Default Giant Scale Planes 80" Edge ARC

Anyone know anything more about these than is on thier website?

Do or have any of you owned one?

If the plane is ARC then any construction flaws that cause the plane to come apart in mid air is the fault of the purchaser. If the plane is not flying true then it is GSP. I will say the guy doens't support you after the sale but the planes seem to be built true but glue does need to be added. I have the ARF Edge and will be flying it in a month or two I have seen a couple of other GSP's and they fly good if they are assembled true.

Default giant scale planes

Hey there,
Those GSP planes,is a looks good from my house plane.
I went to the shop not much to look at..We ended up bying a Decathalon because the price was a deal(now I know why)All the glue joints need to be done over,most of the stringers either fell off or were about to. I would not recommend these planes.But thats my 2cents

I've seen one crash too, three, or whatever the count is..... I may have a chance to see another one be fore long.... You get what you pay for and the price is less than what a plane should cost. There is a reason.

A better value and a much better airframe then any of the **** that that guy puts out is the RC America line of planes. These are available from Don's Hobbies. They make an 80" extra and an 80" Cap - similiar to the midwest kits in arc form with airfoiled tail surfaces. I can't say that I've seen a GiantScalePlanes fly because it seems like they don't. They sure do crash pretty good though. If you buy one of the GSP planes make sure you have a video camera for the first "flight".
take care,
Jon
