Extreme Flight Edge 540T-EXP
The second release in the EXP series, the Edge 540T features the same ultra-high quality construction, features and performance that have made the Extra 300 EXP a "must have" for the legions of 3D and aerobatic pilots out there.
Every bit as aggressive and nimble as the Extra, the Edge is rock solid in high alpha attitudes and may very well be the easiest plane to harrier in existence. Aggressive knife edge spins, tumbles, waterfalls, walls and heart attacks are all well within the Edge's wide flight envelope. Flip the rate switches to low and the Edge will perform beautiful precision aerobatic maneuvers and make a great sport flyer for pilots who have not yet entered the realm of 3D flight.
The Edge is packed with unique features like carbon reinforced fuselage assembly, G10 composite reinforced landing gear mounting structure, carbon fiber wing tube, carbon fiber landing gear, carbon fiber micro tailwheel assembly, fiberglass cowl and wheel pants, a set of side force generators, 2 gorgeous high visibility Ultracote color schemes and a complete decal set. The Edge can easily be assembled in a single evening by an experienced modeler.
