If so then I'd rather go gas. But I think that it would be fine....

I hope you got the Yellow/Blue scheme-cuz that flies better

Where would you fly it as a gas setup? If you have a place you can fly it often I'd go gas. It's easier to get more flying done in a day that way.

I'm not a member of any club...yet. I think if I could go electric and fly at the NMEF field I would get much mote time with it than a gas setup. Just because I can ride my bike over whenever I feel like it - whereas with gas it would be a MAYBE...MAYBE once a month thing. Dad would have to drive me over to the one by the Apple farm (its the closest) and then if I would want to stay all day he would have to make two trips...and I'm not sure he would be so happy about that. I will have to talk with him and see what he says...
The nice thing was was that I could just fly whenever I wanted during summer vacation.
Hmmm........I really don't know.
They have flown some really big gliders, and the Sig 4 star 120, but then again, he has a lot of respect and trust going for him.....
Huh.

Wow you can go down to the field and fly all day long?! That's awesome! I'm limited to 30-50 minutes at the most

Maybe I'll have to join a club this summer. Heck if I can go out flying for the day that would be awesome...

Honestly then I'd stick with something electric and for the parkflyer field.

I get nervous when half those guys fly those bigger planes over there. It's not the size of the field cause I know these planes will drop in on a dime. It's the pilots flying them!

I still say you should get the edge! The extra is nice but I think the Edge will be more exciting in the maneuvers you like to do!

Thanks-good to know. Looks like its down to either a DA35 or a Motrolfly on 8S to fly at the apple farm field. Its not that bad-only a 15 minute drive or so. 8S so I can share the batteries with my (current) Beaver that takes 4S 4000-5000 or the 57 Extra I'd like to get afterwards
Would the Edge be good for freestyle Imac and stuff like that? I'd like to find a few competitions around southern MN to do a few routines at to get the experience like you suggested.
Been meaning to ask you-where are the competitions? What clubs? I'd like to know so I can stay posted on their websites to wait for dates that I'd image will be published this spring.
Thanks,
Alex

Well if your wanting to do IMAC then yes the Extra will be a great setup. I'm running the Mortofly on 8S in mine as well.

Can't tell ya on the competitions around here as I have not seen any but I have not been looking that hard. If I hear of anything I'll let you know.

Honestly I'm not a big fan of the field by the apple farm. I love my field at SMMAC. It's a farther drive but well worth it for a day of flying. I'll have to drag you out there sometime this year.

I think that's with ignition and muffler.. I actually think the motor itself comes in a tad lighter... The DA doesn't come with a muffler and the weight is motor only.

I think this is what it is anyways.. i may be wrong
