I am just wondering, do you also have the 47"? I would have bought a 48" but did not because of the site landing gear.

Cale if you are flying off grass I would not get the 48" just because of the wire LG and get the 47", but that's just me. Also another think to look at is replacment parts, I know the ADC website has replacment fuses for the edge but I don't think they have them for the SHP, but I would have to check on that, they may even get the SHP fuses in the future though if they don't already have them. So that is another thing to look at because you will crash.

Would you call that "flying" WOT or full speed 3D? KE Spin and/or Blender is more like the plane kicking it's own ass while rotating at wide open throttle

And the 48 EPP Extra does both of those things absolutely great, by the way.

I have 3" dubro's on my shp, with 3" wheels on the edge you will most likely be fine in the grass.

Well the last I heard last year was that spare fuses would not be sold anymore. Maybe that changed but I dont see them on 3dhs page.

spare fuses will be available with upcoming batches with the exception of giant scale... and those times that the freight company hoses something and has a fuselage become available (like what happened with a couple of 104's recently)...

Where can I get some good battery straps for 6s 5000 batteries? I want some like the spot on straps but 16 inches is too long I'm guessing.

If your servos are rated for 6v, then go for it!

No I only have an Edge but I have flown the extra and it does fly really good, probably a little more precise and doesn't seem to have quite the elevator but has more rudder authority. And i love the wire gear, the 48 is my absolute thrash plane, I do elevators all the way to the ground and just bend the gear back. Love them, I wish that the 47 had wire gear, if it did I would get one.
