Dood I wont give my opinion on hanger9 junk but here is a real good plane. I have the 28cc version it is so much damn fun super light and talk about fun. I am considering the 2.3 meter conversion for it and going with the 50cc

I looked at that link, I don't think those planes are for me.

I'd like a true scale airplane. 25-33%

Curious though, why do you call the Hangar 9 junk?

Hanger 9 makes good planes, they are not junk.

I've got a 30% SD model Yak 54 and love it, amazing flyer.

If/when I buy my next giant scale plane it will be this one...

Aeroworks Extra 300 100cc

or this one...

Aeroworks Edge 540 100cc

I have no idea what I'm looking for in a quality airplane, but those Aero Works planes look really nice.

I think I just pooped a little when I learned a DA100 engine costs $1150
I think the 50cc variety might be more for me.

Oh, and whatever I get, I need to make sure I can transport it safely in the bed of a pickup truck.

Dood, thanks for opening up this topic. I have recentley regained my interest in planks. After a layoff of 22 yrs I got myself a plane to mess about with. I had forgotten how much fun they were to fly, extremely relaxing compared to flying my heli's.

Now I usually alternate flights between the Logo 600 and the plane when at the field. Lets me just get a groove on by letting the brain chill out after flying the Logo. Mind you, theres nothing like blasting around with the 600, awesome powerhouse machine that it is

What I'm looking for is advice from guys in the know on larger E powered planes. I want to be able to use my current Logo 600 10S 4200 & 5000mah lipos.

What size aerobatic plane would I be looking at? An Edge 540 I here are good for sport and aero flying, quite forgiving with good performance.

What motor size, make would be appropriate?

I have had nitro helis but I do really prefer E power.

Logo 550SX, Uvular Logo 600SE, TT E820

This is A video of my brother flying my 50cc SD Yaq. These are some really tough planes. He flamed his out at 15 feet high,it landed on the bellie and only broke the carbon landing gear. This one did not hurt anything.

Aeroworks is a very high quality plane, no worries there. They make the Extra 300 in a 50cc version and the Edge 540 will be in 50cc eventually as well.

My best advice, spend some time on http://www.flyinggiants.com. THE best source of giant scale rc plane info on the net.

Both 30% (50cc) and 35% (100cc) will both fit in the back of a truck bed.

I have the Hangar9 Extra 260 78" wingspan - beautiful plane. I have two complaints: the monokote has wrinkled and won't shrink anymore, and, the graphite landing gear is pretty much low grade material.

Easy to build and it flies great.

Dood,
You should stick with your first instinct and go with that Wild Hare Edge. The Bunny's are GREAT! I have their 87" Sukhoi and it is an awsome airplane. Now if you really want to get into the plank experience......you should go for two at a time.....

PAU 100cc 37%Ultimate......not much bigger than a 35% airplane but much cooler!.....just given ya options

has anyone here flown a pau edge 540?

i have been looking to get into a 50 size airplane, and get rid of all my small glow stuff that i don`t fly.

the pau edge 540 III seems to be the best,
i have been thinking of using the dl55, or the mt57 on it
