I asked about the Edge and they do not have a sample for me yet so it looks like i might get one sometime this is one plane i really want to try
oh and for us Aussies i was told it could be January before we see them here

cheers chuck
Hey Chuck hi, I noticed ModelFlight au has them in stock so i rang my local shop and they said theyd look into this because as far as they know Feb is when theyre expecting them... they rang back and said my Edge 540QQ is already on its way across from Adelaide. I hope it doesnt have fingernail marks on it (((

When you getting yours

Im guessing a DX5 wont bind to this rx? I am not a spektrum guy, I have a futaba rx on order but was wanting to try it out on the dx5 if it work. lol....We can get the light to blink once when the rx is plug in but that is it. I prefer just pushing a button ha ha ha!!!

I will say though this rx is small that comes with it!

Kevin,

In order to put that receiver in bind mode, there are two pins that need to touch each other while you plug in the pack. These pins are just in front of the elevator plug in the receiver. This receiver doesn't automatically go into bind mode.

DX5e should bind just fine, although its not a recommended transmitter.

Seth,

I knew about the pins, We are using a small screw driver and no luck. We also use some other things. I am going to try it out with a friends DX8 this afternoon. Cant wait to fly it though!

Main problem is that you need Expo and DualRate values- otherwise it"s near impossible to fly this "Green Machine"
If you will check this, set one flight setup without Expo on the Flight level switch in the left, high corner of the DX8 and your friend will switch to "no expo level"- I guess this bird will be like a hornet on speed
Good luck with your Maiden

Language is funny... it's a "piggy-bank"! Ha! If only I could speak German (or any other language) as well as you speak English.

Set your throttle trim all the way down as low as it will go. This should allow it to bind. Also, unless you are completely comfortable with extremely responsive planes I would use a lot of expo on high rates to tame this thing down at least for the maiden. The Edge makes my UMX Sbach seem like a very docile bird.

well got some good weather yesterday so went flying not the best video and not my best flying i guess the lil added weight to this thing really does make it not as stable on slow hi alpha maneuvers but the fast snaps and spins are a blast.
I busted the firewall loose again and now added about a ounce more weight but the good news on that is now even with my 370 batts i can get perfect CG

Edge 540qq some flying action (2 min 54 sec)

When you getting yours
Hi Kurtus, i have no idea if they will give me one to review and seeing as it has been out for a while i guess they may not even bother sure looks like a nice plane and one i'll add to my collection at some time in the future, hope yours is in the air soon.

cheers chuck
