The Sbach had been my most used plane since the first version came out, but afraid it's lost its place now. Edit: just to add - there is really no comparing the way the two fly - they are completely different breeds of animal. The edge does not fly like a um plane. It flies much more like bigger balsa planes. It's light on the wings and will float around compared to the sbach and will even glide. The sbach stalls like a brick if you get it too slow, the Edge stalls like a feather if you get it too slow.
Thanks for your answer.
I thought something like this. I do understand, just from videos, that they are very different planes. I was just wondering because I've ordered the Sbach and I was wondering if it will be worth upgrading to the Edge. The Sbach will be my first aerobatic plane which is why I was asking about how easy they are to fly :-)
