The first new bird of 2012

An attempt to improve my 3D skills - a Twisted Hobbys Extra Slick 32"

After 9 months of working on 3D with my Extra 300 SHP, and finding that I'm not willing to risk a Balsa ARF to learn low altitude 3D skills, I've decided to take the leap with this new EPP foamie as the first new bird of the 2012 season. I keep hearing that once you try one of these, you don't want to fly anything else. I cant see me giving up the Extra 300, or the newly hot rodded T-28 for that matter, but I do think it will be a ton of fun, and a great way to build skills without creating an expensive pile of toothpicks.

It took a good day to assemble, but I think I could do it in half the time now that I've done one. Its a VERY well designed kit, tab and slot construction makes it hard to screw up too bad. The only oops I had was mounting the servo arms in the wrong direction for the rudder and elevator. It was easy to fix with a pair of helping hands to hold the foam out of the way.

Completion was March 21, maiden weather permitting should be tomorrow morning.
