Does anyone know of a suitable replacement to the landing gear? I really like the aluminum gear, but it's bent beyond what I can "unbend". I wouldn't mind having a set or two laying around.

I just want to get 2 RX's this week so I can fly Slickerooo and mu BFU the wkd.
yes please say it....I D I OT !!!!!

fly the best
maybe. I'm not sure how to install & build it though. is it just a larger rudder that needs to be cut out, glued together and covered? what supplies are needed to complete that rudder design?

If you do build the rudder best to use the latest version of the drawing which has a few small improvements based on findings during building:

New drawings were posted a few pages back: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...postcount=4481

Hey all, just got back from my second outing with the Slick. Unfortunately sourcing a videographer has alluded me thus far...
The first outing was a nervous trim n setup but the second was a relaxed awesome fly and I have total confidence in it.
I was harriering low n slow with absolute confidence, turning etc. The only time a wing even looked like dropping was because of my heavy rudder thumb. I can't compare the old rudder to the new coz I never flew with it, but this plane is 100 times better flyer than anything I have (not that I have anything to write home about). Thanks Steve for the rudder and I'm looking at a reserve airframe

I used the orange rx's on small foamy's with no issues, however, like all cheap products, I shy away from using them in anything I care about... I've seen many that work perfectly, and a few that have failed. When it comes to servos and rx's, I don't take any shortcuts. You should be fine using one though.

Great that it's flying well. I had mine out again this week and I'm now sure that the big rudder has no adverse effects at all. First time I tried the big rudder my pop-tops were poor but that was just my timing, they were fine this time.
For a plane with no SFG's the HK slick is great in KE. Say it in hushed tones but IMHO it's actually better than the AJ Slick in KE. The AJ will snap out of KE if you apply too much rudder, the HK Slick is more predictable, KE loops are a breeze.

Good price and has air-foiled tail feathers.......8 inch bigger wingspan. For less money.
If it can be kept at 5 lbs., it should fly well. This should be interesting..

I'm exactly the same UC, although I'm slowly moving closer to trusting them. It would be a very interesting read (maybe already out) of a decent controlled unbiased test between the 2 as I can't help wondering if the "fails" from the oranges wouldn't of happened with the real deal (barring internal failure of course),
as I haven't seen much of that from Spektrum, except the AR500 thing a couple years back...

Agreed, this plane loves KE, I even managed to start my KE mixing last outing, (only have 3 batteries for it ATM, on the X-mas list) in fact until you get into the higher alpha KE the coupling is almost non-existent, I nearly wasn't going to worry about it... All this with a slight warp in the badly made rudder of mine...
