Due to the extreme generousity of Aussiesteve, Apalsson, Super08, JediJody, Tseres, JNorton, and others yet to be named, I'm starting an assembly thread for the 37% Pilot Edge. To find out more about their generosity you'll need to consult the following link to the RCU Gas Engine Forum: A Very Special Thank You It's 8 pages (so far) of some fun reading. I'm doing this thread in two forums but there will be some minor differences between posts to allow for the higher level of member sophistication in this forum. Hopefully this will be a pretty comprehensive assembly thread, starting with how Pilot packs their products for shipping, the installation of an engine that's not part of the usual manufacturer group, and many of the installation and equipment decisions made along the way. I'll try to provide a lot of pictures. Understand it will not be a fast moving thread because of work requirements, but it should get done in time for people that might be interested in the same plane to make a purchase and be ready to fly using this thread for info before the next flying season comes around. The engine will be an MVVS 116, decked out with MVVS cans and headers. Radio may be Airtronics or JR. Haven't decided on that yet. Batteries will be A-123's. I don't run ignitions from a flight battery, ever, and the MVVS ignition requires a higher battery voltage, so there will be a separate ignition battery. Servos have not been decided on yet but since all the better digitals and receivers can handle the direct voltage provided by A-123's there is no reason to bother with a "high voltage" servos or regulators. Tailwheel will be a J&J unit since I have a couple on hand. A lot of people came together to make this happen, for which I'm truly grateful. Some mention should be made of Chief's Aircraft, who worked with Super08 and JediJody to move the plane northwards. _____________________________ Never lie, and never minimize or gloss.
