Thanks! Yes, I saw those two from the 48" Super Vyper page on the 3DHS website.

Man, I just picked up a second-hand NIB 72 last week. Had I known this was gonna happen, I'd have ordered new and banked some more points!

Awesome deal though, and thanks!

Dang, just got home tonight and went to order the 59" Slick and both colors are now out of stock. How does the 51" compare to the 59". Any major differences in flight characteristers? Might just go ahead and order the 48" Super Viper since it's still on the current F3A sale.

From what I've read and heard, the 59 favors precision flight, much more than the other size Slicks.

My favorites are the 103 and 104....I feel very comfy with both...and will gladly own and fly both as much as possible...without caring which is an extra or a slick.
OK, so lets go the other direction - how do the 103 and the 119 compare?

Get the 103, its near perfcection, you can throw it around harder than a 40% plane without fear of breaking it also.

The 103 is just so much fun, very good with a 120. The 119 is a really nice 40%er. I'm more comfortable with the 103 right now but I've got hundreds more flights on the 120cc stuff and I'm kindof new to the really big planes. They feel really similar except the 103 accelerates much faster...better power to weight than the 40%. For slow rollers and lazy harrier...give it to the 119 though....

I you are into hardcore 3d you will love the 51! Rock solid harriers, great lines, and tumbles violently! I will probably always have a 51 in my garage! It's also real easy to get a high power/weight on the 51 so you can really toss it around if that's your flying style! Many that have 70/71's like the 51 because it fits in most cars with the wings on!
