That's my rc slick 360. And I was wondering what other people thought of it. I personally love it. But I also just found out my girlfriend doesn't like the colour scheme.

I've been thinking about it after I spent the last 2 days doing simple adjustments on it and I want to find out what people think before I crash it and it brakes.

I think it's an amazing plane, if I had ever owned a R/C plane that cool, I would have hesitated to fly out.

Thanks. And Takeoffs are always terrifying. Its worth getting out to fly though.

i only have two RC cars.. always too scared of planes .. every crash is mostly fatal 😂 and expensive

Not all planes have fatal crashes. I fact my first plane took all the crashes I cloud give it. It was a supercub and never fully broke. I cant say it's perfect for everyone but for me it's one of the best things I've done.

Wcallum, thats great :D maybe i'll try one day ^^ ..the only flying thing i have at home are two cheap little quadcopters ^^
Xena
Hell yeah
Xena
Can you actually stear?
WcallumAuthor
I guess. The ailerons roll it from side to side. And the rudder pulls it to one side. But its a 3D plane so can do a hell of a lot more than that.
Xena
So don't crash it. Seriously. Land it. It is easier than you might thing. Just make sure the front wheels are very free spinning. I had one faceplant and snap a propeller I has made for it. Seriously. The front wheels need to be free and oiled up properly. The back one might as well be a wooden peg, it will slow it down.

Xena, haha. Thanks. I will do my best not to.
Xena
A plane I made myself. I'll try and get you what I moddled it after
Xena
http://plag.com/post/1391535852/ The propeller is in fact at the back of the plane.

Xena, wow. That's nice. It Looks really twitchy.
Xena
It is a beautiful plane. It flies so well. To be honest, at the start the only movement I got out of it was twitching. It got better though
Xena
In the game it is the first plane your start with. Man it is more fun in real life. I strapped minimalized paintball guns on it. It is beautiful
WcallumAuthor
Xena, I've never played it. And that's not a bad idea.
Xena
I painted a barn rainbow.
Xena
Even the inside^
Xena
The turning circle is so small and the wings are so good that you can have it make a circle 3 feet in radius.
Xena
It can... fly. Fast. It is able to race a motor boat. (Those small ones, a bit larger than a canoe. About 60-80km/h)
Xena
That's what happens when you make it yourself. It is aluminum, so it is very solid, and the engine is a harley davidson engine. It started small and got bigger.
Xena
I changed the engine for it to be 8 mini adorable pistons. It fits very well, and it is all aluminum and rubber. So it is super light.
Xena
I am able to pick it up, and it is longer than I am tall, also I'm only 105 pounds so idk. I never weighted it
Xena
I'm about 5' tall
Xena
You just gave me an idea. I control it with a joystick I usually use for my computer for flight sim games. If I make it slightly bigger, for which I have the budget, I install a seat and the stearing things, I could totaly fly it.
Xena
Too lazy.

Just in case anyone is interested. Its not me flying but its the same type of plane. Just a different scheme. https://youtu.be/lf77YB_ed5U

Kit. I guess. It was pre assembled though. A long time ago.
