    Nicely done and .5 lb lighter than mine so should be a blast to fly.

    Yes it does look good! Me thinks you got a whole lot of fun right there. Slabs are a blast! If the 26cc Edge gets dirt napped hard I know a certain slab on someone's garage shelf getting stolen :sneaky:.

    Ran into difficulties getting the wing on and off and interference with the servo lead in the wing. I have installed the receiver in front of the wing tube and the servo leads in the wing come out behind the wing tube. With the supports on the wing tube (wonky wing tube according to @BalsaDust , haha, see why now) the servo lead has a tendency to get hung up and pinched. To solve that problem I zipped out a couple of slots to cage the servo lead. Works great and alleives quite a bit of frustration.

    Yep the clearances in that area are way to close and present some challenges when putting the wings on. I routed my connections to the front of the wing. Once you put the wings on a few times, you develop a pattern. It seems to hold up good though so the strength must be there.

    Maidened her yesterday. The mojo flies incredible. Very stable and very slow. Tons of fun!! Engine is getting better as it breaks in, but I can definitely understand the need for more power. Pretty slow pullout out of a hover. Also, I need more elevator throw. Was pretty difficult to get it into a KE spin. Had to tease it in. This is going to be a great 3D trainer! Everything happens so much slower and very docile. CG is at the "mild" point as shown on the planes. It does have some KE coupling that should easily be trimmed out. Though, not sure what would happen if I move the cg back. Lands like a pussy cat. Really a blast to fly. Sorry- no vids. Did it alone and I don't have that cool mount for my phone for my hat like that guy @BalsaDust has, lol.
    Thanks again for all the input everyone!
