Edge 540T from HobbyKing


The HobbyKing® ™ Edge 540T blurs the line between foam and light plywood 3D airframes. Featuring a fully built-up fuselage and incorporating a light plywood framework covered with EPP foam, this Edge 540T is superlight for a model of its size. The combination of materials offers an ultra-light yet rigid airframe that is full bodied like a real airframe. Its rounded cowl, curved canopy, air-foiled stabilizers and smooth lines of the fuse really give this model a scale look.

The 540T's large control surfaces offer a huge amount of deflection thanks to the servo arm extensions. This combined with the ultra-light airframe allows for anything from lively sport flying to all-out extreme 3D; prop hanging, spins, tumbles and harriers are all well within this model's repertoire.

The 540T is outfitted with high quality hardware including carbon fiber landing gear and  plastic wheels with foam tires. No need to upgrade the hardware on this model, quality is already included.

The HobbyKing® ™ Edge 540T couldn't be easier to build with its bolt-on wings, pre-installed servo mount plates and magnetic canopy. Even the cowl clips on and off without the need for glue/screws. Assembly is simple, all you will need to do is hinge the control surfaces, glue in your horizontal/vertical stabilizers, attach the tail wheel mount and install your electronics.

This is one unique and beautiful model with flight characteristics to match. From sport flying to extreme 3D, the Edge 540T can handle it all.

• Fully built-up EPP/light plywood constructed fuselage
