Scott Stoops has delivered another outstanding Edge 540 design, this time in 74" wingspan for 26-35cc gas or 6S-8S Electric power, or even 1.50-2.10 glow.
This Edge takes its styling cues from the awesome pylon racing Edges of the last few seasons, but its aerodynamics are optimized for aerobatics and post-stall 3D flight. All of the features pilots have come to expect a Stoops design: low coupling, excellent harrier, crisp precision - they are all here in a fantastic looking and easy-to-assemble package.
The Edge uses 4 full size metal gear servos, plus a throttle servo if needed. A second elevator servo may also be installed to balance a very heavy petrol engine. All ball-link hardware is included, along with carbon landing gear attached to a fiberglass/carbon reinforced plate, wing bags, genuine ultracote covering, carbon wing tube, locking hatch latch, carbon-reinforced fuselage, aluminium axles, carbon tail wheel, and more.
For IC power, the 74" Edge is set up for the DLE-30 engine, and includes a firewall-drilling template for that engine and uses the standoffs included with the latest version of the DLE-30 engine. If you are not using a DLE-30, you will have to supply the correct length standoffs and drill your firewall accordingly for your particular engine.
We recommend the DLE-30 Rear-Carb engine for this aircraft.
