New Slipstream aircraft. The MXS 30cc and the SBACH 342 30cc

Just picked these up today from a local Slipstream dealer, Aztech Aeromodels, http://aztechaero.goods.officelive.com/default.aspx

I am going to be doing a build log for each aircraft in the coming weeks ahead, but I wanted to do a little show and tell to wet your appetite.

Both are brand new aircraft, made by Slipstream (slipstreamrc.net)

Each plane has a 72" wingspan and are absolutely gorgeous.

Not a wrinkle on any surface for both planes. The covering is tight as a drum!

I am in the process of weighing the parts and combined bare airframe.

These will both be Electric powered.

Enjoy the pics.

More to come

I actually did the build log on the Sbach in the 3d flying forum

All the details on the power plant and such are in there.

Hey, Berkeley. I miss that place . $280 shipped isnt bad for this size plane. I love the MXS.

It actually was more expensive than that, but still worth the money. And yes, I could definitely do worse than Berkeley

I figured, they still have their Christmas special up right now. General Hobby has the Goldwing ARF's and the 73" MXS is $400, too rich for my blood. They did just get in some nice 60" planes in, including an MXS-R.

I was only doing High Power Rocketry while at UC Berkeley. I didnít get into RC until after I left. Where do you fly?
