As I am getting ready to start cutting kits I am trying to figure out what size slabs everyone is most interested in?

My preferences very. Right now I'm loving the 35" and light 46" sizes (like the lamsuk and your UL 46" slick) because batts and servos for them are cheap. Easy, quick builds and I can fit a fleet in the car and fly anywhere. But I also like 20cc size a LOT :lol:

40 size and smaller are tons of fun and are cheap and easy but 20cc and larger just fly and present so well in the air.

I echo Woodpilot, 20cc, and 24"-46" wingspans, for cost, transport convenience, and smaller field capabilities.

I love the ease of just throwing a couple 48" slabs in my truck, but I really love the way my Slide 58" and the RadYak 57" fly with a 1.20 on the front.

I really like Ian's 50 size birds a lot. Good 6.5-7 minutes on a 3000mAh 6S.
40 size is great as well.

My grandson and I have been having fun with your Slicks and Yak. Lately I've been giving a lot of thought to a 55" to 60" 20cc slab.

I voted for 35" park flyers, but I like 40 size electric as well. Your slick 360ul was one of my all time favorite planes.

me, i prefer 2.5 lb. 44" lamyak on 3s for electric, or go 20cc gasser for bigger stuff.. doug, you gotta do a 7-7.5 lb. 20cc gasser ul slick!!!

take some cues from the "wild hooker" thread, and go to town. thing will be awesome! https://us6.proxysite.com/process.php?d ... qnM%3D&b=1

There is a market out there for 60 size slabs with DLE20's. For example the Mojo 65 with a DLE 20 is no where near as fun as the Mojo 60 is with the same engine.

Tweaking the plans just a tad (for those new to slabs) and re-issuing the Primo and Mojo 60 for 20cc gas..... and I bet you would sell a few.
Mojo 60 120AX BCP
MadYak 55AX CCP
Primo 40 - RIP
Wild Tiger TT46 CCP
Sig Ultimate Profile
Crack Yak
Griffwerks Bipe
Sabre 35
Aj Laser DA35
Sbach 65 DLE 20
Tai Ji 60
Sbach 65 Dle 20
Mojo 65 OS GT22
3dhs slick OS33GT
3dhs Edge 540 DA35

I think Doug is trying to plan ahead on the most popular two sizes for his designs.

I am definitely with the group and love to fly the 40size planes, Doug G MXS and LRC slick are my favs. But I do like my mojo 60 on a 20cc. I might be in need of another 60 size build as well.
Moass 60 20cc DLE
Moass 60 motrolfly
CCK-LRC 20cc Slick in da bones
LRC Slick 48" 4S elec
MXS 52" Doug G design...everyone needs one of these!
3DHS 60" Slick
Carbon Z Prometheous
Slick 360-35 X 3
