On covering it turns dried CA into a gel you can wipe off. It does smear it around a little, but a couple of applications gets it right off.

It softens it up so you can drive a blade in there a lot easier, but you have to work slowly. I am not sure what's in the stuff, so residue might not let the new CA bond.

I think I am going to the local speed shop and see if I can get a pint of nitromethane. Everyone seems to think that's the best solution, so I'll give it a shot.

Yep... I flew the 60 Edge for a few weekends and then went back and forth between the 60 and the 48 and started seeing some real improvement. I did a simple KE spin to inverted flat spin to a high speed 360 KE circle, to a one-and-three-quarter snap to inverted, up to a pop top, then an awkward attempt at a big rolling circle, and was met at the flight line after the flight by the club's head instructor like it was a victory parade down 5th Avenue. Didn't do much, none of it was low, but some are easily impressed. The Edge is a solid skills-developer that you can move on to any airframe from.

My first 3D plane was a 47 inch Extra and I really enjoyed flying it fast and jamming sticks around. But I am learning so much more between the EF 48 and 60 Edge because you can develop the stick movements and spacial awareness with more confidence, IMO.

Tom flew all Extras for a while, then the 48 and 60 EF Edges. He then flew Frank's 78 Extra like it was the 48 Edge, and now moved those developed skills into 50cc Extras and flew the 104 Extra two weekends ago like it was the 60.

Either way, none of these planes fly themselves so eventually, we also have to walk the walk. If you are a novice, like me, it's my opinion that the Edge is where the confidence is developed. On the other hand, some guys stick with the Extra's and keep plowing the field with them, but feel they have an excuse. In air combat, there is an old saying about cheating... "If you ain't cheating, you ain't trying".

I might have to pick up an edge, and use some 5245s on it, so I can get some HV servos for my MXS or Extra. I have an extra V1 troque 4016t/500, which would probably work just fine in an edge.

occasionally they do...i know this past year they had an awesome sale during the toledo event

However they have said already their profit margins are getting slimmer and slimmer all the time due rising labor costs in china. Honestly, sales are nice but the airframes are worth every penny

I think they previously stated that they aren't making very much on airframes as it is so they don't do sales often. The 48'' seem expensive but they are longer than the other companies 48'' airframes. My EF 48 Edge was almost as big as my 51'' Slick. If you go to the 60'' size planes you are saving $30 dollars vs. the competition(whose planes are a little smaller). Overall i feel i get the most "bang for my buck" from my EXPs

Despite them not going on sale, that has not deterred me either. Any way you look at it, EF planes are some of the most competitively priced aircraft in the industry.

Living in Ga, we are also kinda lucky we can avoid the shipping fees by LPU... on some larger models, this in itself can amount to a significant amount of savings.
