    Not exactly a giant, but I bit the bullet and pre-paid for mine at AMR even though it is just getting put into a container for it's journey on a slow boat. Already got some good stuff for it from Pro-RC. There is a thread on a dual build of a pair of 35cc elsewhere Tom posted that I'm paying attention to. I'm going with a separate iggy battery though.

    I am not sure which is more cool, that prop, or a Wahoo sighting. A blast from the past for sure.

    I haven't flown the 35cc class but if I get another gasser, I will probably go that size. I cannot store a trailer at my house per HOA and there's not room in the garage so I put a soft tonneau cover on my truck 6 months ago. It's been a great compromise and a 35cc would fit underneath it no problem so I can keep it out of the wind and weather.

    This is definitely a tweener. We moved to a house without a basement, only a crawlspace. It had to fit in my shed and anything larger wouldn't fit among all my wood working tools, seasonal storage bins and the other aircraft including a 20cc. My build table will be outside of said shed so it will be a fair weather assembly, lol. As for transport to and from, my '09 Escape is big enough to haul a 50cc.

    Very cool! I just got a crack Pitts and love it. I have a crack Yak that has had the absolute sh!t beaten out of it and was ready for a new one. Who would have thought you could get over $200 wrapped up in a foamy?! So worth it though. I got the digital servos power package, carbon fiber upgrade kit, etc.
    Awesome flyer as I am sure you Edge will be!

    Dunno how it flies yet, K-dub...weather has sucked for a 5.5oz foamie and when it hasn't it's been priorities (or I've had a few beers). So far it has been a PITA.

    My fault for not going with the TW power package and thinking I'd be fine re-using stuff. Tried to use my old Hacker A10-5s, but after powering it up mounted in the airframe on Hacker's fiberglass mount (perfect fit, btw) with a prop, it screamed in agony. Bearing or shaft issue that didn't present itself when I set everything up before install. So I caved and got the Twisted Hobbies 2203-1800Kv and cut out the Hacker mount for the TW supplied one. Plen-tyy of power! I guess I have flown it, kind of.

    As for reusing stuff, I had some Eflite S75's kicking around from a buddies relatively new foam Cub that he gave me when he got out of the hobby. All seemed good until one had a load on it. Ailerons wouldn't center...spazing out and fluttering. Replaced the ail servo with a new S75. All is good now. Fixt this thing twice so far. Tough lil bugger too.

    You're right when you say you can dump a lot into this lil thing. Learned a lesson or two in the process. :confused:

    That's the best time to fly them!!:D
    Yeah I learned the hard way about reusing stuff that might work, or fits pretty close, or should be adequate. Best just to buy what works best and be done with it...live and learn.
