    Giant Edge and MVVS 2.15

    Ok I decided to go with MVVS 2.15. It seems the reasonable more displacement at a given weight. Don't see going to ZDZ 40 or anything like that even though weight is the same. I have enclosed a pic of where I am at. As you can see the fuselage and wing configuration is different than those previously posted. OMP has gone to a styrofoam fue (yippee) and no center wing section. I am sort of in a holding pattern. Going to order a CF wing tube. I don't have my MVVS 2.15. Hopeing someone (OMP?) can tell me if the stock cutouts will work for mounting the MVVS. That way I could go ahead with the fuselage before I get the engine.

    Also would the new DS8611 would be enough torque to use one on elevator. It's 260 oz torque at 6V. I have an excellent setup configuration that would put one elevator on one side of the servo and the other on the opposite side. That would save me at least 2 oz on the tail. I'm not sure how this balances out with MVVS on front. I will be using LIPOs for ignition and Rx/servo power (with regulators)
    The man with the green box. Now what does this switch do?

    The stock cutout is for an OS 1.60 which I believe is 2" wide. You can easily tailor this to whatever engine width you need and the material to do this is included int he kit. That new JR servo would be MORE than enough for this elevator.

    Here is where I am at

    From the previous well detailed threads I have read that made me buy this been updated a bit. There is no center wing and the fuselage main fram is foam, saving a lot of cutting.
