Hey guys I'm looking for the tail wheel parts for my 37% edge looking for the pin that goes through the carbon fiber and the tail wheel assembly goes into and tightens with a set screw. Or the hole set up if you know any one please let me know. I lost it the other day when I was flying Thanks Scott K

I installed a Aeroworks tail wheel on mine. They work really well and only cost $35.00.
Just drill one hole to match up with three of the stock screw holes.

Almost done with my Edge. Painting baffles, and waiting on the graphics. Started the motor yesterday finally. The weather here in colorado has just but horrible. Wind and more wind, and snow. I think it's finally gonna start to get nice, maybe. I'm hopen for a maiden next weekend. I'll be posting pic's soon.

Default Pilot 100cc Edge 540

I have been reading your threads on the balance of the Edge . I have a DA100 with KS cannisters, push-pull for the rudder and lithium batterys ahead of the wing tube. It balances nuetral at this point. The rest is pretty well built by the manual. Flew it just before the snow, it is just a real pleasure to fly and now I can hardly wait for spring!!!!!!!!!! Just finishing off an Extra 260 with a 52cc twin. Runs really nice. Hope all you guys have fun.

Default Ready for a Maiden

Hey everyone. Finally have my Edge done that I purchased from Stuart (Show871).
Weather hasn't been the best in colorado this winter. The new graphics arrived today, but I had no time to get them on. I will work on that this week and upload some pictures when it's complete.


Here's what I used for gear:
DA120 motor with stock mufflers
Vess 28B prop
Smart Fly EQ6 board, Ignition regulator
Futaba 9157 servos on surfaces / Hitec HS7965MG on throttle
SWB servo arms, 1.50 on ailerons, 2" on elevators, 4" on rudder and 1.50 on second servo
Fiji water bottle as fuel tank
Thunder Power Lipo's for receiver power and ignition
Kavan tires
Aeroworks tail wheel
Great Planes 38% Extra Pilot (repainted)
Custom made baffles and painted. Paint is close to the factory color.

When I purchased the plane from Stuart the factory did some sweet option's for him. Notice the SFG's in the one picture. There is also another set of wings with a thicker airfoil and straight aileron's, no counter balances. I'll upload a picture of them later.

Let me kow what you think. The old white graphics will be removed and new ones applied.

AUW is 26lbs. no batteries or fuel on board. That's light!
