This is my second Carden Edge and it is absolutely the best flying plane I've ever owned.  Hope the summer weather is great this year.

Hey Caroline & Dennis,
Just flew the new 40% Edge in Fayetteville over the weekend

April 10, 2002

Besides having to do some adjustments it flew great!! I can see many happy hours of flying time in the near future.
I drove down with a buddy to your facility last year and meet with you when I picked up the kit. See you at Joe Nall

Thanks again , Dave Garris  Banner Elk, NC.

Here are the pictures of my 540 being flown for the first time with Mike Sauls assisting. I only flew this plane once this day and still did not have all trimmed out but it  flew great. This one out of my three Carden aircraft flies the best !

Hi Dennis, I flew my 40% Edge last week and it is another great flying plane. Its one of the easiest landing planes I have ever flown and the 3D capabilities are awesome, it lets you get away with murder. Here are a few pics.
Thanks!!!  Doug Cunning

Hi Caroline and Dennis,

I finally took some pictures of my 40% Edge and thought I would send them  to you.  

doug_yaroch_40edge-2.jpg (30300 bytes) I sure am loving this plane!  She weighs in at 36 1/4pounds  and is awesome with the DA 150.
Thanks for everything!!

I have enclosed some pics of my new Edge 540.  The plane has about 25 flights and all I can say is that it's awesome.  I felt that the engine has broke in well so I decided to bring it down to the deck as you can see in the pictures..  

This plane is one of the easiest planes to hover and torque roll.

 I love the DA 150 engine---it has a lot of power.  It will pull it straight out of sight.  Anyway, the plane has JR 8411's, dual 945 receivers, and JR matchboxes.  This is a perfect combo.  I have not weighed it yet but it flies very well regardless of weightI can continue on and on about this plane but I think everyone knows how great they fly and do 3-D.

Dennis and Caroline, keep up the good work and thanks for the excellent wing bags---superb quality.

Thanks,  Joseph Puentes
