3DHS 41" Edge "99 Buck Huck"
So... The other thread was closed, so here we go again.... I'll transfer the pics tomorrow. COPIED FROM THE OTHER THREAD:
3DHS has done it again!
At the Toledo show this weekend, Ben Fisher from 3DHS unveiled his newest creation. A 41" Edge, based on the widely popular 40" Edge. Scott Stoops, and Ben revised the design with a larger wing, and new looks. It comes with Wire LG(instead of CF) wheel pants, a very cool new cowl, and canopy. It's designed to run the affordable Omega 72g Motor, and Hitec HS45HB servo's.
The new Edge is Dubed the "$99 Buck Huck"! Wow that's allot of plane for $99.00. I have to hand it to Ben. In these economic times, company's need to adapt, and adapt Ben has. I know Ill be hucking the new Edge.
Ben Fisher from 3DHS says:
"The new 41" Edge is actually a good deal *more* 3D capable than even the current 40" Edge. We'll be posting video soon. Scott did a great job on the revamp, it's really, really good aerobatically...and it's a very fun little racer. No reason you can't have both. For $99."
Pictures were taken by "HeritageFlyer" and "theKM"
The 41" Edge will be available soon! Make sure to get your orders in because there not going to last long.
Here's the link to the first 41" edge, build video. you will find the rest on the same page.
After spending some time with the 41" edge, I found it can also handle a bit heavier setup that allows a more durable plane with longer flight times(8minutes!)
I tend to slap the rudder, and elevator on the ground allot with these little birds, so I used two HS65MG's for the rudder, and elevator..I went with two HS65HB's in the wings (to save a hair of weight), and Dubro(#934) Micro servo arm XL, all the way around.. The Dubro arms are strong enough that they flex during a crash, or hard tail slap, but strong enough to get the job done..I was able to get some serious throw, and with a 50deg elevator this thing is a hoot!!!! I even cart wheeled it when I caught the wing tip on a low KE!!! With no damage!!!!
I did use the 72g Omega, with a Hacker 40Pro ESC.. I also decided to go with the same Hyperion 2200mah 35c packs that I use in the 42" slick.. Some may think this setup is to heavy, But I save weight in other places by excluding washers, cutting down bolts and removing all wire connectors,Plastic covers, and extra wire.. Running a 12x6E prop I'm pulling 400W at 37amp at full burst!
I know from experience that the little omega can handle it with the proper cooling...I'm sold!! I think I'll get a back up....
Got to love the 99$ Huck!!!!!!!!!

I'm just about to finish mine. It'll be on the heavy side with a Park 480, 65HB's and 2200 batteries, but I'm trying to keep it light by running without wheel pants, and no spinner, so we'll see. Really enjoying the build, it's built like a lightweight tank.

Here are a couple pic's of my edges. The 1st is a harrier landing with mt old one and the 2nd is a pic of what a cold lipo can do and the 3rd is my new huckster.
I went tonight just before sundown and really put her through her paces.
What I don't understand is the omega seems to have more power than the hacker but in a KE spin I no longer get the buzz like I did with my old huckster.
She is such a nice flyer I only wish I had pic's of this ole circle flyer trying to 3D.
She was flat spinning both inverted and upright, knife edgeing, stall turning and of course Ke spinning but I got to work on that.
Now if only I can get my crashed one up and flying so it can bve my beater plane while my new one can be my sunday go to meeting plane
Fly low my friends fly low
