Horrible Test Pilot

SA Edge 540

Hey all, here's my Edge.
Some specs.

Stevens Aeromodel Edge 540
Hacker A30-16M
LiPower 3s 2100
APC 11x5.5E
Hitec HS-55 (soon to be replaced by JR digitals)
AUW 33oz

As you can see from the pictures, I copied the covering scheme from my .90 Edge. Not completely though. Some of it I just got too lazy (trim on wings), and some of it I changed for better visibility. I left the elevator and horiz stab solid colors to aid in less confusion. I can't stand it when I don't know which way is up.

The plane has 5 flights on it now, and I'm still working on the thrust line (climbs while inverted). I'm very impressed by it's flight manners, it feels a little loose, but I think it'll tighten up when I go to digital servos. It does however do everything well. Snaps, spins, pattern flying, etc. But my favorite with this plane is rolling harriers. Granted I'm not the best pilot, but this plane acts like it was made for this.

As you can probably tell, I'm very happy.
