Yes, I saw that, not a problem for me, looks like it is going to retail for 76.99 at tower, throw on their often sent $25 off 150 coupons and I could have 2 of these for less than 130.

I would worry about the 90 amp rating. The 4325 is capable of about 2200 watts pretty easy, and depending on what kv/prop you will probably be close to that. The 4325-380 with a 19x10 will make about 2200 watts with good batteries. 2200 watts is 100 amps roughly on 6s.

definitely agree here. If I do use bullets I always tape them together with electrical tape. Had motor bullets come undone on my 51" Slick several times. Even had them zip tied to the frame, and still they came unplugged.

It's good to find out you are not all youngsters. I'm almost 63. These Slicks make me feel like a kid again, at least when my arthritis, hernias, heartburn, knees, sometimers desease, aren't bothering me. Maybe someone should start a Slick thread for people over ____ ?

Thinking about getting an AJ Slick. I think the larger plane would be more stable...I am flying a 48" now. Would you all say it's easier to hover this 71"er than your standard 48" plane?

Well it started raining so l didn't get to fly

Jocanon yes the 71 slick is 10x easier to hover. Its so much smoother all around too and yes the slick is very stable.

10X ? LOL Another scientific study! Just kidding bro, Bigger flies better! That is no bull, I have the 3DHS Edge 48" and the Slick 71". They both hover well but for stability in 3D or precision flight the bigger Slick has a huge advantage.

Now, if I could just slow down the physics like in RF (matrix style)...maybe it would be 10X

the bigger you go with the slicks the better it gets..nothing flys like a slick.

Much easier .... easier than any plane on Real Flight sim .... you may never want to fly a 48-in again! Or a 60-in class.

If anyone is looking for flight setups for a 48 - I have a bunch of stuff I can offer, just PM me.
