36% Sbach342 with a 3W110 competition engine and a Xoar 27/12 basswood
had just enough time to get 1 flight and it was flawless , there isnt a better 35%-36% out there . moving the rudder servo to the tail made cg effortless and was spot on for flight testing. tomorow if I have some free time I will dial her in and snap a couple pics for you all.

two of my friends were flying their escapades today at the same time. They like to chase each other around and well, that day came when you screw around too much. Yep you got it, air to air collision. It was a heck of a sight and one got totaled and one survived. For the one that survived, his landing gear got ripped off and some repairable damage to the leading edge of his right wing. He had to bring it in for a belly landing and will fly again. The other one was pretty much carnage from the wing forward and the left wing.

All day yesterday flying this PA Addiction was realy frustrateing, only very light breeze and its nearly impossible to fly, makes you look like you have never flown a plane before.

But just before sundown the wind disapeard completely and its amazeing, withing minutes I was doing perfectly controlled harriers with the tail an inch of the ground, I was able to turn all directions in perfect control often delibrately touch the tail wheel on the ground, any wind and its not even worth flying but when theres no wind its amazeing almost perfect, easier than flying on the sim.

Has anyone had any experience with either of these planes?

Parkzone Edge 300
http://www.parkzone.com/Products/De...?ProdID=PKZ5175

or Kyosho Redbull Edge 540 foam version
http://robotbirds.com/catalog/produ...roducts_id=5469

I was thinking about the Edge 300 until I read about the problems with the wings. Now I'm thinking about the Edge 540 but can't find too much info on it from people that have actually flown one.

Any info, comments welcome.

Thanks,
Steve

I have not had one but the Kyosho Redbull 540 looks nice.

I would imagine there similar to my PA Addiction, very nice when there is no wind but horrific otherwise.

I think its what you want in a plane. I havent seen one yet myself but a bunch of NON-AMA park flyer's I know have the 300 from parkzone and say it flies as good as the t-28 trojan from parkzone.

I said well thats disappointing. They asked why I said cause the trojan lacks power I am constantly stalling my trojan. Might have something to do with twice the control throws.

In short its my understandin the 300S is a sport flyer not 3D?

Got a question for y'all. I had a mini showtime with a AR500 Spektrum receiver and on first takeoff it rolled and crashed. When I put it in the Typhoon II, it did the same. Rebind and cleared model memory, good to go. 2 months later, it happens again out of the blue with a uncontrolled right roll. Today a friend of mine flying his Escapade with the same AR500/DX6I radio did an uncontrolled right roll in flight and crashed. Any ideas? Or has anyone heard of this before?

Not sure, but after 4 of the same thing, would be safe to conclude the receiver is faulty and not risk useing it again.

The best you could do at very least is when you bind, make sure all the surfaces are level, thats when it takes the failsafe, so at least if it glitches momenterily the surfaces wont go all over the place.

The last one was with a different receiver and transmitter. Similar results, just different equipment and times.

I would google the problem. If the SAME thing happened with completely separate units I would be worried about a software glitch. Have you called Horizon Hobbies yet?

well, spekrrum makes a glitch recorder that you can install in the plank. That might be worth a try, however, I'd put money on some type of a problem with the software or hardware.

Two of the incidents happened at one sight. One happened at another flying field and the last happened in Okla. So it can't be because of the site.

nope, that sort of nails it down.

out of curiousity, were the similarities in the other equipment being flown like motor, esc, servos, battery etc?

that's why I asked about the site. I always look for a common denominator first, other than the obvious dumb thumbs, which he ruled out.
