LOL
With some weight trimmed off the power to weight ratio will be better for sure with the 275.
I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of the assembly.

Is Version I going to still be available?

What other covering schemes are going to be offered?

Hey Mike, looks great!!

As far as the counter balances go.. I am copying the real Edge's in the Red Bull Air Races. Take a look at these real Edge 540's.

Not sure what in version 1 you would still want. The new Edge's are improved over the last ones. I will have the original schemes avialable with the next batch that come in.... I may modify the schmes a little just to be a bit different but overall the same basic scheme will be avialable. Red/Yellow and the FLAME scheme.

No, I got a New Yak from Bill and pick it up this Saturday to replace this one. I am hoping to use this Edge to get my dad back into Flying large scale again and of course a few videos

Oh, I was just curious if there were going to be 2 version available. I'd love to get one (version II) in the Team Edge scheme.
