The 71" AJ Slick 540


OK, here they are.

The new 25% AJ slicks measure 71" WS x 70" Long with 1012 sq. inches of wing area.

I think every single customer request ever made about the 70" Slick has been addressed:

The 71" Slick featured a carbon-carbon reinforced landing gear plate assembly with carbon tube fuselage stiffeners and heavy-duty fasteners.

The 71" Slick features 3" diameter main wheels.

The 71" Slick retains the pre-hinged and gap-sealed ailerons, but the tail hinges are no longer glued to allow them to be changed if desired by the builder (different brand, or do custom work like removable rudder).

The 71" Slick electric retains the extra-long hatch and cowl cutout for easy battery placement.

Carbon wing tube, carbon main gear, and carbon tail wheel are included.

A vinyl decal package featuring outline-vinyl graphics is included.

"AJ Design" mylar decal sheet and AJ throwmeter included.

Wing bags included.

All ball link/phenolic hardware.


AND. We are now building these aircraft at a new facility which is allowing us to raise the wood quality a bit, do a slightly better job overall...and offer the 71" in either color scheme for $389.99 plus shipping for now.

They are going live now, and are in stock now. The 71" uses exactly the same components as the 70" Slick, and flies essentially the same, which is to say just about perfectly.

If only I could push my old 70 Slick beyond its limits (can a crash be worth it!) I could get a baby brother to my pre-ordered 104 orange monster!
Gota love that orange scheme!
