They advertise it at 54.4dm2. Which is 843 sq I believe so they must not be counting the fuse area but that does t really math out either

So northwest will be carrying Skywing? If so, that is great news!

I just saw they have some big stuff, hopefully they will carry some 48” and 55”

Yes, they are now carrying the Skywing line.

As to the smaller planes, I believe they will be, but, I am not privy to that info. (but maybe I can find out on Monday )

Jonathan Boisson is not that young, much older than his very young brother Duncan who competed too with the same plane.

I have the impression that all the Skywing wings are a bit smaller, except the Slicks, because they did the XA Models first (ARS, Edge).. I think the Edge 73 will still be extremely good, as it is really light (my friend has a Extra 73, printed scheme and it is feather light and flies superb (since yesterday). The Wings of my Skywing Edge 91 are sligthly smaller than the ones of the 3dhs Edge 92. But compared to the 92 - like I like to fly it (no SFGs, no Tips) it has more wingspan and is overall very light and the fuse is much bigger in every size. The Edge91 is somehow the bigger plane as the Extra 95.

After seeing the pictures from Steve I had to order the printed Edge 73 too yesterday:-), my second 3DHS Edge 74 has to wait a bit longer (still have one in a box, as I liked my first 3dhs 74 that much)

Glad to hear that Olivier!! My good friend sr175 is coming over to my home tomorrow, and I believe he will be bring a 74" Edge (red one) that I sold him to continue putting a gas engine in it instead of the electric set-up I originally had in it, and I will be returning to work on the SW Edge. As noted, I not have the servos, so will first try to finish up the motor set-up, then start in on the controls (I.E gluing in the control arms, pull/pull etc.) This is going to be a fairly quick build as I don't have to hinge anything but the rudder (and I may glue that first, just to let it be curing while working on the motor etc.)
