As for flight characteristics, these slabs are absolutely rated "KICK-ASS!" I don't have the thumbs Ian or Andy do, but after flying a MadCap50, Mad540-50, EvoCap, and EvoEdge, I can say this Evo version is light years ahead of the original Mad series... The Mads are a bit floaty (thicker airfoil) and a riot to fly. The Evo's are every bit as fun as a Mad, just crisper, stiffer, and more precise. To put it another way, I had to try to "stay ahead" of the MadCap and MadEdge (and failed to stay ahead of mine at HoBro!) Whereas with an Evo, it almost wants to stay on whatever line you point it to when you release the sticks... The stiffer fuse and no tail-flex is the biggest difference from my point of view.

Thanks for the reminder, I'll need that address in the next couple of days so I can get them to the right place.

Yes, I have been working on the EVO 540. I've already done a prototype and CanCanCase has one of the prototypes as well. I just need to update it with the V3 changes that I made to the cap before I do a run of kits.

I have the one of the Edge protos and after putting a few packs through it last weekend, it flew great with a very slight pull to the gear in knife both directions and it drops the nose slightly when you deflect the huge ailerons but overall really nice combo of tame and wild. It has a nice long moment on the tail but will still do some violent tumbling.

I expect the EVO Cap will be even better.

Actually you have the mad edge prototype that Andy built. Different wing but otherwise the same plane as the EVO edge. What batteries are you using? If the balance is off it would couple some. I don't remember it coupling much in KE but I have a bad habit of flying out coupling without thinking about it so I might not have noticed it.

Had the balance nailed. Inverted and upright no climb or dive. It is very slight coupling and may be fixable with some reflex. Have not yet done any extensive trimming as it was fairly windy. Yeah it has a big fat wing and really moves in and out of stall very easy. I couldn't make the wing rock in harrier like some edges. It locked in real nice.

Looking forward to seeing this kit. Still can't decide on a motor though.

I've got the first ten kits packed, another 14 to go. Packing these takes quite a bit longer than anticipated, there's a LOT of different wood sizes and sheets involved. I really should look at reducing the number of different wood sizes used...

I should still have plenty of time to finish up the packing over the weekend. Expect kits to go out starting the beginning of next week.

E-power: Exceed rocket 3520-800 on 4S

2-stroke: OS55AX on a can. I would actually be interested to see a webra 50 on a can as well with a light build.

4-stroke: Saito 72/82/91/100 or YS 63/70.

So you like the Exceed enough to put on it? I saw you did a review but it seemed you had mixed feelings about it.

My only concern at this point is consistency. If they are all as good as the one I tested they will be excellent, especially for the money. They are less than half the price of my next choice, the motrolfly 3620-800.

I've tried some cobra motors and have generally thought them to be not as good for the money as the others.

OK, I'll go with the Exceed then. The Cobra 100 still a good ESC though?

I am going nitro on the Evo Cap, but the Evo Edge might go E-fag. :rockoncool:

Absoutely, I use them. As a matter of fact, I am just about to place an order for some for me and Case for some shortly. I like their controllers much more than I like their motors.

Caps are almost ready to go out. All the wood and hardware is packed, just have to add the plans and packing materials to boxes and seal them all up. I *think* I should have the time to get it taken care of tonight.

That's good news Ian.

I'm down to one profile, a wild tiger that I was gonna convert to electric but don't want to invest in smaller batteries. My plan is to go with an Evo edge when you release it.

When the time comes, can anyone arf an Edge for me? My current apartment has zero room for building.

I'm not the best with covering but I don't do bad. I could build for you if you were interested.

About to place an order for some stuff
What will I need to complete the cap?
I assume 3 rolls of covering, motor, servos, batteries, wheels and tailwheel.
Is anything else needed?
