+1^ And the 51 Slick Good Choice I'm going to try and fly the snot out of mine tomorrow morning. Maybe even get some vids of my super mediocrity I haven't been able to get near the stick time I've been wanting lately.

And when you install the servos and see the control surface deflections, you are going to want as little slop as possible! The movement is just HUGE!

Crumb... I'm in Sebastopol. I should have dropped by before I drove to SF to buy my Slick 51 combo.

I have some 82's on the ailerons on the beater zebra 51. I only have about 10 flights on the plane but no messing with trim, and they seem a little faster. I cheaped out and saved $25 or so. Rudder has a left over hs225 and a 85mg on the elevator.

Any more info on the new Bipe?


Has anyone heard a price range of the new 3DHS bipe that is going to use the same running gear as the Slick 51?

I'm starting to itch!

The plane is an absolute blast. I am using recommended Hacker drive-line with 14x7 prop.

Absolutely Awesome.

I will save you some time on one issue that comes up again and again on this thread. Don't get overly hung up on cg location. It is difficult to get battery in and out and maintain the recommended cg. As many have posted, just center the battery over the gear and fly it. I am using Gens Ace 2500's. Fly's perfect. very neutral in this location. Plane is very forgiving in regard to battery placement (cg).

I C you are from MN... I am in Bismarck ND. If you ever make it up this way, give us a call. Two pretty good fields around here. Also planning an indoor fun fly first weekend of Feb. Great time. Will be held in an indoor golf driving range.

I expect they will. Will be very light setup. I would suggest watching discharge carefully until you are used to it. I currently fly on a 6 minute time and have about 30 second buffer. But I fly it quite hard. also, I will post what I have done for baffles.

My motor was getting fairly hot, in particular in 90+ ambient. After I baffled the motor, I can now can put finger on motor after landing with no issues. I will try and get some pics. Not very scientific I know but it was getting to hot prior to baffles.

Anyhow, I like to fly this as much as my 104". It wraps up into such tight KE Spins it is un real. Also, blenders are insane with this plane. If you like 3d, you will love this plane.

Yes I do. I have a buck huck, 48" vyper, and now a 51" slick.

I am using 4s 2200's. They are good for about 4 min flights. I like them but I'd be happier with 4000. I've been kicking around the idea of running two in parallel.

I think a 4K lipo is a bit much for the 51 slick. I ran some 3300s and you could feel the wight of those in it. The 2600s are about the perfect size lipo for it. Good flight time and the perfect weight. The pack ends up in the middle of the battery tray. Cant ask for better.
