That looks a little overpowered, if there was ever such a thing in a RC aircraft .

My little Edge only has 220W and has no problems with most maneuvers, though it could use a little more speed. Some of the gusts must have been a bit strong this afternoon, at WOT it was only just going forward .

I only flew for 5mins on each battery as I didn't want to miss the calm time for landing.

Overpowered no way.
Not sure how much of that power is lost to heat , as Iam running a Park 480 on 12*6E on it. Still it has plenty of power. Yeah watching the timer is critical that's how i destroyed my landing gear on this one , hit LVC and belly-flopped it

Yep. It went to half I backed off and it then proceeded to normal.

Love it! I really like the red scheme. From those who ordered from ADC in the past, what was the shipping time for your kits?

Oh and I feel your pain with the wind, it's not looking good for at least a week. ~30 knots all sodding weekend according to seabreeze but I take forecasts from that site with a grain of salt. I'm looking forward to the stinking hot, long, calm summer evenings of past summers. Shame about the lack of daylight savings but we won't get on to that :P
