Timelapse! Kevin Turner's 3DHS 89" AJ Slick
By: Matt Gunn on 12-18-14
Ah yes, the time-lapse build video! Who doesn't love watching days of installation and setup condensed into a 4-minute hyper build? Flying Giants member Kevin Turner (kevinjulieevan) sent us this delightful video of him and his young helper assembling a 3DHS 89" AJ Slick. The plane was won in a raffle by his son at XFC last year, and Kevin decided to take us all along for the ride as he put this beast together. Sit back, relax, and watch this Slick take shape. Thanks, Kevin! 89slicktimelapse on Vimeo The 3DHS 89" AJ Slick Specs: Winspan: 89" Length: 91" Wing Area: 1500 Sq. Inches Weight 17-19 lbs. Designed by Andrew Jesky, the 89" Slick has been update with a number of new features including a composite-reinforced landing gear mount, a tuned-pipe tunnel, and updated color schemes. The AJ Slick is one of the largest 50cc 3D aircraft available and can be powered with a DLE-55, DA-50, or DA-60. The electric option should be powered with a Hacker Q80-8M motor.
