Hey Bro's, I wanted to tell you about this profile on E-bay. They are going from 77.00 - 100.00 plus 22.00 shipping. I got a couple for me and my friend wagas. Man they are a blast to fly and for the price they are going for you can't beat it. They come with complete hardware but like everyone else I only used part of it. The covering is good and tight but if you peel it back and try to re-iron it you are going to have some issues. I have another coming that I'm planning on stripping and re-covering and going to use a saito 72 on. The one I have now has a OS 40 fx which is just about right could use a little kick in the butt. But wanted yall to Just check it out. Maybe Wagas will chime in about his. Here is the link to them. He usually keeps two auctions going on at a time.

Just look on the side of the page and click on View sellers other items and he usually has 2 listed at a time and when one sells he puts another up.

It's only problem is it's an ARF. Other than that It's one of the best flying Profiles I've flown. It's the only airplane I've ever felt comfortable with taking off into a loop and then landing. No snap tendency at all. I swear if flies and tracks as well as my Carl Goldberg Extra. I've got a weak 46 on it now and like CW said it needs some more UMF. It's little larger than most my other profiles, It just fits into the back of my escort wagon wingtip to wingtip. If OMP claims theirs flies better than this one then SIGN ME UP MAN! Oh the covering SUCKS too, it's ok but don't touch it with a lot of heat or you'll have a mess.

I just looked on ebay and I see one for 109.00 as the 'buy it now' option. Of course there is the shipping, but thats an even better value than the EF Edge.

This one rocks...I've been flying it for awhile now. OMP is having a second run of them pretty soon with some good improvements including Ultracote instead of the crap-o-kote. Super light awsome flying 3D'r

Someone earlier referred to the ebay ones as Alpha versions. Whats the difference? I noticed that omp has Beta on their versions. Just the covering?

These aren't "alpha" versions. Accel just had some overstock that they are liquidating. This was version#1. version #2 will be on store shelves in a few weeks.

The original manual sucked. I wrote the new manual. V#2 also has slightly larger control surfaces and some other small changes, like a better hatch. Not big things.

I have started working with Accel in product testing, writing manuals, etc. The main distributor will be OMP. You will also see some in your LHS.

Let me know if you have questions.
