it is getting tighter definately but there is still some room. I have room for 3 70" class on the bars (currently 57SC and 65V and waiting for my 72SC) and i made a rack for the smaller ones underneath (47SHP,46V,40E) and the 47Edge doesnt have its assigned space yet.

as it looks i do have room for at least double that in front of what i have now

i have another 'spare' A50-12L and a A30-12L sitting here as well

tempted by a slick also. Not sure if i want to make the jump past the 70 class yet.

trying to be content not to order anyting. Almost forgot, got to pick up my Slash that arrived yesterday ...

Before you fill up the van you may want to take a pull on my 103 once it is ready

plenty of time to work on some vinyl. Maybe i bring my vinyl cutter over next time. It would fit in the van. just a wee bit heavy but without the stand it should work

i am going to do some work on my 57 extra soon but i may need to order some more vinyl first

Ya Manta pulled his gear from the 87 and now has the 89 in the air and I do have all the hardware at home for the 87 so it should not be long after I get home to get the 87 airborne

I have a 46 Vyper, 42 Slick, 32 EPP Yak and a 68 Velox just waiting on 1 servo to finish.

Barry - you haven't missed anything. We discussed the specs on the airframe many times earlier in this thread, but we don't have a completed web page up for it. The reason is that we are changing websites, and writing a page is a lot of work, so we're trying not to write any more pages for the old site so that we don't have to do them twice.

Let me know what you'd like to know about the aircraft, I'll be glad to answer any questions. It's part of our 65-72" series, and shares basic paramteters with the other aircraft in the series, such as the 70" Slick. It's 9.5-10lb as a 6-8S electric. It uses 4 servos, HS-985MG or 7985MG recommended. Recommended power level is 1800-2200W. Recommended prop size is 17x8-20x10. Most people, I suspect will go with Hacker A50-12L. Other motors to consider are the 380KV Motrolfly, the Scorpion 4025 and 4035.

Ben would this plane with it's wings on fit in the back of a 6ft short bed pickup truck if it were placed in at an angle? Just curious.
