That's awesome Mike...no doubt it feels good to have a day like that!!! I am off this coming Friday and Monday so I am going to do a lot of flying I hope. The Slick is coming out Saturday for sure. Might even get the boat out on the big lake and do some fishing too.....been a crappy summer for Lake Michigan with all the crazy North and North east winds this year

DOG I'm using an APC 12/6E. I've checked Battery,ESC and motor temps. They are barely getting warm.

Tom you got any pictures of that superfly.
Mike , Tom Thank you for every thing.

I use the same prop on the 4S setup on my edge Kerwin...works perfect. You are welcome, hope you enjoy the plane!

As far as the superfly, this is it....

http://www.superflyrc.com/

I use 3s 800mah batts and the performance is awesome and i get 8 minutes easy. The plane is really pretty indestructible and can be fixed in minutes with hot glue or Welders. It is really fun for those crappy days when you don't want to fly anything else or just throw it up and have fun.

I had that happen on the Etwist, I switched to a Wood prop and the problem went away... It was weird, timing didnt fix it either.

Trying setting up an idle before you take off. I bump he trim until it is idling than go fly. After I land, I take the trim out. That greatly improves response from the esc and it is recommended by the EF folks with the torque motors and air boss ESC's.

Guys I managed to get out tonight for a quick flight with my little Edge. I'm really starting to learn her, and managed to harrier her.
I didn't get out till right at sundown and boy a couple of times I thought I was going to lose her. At dusk the light can play funny tricks on a man.
I did my 1st harrier landing with her tonight also and I can't wait to do it again tomorrow,Though I do got to work in the morning and head to kansas city in the afternoon.
I have got some more done on my twist and I hope to have her ready by the weekend.

O no DOG whats up. Our club is split right now as we had a hostile take over and one guy was telling the city consel and news paper he's the president of the club.
Boy the news paper really gave us a bad rap, fly boys against soccer kids.
It made front page news.

Long time Tresurer thinks he can run the club from that seat, has for many years, I am the longest term president of 3 going to 4 years and he is showing his colors, I gave him the rope to hang himself.

Dude doesnt even fly, he crashes first flight maybe once every three years.

Kerwin,
That is just nuts...can't believe the whole thing has spiraled out of control like this. Good luck and hang in there!
