Yeah the blue is really growing on me. If they accidentally shipped me a blue instead of the yellow I ordered, I'd definitely keep it.

It is, but I have a penchant for red as it is easier for me to see....

I am waiting on you to report back on your A60-6XS install. My 71 Slick had a massive structural failure (wing spar tube end cap) at FLI and I have all the gear to go into something new. It is 4 ounces heavier than the A50-16S, and I would be happy if that means putting in the push pull in the rudder to get good balance.

Truth be told, me too. Almost my whole fleet is yellow.

I would bet that it will...but fortunately that is easily done....

The blue has even more of a muscle car look as the colors have been used quite a bit, don't recall many yellow and red muscle cars

I'd love to see both in person. When I got my 68 yellow I had no doubts that was the scheme for me, but when I saw the blue in person I was second guessing. I'm sure the new scheme will be like the first... no wrong choice to me made!

I'm afraid to fly my 68 now for fear I'll kill it half on purpose just so I can get one of the cool new 70" ones I still don't know which scheme I'd choose

Hey Bigster, I'll trade you my yellow/red 68" for your new blue 70". For a small fee, I'll leave everything (dle-20, tank and all electronics) in it. You get a gasser all ready to fly. Think about it... you could be flying it this weekend...

Agreed on the blue looking more like a muscle car, but the yellow is a hot rod!

You've got to come fly with us at SVF some day. Of course there will be my yellow 70, and I would be really surprised if one or two other guys didn't end up with one sometime soon.

Hey guys, the 70" Veloxs are shipping. Some trimming of the cowl is needed on this version. Real simple and makes a nice, tight fit.

The manual will be updated, but wanted you all to be aware.

I have to say, I haven't been a big fan of gas in this size, but the DLE 20 powered Velox has changed my mind. So much fun. If anyone is on the fence about gas vs. electric, go for the DLE 20!
