Can't wait to get my 89" gas Slick in the air, this will be my first gas plane, just waiting on the DA 60 and Jtech Pitts muffler to get here then assemble and maiden !! -------Question, I've seen restraints or hold downs that go in front of the the stabilizer to hole the plane while you start it, are these a good idea for a gas newbie. If so, where might I fine them.

3 Flights on mine now....but on the first flight.....(even though it was a little HIGH....) I got a snap on takeoff.....harriers....KE spins.....KE flight....hovering......and a BUTTER smooth landing.....now I understand.

The 87SHP I've had since SEFF this year put me into perfect confidence with this airframe right off the bat.....and when the DA fired up on about 10 flips and ran PERFECT.....it's a very comforting feeling......
it only took about 5 trim steps on elevator (only 1 click of NORMAL size trim)......and 6 on aileron....(click and a half).....I think the aileron trim has a little to do with the prop wash off that DA.....it's powerful.....there's a LITTLE roll with throttle advance.....thrust line felt perfect though....

....On the 2nd and 3rd flights it was snap-to-hovers.......even a tailsiding hover.......this plane is gonna teach me a LOT........I'm confident that I can get it on the DECK sometime soon.......this is cool. I'm really excited about this plane......

And earlier in the week, I was amazed by the 70 slick maiden.....I got several flights on that also today.......What a day......What a WEEK!!!! "

Graphics shamelessly cut myself.....copied from Nick's scheme available at NACHO's Cheese.........if you like the Graphics....talk to NICK.......I'm NOT in the sign business....I only decorate my planes......

Now for a red-bull package on that 70 slick......
Congratulations !!!! Oh, and I nominate all 3 pics for customer awesomeness !!!!!!!!!! Especially the center pic !

My 70" Slick lost power in a low hover today, motor just quit, still had control. busted the firewall up pretty bad, broke a few other pieces. bent the shaft on the motor. not bad considering it dropped from 10ft on to its nose.
motor worked afterwards, I'm guessing my CC 100 ice lite esc burped. I never cheched to see if it was on the recall list. Guess I should have.
I'll send it back and see what they say.

Yes, if you are forced to fly by yourself, holdbacks are a necessity. Never start your gas plane without something very reliable holding it back, for your safety. We needed a new one around here, we got our latest from Fisher Fuel Products at the Fl. huckfest, although I don't see them listed on their site yet.

Had similar issue with 68 Velox last week running ICE 100. Lost motor but still had control of servos. ????

Trailer is much easier.....you don't have to unload planes when you get home. Also works for extra storage.

Awesome topic. I'm looking for something in the Spring for my planes. Biggest is the 87" SHP.

I'm thinking an enclosed 5x8. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Save yourself the hassle and get bigger than you think you need because you will need it by next spring

btw: Saturn Vue, one GS and a couple smaller ones without a passenger

+1 ....... Hence the 89 Slick, and powering it with Electons.....

Home Owners Association may be desperate enough to allow me back on in time for a 103" or larger.....Bylaws come and go

Minimum 5x10 is what I'd recommend. That will "insure" you for future wishes . My 5x10 will fit a 126" Slick (very tightly I might add). It's also the largest "standard" size that will readily fit inside a garage. My 6x12 V nose fits, but I had it custom built to be shorter than your typical 6x12.
