Well I guess I can beat Chris to the punch for today's flight report;
Good thing he let me fly the Edge, cause the rudder servo on my 78" died in an upright flatspin on the first flight of the day. Couldn't get out, so broken prop, bent gear, EF makes a strong airframe.
Anywho, the Edge is an impressive plane, plenty of power, and comfortable right from the gitgo, even though she's not really trimmed or mixed yet. Only complaint I had was aileron response, and that's just a matter of more end point. Thanks, Chris!
Oh yeah, Mark had his EG MX with DLE55, that thing's a rocket.

And WMM fails again... fml.

Looks like I need to buy a good camera and a mac.. lol

here's the raw video from flight #3... My fingers got cold half way through, so I didn't really push the plane to far... Thor got the last two minutes of the flight..

The CG seems to be right on the money, so it's time to start dialing the rates in soon....

found a better way to weigh my plane...

Dry, it weighs 15 pounds 6.5 oz. Add the 3 pounds and some change worth of batteries, it comes in around 19 pounds.
