The Razor on the other hand is built for both electric and glow power plants. Imagine trying to put a glow motor on your same sized PA Addiction 3D. The Addiction probably wouldn't even make it through one flight before the motor vibrated off the motor box.
So not quite an apple to apple comparison there.
As far as landings go the Razor actually will slow down quite nicely. The key to the landings are to establish a nice shallow decent rate while maintaining a small amount of power right up to the flare.
Hope that helps some.
Thanks for the quick reply.... Well, you made me feel a little better! One more question though... instead of the recommended 3300mAh lipo, I'm using a Turnigy Nano-tech 4500 6s. It fits in the plane easily without modifying the canopy framework but it is 165 grams (6 oz) heavier than the same type in a 3300mAh. Is this worth buying the latter version. I'm currently using the 4500 version in my 71" Slick from 3D Hobby. I figured to save on purchasing more batteries. What's your feeling on this?
By the way, The Monokote covering was sooo hard to work with, there was no way I could make the plane look "perfect"
so I stripped it and recovered with Ultrakote. It looks really great now!
