Thinking of picking up a few glacier 3s2200 35C for my new 48 SHP and one 3s2200 30C for a flight pack on the 89.
Yes...just fine....like Losi said.

That statement about arming plugs coming out seems funny to me....we don't seem to worry about connectors coming apart in flight INSIDE the plane...and they have the added momentum of the wire weight tugging on them through maneuvers....I'd be shocked to hear of a well maintained arming plug flying out in a tumble.

Yep I tried to get him to put his friends wagon behind it as well but he does have some limits. However I think this is a good step towards induction to the Hillbilly Huckers eh?

You could tape some "attachments" to the Slick's stabs to make it the same effective size as an 87, then see if you can get it in there.

Goodyear Blimp flew over our field this evening. No Titans game or races in Nashville tonight. They must have been looking for Wamsy.
