I have a clik that flies great indoors but cannot handle much wind. This Slick flies great indoors and in wind up to about 5 mph. It has a lot more power than the clik. The little wheels are fine on pavement outside but I went without the wheel pants that want to snag on everything. Tried both the regular and high power battery and prop options. The high power can go very fast but the plane is just fine and does everything with the regular power setup. The build took about 2 days with some glue drying delays along the way. I found the little tiny parts very hard to handle but finally got through it. Also it's very easy to see in the air.
This a cool little airplane! The build was easy. The first time I flew this plane felt like I've been flying it for years! It will do anything you ask of it. I can't wait to try it out on a calm day, or indoors somewhere.
Build went together smoothly, the process takes a bit of patience as there are a lot of parts during the build you want to take your time on and allow the glue to setup before moving on to the next step.
I used the following electronics found on Hobby King for a lot cheaper than what TH sells their recommended electronics for:
- Turnigy 2205/34 1500kv Brushless Motor
- 2X Turnigy™ TGY-50090M Analog Servo 20T MG 1.6kg / 0.08sec / 9g
- 1X Turnigy D561MG Coreless DS/MG Servo 24T 1.3kg/0.08sec/7.5g
- Afro 12A UltraLite Multi-Rotor ESC V3 W/BEC (SimonK Firmware)
- GWS Style Slowfly Propeller 9x4.7 Black (CCW) (5pcs)
This setup worked perfectly, plenty of power for climb outs and no bad tendencies.
Overall I would definitely recommend this plane to anyone looking for a good plane to fly with little fear of crashing as it takes a lot of abuse! I will definitely be buying more TH planes!
After more flying, I really like this plane. It is very predictable in the air, and handles light winds with ease. It hovers nicely. Knife edge flight is great, even without SFG's.
I put 1.25" diameter ultra lightweight wheels on mine, and am glad I did. They are still too small for taking off and landing on grass, but I can taxi much better on grass with them. And it handles much better on pavement with the larger wheels.
This is my 2nd Twisted Hobbys plane. I found it to be an easy build, with a good instruction manual. Kit and fabrication quality was excellent. Everything went together well.
Outstanding flying plane. I really like it.
I have come to realize that I don't like side force generators on planes, so I left them off of this plane, and am glad I did. Unless you only fly 3D in zero wind (which is not my case), then SFG's are more of a hindrance than help. With any wind at all, SFG's make a plane do really stupid, unpredictable things in the air.
