Yeah Carlos, did the bum at least offer you your money back?

no seriously, Jkarpy you really ought to link that video on your site. Im really impressed.
Three things come to mind - excellent slow speed performance combined with excellent inverted manners. NOT common, and NOT something you can say about the stock SS.
Lastly is the aileron response. One thing i love about the SS is the ability to not fly, but bounce it around when you desire....typically when ive forgotten to take my meds. Thats why SS Combat is so much fun. Honestly, from Carlos' second video, i think he could outmaneuver my best ship on my best day.
Congratulations,
Mike

James, I received the replacement plastic for my new X-gear today. That was fast, and I must say thanks!
That is fabulous customer service!!!
I always plug you and your company when I get the chance. Just because I know you really care about what you are doing, and it shows. Keep up the good work!

P.S. Still waiting to start my Micro... Hopefully I'll have it flying by next weekend...

James,

If they are at Bob's, and/or Graves or even J&B, I will certainly give it a try!

I think you will find that the production plastic works great. The Nylon/ABS blend makes a huge difference. It holds the carbon very tight. The only thing you will break is the carbon on a very bad landing. Iím not saying that the gear is indestructible. It may break in a very hard crash. Iím not going to test that one on purpose . I have nosed the plane in from 2 feet slamming it directly on the gear, broke one strut and continued to do touch and goes with one broken strut.

James,

Wonderful news....too bad that only GravesRC is the only one that has come around to knowing what a wonderful product this is from someone that in my opinion has revolutionized the concept of SLOW flight using OUR OWN designed in the US of A!

No one can forced their hand from an individual perspective and it will have to be the masses that frequent their businesses who will make them realize!

I would need a "YELLOW" gear to match with my "YELLOW" SLOW STICK-X and regular "GWS" YELLOW Slope version, so, I would need two of them!

Keep plugging away!

I will let you know as soon as the yellow come in. I do know that they have been molded.

Thanks!
