Stuffing a Slick 360-35 Kit

PostPosted: Tue May 19, 2020 3:10 pm

Doug, would you educate us ignorant fools who stuck our necks out for one or more of your kits and have no idea on the specs for it? I've searched like a mofo but have not found any specs any where here on this site. Maybe clue us in on:

Target plane only weight and optimum all up weight?

Motor, ESC, and battery specs?

Servo recommendations?

Thanks!

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.

I'm getting back into the world of RC, and now they have digital servos. I just bought a bunch of digitals for a Four*. Will the analogs work just as well for a 3d plane?

You can use either. The little blue 9 grams are just dirt cheap is all. The last UL plane I had I ran a set of digital metal gears that where about 10 bucks a piece. Really couldnt tell any difference other than the metal gear ones will be a little more durable.

Well, hell, I said I was ignorant not stupid. Of course the lighter the better. :roll: So I am guessing that the 16 to 18 ounces is airframe only? Light little bitch, ain't she?!

You must own a piece of Value Hobbies? Or are you part of the marketing team? :lol:

So many questions in life ...

Thanks for the info! :tu:

I think I went overboard, those digital hitecs are $40.

No stock in value hobbies just a good cheap place to order stuff from. 16-18 ounces will be the all up ready to fly weight. Its easy to get to that weight. Use light covering. Parklite is great or any transparent stuff. the covering from value hobbies and hobby king work great and can cover lots of stuff as you get 15 foot long rolls. it goes down similar to ultracote

Yeah, but from my experience they will probably take a beating and last through multiple airplanes. So it may just wash out for you.

Just ribbing you on Value Hobbies. No offense meant.

My gobs! 16-18 ounces ready to fly? It'll be like trying to control a leaf in a tornado with the winds we get up here. Doug cancel my order! Wait, no, don't! I am kidding about that, but not about the wind. I'm a glutton for a challenge. Flying one of these here will certainly be that.

It will handle it. I flew mine in 5-10mph a lot. Don't worry about offending me as you havent.

Here are a couple videos of my slick or should I say Cap since I bashed it into a Cap 232.

So from an operational perspective, the analog doesn't add any benefit to control over the digital? So metal gear analog is worth the 50% cost savings?

Some of the guys here can give you better advice then I. My take is digital are usually more precise and smoother in operation than analog ... and some programmable if a guy wants to spend for the needed programmer device. Have no idea whether it's worth it for these little guys.

The metal gears are nice for the banging around that 3D birds get subjected to, providing they are all metal gears. Some ass manufacturers put in metal with a plastic main gear and call them metal geared. Guess what gear strips out.

I like to buy high torque, fast speed, and metal gears when I can. Digital are nice to have but not essential.

It sounds like I should save some money and not get the Hitecs digital, but the analog metal gear instead.

You pay your money you take your chances. Having said that, I love the high umph Hi-Tec Digitals I have in the tail of my Mojo 60. But I'll be buying cheaper money-saving ones for this small bird.

Your mileage may vary.

Out of curiosity, is there a difference between the cheap $10 motor and say a himax? I went with the emax gt on the 4* based on the recommendation of aloft.
