hehehehe incidence meter on a 3dhs plane.. hehehehe
Ive been cruising these threads for years and not one time was incidence a problem on these or Extreme Flight planes.
Are your servos new or from another plane? CG nose heavy? Also did you use two elevator servos or the single elevator servo setup with the joiner?

Also, the Slicks are going to need some mixing so it definitely takes a while to get the feel for it. Even in AJ's DVD "All Things Slick" he ends up putting in around 10% rudder to elevator and 5% rudder the aileron. He was flying a 70" not 71'' Slick so that might make a difference. I'm still building my 71'' Slick but it took a while for me to get the feel for my 51'' Slick. People say "nothing flies like a slick" and that's true but it can be a good thing and a bad thing. If you don't fly Slicks when you do it will probably feel weird because it doesn't fly like anything else. If you fly the Slick all the time it would probably be your favorite plane. That's how i felt about the 51'' at least and i'm hoping i don't take as long as to get used to the 71''.

I'm using the Solar D771 HV in the tail feather's and the Solar D770's in the wings. I know they are inexpensive but I have been using and abusing them in four other planes all summer and have been very happy with them.

Just wanted to share with you all that I got my 71 Red slick today . Not much damage in shipping. Will be soon starting the build. I've gone through most of this thread and I know it's going to be a great build resource for me.

That is quite a monumental task. Congratulations on finding the time!
If you have any questions ask away, someone will answer them!

The spinner doesn't match the cowl for the first time and the cowl is a bit off the fuselage and the canopy doesn't fit perfectly either, oh well, probably won't notice it when I get it in the air.
I had alittle problem too because I put the cowl on without having the canopy on. The canopy sits a little high at the back relative to the pin latch as a result.
