70" Slick 580 EXP V2
Using design and construction technology from the 120cc Slick 580 EXP, the V2 70" features a new generation of light, strong EXP construction. We've radically expanded the use of composites, drawing on our experience from 120c, which has allowed us to create a highly styled appearance along with very light weight.
For gasoline power, we recommend the DA-35 or GP38 engine, and we have pre-marked the firewall for these engines. For other engines in the size the firewall also has "crosshair" markings to align these various templates. If installing the DA-35, the standoffs included with the engine are the correct length. A 14 or 17oz. Extreme Flight Flowmaster fuel tank is recommended.
For electric power, we recommend the XPWR 32CC brushless outrunner motor paired an 80-120 amp HV ESC, providing approximately 3000-3200 watts. Our choice is the Castle Creations Edge 80 HV so the 70" Slick 580 airframe is equipped with a custom mounting location specifically for the Edge controllers. With the XPWR 32cc, we recommend 12S 3000-3700mah lipo batteries with a 20x8 or 20x10 electric prop.
Use the Extreme Flight BlazingStar STANDARD EXTRA-LONG adjustable standoff kit to perfectly mount the XPWR 32cc motor into this airframe or anywhere sized for a DA-35 installation. The firewall of the V2 70" Slick 580 EXP is also pre-marked for the XPWR 32cc bolt pattern to add convenience.
The V2 Slick 580 EXP requires 4 full-size metal-gear servos, 300 oz-inches or more recommended. If using gas power, add an additional servo for throttle control, which does not need to be high torque, although high speed is beneficial.
The spinner size is 3.5 inches diameter. Note that the XPWR 32cc requires a perimeter-bolt style spinner or a center-bolt adaptor.
The V2 70" Slick 580 borrows tech from the 120CC Slick, and has been further targeted to maximize 3D stability. This is a rock-solid low-and-slow 3D platform that could easily be a 3D trainer, while retaining the abilities of its competition-winning big brother. It has very low coupling, no rock, and excellent manners, while snapping and spinning precisely and sharply.
