So what's the verdict? Is this plane a winner?

Just trying to see if it needs to find it's way onto a Christmas list

It's a BIG winner. Flies unbelievably... Really! Just change the prop to a gwsdd7030, take care while you build the plane and off you are!

Hopefully. I'll call around tomorrow so I can get back up and running. I was loving the plane under proper power. It was floaty when I wanted it to be but a power horse when I wanted it to be as well. I think HH could've done a few simple things to make sure this plane was a 100% success out of the box... The biggest of which is that god awful prop.

I dont know a eflite plane that people didn't change the prop out for something better.and they know we like to mod them so if they got it right out of box we wouldn't have nothing to do but fly em lol

Prop selection is one thing when it comes to specs but when they slap a piece of masking tape on there and call it a prop it's a whole different beast!

What I don't get is is any of the "beta" testers actually fly these things or just look at them and pick there nose at it, if i was a beta tester i would have said guys the props suck lets get a better one, Also guys the esc is barley big enough lets make a 12 amp. the guy who designed the plane suppose to be a great pilot but I sometimes wonder. They are hardly any good beta testers it seems along with the HH team people that fly /test these planes

Here is a 3s

I'm not good enough to be a beta tester, but fly mine is all I've done so far. When the weather cooperates that is. Still has stock prop, stock esc, did change wheels because I fly off grass, but do that to almost everything I ever bought. I'm wound up about it. I have trouble thinking of it as a UM though. Decided quickly that instead of a big little plane, it was a little big plane. Flies much bigger than it is. But this 33F high today with 23-30 mph winds just didn't make it worth even trying and had the whole day to play. I normally take several planes to the field, but since the Edge, only it has went with enough batteries and chargers to fly it almost continuous. Nothing has broken yet. I do have spare 7x3.5 props if it happens, but that is standard practice to have extra props for anything I own.

I do agree with you but I'm guessing it all comes down to costs and the final price point. I guess they know we are going to tinker no matter what so their focus is most likely on market price.

Well i would love to be a beta tester, Thought was going to get to be one once for a comp but guess since i dont go to contests all time they picked someone else. I have been in hobby long time and can pick out flaws with items.

Yeah true but how are they making money off props if were all buying props else were rather then from them? however I used to have my dream job i worked at a hobbyshop and I know for every 10 ppl that walked in maybe 1 out of the ten got on sites like this one to read what others have modded so unless Myself or someone else at the store told them a mod they would just keep buying stock props or whatever it was.

Most of there planes not so bad I always said eflite battery's stink i won't ever buy one I rather have a cheap $2 one then there's.
