That plane will rock! Mine weighed over 16 oz's before I finally trashed her. Lots of hot glue repairs! I plan on building another soon after my cap gets destroyed. LOL.

Thanks man for the compliments. These foamies are the best thing that's happened to me in the hobby in a long time. The 3dfoamy stuff flies great and I can dumb them down a bit and practice IMAC. It's amazing how much rudder input you can learn from trying to torque roll and I hope that's going to help me this season. Not to mention you can fly them every day! LOL.

Enjoy it, it is a great one.

Sweet dude I've got the edge 540 pro version and if you havn't flown a pro with the G-force wing, Man you are missing out big time this thing is unbelievable compaired to a flat wing no hunting no jumping around in the air its SU-WEET!!!!!! And the best part about it is that it doesn't weigh anymore than the flat wings do, and there is 0 Zero-zip-nada flex in the pro wing awesome design!!!! Get your hands on one you'll love it.

I finally got to maiden the Raven tonight at work (been raining for weeks now) and I really did like the way it flew...very easy to hover and Torque roll, knife edge was effortless and it did ok on the harriers but I was a bit rusty. The c/g was dead on as per plans and it just felt very comfortable very fast and it did not feel at all heavy in the air or at the sticks..good balance..good feeling kinda plane. I need and can use a bunch more down elevator to get a really flat blender wound up with it but it was nice and steady in harriers. I am probably going to install the landing gear so O can fly it at the LHS without tearing the belly out of it..that concrete is hard The next Raven will be Depron for color scheme sake but the FFF worked good on this plane with all the Zagi tape on it. I am going to try to get a short video on Sunday and I'll post a link.
