Actually, the prototype I have has aluminum gear. The kit will have CF like the ones on the blue and silver plane. I will get updates for mine when they arrive

Avery, the 60" Edge will be even more stable and precise in all aspects because of it's larger size. There will be a notable difference between the 48" and 60" versions. The 48 is amazing and the 60 will be even better!
SWEET can't wait!!!

Using 4s-3800 / 4000, it seems to be a bit hard on BAT & ESC to get to the 1200-1400w level.
6s-3000 (or 5s - ...) seems to be easier.
Just a thought

You're right, but I've been running high voltage to get higher power output instead of pushing the current on my planes. Everyone knows P = VI.

Just wanted to check since I'd get some more batt this weekend.

I've been running a Reaper GR60/RB85 in a EF 58" Extra on 4s 4000, and getting right at 1200watts. Pulls the snot outta that plane, and it's pushing 6lbs. Motor/esc/batts come down slightly warm.

I've got the same setup (and results with a 55" SHP). Love that combo.

I am thinking of 6s-2500 (25-30c). Should be light and strong.
I have a 480 kv motor (292g) spinning 15x8 on 6s generate about 165 oz of thrust.

Now just waiting for it to be released.
