Bill Hempel 50% Edge

Just finished my Hempel Edge. Easy assembly, great quality, friggin big.
8711's everywhere (swb)
Fromeco 2 5200's rcvr, 2 5200's ignition
BH Prop
Carbon Spinner
EQ10 power thingy
JR 2.4 rcvr

Positives: Awesome quality, shake the box it falls together, Bills accessory kit is very complete. Covering was a little wrinkled, one heat gun job and it stuck. (easist one I have done). Hold a standard heat iron next to the wing, it does take a while.

Only one negative and I was being picky. The paint on the cowl matched the covering perfectly, but the paint job was 7 out of 10. A buddy repainted the cowl, the colors aren't perfect, but looks better.

Probably the second easist ARF I have assembled. EY Yak being the first. The only reason it was more difficult was purely because of the size. A lot of walking around to get to the other end of the plane.

Definitely gonna do another Hempel plane after I do something dumb with this one.
