I'll be performing an airshow for a bunch of full scale guys with the 104" slick in June, they're going to get a huge kick out of what that plane does.
I really want to shove some more power into it though, the DLE-111 works but just doesn't do it for me. It looks like the first 2 seconds of a space shuttle launch when full throttling out of a hover. I'm thinking DA-120...

The slick flys so good though it distracts me from the lack of oomph regularly. The main reason I want more power is so it can really utilize it's roll rate potential at higher speeds, and for it to pull around high speed rolling loops better without wanting to slow down so much.

I also want to upgrade from a 27x10 to like, a 28x12 or so...
Yeah. I'm excited. My biggest plane right now is a 58" edge so I'll probably be flying that.

I don't see why they would stop selling profile planes. They are the best throw around backyard planes.

Trixie good to see you on rcg. My 111 is like a rocket in the slick but it rips the xoar carbon pretty easy i know they won't put up with the ripping at Joe Nall. Thinking about trying a vess stealth 28b.

Thought this was a joke... but you're right - no more profile foamies on their website. Guess I got my 38" Slick just in time.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind for sure. I unfortunately won't be changing out any engines before the Nall so I'll have to deal with what I have in that depot.

I'd guess that is going to happen since the edge epp is already slated to come out

Well gentle man I am getting ready to head out to watch the avengers in about 10 minutes. Hope its as good as the trailers portray it to be!!!

Oh taking my son back to the field tomorrow after school to do some more flying. Might let him fly one of my slicks to see what he thinks of it (yes it will be on a buddy box) I really hope he will want to stick with flying with me as I really enjoyed it today
