Oh sorry to hear about your Edge. Out of curiosity, what made you switch to EF? I guess you can only get an objective opinion in a GWS forum (vs. the 3DHS or EF ones) .

Yes, the Edge is much easier to fly. Much more precise, much more predictable. Granted I do have better components in it (hitec servos vs. no-name ones).
It lands so slow, and graceful i literately fly it to my feet. On the other hand, it can take a beating in the air and I guess that comes with the balsa territory. Tumbling the Mosa I thought it would break in half... I think there is that much beating these foam frames can take. The first few flights are awesome but then they never feel as accurate as they used to be. Some maneuvers do put tremendous amount of force and stress on the frames.

There is also a thing to be said about using a recommended setup. Not having to guess the motor mount, not having to fabricate one. Not having to choose a motor and go through 5 different prop sizes until you find the right one for the Plane. Not having to dream up where and how all the components are going to fit inside, etc'.

The current Mosa that I have is a rocket and sometimes I may crave that. I have not written it off yet. I would like to think that I am on a break...
I am not good enough to do a rolling circle just yet, but I am up for the challenge!
