Light, strong, built-up wood airframe with factory-applied heat-shrink film covering.
Fiberglass cowl and wheel pants, painted to match the vibrant trim scheme.
One-piece wing mounts with two nylon bolts and removes easily for transportation.

Great aerobatic plane from Tower Hobbies
Review by Chris C. on 16 Sep 2019review stating Great aerobatic plane from Tower Hobbies
I have bought several ARFs from Tower Hobbies since 1976 including Sport,Vista BL, Vista Grande, etc. I was looking for all purpose aerobatic plane, and I was very glad that I purchased Edge 540. I like the overall color scheme and the flame pattern, and the workmanship was amazing. Aluminum main landing gear was strong enough to handle hard landings, and tail dragger worked fine. I used Rimfire .32 with ESC 70A and 4S 4000 LiPo, and it flew very fast at full throttle. It also had very stable flight characteristics even at low throttle. I like this airplane so much so that I am going to buy another one.

Review by Freshly F. on 6 Mar 2020review stating Amazing model and great quality.
A really nice arf for either glow or electric setups. Very easy to build and comes with detailed instructions. The only negative I have is that after buying two of these models I have found that they are either missing parts or they are no longer provided with the kit even tho they show it in the instructions and in the pictures. The part I’m missing is the throttle linkage tube. Neither kit out of my two had one. And there is now only one throttle linkage support instead of the pictured and listed 3. I also did not find any parts for connecting the throttle linkage to my servo. So sadly I’ll have to go buy one of those as well. Otherwise I really enjoy these models.

Review by Ggh X. on 20 Apr 2020review stating Edge 540 Sport Aerobatic
VERY pleased with the quality and construction of this plane, flight characteristic evaluations are pending but maiden flight shows very promising flight performance...changing motors (to Rimfire) as my initial motor has a defective shaft, but initial flight was awesome.
