    (This is not a bash of this plane. Read to the end...)

    I have to admit: I didn't really fall in love with this plane for the first few flights. It felt heavy, sluggish and had some wing rock and wing drop tendencies. But since Aeroplus is a top brand, I figured there must be something wrong with my setup. Here's what's in mine:

    8s 4000mAh
    Motrolfly 4330 298Kv
    Castle Creations ICE 100A (or is it 90A? Can't remember)
    Leopard servos all around

    I went through everything and here's what I found out:

    1) This plane likes to fly slightly more tail heavy than a 3DHS plane (which is what I'm used to). 3DHS planes usually fly a bit nose heavy, but I found that the Aeroplus likes a neutral setup better.
    2) I upgraded the firmware in the ESC, which gave me MUCH better punch and throttle response, made a HUGE difference.
    3) I decreased the expo on all surfaces. Again, I found that this plane needs less expo than my other 3D planes.
    4) I paid attention to the split elevator and made sure the endpoints were perfectly matched.

    And, OMG, the plane went from "Meh!" to "WOW!"

    Gone was the wing rock and wing drops. High energy maneuvers were not only possible, but quite spectacular. Hovers were locked-in and nice and rolling maneuvers (to the extent I can do them) were much smoother. This plane is now up there with my 3DHS 72" Extra in terms of planes that are guaranteed a ride to the field every day.

    This Edge and I are going to have some good times together this summer! :beatingheart:

    Great News, I plan to do a Big version of this plane later on.
     
  4. How much flight time are you getting on those batts? Are they in series or parallel?

    Hello and help please,

    I am still pretty new and am presently building a 25% Sbach.

    What is meant by "sealing the hinges" and how do you do it?

    Hi! Sealing the hinges is essentially using something to close the gap between a control surface and what it's attached to.
    It can be done with covering, clear packing tape, or even blenderm tape.

    The easiest is either clear packing tape, or blenderm... And you simply cut it so that it overlaps the hinge line but about 1/4" on both sides of the hinge line, and then apply it. :)

    Great shot, and of course, I love the significance of the text on your hat... :)

    Haha! That was completely unintentional. I'm an equal opportunity pilot of awesome planes. And "Fly the best" is very suiting. This is the best 76" Edge I've ever flown! :) Seriously, it's really good. I think I've worn out the free servos, though.
