fact that they paid 3x as much for the same thing.
