Thank you mate for the encouragement to me. But I got bad news here......I totalled it today!!!

It was an inverted high speed ditching due to elevator servo died and this superb plane demanded me to fly at no mistake high most of the time.

The damage including motor box, cowling, wing slots, battery tray ( technically the whole fuse ). Other than that all survive and look as good as new.


Feda in reading...you've nailed it with this evolutionary 3d EPP plane that tracks so nicely yet snap so voilently. I hope that you would get us spare fuse with cowling for order because It's a real pain for me to get over the lost of whom I madly in love with

So sorry for your crash, I was looking foward to more flying video from you.

was that a TGY 9018 servo?

I will definitely urge Feda to stock some spare parts when I see him.

Yes. I got both TGY 9018 in rudder & elevator. It's a suddden death without sign but the other one on the rudder still looks ok. As for HK 929MG, they're much reliable to me with only down side of servo play after awhile.

Really hope to see the spare fuse & cowling comming. Thanks!

Sorry for your loss, Gary.

You were flying it so well too. You'll be back on the horse in no time, I bet

I've been trying to learn some of this stuff on my SBach, and you guys make it look so easy. It's a darn lot harder to do than it looks, though. Plenty of practice required here, me thinks

Probably do some SIM work to try and get a few moves together.

O/T... Kris - yah, long time no see/hear. Whatchya bin upta? PM me to catch up, if you like. Plenty of flying here, but it's never enough is it? LoL Haven't heard anything from Bud since around Xmas 2011 - we're all a bit worried down here.

I may be the first to tossed it in less than 30 flights but i really enjoyed every single flight with it.

This new edge 540 SEPP is an advance 3d machine that flies on rail and rolls like balsies, high speed snap roll is what i like to do most with it. It'll instantly lock into position after a voilent snap roll and move forward like nothing happened.....you know what i mean

Keep comming up with your comments on this plane, I believe there's so much potential in it that yet to be explored.

I think a collection is in order!


Oh, and if it flies as good as it looks (it's a great looking machine) - I'm getting another. I'm quite impressed at the way this thing is constructed.
