Fly Low In, and the 41" Edge's death...


Fly Low In was amazing this year! Congratulations to Joe for winning the night freestyle too! Night freestyle was amazing, and will be for years to come. Bonedoc lost an 89", and Twistedgrim lost his vyper. Had a great time at FLI, and thanks to Wamsy for the help with the 8FG Programming. Thanks to Bivens too for the offer to fly the 57", and the 104"! I lost track of time, and will have to take you up on it next year! I'll be ready. Had a great time night flying with the 33" EPP too! The 8FG is an amazing radio.

On to the 41" Edge... Had a little mishap earlier in the day. Went into a full throttle Knife Edge spin, and the motor flew right off the plane, and took the motor box with it. Was able to deadstick land with no damage other than a missing motorbox (found that still attached to the motor). Repaired that with the help or RobJ; Thanks Rob! Afterwards, I let Trixie wring out the plane, and I think she had fun. The death happened later. I'm not fully sure what happened, but all I know is I couldn't pull out of a dive. I'm thinking my motor box repair came undone, but I may have just waited too long. I may try to repair it, but it would basically need an entire new fuse. Due to that, I may sell the electronics along with my spektrum stuff and pick up the 48" EPP Extra. What do y'all think?

FLI was epic.
R.I.P. Edge. I'm glad I got a chance to fly it before it's demise, I enjoyed it.
Eventually you're going to have to take a test drive with my new Extra SHP, I think you'd like it.

Lol, I was attempting to say adios when you were in the trailer getting it as I left! What size is it? I'm not sure whether I should buy a new buck huck, or sell the equipment and get a 51" or 48".

It's the 57" and it's yellow/blue. Neat looking little thing.
Save up and get a 74" Edge!!
