Dennis and Caroline
You know how many years  I've waited for the right plane? The last two years was the CAP 232 40% then my 40% Edge 540. The flying just keeps getting better. The next warm days I'll be flying the 330 Extra for this year. Well I thought I would send you a picture of my fun flights this weekend with the Edge.
ryan_mowery-09.jpg (28395 bytes) The Extra is ready and I gave my dad the CAP 232  He loves It. Thanks for all the help and, again the planes are the best I've ever flown, But I'm only 18 years old. Thanks again and also My dad for all the support. Thanks also to Brian Hueffmeier for the support for painting these models for me. I'm friends with Brian and my Dad goes out to Brian's and speaks with him daily on the phone
Regards Ryan Mowery

Hi Dennis and Caroline,
Here's a few pics of my 40% Edge. I flew it the first time on Thanksgiving day, which I must say dinner was a eat and run deal that day.

All it took was a two clicks of elevator and it was on a rail. With the DA 150 on KS cans and a 3W 31.5x14-8 carbon prop, it has tons of pulling power.

It has JR 8411's on elevator and ailerons, and 2 Futaba 5050's on the Surelink rudder setup.

I'm also glad I bought the Caroline wing and tail bags. They are the best in the business.

This was my first Carden, and it won't be the last.

Dear Dennis and Caroline
Here is a few pictures of my new 40% Edge 540.  I have 20 flights on so far. 3-D is nothing less than awesome.

Thanks for making such a great product, and all the help.  Now I know why they say nothing fly's like a CARDEN!

My son's name is Stephen, age 7 and my daughter Andrea is age 5. Stephen has been flying a trainer last year and the sim over these winter months. I come down stairs now and he say's, hey dad watch me hover the Edge. I have a 40% on the sim.  He may get a chance at my Edge this year, on the cord

Hi Dennis and Caroline

Here's a couple of pics of me and Joe Jesky flying his Edge at my house. Doing some snowblowing!

It was 19 degrees and 15mph winds.  Fun, but really cold

Talk with you later,

Hi Dennis and Caroline
Just flew my Edge today for the first time. It was Awesome. 2 clicks of right aileron and flew straight as an arrow. One thing I'd like to add, all you need is some kite string on a windy day this baby just hangs in the air! 
carl_ziegler_40edge_02.jpg (76103 bytes) I cut power and tried to put her in a stall and she just smiled and stayed pointed toward the wind like a wind sock.  It is a very nice airplane.  Can't wait to get more time on the engine so that I can really ring her out.  Thanks for all of your help:)

Sincerely, Carl P Ziegler
