| 42" AJ SLICK updated version
Now with new color schemes, carbon fiber landing gear mount, and one-piece heavy-duty carbon landing gear.
Based on the new, full-size aerobatic Slick 360/540 Andrew Jesky's 42" AJ Slick raises the bar for parkflyer precision/3D aircraft. Featuring all of the 3DHobbyShop construction innovations, like a pre-assembled heavy-duty motor box with pre-drilled and pre-nutted firewall, heavy-duty carbon wing spar, thumb-screw wing attachment, aluminum wheel axles and collars, latching canopy hatch with pre-installed canopy - the 42" Slick ARF will get you in the air quickly and easily. Removable wings make for easy transport while the stiff carbon wing tube withstands the very high G-loading of extreme aerobatics.
Andrew gave the Slick his personal airfoil design, which provides no-rock harrier performance AND great precision in snapping maneuvers. Stability, stability, stability is what the design provides, locking into knife-edge flight without any wandering and handling crosswind conditions better than you'll believe. All the much-loved characteristics of the 51", 71", and 89" AJ Slicks are here in this 42" version.

The HS-45HB is only for use with very light setups such as the 72g Omega or 480-sized outrunners. Being a very light servo, it requires perfect installation for best performance. The HS-65MG is a heavier, but much more rugged servo that is more forgiving of less-than-perfect installation.
Note: that the servo openings on the slick are sized to use either of these servos, so they will need slight trimming for perfect fit.
