What weight is your battery? Just wondering where I should put my velcro.

Hey did I hear right that the pull pull cables need to cross and create an "X"? should I have done that with my SR?!

they'll rub the fuselage outlet holes a bit less if crossed, but it's not super-critical on the SR.

thought I'd add that it lands just like the 51", it comes in real stable and light feeling and it has a blastic roll rate.... I'm just too rusty to be a good source of how it compares to anything else flying. I have been out of the hobby for about 3 yrs. Last weekend I maidened a new 51" slick. So I haven't had a lot of stick time since I came back. I do know that it flies better than any small plane I have ever flown!!!! Man, there has been some really nice improvements since last flew!!!!
Thanks Steve for your help and advice in getting back in!!!

I tested the vertical at the end of the battery and I did run out speed, will check with a fresh battery.... It is ballanced just behine the wing tube and is neutral inverted. I like the way it flies, not as floaty as the 51"... might try the 1750's to see what that does... it could only get better!!!! Nice Job Ben and Company!

Congrats Bob... I got the red one too...
How is it compared to some of the other 4*" 3dhs planes as far as stability and such?

Kirby,
The 51 that I maidened last weekend and the 42 this morning are the only two 3DH planes I have... See post 1640.. its been a while, but it is a huge improvement over the mini Funtana I was flying when I dropped out. I did meet a guy at the Renner field that was testing out one of Ben's planes, but they were not on the market yet. I think that guy is one of Ben's distributors now..... He said he worked for Nortel when I talked to him and I bleive Steve knows him... On the other hand if you let me fly some of your 40 something inch 3DH planes I will have something to compare....ha ha..

Yes it was David Hoye he met back then with a 47" SHP.

The distributor Bob is thinking about is James Bruce (feathermerchant).

The 42" Slick was designed to have a little higher cubic loading then the 51". The plane will 3d as well as the 51" but should actually track just a little bit better. I have been flying mine quite a bit and it seems to do everything that I could have wished for.

I have a question on tracking. When it is said that one plane tracks better than another, is this refering to up lines and down lines or is it something else?
