I had a blast today with my Slow Stick. I own a Zagi and a Sky Scooter, but today I flew two 1700mAh batteries out on my Slow Stick. I actually use my Zagi batteries, one can fly forever with them on a Slow Stick. It will still loop and I did about 20 touch and go landings. Sorry, just had to write to tell anyone out there wondering what to buy for a first plane that the Slow Stick is a lot of fun and very easy to fly.

this is a great plane to get. Its my first plane, and it flies much better than a Firebird Challenger in my opinion. Much more control, and it can glide forever. Hope you have fun with it.

T-hawk was my first (very tough plane). Slow Stick will be here next week. Can't wait. The surgeon general should issue a warning about this hobby......It's addictive.

ok i know every trick in the book for the slow stick, for one you need to reinforce the rudder with some depron foam which you can get from a take out food box and for the wing you need lots of foam safe ca or "zap-O" ca and some activator and so rather than using tape to hold the wing together and upright pour the glue into the middle of the wing and then spray activator and it holds it wonderfully and for the firberglass spars at the front and back of the wing you must put down more of the ca and put the spar on it and then you must spray activator while holding it in place. and for the rudder and elavator and rudder you must also never tighten down the plastic peice with the screws because it creats a preseurse point and later becomes a serious break point and also for the batteries on this plane you must use kokam 3 cell lithium battery with the pixie 20p esc so you never run the battery to low and ruin them and one last thing is that you never give it full throttle or you will ruin the motor. well thats my 2 cents on the plane and i must say it is the greatest thing that ever happend to me! and another great plane they make would be the tiger moth 3d and tigermoth "big" 400

That's a lotta "musts"
