LOL!! Nope - no helmet cam this time!!

There were probably 40 spectators standing right behind us on the bank of the pond and pressuring us to go lower and stay there longer so I tried to keep one of them busy by taking the video with my camera!!! That only left 39 voices of encouragement!!!

Perhaps, but after I showed my wife she said I have a pea-sized brain, which I agree with!!

The tricky part was that we were standing about 8-10 ft above the level of the water, and I`ve never hovered a plane lower than where I was standing, so it took a lot to get used to.

That, and I didn`t want to be the guy to go swimming in that infested pond!!

Re: 40% Carden Edge 540 - BBT - Build Thread

Well, after a fun year with this plane, I decided to sell it to help fund my 43% Carden Edge build (http://www.rccanada.ca/rccforum/showthread.php?t=97552) and 58% Modellbau Pitts (http://www.rccanada.ca/rccforum/showthread.php?t=104702) build that will start up in the next 1 to 2 weeks



I`m really going to miss this machine and it`s proven to be as strong and reliable as any of my previous Cardens. It always created lots of discussion at the feilds and anyone that has had the chance to fly it understands what I mean when I say "light is always better"!!

I hope in the summer of 2011 to build an ultralight 40% Carden 260 or 300 with a few other tricks that I`ve been working on!!

The good news - this Edge will be staying at our club here in Montreal (Club Amidair) and I hope to still be able to fly it from time to time!!

Trev

Yeah! Why "would" you let him fly it? He didn't want it anymore.
