Not carrying anything but my opinion.

Ok, ok, obviously Dan doesn't like the scheme. Me, I cannot possibly build enough Orange 41" Edges to keep up with demand, ergo the 48" will be orange.

no Dan... I don't care at all that everyone is on the bandwagon, seriously. I don't care. But you're about the only guy I know around here posting that seems to go out of your way to make sure your negative opinion is known. This is the difference.

I love the 41 Orange, and have one too! Its a very simple classic scheme. I would love to see the 25% Edge come with the original blk/red scheme.

I liked the black.white.red scale scheme too, but it was unpopular compared to, for example, the 47" SR scheme. This business doesn't allow for very many or large mistakes in product planning or marketing, so we have to temper everything we do with good business sense. You know how it is.

Well, you don't HAVE to read his posts...its just his opinion....

Personally, I would have loved to see the pearl green scheme come back, but I know it won't happen. To me that pearl green reminded me of a really well restored classic car paint job. I just love the way it looked in the sun. The new orange is only okay. But if it sells...

ya, there's fun to be had with greens... but like Ben posted above, a whole bunch of personal favorites wont see production due to needing a broad appeal...

hahaha... I can't fly well enough to care about the scheme... everytime I take off I wonder if it will be a scattered pile of balsa when it lands.

I'd say it's excellent impetus to start a new thread when the 48" arrives.

While I DO like the orange scheme for the "buck and a half", "is" there going to be another scheme? Curious minds want to know (well at least one curious mind.. )

And though it may already have been posted (and my feeble brain just doesn't remember), is there an approximate date of arrival for the plane?

It took awhile for the original orange to grow on me. The new Buck 1.5 scheme I liked right off. Good contrast for visibility.

Love the new scheme, much better than the old red scheme which needed a ADC vinyl kit to come alive. Not crazy about the wire landing gear,kind of a backwards step imo.
