Edge 540 from Tower Hobbies

Details

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.

Features:

  • Fly loops, rolls, knife edge, stall turns, and other exciting maneuvers.
  • Low parts count – assembles in as little as 8-12 hours.
  • 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.
  • Large, easy-to-remove canopy for quick access to on-board gear and LiPo battery.
  • Pre-hinged ailerons and self-aligning tail surfaces reduce assembly time.
  • Designed in the USA.
