Edge 540T from PAU

Details

PAU has added the Edge 540T to the already very successful Edge 540 line up. The T version of the Edge 540 is the two-seat model: while none of us plan to sit in the aircraft, this version of the plane provides an increased side area which in turn improves knife edge flight. Many also prefer this version for its aesthetic attributes.

  • The fuselage is now wider and taller, which allows the all-in-cowl installation of the DA-120. This new fuse design is also as close to scale as possible.
  • The wings have been reinforced yet again with a generous dose of carbon fiber in order to withstand the ever more demanding maneuvers of today’s aggressive freestyle flying.
  • Slightly enlarged aileron size allows for faster roll rates in 3D flying, without acting as airbrakes when high rate ailerons are applied.
  •  A new all carbon fiber tail wheel assembly is more reliable, and lighter than the previous versions.

What makes our Edge fly better? Well for starters, take a look at the generous wing area and overall weight. With such low wing loading and proven airfoil, our Edge 540 will groove through any aerobatic sequence while still being feather light on the controls for outstanding 3D performance. The vertical stabilizer and rudder design, along with horizontal stabilizer placement, virtually eliminates any roll-pitch coupling. When it comes to high-alpha maneuvers, nothing else even comes close.

PAU also has done much of the time consuming work for you, such as pre-hinged (not glued) control surfaces, a pre-installed/pre-marked firewall for engine placement, pre-set cowl with internal cowl ring hiding cowl screws, pre-drilled surfaces so your hardware just drops in; and that is just the start! Our Edge 540 also comes with a complete set of high quality hardware. If you are tired of replacing lower quality hardware found in other ARF’s, or surprisingly having to purchase the hardware separately, take a look at what’s in our box: Titanium push rods and PAU aluminum horns with dressed steel posts. We’ve also included popular and proven Dubro accessories that work, such as fuel tanks, pull-pull set, and heavy-duty ball links.
