LOL. Thanks!

I am looking forward. I will most likely start it on 3S as well. I know it is not a pylon racer, but I have heard a few describing it as a rocket (on 4S). I love my Edge, but it did fly slower than my Mosa II with the power 15 which I miss sometimes, and still fly sometimes to satisfy that craving for speed. So I am excited to have both...
The problem of which Plane to fly today is a good problem to have...
I can see myself starting the day with the SV and finishing with the Edge...

If you like speed and precision and 3D then the 3DHS 57" SC should absolutely be on your radar. Put a Motrofly 4315-714 on there and you'll be in heaven.

It is on the radar! Right after the 51" Slick (tough I am tempted to jump straight to the 59"). But I think the next one has to be a Slick... I just got to see what all the rage is about. The good thing with the 51" is that is shares the batts with the SV...

The fuse looking over the wingtip will give vertical reference on the horizon. Similar to doing real Acro. You don't look over the nose to check your up line, you look out either or both wingtips to chk vertical (or you use a sighting guide- the devices attached to the tips with the 45 and 90 degree lines.
For proper orientation with a camera in the cockpit, you need a pan mount, and a head motion tracker. Then it is just like flying a full size aircraft.

Here is one
, there are many made by different companies, just Google Head motion tracking, FPV.

Yes, that would be easier than doing separate clips of all the vantage points then editing them together (current plan). I'll look into it and see how deep I want to get into this. Thanks

also i added sfgs to my buck 50. i can really tell a difference in KE flight. next i wanna try vortex gens. Got advice to use 3m double sided tape instead of Welders to secure them to the plane. When i started looking a 3M double sided tape, i found a plethora of styles and makes. Do you guys have any recommendations as to what kind of tape to get? i saw some for automotive applications but it was pretty pricey.

Seems like 2" with no trimming. 2 1/4 with some trimming but let me know if you can find them anywhere, I couldn't. I tried 2 1/2 but they are just too big for the stock pants. There's always skis!

his wheels came highly recommended to me. gonna order some 2.25 i guess. was wanting to go bigger but these are supposed to be alot softer. easier onthe electronics and airframe, due to less shock. supposed to be better than dubros and way better than stock. ive already broken a stocker.

i may have to break out the skis soon. by the looks of the weather. course as much rain as weve had i prolly could use skis or even floats. hehe

where do you have to do the trimming at. looks like i could pull my pants up on the lg just a fuzz. i would have to trim on the opening on the bottom to make it work. idk tho just a thought.

soo... maiden with 920kv sunnysky and vess 13x6...what can i say....everything is trainer-like, only rolling seems...forced? its a big, chrunchy foamy!its even more harrier stable than my 60" edge, but with that stability comes downside, everything rolling 'looks' forced... i crunched my aeleron tip... thats what you get when you let plane slide down to 1' while doing inverted harrier...

I checked the DB wheels. How wide are they? May have trouble fitting in width wise since these pants are designed for the sport thin tires. I think the DB s are wider.
