I have not had the pleasure of building a kit of yours. I look forward to watching the development.

You're not going to either. I'm just not fan, either of the looks or how the performance is with a swept leading edge. Its a style thing - people also prefer the two place edges to single place but I can't stand the two holers. I build what I like, and I happen to like caps a lot :)

The Fuse is just there to be a profile reference for working out moments right now so it may not end up being a cap in the end but we'll see. I just sold my cap so I'm presently without one in my fleet (not to mention being out of flying profiles).

Caps are awesome. Hands down sexiest aerobatic plane out there in my opinion.

I love the look of a two seat Edge 540t. Maybe that's why I have one. That long canopy is awesome looking.

My point exactly :) Nothing will satisfy everyone either in appearance or flight performance. That's the wonderful thing about slabs. There's such variety that you can have something for everyone!

As a matter of fact that is what has led me to what I'm designing right now. Up till now I've always kept in mind the idea of a plane that is more affordable, easier to build, and easy to fly. There's also selling considerations like "no tube no love" that have dictated certain design decisions in the past. What I'm working on now throws that all out the window. 100% pure designer porn :D If people are willing to pay for it and build it when I'm done I'll make kits, otherwise it will remain one-of-a-kind.

If you do another run on the last cap you had I will deff be interested if funds are there when it happens. Such a sweet looking bird.

There will be more caps and edges as they are now (version 3). What I'm designing now may end up with a cap fuse but it will share zero parts with the existing planes.

I see foiled rons, wing tube, swervo looks like it is all the way at the root rib unless that's something different I'm seeing, round dowel or maybe carbon rod as LE. That's iust a guess.
