Red Slick! It is a very well built airframe. They use very nice wood, or at least on this one. Couple of places I will beef up a little but overall a quick easy build with pretty decent fiberglass and hatch!

Sukhoi will likely see the MVVS 175NP.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Jealous again.... fantastic colour.
The slick seems to be made only for the quads... twins under 200cc need not apply?

The 175 will be working hard? The Sukh ain't small

The instantaneous torque of a Quad is hard too match by any twin, related or not, no?

The 175 is as strong as the 190....Had lots of smaller engines on planes as big or bigger, they powered them no problem....I'm not a vertical plane racer!

Watched the Sukhoi fly with a DA 170 on RE3's....handled it very easily!

Fuse is huge, rest of it is really not much bigger than 43-45% planes.

Hanes, are you referring to the 3DHS Slick? It is classed as a 45%.
My signature today reflects my Hanger 9 Sukhoi. I have no Slick.
