Nice to be able to charge 6 at once.
Yeah,that looks sweet! Ron

5 minutes is about tops,I can get on any battery I've tried! I must really stand on the throttle? I do like those straight up climbs at WOT to about 300ft! So I can do blenders forever, on the way back down! Ron

Just don't mix different cell counts when parallel charging and if using different charge rates on batteries set the charge rate to the lowest rate.

Ex. A 5c and a 3c charge rates would be set to 3c when paracharging.



Started building my crack yak last night. Should I put the arms on the servos before gluing tue bottom fuse on?

I did on the aileron servo,but you really don't have to! You can bend the foam out of the way to get the screw in! Ron

Took my slick out for the first time today. This is my first non micro rc plane, hell this is my first plane that doesn't use the horizon hobby rx/esc/servo brick. I do not think I could have made a better choice. I was the entire time.

I am completely hooked on twisted hobbys planes. I was already sold on the customer service but now the product itself has ensured that the second I save up some money, it's heading their way. I need one at work for the occasional slow day, one in the car so I can stop at the field on the way home, and a few at home. Or I could just keep the slick with me at all times, but where's the fun in that?

Thanks Brad and Company for this phenomenal plane. First day back flying this year was a huge success.

Congrats man! The new Slick is killer! Keep all your UMX stuff you might possibly need it for something neat in the future. In the meantime, get yourself a Crack Yak and ENJOY!

Congrats! They are incredible airplanes. A Crack Yak is a great next airplane and when you are ready, a Telink airplane is a great stepping stone to larger stuff...in 3D they feel almost exactly the same as a really good balsa plane. Just sayin'

Just thinking... Not sure if you're aware of the proper way of storing these EPP planes (hung from the prop) but don't leave one in the car for long. EPP is tough but it will warp if left in the wrong position, especially in a hot temps, like baking in the car.

Parallel charging is awesome! Makes your life so much easier - I, too, got all my cables from progressive RC. It's great to be able to charge all your batteries in one or two shots.

Well my crack yak does say crack series on it, so I would expect a small yak 55. After flying umx planes though like the suk-26 I wont be going back, just didn't have enough power and a simple gust threw it all over the place.
