What is the deal with the new velox that is awaiting word? Mine got delivered today. Always good when a huge box arrives on the door step and the wife had no idea the money got spent.

I bet you got the same look that I got when I carried my 70 Slick into the house a few weeks ago.

Maybe I'm losing it a bit.

How do you guys lower your planes in hover, pulse the throttle and lower the stick a bit at a time or keep constant power and lower the stick. Used to do it pretty decent but lately can't lower it at all. 89 gas slick

Either one works OK...I prefer the smooth lowering of throttle on most planes.

Slightly lower the throttle. You dont want to come off of it to fast or it will fall out.

My problems with lowering it came just after this, might have something to do with it

89 slick.mov (1 min 15 sec)
