Awesome! Mine should be here soon, looking forward to flying it!

Edit: added some build pictures. I was in a rush to finish it so it's not as detailed as it should be. If you have any big questions, refer to the Crack Yak thread, as the build is pretty much the same: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1578833

I found my CG to work best at about 2.75" back from the leading edge. This meant my battery was right in front of the aileron servo.

Edit: video!

Sweet!! Pulled the trigger on this, the power combo, landing gear, and 8 gensace lipos from hobbypartz. Can't wait for it to get here!

Was leaning towards the 3DHS offerings, but they've been out of stock I didn't want to wait anymore for a 30" epp plane. Planning on using this as my "Hey, that area is big enough to fly" plane when I'm out and about.

Looks really nice. I recently ordered the first in the crack series and other than the tail pushrod set up it went together very quick and the absents of carbon truss on the tail and using the 45 cut epp strips for rigidity instead is nice and does the job fine,should go much easier for those new to assembling epp kits. The epp pre hinged control surfaces cut a lot of time off the build as well and as long as you use decent quality servos control authority and centering is fine. Any chance these planes will be available in a discounted unprinted version? The color scheme is really nice but i realize it drives up the price considerably to have the print work applied.

Sweet! Can't wait. Hopefully it'll ship soon so I can start the build. Was going to pull the trigger on the crak-yak (still may), but went to order that one today and saw this and changed my mind! This just looks way cooler IMO, and I figure from what I've seen about TH, you can't go wrong.

I need to replace my olds Slick, the KE into a tent pole did it in Way to much glue on it now.

Anyway, will the old 8amp esc work with the new motor needed for this slick? I'm affraid if I added the piece back to the motor to switch it to a flush mount it would change the intended CG area...
