Nice Brad!! Fond memories of all 3 planes and in the best hands possible now

The VW Edge is where I learned about the almighty ZDZ180 and having Joe Smith fly it was an honour.
The Edge is where I realized how good the large Pilot airframes are and how much I dislike the DA120 Paintshaker
The Slick was the testbed for the awesome Mintor220 and my intro into quads

If I end up with a 100cc plane this winter it'll definitely be on short list!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Almost at the field to maiden the CompARF Suhkoi / GP123 / ES pipes

Hoping to weigh it today, but guessing at least 3lbs lighter than the Yak55M. Should be a guided missle with the 123 !!!

I know I probably will. I went with four servos total on the elevators. Next time I will only use two high powered ones.

congratulations Brad. The more fuel you burn through the 123 the more you will come to like it. I sure like mine. With 41 flights on it this season, and I thought I might not burn as much fuel as last year, hmm.
