Bolts right on. Just looks different.

I would think the Extra gear would be stronger because of the shape. I have broken a few sets of gear on a different model and each time it broke at the sharp bend, like on the Edge.

Hey Guys,

I can vouch that of the landing gears there is no question, the extra landing gear is the toughest. It's what I run on my MXS and when I get another edge it's what I'll put on mine.

I fly from very rough field and my extra landing gear has taken hits the other landing gear wouldn't survive.

I hope this helps

Danny

I believed that to be true as well. That's one reason why I'm waiting for the 60" Extra to come back in stock. I like the shape of the gear from a strength perspective.

September 17th marked four years since my first EXP video with the Edge 540T EXP. If you compare to my recent videos, I think you'll agree these planes have really helped me become a better pilot.

How practical is running two 3s 4000mah in series?
Would stock motor and 15x8 give 7+ min and good
compromise for 3d and precision flying.

I get 7:10 on my 48" edge with 4s 2650 and 12x6.
Batteries are around 3.75V/cell at end of flight.

I'm also having a hard time deciding between the 60 edge/extra?

My name is Barry and I built a new Extreme Flight, Edge 48 with the help of Doc Austin. He advised me to build a Landing Gear Bracket (LGB) made from G10 material to strengthen the frame of my new plane. I hired a machinist and purchased a sheet of G10 material that is 1.6 mm thick. We used Lexan plastic to prototype the part and then made the final brackets with G10. These parts are precision made on a computer driven mill using CAD (Computer Aided Design). The brackets fit perfectly onto the backside of the balsa cross-member in the frame behind the landing gear.
I have very limited quantities at this time (6), but we can make more if there is enough demand for them. The cost is $10 for each bracket, plus shipping costs through the mail (approx $4.00 includes tracking info). Contact me for more info if interested! Safe Flying
Waaaaay overpriced.

Thank you so much for this service. I wish it existed before I repaired mine with puzzled-in basswood.
