My Twisted Hobby / RC Factory 39" EPP 540 Edge started to feel a bit too easy so I sold it. To replace it as a quick and compact every day flier I purchased Skywing 38" Mini Edge 540 from HobbyKing.

The plane went together easily without problems. I fitted it with Emax GT2215-09 (KV1180) motor and four Emax ES08MA II metal gear servos. Turnigy Plush 30A ESC was used to power it together with Turnigy Nanotech 3S 1000mAh batteries.

I have to say that this is one wonderful full fuse plane. A great step up plane before going up to balsa planes. It knife edges like balsa planes, I need to mix it a little to get knife edge adequate, but flat spins are really crazy! The plane doesn't seem to wing rock at all and if flies really slow considering its weight. Harrier landing is easy...
