Question
Peak Models 30cc gas 3d planes

Hello, I'm thinking about buying one of there edge 540 arf/DLE 35RA combos and wanted to know if they are of good quality? Any helpful information about this would be greatly appreciated. This will be my first 30cc plane. Thanks, Jamie.

I've heard the quality is not the best in the world and the hardware isn't as well. But that being said I always use my own hardware anyways and go over all the glue joints and do a little re enforcing anyways.
Those same people said the same thing about my goldwing MX. It was alot cheaper than all the other planes in her class so I didn't mind the extra work. Now it's much stronger than her comperitors.
I'd probally go for it.

Here's a few pictures of my new Pilot 29% Sbach 342 50cc airplane. I really haven't had any extra time to start building it yet.

Hey, so far, the only things that I have to complain about are the "Thunderbolt" graphics and that the pull pull rudder cables weren't ran, they were just wadded up and zip tied to the inside of the fuselage. Oh and the online build instructions aren't very helpful! But then again, this is my first 50cc airplane.

I thought mine was gonna be difficult, but I had good instructions, and it is coming together nice, it's the 77" edge goldberg. Just waiting on motor now.

Yeah, well, the firewall for mine doesn't fit the front of the fuselage like it should. It's a little to big and the pieces of wood that support the front of the fuselage aren't allowing me to move it back far enough without having to remove some of them!

Well, I was able to make some progress on installing the firewall and the DLE 55 engine. Here's a few pictures.

Hey, this was not to bad for my first time! I like how it turned out. I probably won't have anymore extra time to continue until next weekend.
