I get 7 minute flights on a 60" extra with 3300 mah 6s batteries and a 15x6 prop. Start up propping (up to a 16x8 with the new torque), and your time may change. I get 5 minute flights on my 48" MXS with 2200 mah 4s swinging 12x6.

Sorry to hear about that... I had many many good flights with the MXS and wish I still had one. Maybe a green 60 should be in my plans.

You will love the Edge, can't go wrong with it. I can sort of relate to your feelings on the 48" MXS, it took me a long time to figure out the right setup for mine and to just fly it enough to really like it. Now that I have it just right and have flown it enough to get accustomed to it I love it almost as much as my 60" Edge. The Edge on the other hand was very easy to get comfortable with and has done more to improve my skills than any other plane, and it's still my favorite.

Have you thought of setting the elevator to 45degrees on high rate?


I'm at the opposite end. The edge has taken me forever to figure out, but the mxs I'm golden on.
