    RE: what to get aeroworks 3dhs

    You know your right the slick is starting to get out dated . I never thought about that . The slick I just flew was the older 70" blue and sliver . It flew 3d in wind as good as the 100cc planes on market I felt like I was flying a big plane

    I like the slick very much but I bet the 260may float better with a 79" wing I'm really hoping to hear from one who has flown both

    RE: what to get aeroworks 3dhs

    is the updated slick still using a glue in stab and elevator joiner?
    the price is nearly the same, the 260 offers a lot more in design.

    RE: what to get aeroworks 3dhs

    yes I had new 260, cant comment much on flight, as she kamakazeed in on maiden due to electronic issues, but assembly was fast and easy and solid, and its a decent size with a few nice extra touches, sure the slick is a proven airframe, but at the same cost the 260 is a better buy in m opinion.
    yes, if you read various forums comments, they all give the AW 260FS 2 thumbs up.
    I am getting another with out doubt at all.

    RE: what to get aeroworks 3dhs

    Yeah the wife was pissed
    She also liked the plane, and I have alot of them
    The size was nice
    , big enough, but fits in a 4 dr sedan for
    An everyday flier
    I searched the 30cc market for a long ,and if you
    Want a top of the line plane the aw is way ahead
    Of pilot and others
    I would also consider the extreme flight extra
    300 in 30cc, but i already have their 50cc one

    RE: what to get aeroworks 3dhs

    I am getting another too
    The only thing is, these don't have a canister
    Tunnel, the dle 30 is loud on stock muffler, not a problem
    If your field is not noise sensitive
    I think TBM sells a plug for the stock muffler
    To bring the dcb down

    RE: what to get aeroworks 3dhs

    The 35 bolts right up and template is provided.i put the dle 35
    In mine with canister.
    It just needs 1/4 spacers to get cowl
    Distance. I simply made them from wood ( 1 inch Diam? )
    Dowel and drilled the center out for bolts
    Some said the el servos may touch each
    If you have a deep case. I had clearance
    On mine, but easy enough to use a shim if needed
    Everything else was simple.
    Enjoy

    RE: what to get aeroworks 3dhs

    260 Freestyle with the DLE 35RA is an amazing model! Engine is perfect and it flies on rails. It excels in every portion of flight except slow flat spins. SFG's are to blame there but still a great model. Only negative thing to put would be the construction around the gear mount isn't the strongest. By the way, Aero-works is making a 50cc and 100cc size freestyle soon.

    RE: what to get aeroworks 3dhs

    Yes
    Comes with the 260 freestyle logos and some
    Other stuff. Some said they were translucent
    And had new ones cut
    I never applied mine, so not sure on quality
    Or how see through they are,
    But you do get a full sheet with
    Large logos

    RE: what to get aeroworks 3dhs

    Be a very fast swap to the 35, if you think the 30
    Is not enough,
    Some said the 35 was almost too much, maybe
    The 30 will do if at lower elevation

    I'm running a Xoar 19x8. It pulls well. I had the 20x8 on it at one time. It pulled pretty hard but lost speed. The sound was amazing with the 20 though. Had a great rip
