Hey Ben thanks I tried to knock the blind nuts out with metal bolt screwed in, only to crack the rib, they are in there good. I would break the rib trying to get them out . I found some bolts that work very well so ill just use them unless you know an easier way to remove them.

Very Cool Doc!!!

I especially liked the super slow rolling harrier sequence. Very enjoyable.

Maiden my 47" today Got 6 flights and I really like this plane!! I used the 2814-820 thinking that the 3s would feel weak and wanting the option to run 4s but 3s is perfect for this plane! Also glad I used the heavier motor due to cg, I have the pack in the center of tray and it climbs inverted. I found it ballooned when i cut the throttle so I mixed in some down elevator with low throttle. Is this ok instead of adding washers? Not sure if anyone else will agree but I think it fly's better than my slick. It could be it just fits me better. I felt much more comfortable flying the edge. This thing is so floaty yet very responsive all at the same time. Thanks to Ben and Scott for developing such a WONDERFUL flying plane. Never have liked green but that green WOW is all I can say.

The Edge is a lot less airplane from a size and expense viewpoint, and that kind of tilts the comfort quotion toward the Edge a bit. While the Edge is a really nice airplane, the Slick is just too damm nice, and I probably like it too much.

I'm more comfortable flying the Edge than even my SHP, and this really surprised me. I've got a 40" under construction, but and flying the 47" convined me I want a 55" as well.

You are probably right. The edge is so gentle and me being new to this type plane is why I feel more comfy with the edge than slick. Plus I was having a bad day with my slick I have been practicing harrier landing and got pretty good with the slick. No more hard impacts yet today I could not for the life of me get a good harrier landing. Thanks to ben it is built strong enough that it can take a beating!

Yup, the 47" Edge is definitely my favorite plane of all the ones I've owned. I also really like the 40" a lot too, but 47" takes it by a nose with slightly better performance and stability. I really like the 55" SHP, but have yet to get over the psychological issue of flying such a big, beautiful, 5 lbs plane that cost a lot more money. I'm working on these issues, and the Edges are helping a lot! The only issue for me now is that I have to keep up with more and more threads!

Hopefully I can have my green Edge here by the end of this week or early next. Can't wait to get it built and flying. How about some pics or vids? Why is the 40" thread kicking this threads butt?
