LOL!!!

Time will tell Jack!!!

I don't have cans as a benchmark, but I may try to borrow a set from someone local.

Even 200 rpm is a huge gain in power on these props, since the weight from cans to pipes is similar and the pipes only cost about $80 more than cans!!!

Should be an exciting test!!!

I have the cans for the 3W210. You can borrow them if you like. I don't need them for a month or 2 yet

Re: BBT Extreme 43% Edge w/DA200 on PIPES!!!

I feel bad posting here as I'm still stinging for Trevor for his Ferrari. That being said...WOOHOOOO!! I can't wait to get my thumbs on this one. I'm 95% sure we're going with S.Bus. My previous experience (as well as Chris') is 30yrs of RCing anything from the little .40s to my now sold Carden 40% Edge/DA150. This includes a few years of high altitude UAV flying with a telemetry plane and video downlink. I'll have to post some videos of that later. It's going to be great jumping back into Giant Scale and I know Trevor will do a fantastic job with the build!

No worries David... Just gives me a reason to build my own 43% Carden now!!!!

Congrats on the SBUS plans... The only way to go, especially if you're already ORANGE!!!

Please post some videos of your UAV stuff!!!

Should be a very fun build and a chance to combine a whole bunch of goodies into one of the sweetest planes around!!!

Yep - these 43% Edges are supposedly one of the nicest flying Cardens to date and, being longer than the 40% versions, they are supposedly very smooth like the 43% Extras.

Also really, really excited about starting to test the DA200 on pipes - I'll start a thread on FG for the header-length testing and will post the link here!

Re: BBT Extreme 43% Edge w/DA200 on PIPES!!!

I just couldn't resist tonight

I had to unpack the (5) boxes

Box #1 (the odd-coloured box) - landing gear
Box #2 (in front of the largest box)- motorbox parts
Box #3 (closest to the camera) - fiberglass parts
Box #4 (long and skinny) - wood box (please note all the drool marks)
Box #5 (the big one) - all the foam parts

A few comments:
1) HUGE!!!
2) Way to go Dennis and Caroline at Carden on the quality!! - the wood is a thing of beauty, the router-cut motorbox parts are works of art and the glass parts are phenomenal
3) Nobody can pack a kit like Caroline - meticulous!


I can't wait to start!! - Maybe tomorrow night

You forget just how big these 43%'ers are until you unroll the plans

The rudder on the 43% Edge is absolutely gargantuous!!!... that's a 1-foot ruler on the plans

This morning, I set the DA200 and pipes on the plans and started working on the lightening details for the motorbox!!
