I flew one for the first time yesterday and broke the landing gear beacuse I brought it in too slow. The other comment about this is dead right. This one broke at the attachment bolts to the fuse. Easy fix...
Definately use bigger wheels and remove the wheel pants if you land on marginally long grass.

The planes flies great otherwise with a Park 480 outrunner direct drive.
NO problem with power.

Lotsa fun...Enjoy and good luck.

I have the Mini Edge and read about the gear not being very sturdy so replaced it with an aluminum set from 3D Hobby. I also had an APC Slow Flyer prop which practically stopped the airplane in flight when I came back to idle on landing. ( not fun ) I replaced the prop with an "E" prop and now when I back off on the power, she glides in nicely. So much so, I dumped the aluminum gear and went back to the stock Carbon Fiber. I am running a 250 watt Dualsky Outrunner with a 12 X 6. Great verticle and with proper throttle management, I get tired long before the 2500ma battery does. Awesome airplane.

Ditch the wheel pants and install 2 inch Dubro Foam wheels. Unless you have a very smooth landing field they like to cartwheel.

My landing site is actually uphill, so hot landings are necessary.

I'm running a HiMax 2816-1220/ Phoenix25/ 10.5 APC/ 1500ma 20C lipo on my Funtana.

Ever since I learned to fly better, I've had a lot less radio problems!
