Wing Bags by Caroline

I flew it for the first time this weekend at the Show-Me R/C Extravaganza in Jefferson City, MO. They had 100 plus pilots and Carden birds were everywhere.

We had a very good showing of Carden aircraft all weekend and to top it off my new Edge flew great!! 

One click of down trim and that was it! I absolutly love it, the 40%er Fly's awesome and is a hovering/torque rolling machine.

Terry Boston built it for me (lucky for me he only lives 10 minutes away) and I covered it. 

Haven't flown it yet but hope to soon. Modeled by my 7 year old daughter Katie at Hamilton, Ohio Airport.

Hi Caroline and Dennis

It is a GREAT Kit and I hope the photos prove you don't have to buy some ultra expensive all composite kit to get a Kirby Chamblis scheme!!  

keith_sessios_40edge-chamblis-40.jpg (74434 bytes)

I did  all of the building, covering, and airbrushing on it.  Haven't flown it  yet, but am DYING to get it in the air.  Maybe the week after Toledo!!!
