Thanks gary, sent over address and those dimensions for the vinyl you were looking for. Keep me updated on how it goes! And let me know if you find a good cheaper alternative!

Me neither. I only said it feels different than my 72 Extra which has sfg's and that the extra felt terrible without them.

I'm very interested to hear what the result is of playing around and putting sfg's on the 51 slick. It's a great flying plane as-is.

Somehow the desire to experiment for experiment's sake got misconstrued into a criticism of the plane and "it can't HAKE" which is ridiculous.

OK all better now let's all go fly.

HAKE can be a little fragile on the Slick.
Ok guys... No offense but I think you guys are taking liberties with my words. Never did I EVER say that the 51" Slick can NOT HAKE. I simply stated that, IMHO, that KE flight is the weakest attribute of the 51" Slick. The 51" Slick is the best all around plane BY FAR that I've ever flown.

I mean - please read my original post above. I specifically pointed out that the plane performs very well in KE.

My only point is that there are other planes that perform in KE better. The 48" Edge is one example. I'm sure there are others. My point wasn't that it CANNOT perform HAKE. I know that it can.... I've done it. It does them just fine.

It's just my opinion. And maybe it's because I'm an inferior pilot and don't know how to pull off a HAKE but my point was simply that HAKE is not a strength of the 51" Slick. Again - just my opinion based on my experience with the 48" Edge.

Just picked up my motrofly 3615-750 but had a question.
Is it best to drill the firewall for the power wire and route them through the fiberglass x-mount or should I route them outside of the hole in the mount then tie them down tight to avoid them rubbing on the outer motor housing ?
If anyone could post a pic of how they mounted this motor on the Slick would be even better

doh!

The motor will have some spacers (1/4" IIRC) and you don't need to do either. With the spacers the motor wires will bend around and be able to fit in front of the firewall.

Only got one flight in this morning on the 51, but I did enough to say that it flies jut like my 70", which is awesome!
The firepower 46 put out plenty of power with a 15x7 APC e-prop. About 52-53 amps and 800+ watts, which was more than enough!
I'll report more later after I get a few more flights with it.

Good to know, just ran numbers on the Torque 720 motor and I was getting 900w on 59a on a 14x7... I wasn't sure what people shoot for with this frame...

900 watts is PLENTY I was really happy with between 700 and 800. My last setup was around 860 and I loved it.

Shoot, 800w was plenty. I was surprised how well it preformed at 800, as I have 900+ on my 48" Laser... But I guess 900+ on a 13x6.5 is different than 800+ on a 15x7.
My guess is the RPMs were nice and high?

I thought we were past this...but

Perhaps when discussing we should talk in first person.

Example....in my case......this plane can't do rollers very well. it's a weak point in the 51.

should be.....I can't do rollers very well with this plane. But I know in the proper hands it does them just fine.

nuff said.

'Nuff said? Except that wasn't what he said nor was it his point.

I've seen videos of turnerm do circle after circle of HAKE.


(i got ur back homie)


I think his point was more along the lines of a 48 EDGE will HAKE with left hand only and no mixing. None of my 3 slicks have been able to do that.
