The 71" Slick can be set up for the DLE-30 engine, and includes a firewall-drilling template for that engine and uses the standoffs included with the latest version of the DLE-30 engine. If you are not using a DLE-30, you will have to supply the correct length standoffs and drill your firewall accordingly for your particular engine.
We recommend the DLE-30 Rear-Carb engine for this aircraft, with a 20x6 (or Vess 19A or 20A) prop.
For electric setup, we recommend the Hacker A60-6XS on 6S 5000 mAh batteries swinging a 20 x 10 prop. The Hacker A60-6XS will require stand-offs to mount the motor.
Wing Area: 1012 Sq. Inches
Weight: 9.5-10.5 lbs.
Firewall to front of cowl: 6 5/16" or 160mm.
