Two great things happened to Nick Foster this past week.  #1 - He turned 16.  #2 - He saw the maiden flight of his new 40% Carden Edge 540.  I don't know which one he was more excited about #1 or #2.   GIANT THANKS to Wayne Matthews, Russell Reel, Ron Storer and especially Caroline and Dennis.

The plane is set up with a DA150, Pefa canister mufflers and a MSC prop.  The DB readings were unbelievably low.Russell rolled it out about a 100 feet and when it broke ground it looked like it was a home sick angel headed for the heavens.Russell kept saying "Sweet".

After reaching about 300 feet with about two clicks of down elevator and no other trim required, he started putting the plane through it's paces.As one teeny weeny itsy bitty Jamaican that flies would say OOOOOOOHHHHHHH! It looked sweet.

Once again you have outdone yourselves with another beautiful kit.

I just got it completely done and couldn't wait to send pic's.

It has a DA-150 and Hitec HS-5945 digital servos, two receivers and all the other normal goodies. Can't wait to fly it, maybe in the next two weeks.   Thank you for all the help and support.

Hi Bob, 

Attached are pics of 40% Edge #2. With this machine I went with the new 3-W150 "light case" engine. I am very pleased with the performance, totally burble free at any throttle setting! It may as well be an electric motor !

As you can see, your covering scheme was used again, but a negative from #1. Also attached is a picture of the nose cone I had to add to my trailer to haul the darn thing.

Regards, Kirk Jensen
