New Slipstream aircraft. The MXS 30cc and the SBACH 342 30cc

Just picked these up today from a local Slipstream dealer, Aztech Aeromodels,

I am going to be doing a build log for each aircraft in the coming weeks ahead, but I wanted to do a little show and tell to wet your appetite.

Both are brand new aircraft, made by Slipstream (

Each plane has a 72" wingspan and are absolutely gorgeous.

Not a wrinkle on any surface for both planes. The covering is tight as a drum!

I am in the process of weighing the parts and combined bare airframe.

These will both be Electric powered.

Enjoy the pics.

More to come

All the details on the power plant and such are in there.

It actually was more expensive than that, but still worth the money. And yes, I could definitely do worse than Berkeley

I figured, they still have their Christmas special up right now. General Hobby has the Goldwing ARF's and the 73" MXS is $400, too rich for my blood. They did just get in some nice 60" planes in, including an MXS-R.

I was only doing High Power Rocketry while at UC Berkeley. I didnít get into RC until after I left. Where do you fly?
