I am building this from printed plans. This does take a bit more effort to accurately trace, mark, and cut the most of the other builds I have done.

Just be aware even the width of the pen you use makes a differency in accuracy when scratch building this one.

Its very fun and busy build just plan to take more time then normal builds. This is not a two day build as it is extremely well designed and structurally sound.

Hi
Could I attempt to make it out of light cardboard and which power pack does it use
Thanks
I think you could make it out of cardboard but foamboard or depron would be better choice. I would not recommend the Edge as your first build. The Edge is an advanced plane, tougher to build and fly. You would be better off to start with a trainer plane. The Storch or Bushwhacker would be a better choice to start with.
