Go insane! From the realm of "flies like balsa, costs and repairs like foam" arrived a new plane, the Edge XL.
Loosely based on the full size Edge, the unmatched Red Bull Air Race (TM) competitor, the designer's goal was to make something that flies as good as the legendary Cody Wojcik's Veloxity while having somewhat different looks. You be the judge how well RC Factory managed to achieve this goal.
The early testers' response is extremely encouraging: Jan Votava, junior European F3A champion and World vice-champion, who was originally quite skeptical about this size of models, admitted that he never expected anything like that - yet now he is jumping up and down with excitement. "Everybody is going to love this" was his verdict, just as he never bothered with 3s and loaded the plane with his 1500 mAh, 4s copter battery pack rated at 95C. "The plane goes ballistic and there is nothing it can't do", says Votava.
Insane roll rate, great linear response to all controls, whip-like snap rolls, very steady hover, smooth performance on low rates but total madness on high ones. If you are looking for an insane piece of equipment to wow your friends, look no further.
