Good for them. I love their products and they are a fair price. One of the best upgrades for any heli I have had are Edge Blades.

That's right McKrackin, the manufacturers in this hobby are giving it to us in the a$$. Actually, they are probably in tremendous debt if they own that baby. Even a cheap Robinson R44 will set you back about a half million $. They likely just pay a fee to get their name/logo on the heli and rent it for occasional use.

I think they photo shopped the edge logo on the heli

No changes are permanent but...change is.

It would be a great photoshop job if you look at the hand written stuff on the tail boom and vertical stabilizer.

Get an edge on the competition...I think that's what it says.

More then likely that they, Edge, made a donation to the local rescue helicopter operation in exchange for a little advertisement. There was an article about a police force up in the northeast part of our country doing this.

can you say "tax write off", i thought you could....... lol

at that level who actually pays out of pocket for anything these days ?

i see hot shots flying around in big jets and driving the most amazing cars all the time, but most of them didn't buy nor own any of them......

I think they actually do own it.If they are making 50 bucks profit off of a set of 90 size blades they would only have to sell 80,000 sets of blades to buy a used one.That's doable

added up my Edge blade purchases.I think I may have bought enough for an hour of operating time

it's better to ask for forgiveness than for permission
