Edge 88", ARF kit
If aggressive 3D aerobatic flying is your passion, then the new Extreme Flight RC 50cc Edge 540T is the airframe you've been waiting for. Long heralded as the ultimate 3D platform, the Edge series of aircraft are known for their unmatched stability in high alpha flight and their aggressive gyroscopic tumbling maneuvers.
The 540T variant features a large 2 place canopy which places the tallest point of the fuselage closer to the center of gravity which results in improved knife edge performance over the single seat variant.
The Extreme Flight Edge 540T builds on this stellar reputation, offering unmatched flight performance and the quality construction and attention to detail that you've come to expect from an Extreme Flight product.
Available in 2 striking Ultracote color schemes with contrasting bottom, the Edge is a study in modern interlocking laser cut construction techniques, yielding a light weight yet durable airframe.
Aluminum angle landing gear mounts withstand season after season of harrier landings (and those not so perfect "normal" landings). Carbon fiber wing and stab tubes are stock equipment as is a carbon fiber tailwheel assembly.
Main gear are aluminum, and the cowl and wheel pants are fiberglass and finished in a high gloss paint job. Dual truss composite control horns, Dubro ball links, and titanium turnbuckle pushrods round out the completely useable hardware package (no cheap throw away junk hardware included!).
Just like all of our 50cc aircraft, the Edge fuselage has a built in pipe tunnel to allow easy installation of a tuned pipe or canister muffler. Now including larger EXP elevators and Side Force Generators!
Also included is a set of wing and stab bags and a canopy cover.
When you consider the performance and quality of an Extreme Flight airframe as well as the superior hardware and included accessories (not to mention after the sale support and replacement parts availability) you begin to see what a great value a purchase from Extreme Flight RC represents.
