Extreme Flight 52" Slick 580 EXP - RC Groups

Extreme Flight 52" Slick 580 EXP

Extreme Flight is very excited to announce the latest release in its mid-size electric aerobatic series, the 52 inch Slick 580 EXP. Taking its design cues from the award winning 120cc Extreme Flight Slick 580.

Announcing the new 52" Slick 580!

Extreme Flight RC's latest release was designed in conjunction with Jase Dussia, the brand new 52" Slick 580 EXP takes the innovations of the previous EXP designs to the next level. Using a mix of balsa, light ply, carbon fiber and G10 composites the Slick is extremely light weight for its size and built to take all the high G punishment you can throw at it.

Just like its predecessor, the Extreme Flight 52" Extra 300 EXP, the new Slick 580 EXP was designed around the Xpwr 3910 and Airboss 80 Amp ESC power combo. This powerhouse combo delivers maximum performance and reliability for this class of model using a 4S 2500-3300 mah battery and a 14x7-15x7 electric prop. All flight testing was performed with the Hitec 5087MH servos. We recommend the use of 3 of the Extreme Flight 1.25" lightweight servo arms for aileron and rudder actuation. The elevator uses a custom G10 servo arm extension included in the kit. The Slick 580 EXP requires a 57mm Extreme Flight electric spinner.

Here is a link to the Slick 580 EXP PDF.

Servo extensions are as follows:

  • 2-18" Extreme Flight 28 awg extensions for the elevator and rudder servos
  • 2-6" Extreme Flight 28 awg extensions for the ailerons

The 52" Slick 580 features 2 very sexy Ultracote (Oracover) color schemes designed by Extreme Flight graphic artist Arron Bates. Both color schemes are highly visible in the air and provide great contrast from top to bottom.

The 52" Slick 580 EXP sells for $239.95 and will be offered with several money saving options including a combo with the Xpwr/Airboss power system. The 52" AND new 74" Slick are due to arrive at our warehouse next Tuesday March 7. Due to a conflict at the port our previously reported date of March 3rd has been moved back to the 7th. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, this is completely beyond our control.

Specifications:

  • Wingspan: 52 inches
  • Length: 51.5 inches
  • Wing Area: 565 square inches
  • Weight: 3.75-4 pounds

We developed and flight tested the 52" Slick at our partner factory in China, to achieve a super-light, super-strong airframe. One cool feature is the self-jigging horizontal stab assembly which save time and effort. The 52" builds extremely quickly.

It just slides in from the back, very similar to the 74".

3D? I only got two thumbs!
Nice! I probably won't get this size (trying to limit the number of different battery sizes I have to maintain), but it's real nice seeing the nifty new construction techniques spread across the line!

Anyone know anything about the Pulse flat pack 3300 batteries? It's a shape better suited for helicopters but should fit on a plane tray.

Hopefully they have a lot coming. I hope they don't sell out in the first few hours.
