Nice job. Can't decide if I like the Green Orange one or the Purple Blue one best.
No team affiliations, but a good customer I'll have it at the JR Indoor meet if anyone wants to check it out there. hmm, I see people saying purple/blue, but it looks pink/blue on my monitor. Either way, I want one.

I was flying my slick last night and found that my prop was a little loose for my liking. I have been using the latex tubing from Lowes. I'm flying only on 2s. Anyone else have issues with this tubing?

I have the Turnigy9X V2 TX and a few extra Turnigy 8 channel RX,s.Plan on using it on the new twisted 32",so question is will the RX be to big for this small plane ? I think there is a smaller RX that will work with my TX if i need to get one.

The tubing comes in different sizes. You may need to use a smaller diameter tubing and/or thicker walled tubing. Also, how wide of a slice matters as well - are you too thin?

Personally, I use #35 o-rings from lowes plumbing section. A minimum of two and as my flying has become more aggressive, I am now using three #35 o-rings.

18 grams is heavy for a rx on these planes. Removing the case usually cuts the rx weight in half.

That would get you down to around 9-10 grams which is fine.

Now I'm really confused. You've got the Edge on it's way, that I understand but is it the Crack Yak or the Crack Pitts your going to order? it was me that said to watch your run times on the stock power combo. I presume it's the Crack Series 24g 1450kv motor your getting and I think I remember you saying it was the 360mah 3s packs you ordered. I don't think there will be any problem with them handling the power just that the flight times will be shorter than it would on 2s or 3s 450's. To give you an idea I fly my Crack Pitts with the Crack Series 24g 1450kv motor on it with 3s 380mah packs. If I'm careful I can get a five minute flight but I set my timer for four and a half. If I have a normal flight I will come in as soon as the timer goes off, if I have been doing a lot of floating around I don't rush so much. The packs come down at between about 3.7 and 3.8V which shouldn't do the batteries any harm.

Had a fantastic indoor session again tonight. Only three of us flying, I had the Slick and the Pitts with me this time and the others had the Crack Yak and another Crack Pitts. I flew the Pitts on 3s all night and had the Slick on an X Series 1480kv motor and 2s. I found the combination of the two of them very good for mixing up the flying a bit. It's not often we get three of us going all out to get as many flights in as we can so it made for some interesting avoiding tactics, sometimes it worked sometimes it didn't what a laugh. Snowing epp all over the place the prop wins every time.

Crack is killing me, I'm losing track of how many I have.

Brad got tired of me whining about getting unpainted Crack and arranged to sell me two of them. My buddy Gary Pierson (flyboyz43) painted them both. Can't wait to get them in the air.

Now that looks sweeet! I'm envious of both getting the plain jane and the paint job.
