Extreme Flight 48 MX-Edge

This was a winter project my dad worked on. I crashed the MXS my first year flying ripped out the mid section where wingtube and wings go in(flew wings into a tree). The edge i crashed at camp AMA when i had radio problems destroyed the fuse but wings weren't to bad. The wings are from the Edge. The fuse and tail surfaces is MXS. Flew it today it flew pretty good little bit windy so couldn't tell how straight it tracks but 3D's awsome. Rollers, tumbles, etc. Let me know what you guys think?

I had the same idea. I'm calling it my Frankenbird project. Very similar but I want a cylindrical fuse (inverza or yak). How well did the wings fit into the fuse?

They aren't interchangeable my dad had to add 3/4 in. of wood to back of wing and taper it to the fuse. Also changed where anti rotation pins went in and also some other stuff.

This is a very interesting combination.

Just talked to him and his dad a bit ago when they were leaving the field.

He says video is coming Doc.
