A RimFire .32 brushless motor with 4S LiPo installs easily and provides clean, quiet, outstanding electric power.
If you prefer glow power, popular .46-.55 cubic inch 2-stroke engines or a .72 cubic inch 4-stroke provide an excellent thrust-to-weight ratio.
The hand-crafted cowl and wheel pants arrive painted to match the Edge 540's colorful trim scheme.
For precise maneuvers, each aileron is controlled by a dedicated servo and short, direct linkages.
The easy-to-remove canopy/hatch provides fast access to your radio gear, LiPo battery, or glow fuel tank.
The radio compartment allows easy installation of standard-size receivers and high-torque “mini” servos.
The Edge 540’s steerable tailwheel makes precise, predictable taxing easy.
