Got the package yesterday pal. Didn't have a chance to crack the box open. I will do it in the next hour or so.

Thanks Pal !

I'll freeze before them (while installing wings and stuffs).

Maybe I'll fly the 51" instead.

Thanks for the recommendation

When ? When ???

Do you think 12s-4000 is good enough in the Slick 89" ?

I have several 4s-4000 and 6s-4000 packs, a 150kv motor, and servos.

Have an ICE 80 HV, 85 HV ... probably ICE 120 HV is better.

It should be enough, just shorter flight times! I have never owed or flew an 89" electric Slick, so I'm not an expert source. I'm using 12S 8000mah in my 103" and can get 7 minutes and only use 75% of the capacity. But I'm kind of light on the throttle.
