I hate to interrupt the servo war with something off topic like airplanes, but I am going to get a backlog of video if I don't clear out the stuff we shot yesterday. As you can well imagine, things just got very complicated for me, in a good way of course.

Ha! Your hover already looks better than mine!

Just keep doing what you are doing and it will all come to you. Fly anything you can get your hands on including foamys and simulators. It's all about stick time.

I've got a few more videos to post, but let' give everyone a chance to comment on Eagle2Nitro's excellent work first.

Thanks. I think the reason I can hover the Edge pretty well is because I learned hovering on 16"-18" wingspan UMXs. There are some videos on my YT channel of me trying to hover a massively tail-heavy UMX Pitts.

Thanks. I need to work on 3-point landings too. I have been only harrier landing for a while, which I actually find easier.

Hmm. I'll try that.

I was all ready to go fly, then it started raining.

Doc and Eagle,

As always fantastic video and Eagle your skills are excellent.

Not meaning to rekindle the servo debate but just for the record I've been running Savox sh 255mg with zero issues. Response has been great and I like the way the plane flies. The only thing I would say is if your pushing the plane replace them every six months.

That being said Hitec are a quality mob and I'm looking forward to test driving their 5070 servos.

Just my two cents worth.

All the Best

Danny
