It took me about 10 minutes to make them. and they are made out of dollar tree foam with the paper removed on the inside, and i have a bamboo skewer running down the center of it for durability.

They look great nightfox! The new Slicko will have 2 sfgs per side but inward on the wing. Like mentioned the ones on the wing tip will compromise durability.

i can agree on the durability compromise, but i was surprised when i ran my right wing into the ground and was for sure that i had broken something, and all i heard from behind me was "oooooh, that cant be good", "ouch", and "get the trash bag" (i'm the new noob kid so they like to give me a hard time), then when i picked it up and threw it back in the air, everyone was quiet except for one guy, i heard him say, "huh....."

the only thing that happened was that small amount of dirt you can see on the tip of the SFG

Love this plane.

Hey furballll, I normally don't sell the landing gear separately because of limited supply, but if you'd like to order a couple of the wheel sets and make a note on your order I'll upgrade it to the full kits. http://www.rcplanebuilder.com/hardwa...ar-1-wheel-set

9mm EPP should be back in stock Tuesday or Wednesday.

Is the XT2206 power combo that's in stock now the new combo?

EDIT: Disregard, I see that it is new.

EDIT 2: Ordered Power Combo.
Any ETA on Slicko kits?

There are some reds in stock now. If you would like to order one I will refund you on the power combo shipping. Thanks, Kevin

I have convinced one of my flying buddies to get one with him seeing only two flights that I did. Does the power combo work well on 3s and 2s? He has some 480 3s and some 8x4.5 props. I told him that would work well, and if he wanted a more floaty plane, he could go to a 2s of about the same size, and prop up to a 9x4.5 or so, is this correct?
