Can somebody measure your Edge. It just sank in that the length on Horizon web site can't be right somehow. They say 613mm - might be right, but then say 15.6 inches - this just doesn't sound right and doesn't convert right - which is it?

613mm is 24" and that would be right. So I'd say that's what it is. Just another typo

The measurements on the box cover are wrong for the fuselage length. It's 613mm for sure.

I just did my maiden, it's a blast to fly! My rates are very high so it was a little twitchy, nice power and easy landings. I think I'm gonna keep it stock for awhile, it feels great! First flight was 5 minutes and had 11.6 volts left.

Thanks slo!

I love max throws and massive power!

Looks like Wholesale will ship mine out on Mon/Tues.
The wait will be painful but nothing compared to Tman's Christmas wait of last year!!

It does do better than I thought for slow flight, with some more stick time I could see this this plane doing some crazy stuff, it does do well fast or slow, it didn't seem to have much stall during slow flight.

Good to hear! What did you think of the vertical and straight line speed?

Vertical is powerful, straight line speed isn't as fast as I thought but it's fast. I need more batteries, it's addicting for sure!

2nd flight I pushed it a little harder, went 5:30 and had 11.5 volts left. I'm going to set my timer at 6:00.

I'm an idiot. Plowed her into the ground this am. I looked away from the plane... I never look away from my plane!

Totally repairable though. Straight in. She will take a beating.

Sorry to hear that That's the worst feeling with any plane let alone a brand new one.

Ouch...sorry to hear that. Helicopters or most of my planes I can't look away for a second. Oddly enough Walkera went through all that telemetry stuff with readouts on the TX but who has time to look down at it? All I can mange is to check the timer real quick to make sure I started it.
Wonder how the visibility is with this "slime green" paint scheme? Got to be easy to see and the bigger size I believe is going to help me out from a distance.
