Video with Aura 8 and ProModeler Servos


Doc,

Do you have video of your 52" Slick equipped with an Aura 8 and ProModeler servos where you can hear the motor sounds?

Also, do you know if the latest shipment of 52" Slicks have an improved under carriage/landing gear bay/landing gear block?

As time goes on improvements are made and refinements are implemented.

No, but the video of the 48" Extra with ProModeler servos and raw soundtrack is on the 48 Extra thread.

I haven't see a Slick kit in over 2 years. My yellow one just keeps going and keeps going. I'de love to build another one but I've already got three of them.

Anyone other than Doc flying a 52" Slick (or any other EF RC 52" plane) with ProModeler DS150CLHV servos?

Love to hear/read/see how the 52" planes perform with premium servos.

When I switched my 52" Slick to MKS 69HV servos the plane went from C+ to A in my opinion.

I imagine a switch to ProModeler DS150CLHV servos will take a 52" Slick EXP to A+!

I can't comment on this plane or those servos, but I can tell you that the difference between MKS 777 A+ servos and the DS345BLHVs that I run in my 74-75" planes 'was' night and day.

So, you're going to switch? Or did you already order some?

Looking at getting another 52” Slick EXP and equipping it with the best equipment including the ProModeler DS150CLHV servos!

The 52” Slick EXP suits my style and the flying areas near my current residence.

When will the 69” Turbo Raven be available?

Maybe my absolute favorite, second only to the 48" Extra.

Speaking of which, I'de really like to see you get a 48 Extra V2 too, That one will suit your smaller flying fields extremely well, and with an Aura it tracks like a pattern plane.

Hmm... Tracks like a pattern plane... Now that’s intriguing and inviting...

When will the 48” Extra EXP V2 be available? When will the ProModeler servos for the 48” planes be available?

The best and the best make for better than the best synergy!

Forgive this intrusion, but I'm in need of advice and/or suggestions by those who grok Instagram. I just made our 4th post regarding our servos.
https://www.instagram.com/p/B1CGU_AHPGy/
. . . and because I'm still feeling my way around IG, I don't know if this, or any of the three prior ones are good, or not.

Anyway, I figured this might be a good place to solicit savvy advice. Oh, and I've just figured out one of the hashtags was dumb because it pertains to plastic models vs. RC - oops! Anyway, please contact me via PM, or via email - [email protected] - to preclude hijacking this thread further. Thank you!
