Ding Dong... I guess I'll chime in.
Well, I saw where BB called it a POS, and I felt like he was just giving Gator some shit, I guess.
As for the plane, it is just not to my liking. I couldn't harrier it worth a shit, and removed elevator throw to try what Wayne sadi. I still couldn't harrier at all. I moved the CG back, and still couldn't. In Memphis, Gator flew mine, and told me to take off half of my lead. He thought the CG was too aft. While he was flying, I'looked over his shoulder and saw his technique for a harrier on this plane. It was a bit different from what I had seen before. Most 3D planes, you keep anywhere from 30 to 45 degrees of elevator pulled, and work the plane from there. The EF Edge needs almost no elevator to hold steady, and Gator was moving from about 1/2 of my throw to almost centered, faster than I could keep up with. The plane was all but motionless in the sky, but the elevator was moving to keep it there. My Mini, Sledge, Sig Ultimate, and even the TT Fun Tigers required the elevator to be all but pinned at 45 degrees to hold an elevator. I just didn't get it.
Why is the EF different? I dunno. Before I sold it, I was flying it better, and all but backed out of my deal to sell. A week after letting it go, I borrowed it for a demo this past Saturday, and again had trouble in a harrier. It just doesn't suit me. Is is better or worse than anything else? No, just different. Other planes are easier for me to harrier. Better, worse, different, or just easier, you decide. I will say also, I've never seen a plane knife edge like the EF Edge. That is unreal KE performance. If I could consistently harrier it, I would still own it.
Personally, Chris is a hell of a guy. I've talked to him a couple of times, and even complained to him when my gear broke. Everytime, he has taken care of all questions with patience. He also replaced my gear sight unseen.
The EF Edge is a quality level in ARFs I've not seen before. If every plane Chris puts out is that good, he will become a very wealthy man, and deservedly so. I'll support him when I can, but that doesn't change the fact that I decided that the EF Edge wasn't what I was looking for. To date, only the Mini 3D has been 100% what I wanted or expected from a plane. Some will say I'm a moron for liking the Mini so much, but it has yet to disappoint me in a single way, except the color.
I gave up on the Edge, but not Chris or Extreme Flight RC.
