My old Aeroworks edge flies so good bit I can't get enough weight up front with my light hype motors so I was thinking of trying that 3w or dla128. Man am I a sucker for punishment putting those two engines in the same sentence

Just need to pick up some Viton tubing at thunderbolt next weekend if they are at the Kitchener swap meet. Anyways who new another source of hobby stuff is located at the "Beer Store".
