Thanks for posting the pictures, has there been any changes to the landing gear plate. On the EDGE and EXTRA their is resin on one side only. From your photos it looks like the same setup .

Are you going to do a build review ?

Thanks I'm looking forward to it, EF produce grate quality planes. When you do the build make sure you put extra CA or epoxy on all the hi stress areas, motor mounts and landing gear. Even though they are an excellent quality frame, a hard landing will brake the landing plate and some extra CA or epoxy during the build should stop that. I personally would go with 30min epoxy because it sets harder like and extra coating.

Good luck you must be one of the first people on the globe to have one. I should have one in a week or so. keep the photo's coming.

I've owned 12 of the MG14's and had one failure, they have a bite to much slop/play for me, but they are descent servo for the price. A realy nice quality alternative are the blue birds 373mg's. I now stick with these guys in all my 42-48" size birds. http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s....13sec_/_11.4g

Nice find, I wonder how they fit. I know that the BB's are the same size as the HS65's which is nice they just slide in.
