You can't do much better than that for items shipped from China.

$13 for EMS, they must have got the parcels mixed up. I ordered a 51" Yak 54 from PilotRC in China a few years back and it was over US$100 for postage. I must have really wanted that plane. BTW it was a dud flyer which was a real surprise, I moved it on for a loss.

Interested to hear impressions from guys that have flown this and Extreme Flight planes of the same size. I have a 73" Pilot Extra and it is definitely not as lightly wing loaded as my 48, 60, 74, and 88" Extreme Flight Edges. It's anolder design so hoping the 78" Edge is improved.

Hi

Can't measure right now. But the DLE 30 fits perfect. Distance from the firewall to the prop hub is 160mm for this engine with standard stand offs.

Hope this helps

Cheers

I have the OS GT 33 in my Hamilton Edge and it was a perfect fit, and flies it with great authority. I cant remember what standoffs I may have used but it was a standard size just to ensure the carby clears the firewall.

Hope this helps,
Cheers,
Phil

That was exactly my concern, will it fit inside a cowl without cutting the firewall.

Thx Fiz!!

I finished up the build on my 26%er and did the maiden. I have a DLE35RA and used a rear mounted rudder servo. I set the CG dead on the CG mark without fuel (the plane is level hanging from pins inside the fuse which should be very accurate). When I fly the plane it is obviously tail heavy. It required quite a few clicks of down trim for level flight then it will climb when inverted. The fuel tank is in the normal position just in front of the main spar. Am I missing something? Everyone seems to be saying this plane is nose heavy at the marked CG point yet I find the opposite.

Did the 22% Hamilton arrive, and is it ready for shipping?

Mine was perfect, but you measured it with an empty tank, as you fly it with fuel in it maybe measure it with fuel in it. Also the best test for tail/nose heavy is at half to two thirds throttle set the plane in a 45 degree climb and then roll inverted. It should slowly nose back down to planet earth, if it starts to nose towards the moon then "Houston we have a problem" - its tail heavy

I think you meant to to say it's tail heavy if the nose goes to the moon.
