Seems to be discussion here about whether to go with the new Sbach or the Edge. I don't see them as comparing apples to apples. I love the Sbach, and it is probably my most flown plane, because I can fly it almost anywhere from my yard to the club field, but I don't see the Edge being that type of plane. For me at my skill level, it looks to be a club field only thing. I can't see me trying to fly it in my yard. But I gotta have one and already have the first one in reserved at lhs. But it ain't gonna replace my Sbach.

As for those talking about the price---The plane currently is listed as a Bind-And-Fly...For me, I would like a Plug-And-Play version....

Another thing is the quality---Hollow, plug-in wings with carbon fiber reenforcement!!!...

Lastly, you get HH support which is second to NONE!!!!...I would have more HH/E-Flite/ParkZoneplanes if they made all of the planes that I like...Have 35 planes and 1/3rd of them are made/sold by HH...

I have the E-flite Grasshopper with the Park280 1800kv and scale/sport flying using a GWS 7x6SF with 3s 450 25c GensAce packs I set my timer for 8min and still have some left in the packs. I would guess 5min+ would be doable depending on the flying style.

hone1er, when you say they come with jst connectors, is that from Hobby Partz?

(It's puzzling that the Hobby Partz web site says flat-out that they come with banana discharge plugs! If that's wrong, it would be nice if Hobby Partz would correct it.)

Yup, the gens ace 3s 450 lipos come with jst connectors. I use those batteries to run 3s on my twisted hobbys foamy. It's been like that for a loooong time. I don't think they'll fix it. Maybe it helps keep them in stock a little longer

Weird business strategy -- to knowlingly misdescribe the product inaccurately in order to reduce sales.



I'm 100% with you on the Twisted Hobbys foamies. Wish they'd tell us more about the upcoming micro Crack Yak!

You may be thinking of the recently-released Crack Yak Lite (32") -- which is very cool, but is not it.........
