I knew I should have not opened this thread … Just another dilemma that you folks at 3DHS are putting me through… Ben you are killing me… I gutted my H9 Cap (DA50, 5x Hitec 7955 servos, A123 battery packs) for the Extra SHP for the next flying season to try some IMAC. Now I see this thread and my mind starts to churn.

The dilemma, buy the Extra, tuned pipe, spinner and prop? Sell the DA50 and buy a DLE30, the new 72 Extra (this one will make transportation to the field with the 89 Slick easy)? Hope for a new improved 50 CC Extra SC to go with my 89 Slick? Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Man, this is the plane I am really waiting for. I like the slick and I know I'll like the 65" Vyper, but the my 57" SC still feels like the best all around plane to me for both pattern and 3D. And the 72" should be even better.

Ben and Scott, you have my permission to green light this project and expedite the manufacturing to get it to market ASAP. With good supply chain management and incorporating the "Toyota System" of manufacturing, I feel you could get this out by Christmas! Don't let us investors down or we will have to downgrade your stock from a "must buy" to just a "buy".

I'm just guessing but I wouldn't be surprised to see it released at SEFF 2010.

Ben is working on it now...said ETA would be Jan . I know he is working on making room for a can install which would be pretty cool if you have a db restriction where you fly. Ive got everything I need for it except the plane.

A canister setup would be cool on the DL30, Question is who makes one and where can it be purchased?

It'll happen, as should a pipe. We'll support all of the different exhaust setups that are available prior to finalizing the files...

Is the gas 70 Slick also being built to support canister/pipe setups with the DL30?
