Looking forward to it, hoping it will spare me from jumping into a 51 Slick instead of this more reasonable (for my flying site) airframe. Since my Velox was scrapped out, I have an Omega 130g sitting around, all I need is two more new HS-65MG's for Ailerons and a few more 3S 2650's.

Plus.... This plane's scheme is a thing of beauty on the top wings!!! Well actually from either viewpoint!





+1 I'm ready too

New guy asks about 48" Edge

I'm really new so please forgive.

As I understand it 3DHS will soon realease a 48" Edge, right? Buck and a half or something like that?

I've been doing some Google searching when I heard a rumor one was going to be released. That search lead me here. Is this the place to watch for an announcement as to when they will be available? Am I in the right place?

I beleive I have all the running gear ready and waiting.

One of my search results was a bit old but seemed to indicate possible late May release. Then another indicated possibly a June release. Reading this thread it appears a date hasn't been anounced yet, is that the drift?

Again I appologize if I sound so out of the loop. Just looking for the place to plug in.

Thanks,

Ben's last update on them was at the end of May

"The 48" Edges are in-build, we expect to announce them being on the water in the next 2 weeks."

As soon as the planes set sail, they will be available for pre-order.. set you clock for the middle of June for that... Shipment, arrival...no hiccups.... then it is up to customs to sniff boxes, and clear... (that is the unknown).... after that a train ride to TX and out the door to you all

Stay tuned to the thread and you will know when its time

Kewl, thanks! I have found the place to be. And I think by monitoring this thread and being I've requested email notifications from this thread I'll know when pre-orders are being taken and can make the purchase.

Thanks again!

Dan, RCGroups.com is the place to watch. Someone in this thread will certainly point out when the new 48" model pre-order is announced. There will be a new thread for the 48" Edge in the 3Dflying forum, so we'll all jump over there when the thread is started and the pre-order is announced.

The last time I talked to Ben, he said early June pre-order. So barring any shipping/customs trouble, we should be seeing a pre-order this week or next.

Make sure you get in on the pre-order, as I wouldn't be suprised if they sell out before the container hits shore.

The Edge is the most forgiving 3D airframe out there.

But what does the Blue Edge even look like? I thought there was an Orange scheme and Silver scheme.

Is the blue scheme the same as the orange one but in blue?

When it will be a while before the next batch of a particular model will get restocked... they pull the model page so they don't get backordered. The silver/red/black actually sold much faster then they anticipated.

I've been debating between the new 48 edge and the 47 SHP. I was leaning towards the shp because i love the blue livery, but now thtat the buck 1.5 will be blue im leaningtowards the buck. Has 3dhs announced the required components for the buck1.5 anywhere yet? I will preorder that puppy right now if i can use this 55amp esc and hs65mgs ive got burning a hole in my parts bin...

I'm guessing those will work fine ferch. I plan on transfering my whole power package from the 47" to the 48" I am sure your 55 amp esc will be fine and my omega 107g has PLENTY of power for it... unless the 48" has gained some significant weight over the 47." Mine flies great and it has a lot of epoxy in it I have a 45 amp esc in my package.
