Edge down!!! and sadly to say..... out. Re-order/Re-do. It was a great warrior (bugles sounding) and fought a good fight, but the maker had other ideas

All part of the game. No big shakes. Got into an inverted flat spin about 20seconds after take-off and was going to pull of Joe S (slide the tail to a hover) exit and for some reason dumb thumbed the rudder. Ive never goofed that one but I guess I can say Ive done it now.
It happens. Hey if they lasted forever we would all still be flying the ugly sticks.

So just curious (and jealous!). Why have an EF 60" AND a 57" 3DHS Extra. Probably has something to do with MORE Extras in the Hangar! Not judging, wish I could "double up". Appreciate the comments. I'm excited about getting this one together and airborne.

actually the EF belongs to a friend of mine and we trade off once in a while. We are fortunate enough to have about every awesome flying plane there is between the two of us (and a couple others) and I was just vouching for the both. You will have to experience it for yourself. Wont disappoint

Why not?

long story short, I had always planned to get the 57" extra, but then one day I see EF is have a "not going toledo sale" so I jump on the EF 60" instead, got it and I love it, flys great and so I'm happy, but then at the last 3DHS gargage sale I score the 57" extra for $200 shipped

Personal opinion as I have started the 57" build and can compare construction of the two, the 3dhs is going to be lighter and floater but more delicate, it is just a much lighter plane without all the CF bracing and heavier plywood that the EF has, it is also smaller, which means I will probably like it better as I love light and floaty. We'll see, I'm equipping the 57" with the same motor and servos on my EF so it should be a decent comparison

It's all about the deals! My 48" 3DHS Edge is a bit too floaty so I should really love this Extra.

My wing bolt came out today in a violent tumble maneuver. Anyone need parts? The fuse is toast, everything else is good, I managed to get it down soft and easy, some minor damage to one wing. PM me for details.

Getting ready to order another 48" (#4) probably next week. Been flying my mix and match blue and orange FrankenEdge. It is better than no Edge at all. This plane is too good not to have one flying at all times. New one is going to get completly new electronics. Savox replaced the rudder servo that locked up on me a few weeks ago. Looks like winter is coming fast, time to break out my flying gloves or order one of those transmitter gloves from HK. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ap_Ready_.html

You might want to try a 51" AJ Slick
I have both after crashing my Edge I got a slick, now I don't want to even fix my Edge even though I have everything needed to do it.

Big difference?
I have a ? what does IMAC stand for
