This RC model airplane laser cut kit was born out of the demand for a scale 3D capable aircraft based upon the simple construction techniques and solid flight performance of our innovative G-480. Our innovative design features many industry first building techniques including our Truss-Loc(tm) interlocking warren truss fuselage assembly and our D-Loc(tm) wing construction technique - the easiest and straightest d-tube wing you have ever built. Two piece plug-in wings and carbon wing spar for greater portability. Simple battery access designed to enhance cooling air-flow over sensitive electronic equipment.

This kit was given to me by a good friend. It was built with a Hacker 30 in it and was well over powered to say the least. Handled like a dream and would stop in the air with a small breeze. I tend to leave a little power on till real close to the ground before landing. Total weight was 32oz. out of box so real close to flying weight. Would get another one some day.

This is a light weight flyer that flyes bigger than it is. Great fun, responsive, lands easy and the A30-16 provides plenty of power. It makes me look good....

Flew my Edge yesterday for the first time and I am extatic!! No adjective is good enough to describe the airplane: Fabulous aerobat and very pretty. The construction experience is a real pleasure. Only thing I had a bit of trouble with was the turtle deck, but everything turned out great in the end. I would however modify the way to hold the wings to the fuselage: I can barely get my fingers into the hatch to screw them on, and I had a hard time doing this. But all in all, I don't think there is anything that comes near to this airplane (in its size or even larger) on the market.

I wish to thank you for putting this marvelous product on the market.

I havent had a chance to fly this plane yet, but I cant say enough about how well this plane is designed. Every piece fits the next exactly. Its been an absolute joy to build!
