haha, sorry, just being a smart a$$

probably not....im not really a huge fan of the smaller stuff. when i go fly, i go when my schedule lets me, and thats usually with a lot of wind. 70 in is really about as small as i go...i do have a 51 slick, but i dont get to fly it much, as im not a windy flyer. i know....let the name calling begin

I'm sorta with you on that. I hate when it's windy, but I fly when I can, wind or not. It's definitely not as much fun though!

I don't know if I'll be able to resist this one. It's just darn cool looking.

it is pretty sick....but the thought of saving up for a 104 slick is enough motivation for me to not spend my money

I've been tempted to hit the "buy button" on a new 47"SHP.
That was my first 3DHS plane and a great one. The -900 motor and HS65s worked fine in the Velox as a 3S plane. The gear is still working although both those planes are now dead and gone.

But....this Yak would be something different. Pending what the second color scheme looks like, I might wait. If it were only this red AJ scheme, I'd pass and buy a SHP straight away. But if the other Yak color scheme is apealing to me...I'll wait and get one.

Everybody has a preference on covering schemes. The original AJ scheme is what made me wait on getting a 51" Slick....till the yellow was availble. I'm more partial to simple, clean schemes than all the stars and swoops and action.

When might we get a peek at what the second covering choice would look like?
