Great Planes ElectriFly Edge 540T ARF

The pinnacle in a mid-sized electric aerobat.

The 50" class is an exciting new category of electric aircraft, and the Edge 540T is sure to be a standout! Slightly smaller than traditional .40 glow models, 50" class planes typically boast many sophisticated features that discriminating pilots look for in an aerobatic ARF — and until now virtually all 50" class machines were produced by exclusive manufacturers. That's all about to change with the Edge 540T, a spirited performer that takes full advantage of advanced engineering and pre-fabrication to instantly become a bold, new way to fly!
