    Skywing 91" Edge 540 V2 Assembly Thread

    I've seen small cutouts for the DA70 caps on another 91 Edge. Here's some video and you can see the cutouts at the beginning. https://youtu.be/P-cfzH3aRTo

    Skywing 91" Edge 540 V2 Assembly Thread

    Looking good SnowDog. Don't forget on these newer designs that the gas tank is designed to go on the shelf where your RX batteries are. This keeps CG consistent from full to empty tank.

    Skywing 91" Edge 540 V2 Assembly Thread

    Great build progress SnowDog! Put z rudder in the tail push pull. My electric setup is usually more tail heavy than gassers and my rudder servo is in the tail. And a little snippit from last evening's flight before the club meeting started.

    Skywing 91" Edge 540 V2 Assembly Thread

    Sorry AK - that tip was meant for SnowDog on the Edge. I've also found that to hold true on my 120cc SW ARS - needs less rudder than full throw.

    Skywing 91" Edge 540 V2 Assembly Thread

    AKNick - A setup suggestion: setup your rudder throw to be parallel to the elevator bevel or just slightly more throw. It's a big rudder and if you max out travel, the plane gets a little squirrely. I received this tip from SupaTim.

    Skywing 91" Edge 540 V2 Assembly Thread

    Having a number of electric planes, I've learned to manage the throttle to extend flight time. I also use mah consumption telemetry to manage my flight duration. I'm getting an average around 6.5 minutes flights with a mix of low n slow and XA. The pilot figure is from Aircraft...

    Skywing 91" Edge 540 V2 Assembly Thread

    I'm using a Dualsky GA6000.8 on 12S-6000mah. Prop on the maiden was a 24x12 electric wood which has subsequently been updated to a 24x13 Falcon electric carbon. Fully loaded, I'm somewhere between 20.5#-20.75#. Got lucky with a warm weekend in the middle of winter then. Got out yesterday as...

    Big Electric plane show and tell

    Up to a 120cc size electric now. Utilizing a custom belt driven gear reduction unit and a Scorpion 800-size heli motor. I managed to get video of 3 different pilots flying the electrified 105" AJ Laser. None of them IMAC style flying although Alex Barron did perform a number of high speed...

    Turbines are cool...

    And Frank knows how to have fun and put on a show. I captured this video over Memorial Day weekend. Good flight on a windy day but not as spectacular as his demo at xfc this year.

    Bill Hempel 30-35cc Extra Build Thread

    Added two washers to the left side stand-offs for a little right thrust and and some vinyl graphics to dress up this bird. Really flying nice now. Had it up in 14-20mph crosswinds and it performed great and the graphics popped in the air.
