Well,pm Doug, got plans in the works. Just how much battery does it need and what motor. You guys must be back at work,things done slowed down.

Plug- stole this from BalsaDust. I used this set up with 1300 3s batteries and haven’t had any trouble :tu: or you could always just buy a good fishin rod instead :lol: :lol: :lol: thank you straight up :tu: I’m sure you have a good recommendation for this little slab if plug wanted to spend a little more.

Shoot for around 16-18 ounces but the lighter the better. There is also lots of other setups you can run but that is the basic cheap setup from value hobbies. Get 3 or 4 batteries. You can run a 1300mah 3S lipo as well for a little longer flight time but at the cost of a heavier airframe.

Thanks guy,you liked the string,got a smile. :rofl: Motors are messed up,so hard to understand, and how to say this is better than that. But you guys not lead me wrong,well maybe,them servos junk. Trust me,i tell no joke,it changed my plane so much,words are enought,if you have a foam with china servos,change just al servo,you will thank me. On ebay, now,jr micro, new, 12.99 free shipplng. Them batts,you right,takes 3 to get much fly time. When a plane is right,its so much fun to fly. On last note,may have send DR to FL,help cool things down. Yes, you are. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: Hope i did not over step,devel made me do lt. Cant spell shit plug. :dk:

:lol: :lol: definitely not overstepping. I think it’s good stuff :rockoncool: I probably have 100 flights on mine without issues but haven’t smacked the ground yet. On another note, i “had” a little ultimate that flew like shit and decided to use it for combat with these servos. After a mid air collision and crash one servo was completely stripped. In a long run, it’s worth a few extra bucks for the good shit :cash:

a string or gyros. no one can fly like that. a right hand pattern is enough to make most crash.

Or one could just build a WF lamyak then you won’t need a gyro :lol:

:lol: it is the easiest plane to hoover/harrier out there. ask the man who owns one.

i think i was just 10-15 years ahead of my time. same with the foam construction, too much of a leap.

Do you have any build threads on here of a foam airframe? I’d like to lean more about it. Never tried it.

a shitload. look in experimental designs. anything posted by wild fred. foam lamyak, wild hooker, wild crazed, foamerita. even foam for dummies by hooks, who i enlightened years ago.

look at wee-38 thread, it's the coolest thing.

Now,just think,if WF wrote a book,with pics,of all his builds would you buy it. How much could be learned,a life time of good airframes,how to do foam,how to build light,how to build cheap. Would you buy it,i would with great thanks. A WF pro bro book,with extra trimmings. I got 40.00, how bout you. Not joking, help me talk him into it.

HI Doug - it's been a while. Are you still going to put together kits for the Slick 360-35?

Spring is in the Air. :drink:

just look through the experimental designs forum, over 15 years of wf builds, step by step, with pics. feel free to compile them and get them published, i split the profits...

... but i ain't gonna be your proofreader! :lol: :lol: :lol:

While Doug put the post out, he never produced the kits. He was real busy with work.

Does anyone have a recommendation on where I can get a short kit cut for one of these. I was hoping Doug would have cut a few by now, but he's real busy.

Profile kits are getting really tough to find now days. I highly recommend pick up one of these used on the cheap. You won’t regret it. You could cut two short kits at the same time in one evening :tu: I use small screws for doubling up pieces to cut more in one pass. Use a Elmers glue stick for paper templates. Peels right off. No mess
