CG Position & Control Throws:

With control throws, please adjust them as shown in the Diagram One below. These throws are good for the maiden flight. Please make any adjustments accordingly to your own personal flying style.

Now for C.G., the ideal maiden flight C.G. position is 139.70mm (5.50 in) behind the leading edge (Refer to Diagram One below). This is measured back from the leading edge at the wing root (where the wing meets the fuse). Please adjust accordingly to your own personal flying style and set-up.

Diagram One:


Introducing our brand NEW 2016 78" Slick 540 Typhoon! This beautiful 28% scale Slick 540 is a brand NEW model size /class added to our Gas Engine lineup for 2016. This Slick 540 is our modified version of last years 60cc Slick 540 Banshee with some improvements for extreme 3D performance. The 28% Slick 540 is designed to conquer the most difficult 3D maneuvers while keeping all of the great flight character that is expected of a Slick 540. This model is very light and floaty as the slick has been in the past, but we have improved strength with the new Carbon fiber reinforced frame. This all adds to the Slick 540s capabilities and corresponds extremely well under the pilot's input.

The all NEW exclusive custom design is one of a kind and puts the 78" Slick 540 Typhoon on a whole new level compared to past schemes. With our standard Oracover skin on all of our new gen models, this model scheme and style has also become our standard. Extreme looks, that compliment how it performs! The aggressive look is similar to the larger model Banshee but unique at the same time with an eye catching high contrast Orange and Blue color scheme! Performance is unmatched in its class that ranges from 35CC - 50CC. With a DA 50cc engine this plane will fly like a beast.
