I am getting a DLE20 I know that the 30cc would be better but if I ever want to change to different plane I can go to 60-90 size and not have to go with a larger plane . I am tiring to stay in a size that I can carry inside my pickup. I think a 20cc will be OK for the way I fly. The plane 's weight is 6.7# less the engine, so maybe it will be ok.

This one was Sweet landing, point it at the runway and it would land its self, even in a X wind it would grease in.

Check this out, has entertainment and prolly not a bad 50CC deal....

Hey Kids
Thats funny DOG I said the same thing to my wife when we got home that the bes part of the show was finally getting to meet you and your wife it was truley an honor, glad we got to spend a little time wandering around and shootin the breeze. Had I known you bought that baby I might have hid in your trunk lol

The only thing I came close to pulling the trigger on was the 3DhS booth also, they didn't have the one I wanted there though so we decided to make a run to OUr hobby shop but we missed them being open by 15 minutes DOH !!!!

Great Pics also I won't post mine because you have the same ones and look much better than my crappy phone does. LOL
Anyway it was great to meet you and hopefully we can get to your field this fall for some flying time.

After all is said and done I flew at least 25 packs and had a wonderful time with my boy. I cant wait to get him started on the sticks.
Snowdog here, reporting in...no flying for me this weekend; 8 inches of snow on Friday, coupled with a poker night on Friday night, and a second round of dishwasher issues - had to uninstall first dishwasher, take it back to store, get a new one, install the new one, test the lines, no leaks, turn it on and run a cycle, noticed water dripping from right bottom corner of door - nothing to do with any connections; looks like defect, called Sears, they are coming to look on Monday, probably defective, I will need to uninstall, take to store, get a replacement, and do this for a third time. Really glad we got a new dishwasher. I think it was easier to wash the dishes by hand, not to mention the time this has taken away from building. Oh well, nothing more to do today, sunny and warm but winds at 20+ "the wind is from the south today"...so back to the workshop to work on the 58" Edge. Ron, congrats on the beautiful bird that followed you home from WRAM!
Cheers,

Its really a nice day here, little cool but sunny and nice.... Until you send that snow this way. I have to leave in a few hours for a couple days out on Long Island New York for work. That 58 edge is going to be sweet.

Yup, saved big on shipping on the big extra. These wings are in their wing bags and I kid you not, TRIPLE boxed with wood frames protecting the inner 2 boxes. I have not opened the big Fuse box, I would never leave in time to get to NY.

Dishwasher...plumbing.... there is no room in our hobby for that stuff!

Then to make matters worse I pre ordered one from Espirt thinking I'll get one fairly quick.
Well now I'm seeing others get theirs and I havn't even got a shipping notice yet.
O the pain the pain. I miss her so much.
Mine is the 48" Edge 540. Esprit has the Blue ones in stock right now. Maybe its time to upgrade? I love this plane, serious, its way good.

Sorry, $69 for the basic box is too much for me; I'll stick to my primitive carrying techniques and buy another plane.

I'm really not certain that would be an upgrade.
I love my LiL Edge's landing gear set-up, as a matter of fact I love everything about this little plane except it's popularity.

well the winds finally calmed down but I couldn't find anyone to fly with.
