I originally posted this in the 51'' slick thread but not many responses so maybe someone here knows what could be going on. I have no clue what it is so any help would be appreciated...



"i noticed when i would do a snap roll or even on 4 points rolls the plane just kept rotating. I have about 85 flights on the slick so i am used to the way it flies and this is just

weird. I tried a 4 point roll and did the first quarter and the plane kept going around another quarter turn. I can't see the problem on the ground though, everything looks the

same as always i just can't figure out what the problem could be. I mostly notice the problem when i roll left and it doesn't do it all the time. So one roll everything is fine

and the next roll it just keeps going."

Yep. I have enough flights on it to know the airframe and something weird is going on. It's so noticeable when it happens that it would be weird on any plane. The first time it happened i thought my servo locked up and i was going to spiral into the ground but it only did an extra half roll. But i thought it was gone in that split second.

Not that i could tell. After i noticed the problem it seemed to dangerous to fly it again until i resolved the problem so i didn't have much time to analyze it in the air but it did happen multiple times.

Hmm if you have any extra servos I'd try swapping them out on the ailerons just to try it... They don't need to be the perfect servos, but give it a try.
What radio system are you using?

Sounds like a bad servo.

I'm using hs5085s so i guess i'll send them in to hitec to get them checked out. I have a bunch of hs65s that burned up that i've been too lazy to send in so i'll send them all together.

Looks nice; really like the color scheme.

Which engine is powering this airframe?

How does the Velox differ from an Extra...they seem to be so similar in appearance?

Wade had a DLE 20 in his, ran well and had lots of power. Its a really pretty plane in the air.

Sweet! I've got it pre-ordered!

Any chance one of those fantastic Smith family video productions is in the works?
