Great plane once you work out the twist. I'm still surprised how such a short tailed plane hovers so well, even in the wind.

Edit: Put my last good flight to some Youtube provided music. Makes me miss it already.

I just might have to do something about it come 1 Sep.

Last flight of the day - 3DHS 40" EPP Edge 540 (6 min 32 sec)

As chopper said, it's gone. I thought I could fix it until I picked it up and everything started falling off or dangling by the EPP. It was like jello. The wings could have been repaired easily, but I didn't have any structure left in the fuse to align it. WOT, in a dive, going with the wind - that's what it takes I guess to retire this baby. It handled everything else surprisingly well.

Well, she went in and broke the firewall. Mine mod to the nose saved my butt again. All that I need is to cut a new firewall

Done. Waiting for the PU to dry before welder'ing the epp skin back on.

This crash sidetracked me as I'd planned to fix my Align 450 Pro and 600 nitro for Sunday flying.

Flew in the wind yesterday and rather impressed with how well it handled. Never would have expected that from an epp.

Not much talk on here lately.

Well, i was able to get one quick flight in yesterday evening to test out my plane after the repairs and fixing my linkages. It handled WAY better and even though i had less throw on my ailerons it stilled rolled faster then it did before. So evidently i was getting too much blowback in flight and not really getting that much throw in the air. So i think that issue is fixed. However....my right wing dip is back and as bad as ever. It took a good 8 clicks to correct the right wing dip at 75% throttle. Just as bad as it was on day one. So my twist and fix didnt hold up. This is really ticking me off. I just want to enjoy this plane.

Sorry man.

This lowing flying crashing thing is getting to be annoying. On the fifth flight of the newly minted firewall, dumb thumbs took her in and cracked the perfectly good wing. Jboy ordered another one. I'm going to wait to see if his is going to have the same wing warp before purchasing another one (or two) just in case.
