This is the Easy Edge designed my @Headbang . I build the wing sometime last year, (5 point reduction) but had never gotten around to finishing the build.

This challenge seemed to be the perfect excuse to finish it off! :D Here is the final product:

A big thanks to @Grifflyer for 3D printing the firewall for me! (y):D
I got it all built and the wiring done today, and was set on flying it, even though it was windy. So I took it out, and I’m impressed! It penetrates the wind great and does inverted amazing. (y)
As far as the build goes, I give it this rating:

As far as flying it goes, I’d give it this rating:

I have flown several different 3D planes so it wasn’t that hard for me, but as someone’s first 3D plane I can see how it might be difficult. But it’s a solid airframe and if they dial in some low rates and expo, it would be the perfect entry into 3D flying! :)
Here's the maiden flight video:

Two more builds in the next 9 days! I decided to wait till after build-ruary to finish the monster edge since that's a bit on the ambitious siae to finish in such a short time. I'm going to do the MS Corsair instead. I have the ft pietenpol I cut out last year but never built so I think that will be my final and fourth entry.
