Yes they do!! So does the 71".... I loved the look of my red bull one, but I was having a hard time seeing it in some attitudes. The orange 71" is much easier for me to see...

congratulations steve, with my electric setup motrolfly 5320 on 8s, I ended up using a 2s lipo battery for the rx, and was able to get it to balance from 4.5-5.5 without the 2nd battery i was left with a forward cog of 5 3/8. have fun

better check that weather, might be to hot...or to cold...or to windy.

Actually today looks nice, 10mph wind not a problem. Really like that yellow velox.

Well....left the house, with the weather station at our field saying zero-zero....(zero wind, zero gusts), got to the field, and it was getting windy with a 45 degree wind off my left shoulder... Flew my 57" Extra first as a warm up, and by the time I landed it was blowing much harder, but was bound and determined to maiden the Edge......so I did!! (@ RobJ.... ).....one word....NICE!!!!!! Didn't fly it long as the wind was still picking up, but CG was pretty much perfect with the packs against the firewall, just slight drop on the nose inverted, took one click of up trim, one left aileron, and flew great!!

And report on the Hacker A60-5S.... Outstanding from what I can see!! as noted yesterday....2335 watts (Which Kyle at Aero-Model says is actually low, and so could be pushed much harder as the motor is rated for 3000 watts peak), at 79.35 amps, using a Xoar 20X10 carbon fiber "wide" gas prop....didn't get a chance to try a hover, but it had schnitt loads of power on take off and up-lines, so, I think it will be perfect for my style of flying!!

Didn't maiden the Velox.....thought I'd save that for next time, as I want to set the ESC up first....which as noted I need to do on the Edge...

Was being polite, but was referring to the plane having a sh** load of power....
