Yup that was me I ordered the A60-5S for mine and will be running a 20X10 Mejzlik on it with 8S 4000 30C Batt, esc will be CC 120HV.

My ship should arrive some time tue or wed and my motor should be here about the same time.

I chose this motor after talking with Mike @ Aero-Model and going with his recommendations, I told him I want to be around 3000watts with my set up.

I have a few things to get off the bench first and should be getting started on it some time following week.

I'm curious to see what numbers you get with that set up. I PM'd someone that's running the A60-5s and here's what he sent me. 22/10 8c 88amp 2500watt 6250rpm

22/12w 8c 94a 2750w 6400r

21/12w 8c 103a 3000w 6250r

19/12w 8c 87a 2540w 6450r

I know he meant 8s, not 8c. He's using TP 65c 5000's. I found numbers from someone else running the A60-5s with a 20x10 Xoar and he said only 1950 watts and 65 amps. These 28 pole motors seem to like huge props. 21x12w = 74" ICBM and uncharted territory.

This is good to know I am going for the Mejz 22X10 with this motor 8S 4000 30C I hope to have every thing here by mid to end of next week, If numbers are down a little from what I am expecting on the ground and the performance in the air is good I will be happy, Will post findings as I get them.

my 74" in Silver will be here Thursday! Most of the small stuff is in just waiting on a few more things. Going to be hard to work this week! I wonder if I could build it as fast as the 59" Slick?
Our annual fly inn is this coming weekend. Would love to have it flying for the 10th!

Finally got to fly the Edge today. 3 Flights, I really enjoyed it.

First 3D plane I have ever owned that did not say Slick on it.

Right away I notice the differences in flight characteristics.

Overall, I liked the Edge a lot. I need more flights to start dialing it in.

Didn't look other places as I have points I want to use at 3DHS...

And...I have PMed "the KM" to find out, but no response as of yet...may have to just "settle" for a 51" Slick...I hear they fly extremely well...or a 58" Edge in red...At least those I have most of the stuff for....

I got the metal ones off ebay, Futaba spline!!! I have 1.25" everywhere and a bling 3" on the pull-pull. I don't use all the 3" but it's there for wiggle room.
