3dhs 48" Edge 540 Demonstrator
The Demonstrator features many forward thinking ideas and concepts that make it a truly unique model among the current ARF offerings. It features an amazing color scheme designed by Arron Bates that takes full advantage of the new photo-realistic print technology we have pioneered. Carbon ghost flames, pinstripes and fades that are reminiscent of a custom painted hotrod are all part of what may be the coolest ARF color scheme ever produced! And just wait until you pull the canopy off and look inside! Carbon fiber everywhere! A large portion of the interior is made from carbon fiber laminated plywood and features carbon fiber longerons, carbon fiber laminated wing root, carbon fiber wing tube, stab tube, main gear, tailwheel and a specially painted carbon fiber spinner to match the color scheme. If you want a model that truly represents the pinnacle of ARF technology and flight performance and is sure to turn heads at the flying field, the 3DHS Demonstrator EDGE 540 is the one for you!
The Edge 540 is a legendary full scale aerobatic aircraft, unique for its distinctive straight leading edge wing. Nothing else looks like an Edge in the air. The wing design, however, is not just for looks. The straight leading edge and forward swept trailing edge give the wing distinctive flight characteristics in 3D flight. You'll notice easier, more instinctive, and smoother harrier flights, as harrier turns, even tight ones, require less compensation from other controls. The result is a big friendly airplane that you can toss around down low with total confidence.
The Edge is also long, with an advanced tail design that gives excellent tracking. The Edge is capable of extremely precise flight and has a wide speed range. Landings with the Edge are no-drama, it just floats in slowly and predictably.
The much loved 48" Edge is now available in the popular Demonstrator scheme! Updates include an awesome, rich-colored printed scheme, double ball link hardware, carbon fiber landing gear and carbon fiber laminate structure.
The 48" Edge 540 developed by Scott Stoops delivers the ultimate 3d bang for your buck. A serious 48" 3D aircraft capable of using up to 700 watts of power, the 48" is also a perfect first balsa 3D plane. It offers extremely stable 3D flight, precise handling, excellent tumbling and spinning performance, and the durability you need to perfect your 3D skills.
The 48" Edge uses a carbon wing tube, giving you the convenince of removable wings for easy transport.
