    Awesome. I've always liked the 48" and 55" kits.

    Ok, it's been a while, so here is a quick update. I took a photo, with all the parts laid out on the table......and had to move the table, so the parts are currently back in the box....
    LOL, but, it WON'T go into the closet......just needs to find another table, and perhaps, a couple more people watchin' this thread...and I'd bang the sucker out.

    Xpress, you got time to build it and fly it? If so, maybe red7fifty would box it back up and send it your way. I shipped it to him so it would be built and flown. :thumbsup:

    We can also play a game, of pass the Foamy around! lol
    There was this Giant Scale Planes Edge 540, 84" w.s., that was owned by probably a dozed, if not more, people in this area until one of my friends finally ended up with it, and it flew for the first time about a year and half ago. lol
    4 of my friends actually owned it (it got used like the town bicycle)....one of my friends ended up with it TWICE! With a LOT of my help, we got it put together finally, and the DLE60 Twin would not run reliably on Maiden day.....so it missed flying that season. Over the winter (3 years ago) it got converted into Brushless.......again, before it got flown, it was sold again.
    It finally flew. That ARF is over 10 years old, probably near 15 years now.....and I don't know the full list of owners......but I do know the past few years:
    Todd owned it around 2012
    Then Greg
    Then Brandon
    Then Anthony
    Then Greg again
    Then Kevin.
