My Pilot Edge grew on me. At first, I thought it was ho-hum. But it presents itself real well. Does real well with the direct sunlight. It has seen +30.
I am just changing out the wheels now. The original ones are beat hard. 74 flights, all on grass. No outer skin left on them.
Photo's later in the day.

Change the axles too if they are originals.
The pilot axles usually break after that much flying.

Thank-you John.
Mine did on the third flight. 90 seconds into flight four, a wheel dropped out of the wheel pant. Now that I have some Sky Light wheels, I will re-install the wheel pants. That was about the nicest one wheel high land I have ever done.
Since then all my 150cc class are sporting Dubro 1/4" axles.

Bradley, I did not fly the Big Edge this week-end. But it will get a pile of flights on it next week-end. BansheeBoy, and a few others are camping over with us to do the "Big Fuel Burn". I'm hoping to watch Jeff burn 20 litres plus, ha-ha.
As for Brodie, he flies home today, hope he gets flying with us soon!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Bradley, I watched your video from this week-end. First thing I was looking for was the #17 on the stab. Is it still on there?
Caught that in an earlier video of Trevors, ha-ha.

If you are going to use that as an excuse. Forget it. We flew all day Sunday. Your glider would have been gone with the Pelicans man. Matt was getting defined lift with his Big Styrofoam Turd (FPV machine).

We miss you little buddy, safe journey today.

A trick Trevor has a hard time shaking from his days on a trainer.
If you can read the #17 you are looking at the bottom.

Well, my new wheels are on, pants back on. So the silicone will be cured for the week-end. If you want to be a friend of Jack's you need to fly with pants on.
(there is your lead Trevor)
