No. Use the pull-pull location and you'll be fine.

Thank you for the info Bryan!

Guys couple of questions for you. I bought my slick in Nov this past winter but just getting around to building it now. It's the newer style hybrid elec/gas 71" version. Just have a few questions as the build manual is still from the old 70" version so I'm not sure what the latest build info is for the newest version. I'll be running my 12s 3300mah setup on the 4330 @ 216kv from Ken, similar to Bryan's setup as I mentioned a few months back. Just been to busy to assemble it all!

1. Just wondering pull-pull or push-pull for the rudder servo? I'm unsure what will balance out best with the 12s / 216kv setup.

2. How did you guys center the included electric motor box assembly on the firewall? There's no marking holes or templates as to how to attach it on the firewall. I may just manually have to measure it out which isnt a big deal, just wondering what you guys did.


Sorry for all the questions, its just hard to know without spending the time because the manual is for the old 70".

Thanks,
Travis

I just finished mine and maddened last Saturday

I put the rudder servo in the tail I using a motrofly 4330 on 6s but im also running a separate Rx battery no BEC mine balances with the battery right in the middle of the battery tray or maybe a little AFT of the middle of the tray RX battery is on the motor box

looking at the front of the plane the motor box goes all the way over to the right the DLE 30 templet they give you with the slick is really close as a guide

My buddy just finished his 71 with the 4330-216 running 2x3300 Eco Power batts that weigh 570g each. Ran the rudder in pull/pull and balanced perfectly with flight packs right up against the spar. He does have a separate 3.5oz rec batt mounted right behind the spar.

See pic
Hope this helps

Did he get a weight of the newer kit with the 3300s? If it came in as light as my buddies 74 edge, the 3300s would be a option for me.

11 lbs 3oz
His 3300s are 60C and not the lightest so you could get it down to 11.0 with lighter batts and sub 11 without the rec pack and extra wire loom, etc

Arg... I like my slick under 10.5lbs (preferably10.3lbs), so I guess I'll stick to my kit and 12s 2600. I just don't care for the negative low and slow with the slick at anything heavier. Thanks for checking.
