id do it in a heartbeat. i want to fly my 72 extra so bad. i wouldnt if you dont want to though. NEVER force you'reself to fly. it never ends good. but if you do be careful with the engine in the cold. let it warm up first before you fly.

Maidened my 71" slick today! I got 2 flights on it! I love it! It is so stable and smooth compared to my smaller planes! It did very well in harriers and hovers. I also loved rolling harriers! They were slower than my smaller planes and really smooth. All in all, I love it!

It also handles the wind much better than my smaller planes!

Well we were towed to 3500 feet, but the air was very still. Even if there was a big thermal, i was just learning how to do turns and stuff, thermals were too hard to do today. The flight was 35 min. Plus i get motion sickness and thermal turs pulling 1.5 Gs would be bad. It is supposed to go away as i fly more. Maybe after 4 hours in the plane i will not get sick. I did stall it, but on puropse. It stalled at 38 knots, but we went up to 60 max. It can go i think 130 before the wings flutter.
