Extra Extra, read all about it, no this is not an Extra 3D but a fabulous slick and an eye candy of a plane, the Slick 360 3D with a 51″ inch wing span, beautiful orange gray and white decals, one hot aerobatic RC model designed for extreme 3D aerobatics, gosh do I want this plane, i just wish it was a 40″ wingspan so i would be able to fit it in my car.
Take a look at the cowl, canopy and wheel pants as they have been finished in a deep gloss paint, dont you just want to take a bite out of it.
In there own words:
“The H-King Slick 360 performs every inch as good as it looks, naturaly it makes for a great sport plane but it would be fair to say that hardcore 3D is what the Slick has been designed for. The precision of the airframe, stunning looks, top line quality and amazing feather weight specs make the Slick 360 a must have plane for all aerobatic and 3D pilots!”
Now for those who are looking to purchase the precision aerobatics Extra MX which is priced at around $300 with shipping plus the worlds most unsatisfying customer service, think twice. The Slick 360 3D is priced at $114 from Hobby King, a price you cannot beat although the wingspan is 7″ shy of the MX.
One feature to note on this slick 360 plane is the elevator, which has an airfoil, this is a trait you find in PA planes, even more of a reason to stay away from precision aerobatics.

Top quality construction and covering
Ultra light weight but strong airframe

Here is the latest Toy from hobbyking, the Yak 54, an amazing size of 50″ wing span, i just wonder how this beauty will fly. Of course my only concern with this Yak is its weight. For those of you who have flown or have heard of precision aerobatics, the key to their success is their light weight planes. HK says ” its built and covered ultra-light aerobatic model that… Continue reading
