I bought a hobby king slick when they first came out, and I finally got around to building it. It is actually a nice flyer, and it's too bad the scheme was copied from 3DHS's AJ Slick. However, HK does have the plane available in another scheme.
Here is a video of the second flight, after an incomplete first trim flight, and in windy conditions.
The included control hardware is not as good as Extreme Flight planes, and I had two different problems on maiden day. On the maiden flight, the control arm slipped out of the ez-link on one of the ailerons. On a later flight, the control arm slipped about 1/4" on the elevator. In both cases I was able to get the plane down safely.
One other problem I had was the battery got tossed even though it was secured with velcro and two straps. This plane can do some extreme tumbling generating lots of g-forces. Make sure your battery straps are very good. See this for battery toss:
