I like my 464kv Motrolfly. Long flights on 6s. Cool temps. I don't know about their distribution to UK if any....

I was looking closely at the 3620 series, and you're probably OK using the lower kv version. But now there's the following warning posted on the Subsonicplanes site:

Warning
The 3620-750 used for 3D flight will not handle hard 3D maneuvers, damage can result to the magnets and stator if repeated blenders, walls, and tumbles are performed and is not covered under warranty. This motor is meant for light 3D systems where slow light 3D is desired. If you are a "Stick Basher" go with the 4315 which can handle this kind of abuse.

I got to hang out with the 3DHS folks at the HMRC Huckfest (Tenn.) a few weeks back, and asked that very same question. Those who have flown both say they fly the same, including none 3DHS team pilots. Joe Smith kindly gave me a "pull" at his 74 and it immediately made my want list Flies very nice and precise, tracks like it's on rails, and has super post stall stability. With the 74s' out of stock I bought a 58 (currently assembling it) to practice with (everyday plane) while waiting on the restock of 74s' to arrive.

I prefer the 58 over the 74. I sold my 74 and the 58 is close to my favorite plane right now, including my gassers (30cc velox, 50cc edge, 150cc extra)

What didn't you like about the 74? And was yours an electric or a gasser?

Got my 58" Edge yesterday.
I did not receive a manual with it. Don't need one really.

But, I have no idea where the CG is. What is everyone using for a CG that flies fairly neutral upright and inverted and is stable in a harrier ( no wing rock )

Thanks

A good starting point is 3.75 in from the leading edge. This is what Joe Smith uses. But setting the cg in the air is better.

I think 74 and 58 feel similar. My opinion, of course.

The yellow 58" Edge will be back in stock mid November.
I have the 41" and 48" Edge and will be getting the 58" Edge in Yellow.

It could have been some set up, and I sold it before I really got it dialed in but it did some things that all edges tend to do. It had poor snap roll characteristics, it also liked to snap in a wall which is to be expected but the 74 tended to exaggerate this. That said i did enjoy it but I like my 58" better, although I loved the silver more than my red.
