Like its full-size counterpart in ultra-exciting air racing, the easy-to-assemble Tower Hobbies Edge 540 ARF excels at outrageous aerobatics. Adding to its crowd-pleasing performance, the all-wood main structures and painted, hand-laid fiberglass cowl and wheel pants sport an eye-catching, factory-applied trim scheme. Take a flight on the wild side with the Edge 540...an exceptional value in edge-of-your-seat aerobatics.
The Zivko Edge 540 manufactured by Zivko Aeronautics is a highly aerobatic aircraft. Capable of a 420 degree per second roll rate and a 3,700 foot per minute climb rate, it has been flown to victory on the international Unlimited aerobatics circuit several times since the mid-1990s. A tandem-seat version is sold as the Edge 540T.
The Zivko Edge 540 is the most common aircraft used in the Red Bull Air Race World Series.
