HobbyKing® ™ Edge 540 V3 (Red/Silver) 3D 1200mm (ARF)
HobbyKing® ™ Edge 540 V3 (Red/Silver) 3D 1200mm (ARF)

The Edge 540 V3 has to be one of the best looking race & performance planes ever built but make no mistake, the HobbyKing® ™ Edge has been designed with one thing in mind, extreme 3D aerobatics!

The quality of this Edge is simply as good as it gets, the airframe has been constructed to keep the flying weight minimal but strong enough to take the punishment of extreme aerobatics, the superb quality covering has been expertly applied and for the final touch, the cowl, canopy and wheel pants are finished in a deep gloss paint. The hardware is excellent & also chosen to keep flying weight to an absolute minimum and of course the model features plug in wing & CF wing tube as you would expect for easy transportation.

The HobbyKing® ™ Edge 540 V3 performs every inch as good as it looks, naturaly it makes for a great sport plane but it would be fair to say that hardcore 3D is what the Edge has been designed for. The precision of the airframe, stunning looks, top line quality and amazing feather weight specs make the Edge 540 V3 the must have plane for all aerobatic and 3D pilots!

I would also like to now if this plane can fit a longer motor than SK3 3536, lets say SK3 3542 or 3548. Could i.e. the 3548 be mountet behind this planes motor mount (inside the 'cage')? Don't mind the weight, thats another story I would like to care for myself.

Definately a step for HK in balsa planes, ive bought alot of HK planes and this is by far the best quality one ive seen to date, i rate this build quality up there with some of my Euro and US branded models. The proof is alsways in the flying and i hope to maiden it this coming sunday.

Hi Chaps

Got my kit few days ago, build went perfectly fine, very good instructions, good quality parts and beautiful looking plane. One thing to pay atention to, elevator is extremly fragile, mine just broke in half during maiden i was lucky enough to still have control over it enough to make the emergency landing.I did rebuild it and added a bit extra thicker balsa in the elevator....Oh yea i flew this on 4S 2200, 1000KV Turnigy Aerodrive, 40 amp esc and turnigy metal gear servos, Its absolutely balistic on this set up will have to go back down on 3s for normal flying.
