I flew the Edge last weekend, and I most say that it is an awsome plane. Very little mixing required i KE, and torqueroll was almost hands off. I have a 47% Edge myself, but it is not as "slow" and predictable as the 50%.

I would like to get one, but shipping is quite expencive. And I also think that the new 49% Sbach from Pilot could be a real good plane aswell. And this one I can get in Norway

Hi guys, just read this thread and it sounds like the v2 is a winner Well done Bill

I have a V1 down under in Australia and Bill might remember sending me a three blade prop for my 275. it is a 34.5x13.5 .
Can any one tell me what rpm's they get with this prop on the edge?

Cheers Mike

Have no rpm, but we use that prop on the v2 with 275cs.
Awesome vertikal power an hovers almost at high idle

Its the prop we use in the videos a page or two back.

Re: First Ever!!! New Hempel 50% Edge 540 Version II

Hey everybody,

As usual I am still drooling at the thought of a BIG Hempel plane... but the funds still aren't there (Thanks Mr. Obama), so I am stuck with making planes for the Realflight simulator that LOOK like Bills planes. I am about 95% done a version 2 Edge scheme but haven't seen any pics of the bottom of the stab... Can anybody post one or tell me what it looks like???

When I am done I will definitely let you guys know so you can download it if you want.

Thanks in advance!!!

Scott

With the new lighter weight, would a strong running ZDZ 210 be enough?

Yes sir, if you want one for this year get the order to me quickly as construction has begun for my next container. We can get yours in, if needed.
