Outstanding flight! I so enjoy the Slowly. It gives you the time to enjoy the experience with a little less anxiety.

David has hit the nail on the head. The two other Slowlys in my previous video belong to a couple of guys who were having a torrid time 6 months ago trying to learn how to fly RC. Before the Slowly they spent more time gluing their planes back together and buying more props than they did flying.
If you've seen the video they are now competent flyers, and are able to fly their other planes, like the Bixler, EasyStar and Diablo. The Slowly gave them a chance to get a plane in the air and keep it there long enough to practice and gain more confidence.
On the flip side I've been flying RC since I was a kid and I'm now 46, but I'd rather fly my Slowly than some of my warbirds, why, because like David says, "It gives you the time to enjoy the experience".
Cheers
Andy

Hey walt ! mine are at 8 inches inside of wheel to inside of wheel. I have them this far apart because i want to mount floats on my slowly later. I will take a couple pictures of my nirod outer piece glued through my fuse and carbonfiber rods i slide through those for my landing gear. Its held on by wheel collars and my wheels use wheel collars also. Hey Andy ! great minds think alike. lmao joe

Here's a photo of mine, with a ruler positioned on "Buttock Line Zero".
The wheels were 6 inch spread and the floats were about 9 inches apart.

The floats are attached with automotive silicone... so I can easily cut them away for conversion back to a land plane.

Hi everyone

Just thought I'd post a couple of photos of my Slowly after this mornings flying get together. My so called friend "Crash Test Dave," and I had a bit of a mid air incident, and the prop on his Italian Slowly shredded my plane. Then while everyone else was laughing and pointing at my sliced up Slowly, he had the nerve to bitch about having to change his prop because my plane had broken the tip off, cheeky

I want to see Dave put a little Union Jack on the side of the cockpit. It's only fair that one gets credit for one's kills.

Hi David, I like that idea, I bet Dave would too, it would certainly give him some bragging rights.
