Looks good! I'll have to take a look at their kits! I haven't looked at their selection for quite awhile!

Re: 43% Aerotech Edge 540

Well, I have been waiting to start this build log for a long time. Thanks to Matt, Kevin and especially Mel, for their hard work in getting this kit up to Canada. Let me tell you it was quite an ordeal, especially for Mel. Once I got the kit home, after a five hour drive to pick it up, I did the usual unpacking and detailed inspection. Everything arrived in perfect condition, all the foam cores will need is a little sanding, the fiberglass pieces were perfect and the wood was top notch. Other than there being a few missing pieces, which Mel is already getting ready for me, and assured me that they would be there by end of next week, everything is perfect. Here is the plan:



DLE 170 on stock mufflers
Hitec 7980s all round
Hitec 7985s for the throttle
JR 921 9 Channel DSM2 PowerSafe Receiver



I have spent a lot of time viewing the many Aerotech build threads and am looking foorward to all the excellent builders comments and especially their advice. This means you Kevin, Matt, Sensei, jmiracle. Here are a few of the many pictures to come.

Re: 43% Aerotech Edge 540

Kent, from looking at your thread on FG I would say it is time to fly that thing!! Any progress on getting the correct CG?

Re: 43% Aerotech Edge 540

Still working up the courage. I thought by posting the complete build on RC Canada it might motivate me to either fly it or sell it.

Re: 43% Aerotech Edge 540

Well I have not been able to do much building, still waiting for my missing pieces (which include the build on plans and updated manual) but I managed to punch out the laser cut piece and sand them. I also took the main gear to a friend to have them powder coated. I also started to puzzle piece the motor box together without glue.

Re: 43% Aerotech Edge 540

Next was to bring together the nose and the tail. Lazer cut pieces were perfect, like putting together a flying jig-saw puzzle.
