The Sea Slick!

JR Team Pilot Corey Winter has an interesting creation he built from a crashed 89" Slick. Watch the Sea Slick take flight at the Joe Nall lake.

Avast Me Hearties!

There's plenty of unique aircraft to be seen at Joe Nall. One such creation that we think is more than worthy of a spotlight is JR Team Pilot Corey Winter's 89" Slick that's been converted into a sea plane. The Sea Slick has a DLE 62 mounted in typical sea plane fashion on a pylon above the deck. With it's new thrust line, the Sea Slick can do some pretty epic tumbles and spins.

Corey told me he's still getting the feel for the Sea Slick's interesting flight characteristics, and even though it's got only a few flights on it since making it's maiden voyage at the Nall pond, it looks like Corey is getting quite comfortable with it as he flings it around the pond.

Well done

Oh man! that is too cool. Robust pylon to hold the engine and gas tank and survive like it does. Wow! Really impressive axial rolls, surprising!
Was wanting to put floats on my Yak, but now... thanks for making this
