More SlowBipe Customer Feedback

Slow Flying RC Trainer Airplane for Beginners at

I am adding some photo's sent of a customer flying the SlowBipe in Washington State.

From Kent somewhere in Washington State
I bought two of your SlowBipes at the Monroe show. Best flying trainer I have ever been involved with by far. Response, slow flight, easy to see, superb power, and excellent crash survivability all excellent. Job well done!,,Do you sell extra battery packs? They are sold out at HobbyKing.,,Thanks, Kent

This is the first follow up email from Kent
This weekend I taught my friend from El Salvador how to fly the SlowBipe. It survived there pretty good crashes (including in a tree) without any major damage. Just a couple broken props.. :-) After 1 day he is flying on his own and doing a great job.

This is the second follow up email from Kent
Hi Michael,

Yes, you are very welcome to use the pictures. You would be quite proud to see how well Gerson is now doing. We put a very thin 1/64 inch thick plywood strip along the bottom of the fuse. - about 15 inches long. It really beefed it up with no weight gain.

Gerson lost control and drove the plane straight into the ground (soft and grassy) at fairly high speed. Nothing happened other than a broken prop. Was flying again in 5 minutes..

I am going to take it to our flying club next month and extoll its virtues as a trainer.

Thanks again, Kent

Here are the pictures that Kent sent of the student he has been teaching to fly. What a beautifull place to fly.
