Actually, I really like my 48" Edge on windy days...I flew it one day when it was so windy that I couldn't taxi it. Every time I gave it any throttle, it would lift off of the ground. It's inexpensive enough that I don't worry about it too much...and it's just plain fun in the wind...

I maidened my 58" Edge yesterday, and it seems it can get very violent, but my 74" does too....My 71" Slick seems to "lumber" more than my 74" Edge does, but I think it is the difference in servos. I have HS-7955TGs in my Edge, and HS-985MGs in my Slick....I need to change them out...

Ever since I got my 87" SHP I've been treating my 47" SHP like a foamie. I'm not sure how it's still alive, but it's only a matter of time.

I flew the new motor a couple of times and a guy at the field got it so that it will not die at the field, so I know it is just a matter of breaking it in at the field and getting gallons through it, but I decided to buy the OSGT33 and put it on there. I just put that motor for sale(now that I know it just needed to be tuned by somebody that has experience. I have a Extra Carb,Muffler,Ignition, Bowman Rings, & the Jig to use for a prop guide. I just decided to go with the OS because of how many good things I have heard about it. but I have been flying my 74 EDGE everyday.

I thought my 47" SHP was a goner on Saturday, but I only smacked the tail wheel and rudder. I guess at least when it finally dies, I can get a V4 47" SHP to replace it. It's almost 3 years old now.
