I see the 34" Edge are available, but the 38" Slicks are not available..

I'm curious how slowly they can fly. It'd be nice to have a larger plane (for wind purposes) that I can still keep in a relatlively small area.

Well, with the 3DHS 33" Extra, it hovers extremely easy, and with some high alpha, I can walk it around my back yard.. That's why I'm excited about the 38" Slick..

I am not sure about there foam airplanes but from what I have been told none of there balsa planes are made in the U.S. They also don't advertise "made in USA" on there website so that maybe a clue. But you are supporting a US based company. So that is good.

No, there balsa planes are not made here, but there foamys are. Still at least there balsas are designed here. Just my opinions, I do not mean any disrespect to any other r.c airplane company's out there, such as r.c. factory. I am sure there planes fly great, I just was saying I would rather pay a little extra money for something made in the USA than something made elsewhere.

I will have to weight a couple weeks to order mine, I could not resist the 34'' edge and had to order one. This plane is next on my list.

It's great that the 3DHS design team moved to a servo on each surface for the ailerons for the 38" Slick. Thank you..This is the way..

So I guess 1300 packs would be too heavy?.....
