and there we go, I figured it was 48" long.


Are both the wings magneticly connected or is it just the top wing?

uhm.....

is this a joke? I am slightly confused how magnets could hold a wing through 3D manuevers....

On a different note, I think I fell for it and look like an idiot

Thank you Mr. Stoops!! I am so looking forward to owning and flying another one of your creations. And a bipe to boot!!! I have been wanting a bipe too and to mix a bipe with your masterful development will be such a joy. I sure wish they would get onto a boat so that pre-orders could start. I will put my order in the moment pre-orders are accepted. I have already gotten LiPo batteries, an ESC, and a RX.

Both, but we added wing bolts on the bottoms just to "be sure"...

I've got servos and an ESC all purchased. +1 on preorders!

Kudos Scott!

I have been waiting patiently......but the 51" Slick has been calling....the only thing that kept me from ordering the Slick when it came in stock was I wanted an orange one....and all they got was red..... I also have all the stuff for it...

I get the feeling we are getting closer seeing how Scott is popping in here (great article in the last AMA magazine by the way and I'm just about through your book, great read)

PS orange flys better in the slick
