I think while your in the rebuild process you could use the edge's brother ( 42" slicks) gear. you'd need to put a different type of landing gear block.
For me the whole purpose of the edge is that wire landing gear. It's much more durable for learning harrier landings an such
. Otherwise t as it's the 42" slick is a much nice flyer. Jsut not as pretty and durable than it's brother the little edge

The only "problem" with the wire gear, is that it would have been best if designed to be replaceable. A lot of people of course follow the instructions and epoxy it in, then if they need to replace it, there is difficulty doing so...not impossible, just difficult.

So I'm pretty sure my Buck Huck has 9 lives. It has had one of the wings come loose and crashed at near full throttle(that happened twice), as well as a handful of dead-sticks thanks to forgetting my timer or bad batteries. Just yesterday I can now add landing a plane without an elevator to my list of accomplishments, lol. I was doing some low rollers when I noticed it and immediately went into KE to climb out. Luckily for me the servo was seized and locked with what felt like a few clicks of up trim. After a few seconds rolling and knife edging around trying to get a feel for it, I got it lined up with the runway about 200ft up and managed to slip it all the way in. The nose started to drop right at the end so it ended up nosing in and killing the wood prop and scraping the cowl a little, but other than that, she survived!!! I seriously can't believe the amount of abuse this thing has taken. Granted it's seen it's share of repairs and takes some effort to fly a straight line now, but it's still an awesome little hucking machine!

I just recently added some vortex generators to the wings and also put on the EF SFG's I had from my recently downed 48" EF Edge. Although they're a little over sized, they definitely make the plane track better and add a lot more stability in KE. I know it helped a lot with that emergency landing. And pop tops look really nice :-)

Heh I had a wing come loose too. Doesn't fly real well with the wing perpendicular to the direction it's supposed to be. I didn't go in full throttle but did drop from a pretty decent distance because of this. Only had a couple of pieces in the motor box broken, I thought for sure it was going to be totaled.

I was working slow but sure on the Edge and then the electronics for my 48" Extra showed up so the Edge is sidelined until the Extra is done. Gotta get the new bird in the air.

However, on Saturday the new motor box for my Edge showed up with on minor problem. The problem; Old Lady could not get it out of our mailbox. As I went to go rescue it I thought; what is wrong with her, why can't she get it out? Then I saw the box; was just large enough to fit in the back but it would not come out the front. But my handy dandy Leatherman came to the rescue.

Spektrum guy here. What Rx(s) are other Spektrum users using? Thinking what I have is overkill, so wondering what works well in a model this size?

Guys during a prop change I twisted off the prop shaft on my omega 72.
Any suggestions. I don't know if any parts are available for this motor.

AR 6115e, "park flyer" sized RXs for 3D planes. Don't see any reason to go to a full size for this type of plane. My gliders have full range RXs.

It looks like I'm not the only one with a heavy hand. LOL
I'm so glad I didn't sell my Hacker A30-28.

I just switched over to Spektrum from Futaba, so I haven't gotten a rx for my Edge yet. I have a four channel full range that I could run a y harness for the ailerons, but I haven't decided if I want to do that, or just another rx and use the 4channed for something else (I guess I'll have to buy another 4ch. plane ).

I flew my buck huck for a long time with just a simple Hobby King OrangeRX 6-channel receiver with zero issues. I decided to upgrade my to a DSMX reciever and use the orangeRX in a foamy I was building. I use OrangeRX in all my foamys and I'm now using the Spektrum AR6115 in my two 3DHS planes.
