JC, if I had a place to fly indoors throughout the colder months/windy days, I would already have purchased it probably... I think I need to save my coins and build an indoor soccer facility here in my little town! lol

The little Slicks fly great outdoors too!

But there is no replacement for the big 48.8" SBach 342. It is unique in that it flies very much like the smaller ones but also like a balsa bird. You have to fly one to experience this. You also get the benefits of it being EPP.

24g / 26g Motors...

There was no flying joy for me today, windy and rainy, so the flight report on the 26g motor will wait another day.

Winter is coming..... stock up on 360mAh batteries now for your indoor foamie!

I want a 3d simulator (with the 3d glasses). I think that is what I am missing.

Meanwhile,
I need to get some planes built so I can order crack yaks for my son and me.

Had an opportunity to speak w/ Brad @ Twisted Hobbys yesterday for some servo and power advice. He was very helpful, patient and pleasant. The last words before we hung up were "Call us anytime!". My experiences with Twisted w/ ordering, shipment, email and phone have all been a great example of excellent customer service. Thank you Brad!

Same here, very helpful when I bought my Crack Yak and Sbach 342 48.8. Everything works perfect and the planes fly awesome!

Got 5 or six 3s packs in last night between lighting strikes. On 3s/8in prop, 26g motor works really nicely with the Pitts, very similar to the 24g motor, just a little motor grunt... it does take a little more energy (higher amp draw), so if you are flying with lots of throttle you will notice a slight decrease in flight times. On 2s/9in prop low and slow was nice, but lacked the vertical of the 3s.

Thunder was Crackin' all around me last night, it was kinda fun!!...

Would you say it's worth a motor upgrade for those flying on 2s, or maybe better suited just for the 3s users?

had a strange thing happen flying my telink big slick on its last flight... i dumped a wingtip, actually broke it, after that i just ripped off another wingtip (together shortening wings by around 2-3"), put in a heavier(30 and than 65c) batery, and actually the heavier battery got, the more i liked it... my tail was kinda waggy (?) on a setup, so my guess is bigger power and weight helped but still.... anyway, im finally retiring my slick and getting another buster..
