^Something on your scale has to be off. It seems like all of your models come in way overweight (although this one does have landing gear..).

That is pretty heavy. My 38"ers which are not too much smaller were coming out around 12oz. The 40"ers should be not more than 20oz with landing gear.

^His Edge looks more like a 48" kit. But even with landing gear, I can't imagine the weight being more than about 30-31oz or so...

Haha. My bad. I did not even look at that. I just saw it was the edge and assumed that it was the 40". But yeah, it is still pretty heavy for the 48".

@ icy_wind500- Looks awesome man. Great job on the scheme.
Awesome job bud! Love to see what you do after you use the tape a few times

Thanks, but I got really good direction from the thread rpmrpm did on covering with tape. He's the master.

yep ! Its the 48" Edge,
I dun know why but I always get them heavy, in fact I made some wheel pants for it which added on another half an oz or something. But I'm loving the look with the shirt and pants !

Dang that's one slick Edge...

Nonetheless, at 33oz it should fly fine, if not a tad bit on the fast side (at least it will be a realistic RBAR racer )

I agree, both of my 48's are at 32 oz's and fly fantastic!.

Pilots that have flown mine, that have "pro" skills say mine fly great as well.

I take that to mean I did a good job on weight and balance.

Going on vacation next week, but my parents are heading out early.

And yes, I HAVE to take my 40" Juka. Won't fit inside the cab on the ride home, so it has to go in the back

Ok I had a litle fun last night with a keychain camera.
I strapped it to my 28" Extra 300 L and hucked it up.
Anyway I saw something I never noticed.
The "fuse" wiggles or does the wave from front to back. It flies great and this is completely un-noticable from the ground.

Here take a look for yourself.
