Nashvegas Extreme Flight Edge!

I was at the field with Mr. Nashvegas and we started talking about this EF 88" complete with whiskey bottle fuel tank!

EF 88" Edge, NashVegas style :-)

FG user Nashvegas and I fly at the same field. When he shows up the big birds come out and there is always some impressive flying. We were discussing his most recent build and I talked him into sharing it with us on FG...

From FlyingGiants user Nashvegas:

Several of my flying buddies have the 88" Edge 540 from Extreme Flight, and if you've ever seen Jase Dussia fly his, you know the air frame can really take a beating. I love the modeling part of the hobby as much as flying, so I decided to do something different with my new Edge so that it didn't look just like my friend's planes at the field.

Specs:

  • DA70
  • Two into one header with MTW 110 can
  • X Mount from Extreme Flight
  • Extreme Flight aluminum servo arms
  • Falcon 24x9 CF prop from Northwest RC
  • Cooper pearl paint from Wings West
  • Custom animated pilot
  • Taildragger servo ext, fuel tank and tubing, wire holders, wire loom, ignition mount
  • Savox 1270's from Northwest RC
  • Emcotec fuel dot
  • 3M carbon fiber vinyl
  • Monokote (black, copper, & carbon fiber)
  • Fuel tank run on Tennessee high octane!

More Info

Here are a few pics, link to the build log, and some info on my project.
