they're all hucky... the 42 depending on setup can be pretty darn wild though due to energy compared to size.

Yep, a fly-in with just a couple of us would cure him up, wouldn't it!

Maybe he needs to be in Missouri May 31st thru June 3rd, huh!

setup differences mean more to the little ones than the bigger ones... not hard to make a 42 Slick into a crazy pitching/tumbling plane. But all things being equal the Edges can out-pitch the Slicks. Craziest pitch plane I've ever flown was twistedgrim's 55 Edge at the Octoberfest... crazy crazy

My 57 SC is pitchy on high rates, even with lots of expo. But if I didn't have all that throw, it wouldn't Elevator or Wall as nice. So I fly it that way and like it.

Killin me


Hopefully I can swing one of these early next year. Will be getting the exact same setup as my 71 slick. Motrolfly (of course). 280 kv swinging a 20x8 prop running 8s4000. I think that will be my ticket. Gosh that silver is just pure sex. :-)
