I have 2 55" and 4 47". So the 51" was not for me but the 42" for a park sounds perfect. I feel comfortable at a park with the 47" size and smaller. The 42" slick may even be park authorized by the AMA park Flyer rules. 2 pounds or under and under 60mph. This looks like a good plane for a quick stop after work at a park.

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.
Will an airboss 35 or a thunderbird 36 work. I have both. Is there one you prefer. Why? I was going to go with the lightest one.
Thanks

The airboss 35 for sure will work as it is the same as the Hacker X-40.

Great, That is what I will use. I also have the servos and reciever (ar6100) hs 65hbs for the ailerons and mgs for the tail. I will take them out of my retired OMP Yak Stiffy. And who doesn't have 3s 1800-2200 lipos. This plane is going to be economical. All I need is the airframe. Buy one and get another of the same plane for 1/2 price would let me fly it like it was EPP. That could be a spring deal Ben?

That was the thinking behind the 40 inch size range. It just makes it easy to get the airframe because most already have all the equipment needed.

Exactly. 'Economical' is a great word! I also already have a few spare servos and a receiver from a crashed MUS so am really close to having all the equipment needed. I'm interested in hearing more info on the batteries once more details are known (i.e. Weight ranges of batteries that are acceptable because I have a pretty wide range of weights in my 3s 2000-2200 battieres)

Also, when you're talking about the 'pro-lite 2000's are those the black small square packs or the silver longer 2100 prolites (http://www.hobby-lobby.com/thunderpower.htm). I ask because I'm a little surprised the 15C 2100's could handle that power?

The ones I was talking about were actually 2100's, sorry about that. As far as weights go I have flown the plane on a 2200 pro-power pack which weighs in at 180 grams!!

Doc- That is a great video. Glad your getting over the to nice curse of the plane.

So, would you still consider it a 'park flyer' at 180g though? I have 3s 2000-2200 packs ranging from 140-190grams (the 140 are just 15c, but if those can take the load they'd probably be the best option)

Doc- Nice flying! Your 3D skills have come a long ways since even last years videos, gotta love the low stick-bangin'!

Doc,

Glad to hear the planes can take you back. It is a pleasure to hear stories like that.
I know when these planes come in I'm going to get a couple of them so I can beat on pretty hard.

Matt,

I still consider it a park flyer. It is a park flyer that will make you think your flying a much bigger airplane. I guess you can see a trend I tend to make with airplanes. Fool the plane and make it think its bigger than what it is.

After I bought the 51" Slick I had decided not to get the 42" one. Now that I have flown the 51" I am going to start looking for the gear that will fit the 42" and provided I still have a job get the little one for a trunk monkey. If the 42" is anywhere near as fun as the 51" I need to have that airframe. Great job AJ! You might be tired of hearing that but it is the truth.
