Epic flying weather today! Not a cloud in the sky, 65F, 0-5 mph winds. Flew my 76" Aeroplus Edge and my 88" Aerobeez Slick. Great day!

Sunny, 50s and gusting up to 27mph (according to nearby airport). Straight crosswind most of the time. Made for interesting landings. Only broke two props.

I'm looking at a 3DHobbyShop 92" Edge that I would put a 12s 5000mAh system and a Motrolfly 5335 into. Should pull a bit over 5000W. Please tell me I'm crazy and this is a bad idea! :) (I could...

If it's super hard-core 3D, get the TW Laser.

I need a black electric Xoar 18x8, but they don't seem to make electric props in black. I'm thinking of just sanding down the varnish a bit and spray-painting it high gloss black. And rebalance it of...

I agree with Chellie. IMHO, CG measuring jigs are of limited use. How the plane flies is more important than exactly where the CG is. 1/4 from the LE is good enough for the maiden. Put the plane in...

I do APC up to about 14x7 and wood above that. The reason is that the plastic (composite) props tend to get a bit too wobbly above that size. I have a 16x8 APC on my 58" Edge and you can clearly hear...

I agree with Mark. The first thing I would check is whether the prop shaft is straight. Does the plane vibrate more than usual when you spin up?

You hit the head on the nail! The plane in question is super floaty and has a very benign stall. However, it's got a bunch of mass and it's apparently not very draggy, so it just keeps going. Shallow...
