Bivens,

That thing is just beautiful! Does the graphics come with it? Vinyl?

Nice job on the maiden. Can't wait to see more on a sunny day.

Mike, great job on getting the Edge done and in the air really fast. You weren't excited were ya. Great video as well.

Mine arrived today. Very sexy plane. Everything looks fantastic! I'll get started on it this weekend.

After looking at both, I don't know which one I like the best...the silver & red really looks sharp, but so does the red one....but considering my money recently went for an 89" Slick, my wife would kill me if I even suggested buying another plane right now, especially, since I have three NIB "kits' sitting there ready to build...

Are the trucks in the case RC?? And if so, do you also have the trailers to go with them?

Some pics of my build, there is a link on the web site to a manual but it doesn't seem to work. So I had to "wing it"(recalculating). But if you have built another 30cc 3DHS plane this one is the same. I still don't have everything locked down, I forgot my 3" rudder arm at home. E setup, 8s, a50-12l. I used the HK orange to test the motor direction. However every flight on my Extra has been with an orange rx. It now has a 6210 in it!

About the hardest thing was locating the cut outs for the control horns. Press, look for a demple, hope that's it. One thing I usually use the manual for is to get an idea of their location. I still haven't cut in the one for the elevator. It was getting late. This is about 4 hours of solid work. I'm sure yall will maiden way before mine with my schedule the next week, so good luck with yours!! Rob

So on to some pics...

sexy. Makes me want to pull mine out of the box and start the build tonight! But I started on the 46" Yak, and I want to finish it first...

Nice pics that scheme is awesome! I need to get some of those landing gear cuffs and see if they fit on the SC.

Those were another head scratcher, in the bag with the gear there were some small phillips screws and 4 black allen machine screws. There are holes in the CF gear to mount from the bottom. machine scres a no go so I used the phillips, little long and one slight poked through. Left the others a little lose. Never saw any other screws.

Wonder how Bevens did his?

CF gear on the SC is shaped a little different, but they look pretty universal if they will fit over the gear. Looks like fiberglass with rubber edges. They nicely hold on the gear cover plate. First time I've ever used that.
