Wow.......what an airplane ! I can't believe it's only 42 inches. I know it's AJ on the sticks so it's bound to look good but you can really tell it fly's "BIG".

Sold !! This is the one I have been looking for. Almost pulled the trigger on a 40" Edge but didn't for whatever reason. But this one is a no brainer.

Can't wait. Love this size.

Ben,

The video looks great on the plane. I know I had a blast flying. I didn't even know you were shooting in some of those cases. I think that many will like this plane just like its brother the 40 inch Edge and Extra. Its just that perfect size plane.

One note I want to make is that if you plane to fly on an A30-28s with a 12x6 please make sure you purchase the hacker X-40 or similar. While testing this model I have found that flying these models very hard will cause a shut down and in some cases fire. Just a word of warning.

Really nice flight on the 42" Slick Drew. I really like the mix precision/3D aerobatics you had on that flight. I really enjoyed that pull humpty to the 1 1/2 snap.

Sweeeeet!!!!!

That's the way it happens with me, too. I've got one lousy part laying around (often a spinner or some 4x40 bolts or something) that "needs a home" so I drop $450 bucks for everything else that I need so that it can have one!

And there is nothing wrong with that!! That is until the wife is wondering where the new plane came from

Ya........ummmm......I fell victim to that one ......and I was standing right next to him
