Well maiden my slick today as well, after I got the cg right "3rd flight" then I could tell just how well the 51 AJ can fly. My 1st 3dhs plane was a 42" slick but my skill level had not developed to where it is now to appreciate the slick. Man I am going to luv the 51. I don't know how much flight time the 48" edge will see anymore, but that is still a awesome plane too. Now I can work on my torque rolls on the deck with 48 edge because I got a 51 looking at me

I have some parts from my red v1 51 slick that are available if anyone wants them.

*One good wing (can't remember which so if you need it let me know and I'll check)
*Wing Tube, fiberglass sleeve that goes with it.
*Complete tail feathers
*Canopy (in decent shape but has had a few hundred flights)

PM me if interested... I just want the cost of shipping-ish. Not looking to make much if anything off these parts. I just want someone to have a chance to get them before I decide to have a viking funeral.

I took delivery of my new 51 slick today. I spent a couple hours on the build. I got the tail feathers hinged and the pull-pull rudder set up. Got the ailerons glued on the wings. So that leaves three control surfaces to set up and electronics, cowl, and landing gear. Shouldn't take more than another couple hours or so to finish it up. Maybe I'll be able to maiden her on Friday

I took re-delivery of my beater yellow last night. Thought my batterys were all dying. I would put a bigger 4000 in it and it tested good on the floor. But just got a new Hailyn 2650 30-40c and it did the same thing in flight. Run fine for about 1 minute, then seem like the battery was drained. Swapped out the ESC and all is good again. Hmmm, no smoke, no smell, but I guess when it got warm it wasn't letting juice through. But it was a 2yo Turnigy plush 80a. All I had was a turnigy 60, we'll run with that. Now do I fix the gear or not.

Did you put a wattmeter on it to see how many amps your pulling?

If I recall I was getting about 55-58. But not on the old esc. It's in the garbage. I run a A30 and my slick has never been overpowered..just the way I like it!

Might want to check for loose magnets if your still getting issues. The A30 motors if used in 'stick banging' type 3D (KE spins being the worst) often suffer from rubbing between the stator and the magnets which can knock the magnets loose. The rubbing can also cause overheating and damage to the windings.

It's cooking My elevator servo was acting up a bit... having a real hard time finding the center so it isn't very smooth flying... still fun though.
