Visibility is a lot better. When flying at dusk it is a heck of a lot easier to see. Also, I think the red looks very good in the sky. I have some pictures of it that I will post here in a few minutes.

Maidened the Edge today...100% awesome! As expected, snaps aren't so great, but everything else is so easy.

Looks great Greg!! And yes, nice prop....and love the wing tips!!

From the looks of the land around your flying field, looks like a big ant hill would be a good size hill around there.....kind of like parts of Kansas!!

Thanks guys. Right now we're just flying gorilla style in an unfinished subdivision. We got sick of the club politics and attitudes....and this place has a "runway" that aligns with the prevailling winds and has the sun to our backs.

Only downside is the people walking their dogs and parking on our "runway" to watch us.

I maidened something else today too. Guy on the thread a few days ago was commenting on how he was amazed that it could 3D and that it was a testament to the designers. Um...no. It has a few trimming (thrust?) issues and flys nothing like the 3D machines that I'm used to. It can maybe hover...maybe, but that's about all.

The Edge on the other hand was hovering, harriering, and torque rolling (as down on the deck as I get ) on it's maiden flight. These guys have obviously never flown a quality 3D airframe. 3DHS for the win!

Got a few pictures of my 74" Edge and my 89" Slick last weekend. They show off the red wings nicely.

Nice pics Pink. Is that out by boulder reservoir? If so my dad used to fly out there in the late 80's I remember it was a nice place. Also here is a cell shot of my edge from tonight I like it more and more each time I fly it.

It is Union reservoir in Longmont.


I covered the stabs and the turtle deck as well as putting a red stripe up to the cowling. It blends it together a lot better.

jhorton, it really does help with visibility.
