Been looking for a plane that I could swap the gear into from my totaled PA KMX. This looks like the right plane

The green and black Eage looks awesome. Is there any other differences from the 55" EPP Edge other then the PP skin and clear canopy?

Love the looks of this plane, great color schemes! And 55" planes fly sooooo well!

Looks like the wings have the new foam internally that is being used on the 47" Laser, hard to be sure from the photos, but it would be an improvement if correct.

There's nothing wrong with my current 55" Edge, perhaps unfortunately.

Yes the EPP 55" edge is my favorite also, this will be an excellent replacement when that time comes.

I'm kind of hoping Aerobeez will carry the new 55" edge soon.

I learned to 3D on a Edge55, destroyed 3 of them in total. I made progress with this plane, not much with the PA MX. I still love the plane. Had to order a pp 55. Red :-). Hope pp makes a stiffer wing. I also love the Slick61...

PP material is quite different from EPP or the Monokote used on balsa planes. It has both good tensile strength and compressive strength. If you build a small cube out of PP alone it is quite rigid. If you build a similar cube out of EPP it is very flexible and will not hold much weight before collapsing. The result is a wing and fuselage that are definitely much stiffer than EPP hybrid wings or fuselage. I have compared my Skywing 48" pp Laser to my EF 48" Laser and the Skywing Laser seems stiffer than the EF Laser and is a bit lighter as well! I think that is why these new PP planes perform so well.

How do you think the PP finish will age ? Do the white parts get stained like EPP ? Does the paint stay a lot better on PP then EPP ? Is it possible to wipe the plane with a damp towel without altering the surface like monokote ?

So, the first one (red one) arrived in Switzerland... The finish is MUCH better, the wings are stiffer compared to the old epp 55 and many details were changed. But its much heavier...... I think the motorbox is stronger and the canopy is MUCH nicer. I am not sure if I trust the magnets for the cowling. I hope I can fly it soon and test it in Low3D.
