really wish that someone in Australia stocked Skywing planes. I'd also like to see the traditional shrink covered 48" Skywings come back....or even better 52"

I do miss Max and BestValue RC, I would not have known about Skywing if it was not for him. Shame he disappeared as a source for Skywing.

I asked Skywing and the would ship a Edge61 to similar prices as it was from Max a few years ago. To Europe....

I have the V1 74" Edge and one thing that Skywing needs to take note of is that the thing that a lot of people have commented on negatively is the number of times that "Skywing" is on the plane. If I were to put the SFGs on my plane, it would say Skywing on it ELEVEN times!!! That is was too many time. Maybe one time on each side of the fuselage or tail, but leave it at that.

hahaha, I will tell him. I just guess he is really proud of his work (he designs the planes, he is the major testpilot and can do every job in his factory).

Well.. the first and second things that one of my good flying buddies said, was..

#1.. nice plane

#2.. that he hated all the 'branding' on the plane, and wouldn't buy one because of it..

I really want to know how good this plane is in precision. It must be perfect in Low3D. The Skywing Slick61 is much better in Low3D and XA than in Precision. The Laser 60 is great jn precision- can do everything with the fastest rollrate I know. The Laser is not as superslow as the Slick, but prefer inverted harriers with the Laser. Still have the laser, but my Slick61 crashed... Still love my Laser in Low and Slow.

I love the looks of the Edge61, but at the moment I would also like to have a EF Extra 60V3 (more $$ and much smaller fuselage - I guess from the pictures and other Extra V2s).

The small planes are practical to have next to a big one in the track. Youx can easily double flight time and exercise more.

Finally finished building my edge yesterday and put 5 flights on it today.
Here are some pics of the build.
2 of us have found that the cowls are quite tight on the Edge, I didn't have any problems like that with the 61" Skywing slick though, yet they appear to be the same.
Took a few flights to get the cg where I liked it. I have found that with both the Slick and the Edge that if the cg is too far rearward, the horizontal stab will stall before the main wing when landing, moving the battery slightly forward fixes that in both instances.
I have been taking it easy so far, just the usual maiden take off, straight into a hover, power out and up and then throw in some knife edge spins for good measure.

Thoughts so far, flies very similar to the Slick, more tuning (especially elevator throw) required though to dial it in.
