Unboxing!


Just got home from my trip to Mecca! Got there about 1pm in order to give the guys and gals enough time to unpack the new container. Decided to get all the trimmings to build this one ASAP, including the MKS HV69 servos, the motor and Talon 90. Here's what I believe are the first unboxing pics! First impressions... awesome fit and finish as usual! I think I am going to love this one a lot. Will be flying it on my Jeti REX7A (Assist) receiver.

Holy cow! Look at all that composite! I was sure not expecting that. It does look like the level of build quality may have gone up a notch.

How about some pics of the stab and stab saddle, please?

Thanks!

I’m with Doc, it looks like EF has upped the game in this class again. For me it gone from ‘I don’t need anymore planes to I’ve got to have this’.

Now is the time to jump on the 52" train. We've got another one coming this summer that's going to blindside everyone.

Hey Guys,

These have turned up in Australia as well. Any comparison in terms of fuselage weight between the Edge and the slick? The Edge looks like it uses a lot more carbon.

All the Best

Keep an eye on the page below. We'll post pictures on this page as soon as the box hits the doorstep. This will be followed in a day or two (weather permitting) by our usual build and fly report.

We are now live and the photos are up.



It's mostly finished, but I was running my music off my phone and ran the battery down. So, I couldn't take pictures, but I will definitely have more tomorrow.

I've got the kit/build report almost ready and hope to publish tomorrow night......got a few details to tighten up and check everything.

Monday I apply the decals and go fly it......weather permitting.

Really excited about this plane. I thought it looked good until I got it all together, and then it's mega. Really nice looing plane. The scheme is easy to see and I love all the gold on it. The bottom is blinkeringly good. So far I'm thrilled with it. The build went smooth and the set up was pretty close to effortless, including the gyro. It was just a point and shoot exercise. I'm sure it's going to fly the same way.

Who else is building one of these?
