Still showing 20% chance of showers before 11am on Saturday, but it was 50% earlier so maybe that means the storms are coming sooner. Hopefully it's not too windy (43mph gusts predicted for Friday night, that would make for a fun maiden).

I don't have a slick for the picture, only an Extra or Edge

What time are you planning for the maiden? I don't know if I can get there early on Saturday.

Hurry and buy a slick I,ll let you try the 59 if you come out Sat.
Will have to wait for maiden time from Kevin,
Hope the weather holds out for Sat.

This is more exciting than maidening my own planes,

Assuming weather is ok I'll probably get out around 8AM Sat. Could certainly hold maiden till a bit later in the morning though.

I'll probably get there around noon. Certainly don't hold up the maiden for me, I'll see it fly on a later flight.

According to weather.com it should be clear and 6-7mph winds all morning, but based on past results I would not surprised to see it raining and 25mph instead

The 104 is pretty much ready to go and I plan on charging packs and coming out Sat AM

I will be there. Got a new motor and ESC for my new Drumdaddy "Ben Special" plane. I hope I will have that ready for a maiden tomorrow.

Chris got a new 42 slick.

All thanks to Mike at Hacker.

I forgot to mention I pre-ordered a 74" Edge in Silver, though unless I kill off the Velox it will probably be a while before it is up and running.

You ADDICT, you...







Can I fly it?




P.S. -- I picked up some 1/4" wide velcro straps you can use for your servo wires.

I'm thinking you need to give me your 71 NIB slick for $200.00 because you will never get to it.
