New Product
HobbyKing 3DHK 51" Slick

So about that new Slick from HK that is most likely the same exact plane a the 3DHS 51" Slick, but at only $120...

First official pictures can be found on page 23.

IMHO, it's equally as obnoxious as the 3DHS version. Good job HK.

Subbing to see what happens, but also to see how it flies. It'd be nice to have a cheap balsa basher...

...but mostly just subbing to see what happens.

My initial observations are the CF landing gear, sharper wing section, and a taller tail (perhaps taking note of the improvements in the other thread?). And the structure shows a striking resemblance to an airframe I think i've seen before.... We'll see.

looking forward to seeing what happense here.I'm pretty sure the improvements have come from everyone over in the other thread and noted.good work on it,though I really hope another scheme comes out.It's terrible.I might actually be tempteddepending on how it flies.so who's gonna be the 1st to dive in?
And another thing...replacement parts???let's see if HK can surprise us.I love my 51 HK
