am I better off starting out with a 51 or should I just plunge ahead and get the new 59..

I stayed away from the slicks but given everyones testimonials I have to believe its an easy 3d plane given my experience with bens planes/
I love my 51, flys like it's a lot bigger. looks it to!. But I can still get it in my CRV without taking the wings off. The 59 I would have to remove them. So I'm sticking with a 51 and 70 for now. Actually going to a 70 would be my next move for you flying a 55. Bigger more expsnsive parts though.

Speaking of SLICKS, how would you say the new 59" compares to the 57" Extra SC?

Not many people can answer that question yet.

Can you say Byper?

Ask Joe, Arron, or AJ that. They are about the only one that can answer that one right now

Well, I just killed my AMR last week - still hard to say that - so I guess I'll wait around for 3DHS bipe. Anyone wanna start a new rumor?? I'm sure Ben would love that.

In the meantime, I guess I'll just have to amuse myself with the Hyperion Enigma that is due to arrive tomorrow. Anyone who hasn't checked it out should do so - kinda crazy.

Hyperion Enigma 3D with Thrust Vectoring (1 min 58 sec)


Not bad for $99.95, incl the motor and delivery, huh? And if you break it, I think the motor would work nicely in the Buck Huck.

Hi all,

Going to order a 51" in orange (104" already coming) for the evening practice in the back yard...

I have a couple of questions.

Is the recommened Hacker set-up the "best" around.

Also, have been reading about several stripped servos HS85 MG.

I am planning to go the HS5085 digital.

Any thoughts / recommendations would be appreciated.

The 85's have been very durable for us. We sometimes fly on Hs-65MG, but those really are marginal and are prone to stripping. Upgrading the recommendation to 85MG solved this for us during the original development of the airplane.

The only time I have stripped a servo gear(85mgs) in the 51 slick is with a full throttle down line tumble. Did that twice. Now I think the biggest factor in the gears stripping is that they were worn and had slop in the gear train both times

Exactly. You are reaching the 4th level of mystical RC knowledge.
