I've used them before, important to get the pilot hole the right size to stop splitting. After thinking about it though, the wood at the wing tip would have to fairly thick also to use them properly, probably the spacer is the best move.

I was just commenting about using a 1" airfoil shaped block to bring the plane up to the legal 50" for the new contest...

this is pretty much how i did mine. it made KE almost as nice as my Osiris. one of the guys on here used some kinda screws that dont need a tool to install and take back off. i cant remember who are what kinda they are. but like someone mentioned above i usually wedge my wings between fuselages when in the car.

Thanks. I may try and at least get a 51 slick but I really want a 60" plane next. I already have some Hs-5085 sevos and ice 75 esc so that is a start for the 51 if I go that route. If I can refrain from getting a bigger heli first I may be able to work something out.

Wonder if a inch piece of small carbon fiber sticking out each wing counts as getting to 50. Hahahahaha.

If you're gonna go 60" then I'd HIGHLY recommend the 57" SC. It's probably one of the best planes I've ever flown. It's awesome for 3D or precision. But I also think that everyone should have a 51" Slick in their fleet. It's the most violent but locked in plane I've got. It does everything very well but it likes to be treated rough!!

completely agree. The 57sc is one of the best all around planes out there. So easy to fly. So precise and still violent when you want it to be. And when you start to see the prices of a complete setup on a 50cc plane, you realize what a bargain the 60" planes really are

57 is a great plane. I'm anxious to compare it to the 60" EF Edge.

If you could craft some racing tips like the 92 Edge has, that would look pretty sweet!

I had a 60" EF Edge for a little while (sold it to fund a 70" Slick) and it's a fantastic plane as well. I found it to be much more docile than the Extra. It hovers a lot easier that's for sure. But it's not nearly as violent. But take that with a grain of salt because I wasn't running similar equipment in them. The EF Edge had some slow servos in it (I bought it used) that was probably the culprit.

The EF Edge did some of the smoothest rollers I've ever seen though. It was VERY predictable.

But the Extra is just a unique plane for me. It's capable of being floaty and predictable or fast and wild. I've got a brand new one sitting in a box just waiting on a motor and ESC. Unfortunately I lost my old one in a nasty mid-air and I just haven't gotten around to putting the new one together yet (that's what a 3 month old baby will do for ya).

Hey, i know how it goes with little ones in the house It's part of the reason i'm looking at 50cc gassers now. If i go all the way out to the club field, I want something where i can get some serious flight time in because it's rare when i get the oppty to even go the field. Most of my flying is at parks these days, unfortunately.
