Awesome, I've been looking for something like that, a competitor to the parkzone extra. Hope they are available soon.

Just ordered the edge!Thought I'd better get my hands on at least one before they are out of stock.I will most likely get all three eventually.

I was flying the Edge loads yesterday.....mad as a box of frogs....brilliant fun, 1800mAh 4s really is the only pack for them though, C of G is perfect with that size pack, oh and watch those rates on the maiden!

The set up you see on the vid is 1800mAh 4s up front, C of G is bang on, no need for mods, as I said, rates are really important, that roll rate you see on the V3 is at only 50% aileron movement! Elevator needs to be around 50% also for the maiden,maybe set up a little bit more on dual rates for landing, it is essential that it is trimmed right, get it up high and trim for level flight at around half throttle.....then enjoy!

Thanks for the advice Scott.I'll probably throw in some expo as well to soften the controls around center.

Well the Sbach arrived today.Looks fantastic! Should be a very easy assembly.If it takes me more than an hour I'd be surprised.I'm not in a hurry though.I run Deans connectors,but for these I will keep the xt60 connectors on the esc and batts.But I have to wait till my next one,the Edge gets here as I ordered charging leads for these connectors.Maybe this week if I am lucky.I know it has shipped>

I put the Sbach together.Tell you what,make a pot of coffee,and by the time it's done brewing,you will have it assembled.Super simple.Waiting on my charge leads so I can get those 1800 4s batteries charged.Hopefully this week.I have to say,this is one impressive looking plane!
