Do expect to pay taxes on the purchase if there are city or state sales taxes....that's one thing that you save by buying from out of state...

I have a 71" red gasser I'm building right now. Not sure if it would make sense adding a 71" electric slick to the hanger rather than a 59" slick. Next smallest from my 71" slick gasser is my 48" Edge. The 59" would fill that gap but again bigger is better. Thanks!

59" Slick is a great flying plane in my opinion.....

almost finished my 71. new 5320 came today. i went with the 7985mg's, and they are the noisest servo's i've owned. my question is when i first powered my rec and servo's my castle bec was still at 6v and the package calls for 4.8v. for servo's. could that have harmed the servo's? even though it was only for a minute. they work ok no binding,but are noisey. normal?

6.5 volts is fine with 7985's.

Digital servos are noisy if you have never had digitals before

Yup. It drives me crazy!
I can't stand the R2D2 sounds they make.

It was posted by hitec guys on rcg that all the 7series were good to 7.4v. I have my 7985s set at 6.7volts and they are holding up just fine. I did have them at 7.0 volts for a while but took a bit of voltage out to help smooth the sticks a little.

Met a guy at the field this morning who was nice enough to let me use his HiTEC digital servo programmer on my jittery problem child. When we first plugged it in it just said ERROR... Not a good start. Unplugged it and gave it one more shot. This time it came up to the menu screen and we were able to do the factory reset on it. Plugged it in to the airplane and no more jitter, amazing. At least I didn't have to mess with the deadband settings.

That servo is now back in the wing and she is just about ready to fly. Dual rates and expo are also set and ready. I just need these new wheel pants to show up and solve this wheel problem.

Quick question- what are the differences between the old 70" slicks and the new 71"? Is there any flying characteristics noticeably different?
I feel like I should know the answers to this!
