The new Slick SuperLITE has been developed by world air games competitor and leading indoor pilot Jan Spatny and represents a new take on the side-to-side thrust vectoring design of the existing Edge 540 v3 SuperLITE. The stock servo setup includes 3 servos for a traditional R/A/T/E setup. The rudder servo can optionally be hooked up to the side-to-side vectoring motor mount and then you can do anything you can think of with this plane! Its lightweight 4mm EPP construction means it has flying quality associated with the best that milled depron has to offer, while being much much stronger and less susceptible to spontaneously turning into confetti at the sight of another indoor model in your local sports hall.
The recommended power set uses the higher kv AT2204 motor (2200kv) with 2s and a tough 8×4 propeller. We do not recommend the GWS slow fly propellers with this setup due to the relatively high RPM, especially if you setup the plane with the sideways thrust vectoring.
The wingspan is a convenient 830mm (Just under 33 inches) which is big enough to make it floaty when required but not too big to go in the car. Construction will be relatively easy for anyone who has built a Twisted Hobbys or RC Factory plane before. Medium CA and kicker is recommended. UHU Por can be used if preferred although some people prefer not to use it on the carbon fibre bracing. Please do not use Foam-Safe cyano.
Recommended equipment: -
- 2204 size motor
- 10-15 amp ESC to suit
- 8 inch propeller to suit
- 3 × 6g servos
- 300-450mAh 2s Li-Po battery
