Got my shipping notice this morning.

Had pre-ordered the orange scheme, but 3DHS didn't get them in as expected. So Noll sent an email asking if I wanted the red one or wait 4 to 5 weeks for the orange. I asked for the red one instead - that'll make it 3 Slicks in the same red scheme 42", 59", and now the 51". I like how it looks, so I don't mind.

I had mine on pre-order, I've also contacted them via the site, hopefully I'll get one of the first ones.

I check their site almost every day. I thought they were going to be available in August. I missed pre order info I guess. I would not have got one without actually clicking the plane and seeing they were available. I really wanted orange but red will do! Hopefully I have not missed the pre order on the Biper!

Maidened my slick today and I am just so impressed with the slicks... This plane by far is the most stable post stall plane I've ever flown! Instantly want the 71"!

You like the post stall better than your 60" Edge?

The edge is absolutely amazing! But for some reason, the slick was easier for me to control... I really shouldn't even say which I like better, because they are both incredibly stable. I felt so comfortable with both, I just had more confidence with the slick. Can't really explain it, it's just how I felt today at the field. My buddy filmed and will probably post the maiden. Nothing crazy, but felt comfortable.

Glad you enjoyed it! (both of them!)

I gotta say, I love your taste in Airplanes!

Switching over to realflight 6 here soon.. Can't wait to see that thing on 110" screen! Hopefully I can start to really make progress now that I have a few amazing frames to back me up!

I think there will ALWAYS be slicks and edges in my fleet... Now I know why guys all have multiple slicks!
