60 pounds!!! WOW, that is a super light weight Edge! I am sure you are going to have a blast with that!

The 3W-275 weighs 17lbs 12 ounce minus the ignition unit... you can do the math on the final weight of the airplane if you chose to install a 170-210cc motor.... Well below the 55lb weight limit, no waiver needed.

Great Job Anders e

Anders: What batteries are you using. Are you running 7.4 volts to the servos??? No regulators??

I'd like to see some results with a 170 to 210 cc engine in this plane.
