Had another great morning flying the 74. This thing is so good it almost makes me look like I know what I'm doing.

On a related note, Futaba S9352HVs are freakin' unbelievable.

I believe those are the ones. Here's a vid of Joe flying his 74, BTW.

You should see him fly his 58. It's a 3D pylon racer.

If the 58" has the motor in it that I think it does...(the A50-14XS)... I can well believe it!! It is a 5S motor, and is the same motor I have to put in mine. Joe told me he tried it on 6S, with (IIRC) a 14X7 prop....and he said it had insane power!!!

Yup, with a 14x7 on 6s I am getting 1500 watts. It's too much power
Problem right now is that I have nylon gear servos

This may be a dumb question but... what is the size tread of the wingbolts for the edge 74" ?? I thought it was a 1/4" but looks to be metric ??

74 Edge Setup Question


I need some setup advice for my 74 Edge.
I have the A60-6XS/ 6S 5000 combo with a Xoar 21X10 prop.

Flies great in level flight upright or inverted. Neutral upgright, Slight down sitck on inverted.

Knife Edge flight is horrible. I have to add Rudder (duh), elevator (about 5% mix) and a touch of aileron as it wants to roll back to level flight.

Is there a setup adjustment that will take care of the aileron and elevator? Is everyone else mixing in some aileron??

Thanks.
