I think MCDDD could convince us to buy a 2x4 at home depot and put an engine on it, I bet he could 3d that too. Awesome skills :rockoncool: :rockoncool:
Scratch built slabs, nitro power, any questions!! :rockon:

Don't go off that, he makes a spad3d look like a viable all around 3d plane

Steve-
A 2x4 is easy to 3D given enough power. Did you end up selling that cement mixer Stan wanted? I'll bet McDDD could 3D that with ease!

The stix is one of the best "all arounder" birds currently available on the market. I really enjoyed flying them the last few times I've had the chance. The cap is more capable in the flip and snap capabilities but is also a bit shorter coupled and therefore more sensitive at speed.

If anybody is looking for an EVO Cap kit, I have one new in box still that I would sell for what I have in it. Paid 150 from Ian, plus 12 shipping. You can have this one for $160 shipped to you if anybody wants it...
I'm never going to get around to building it I don't think.

I'm thinking of using one of two Hackers on 6S. I have an A40-14S and an A40-12S.

Finally covered mine. Started out with some light weight transparent red stuff and had numerous issues with it folding back on itself and sticking together. Then I burned a hole through it trying to remove a couple of wrinkles. Got pissed off and pulled it off (only one wing panel was covered at this point) and used Monokote instead. Total weight of airframe, tube and covering is 1 lb 15 oz.

At 4lbs 4oz this efag slab is a hoot. Great flight times and bro powah. At first I was concerned about going efag but I'm glad that I did. I just can't say enough about this one very nice Ian.

No that's with the battery. I thought it was really light. Not sure why, but I am picky about wood, glue, servos. It does seem that most of mine come out very light. At first I thought my scale was off but I double checked them.

Wow, 4lb 4oz, yours is the lightest yet. I think Mine was 4lbs 6oz or so. Glad you're enjoying it! Its fun to see them starting to really pop up as more and more people build them.
