For me I ordered the hK slick and the Domin8trix for A$285 delivered via EMS. Freight to the USA must be a lot more.

I looked into buying the 3dhs 51" slick and almost hit the buy button from ADC and the all up airframe plus freight came to USD324.

I'll give this orange slick a run and see how it flys. Build wise it cam together very nicely today, just got some servos to add and seal the surfaces and she is ready to fly.

YOur hope for an unedited footage video is wasted. LIke I said before, I am going to fly it, edit out the dull stuff, make it only 4 minutes, and that is usually just enough to show all the manuevers. I will, however, take some of the advice from the other thread and be sure to show some uninterrupted harriers. in a sequence.

I have been through this discussion. If you actually expect a pilot or manufacturer to not make the plane look its best, your expectations are an exercise in futility. Personally, I just disagree with your position on a raw dull video from the manufaturers point of view. It would be fine for you and to dull for 95% of everyone else.

My suggestion is to sharpen your flying skills to a level that will get you a sponsor, do a couple videos, then sell them on the idea... IN the mean time, I will do my best to show the prowess of the plane.

I like the violent stuff!
I've had the pleasure and privilage to fly with AJ, Ben, Scott and the crew. And I regularly fly with 3DHS Team Pilots. I don't know everything, THEY do. I'm a highly skilled gopher. So you guys have a nice day and many happy landings to you all! And don't forget to shove the sticks in the corners!!!

I wonder if this slick will come to the USA warehouse. EMS shipping from HK to USA for this plane is $78 bucks.

For those who've already received theres, what shipping method did you use?

Also, still trying to figure out the servo hole dimensions. I have some of these I'd like to use:

Nonsense. Just leave it alone and quit cluttering up the thread. The other thread is still available for that.

So your suggesting that only some users, (mtwargo, janole) can discuss video types (unedited vs. raw)?

I just don't appreciate your attempt to censor my question. It was pertinent to the discussion others were having regarding video. I didn't see you question them.

I was posting regarding the discussion about video of the PLANE. What is your problem?

mtwargo is only responding to the requests and comments for un-edited videos. Regardless of what Michael produces, there will be some people that will not be satisfied. Even if it does the nicest KE spin and upright harriers.
