Default RE: New Seagull Edge 540 "68

I've flown mine about 8 times so far. I set the CG at 100mm and it's pretty much tail heavy. The elevator was extremely sensitive in this condition, had to dial them way back. Ailerons were sensitive too and had to reduce them to barely moving.

Once I get the feel of this type of plane I will start increasing the throws. Magnum 1.08 for power, could use more. Doesn't have the vertical I'd like. Will swap some different props out.

Takeoffs and landings are a dream, tracks straight even in crosswind. Landings are very smooth, no tendency to stall so far but I'm not slowing it down that much. Add power slowly on go arounds or the plane will be knife edge 3 feet off the runway, very exciting !!!

All in all so far I love the way the plane flies, it is the prettiest of all this type aircraft and the Seagull color scheme has yet to be beat.
