Sorry about that herc. Never messed with a soldering iron that was 100000 degrees lol.

When I got the chance to fly the extra slick I noticed it had more elevator authority. More than yak and su 29.

Well it is pretty easy to explain the difference:

1. The Extra Slick has more fuse area and more fuse area in the right place for good 3D characteristics. It also has taller fin (or fin to rear fuse ratio) which makes high alpha, high G, spins and tumbles easier to control. And last but not least, it has SFGs.

2. What all that results in is a plane that flies more similar to the larger balsa planes that we all are flying here in the States. It will be more familiar to those flying Extreme Flight or 3DHS type of planes. Conversely, skills learned with the Extra Slick will translate well back to the balsa side too.

3. Excitement level for me on this plane through the roof. When I am flying it I am saying in my mind, "Hell ya, this is exactly what I was looking for in an EPP"! For me now, the concept of Simulator to Telink to Balsa is totally complete and I am happy as a clam with this plane in my lineup.

I have a feeling that Brad will not be able to keep these in stock. They look good, fly good and make a tone of sense.

** Note on the color scheme: It looks fantastic in the air! Trust me on that..
Perfect description.

Dude really. Normally I get my courtesy PM from Brad with a linky.. I have been extremely busy with work and the kids the last few weeks. Just got back from Vegas for work the other night.

So far this week and weekend I have managed to fly 24 battery packs through my ExtraSlick. All of my other planes combined only used up 5 packs. I think I'm getting my money's worth out of this one. It stays in my car and the batteries stay in my transmitter case, very convenient.
