This Edge 540 is superbly built & covered and captures the lines of the Edge 540 very nicely. It is very light which coupled with the generous size control surfaces mades this Edge an ideal 3D model, likewise with less throws it is an ideal sport flyer.
This Edge comes with a strong motor mount as it is designed for either electric or glow power, for EP you will need at least a 400w set up and for glow, a 0.25 size engine. For 3D flying, you will need to use high torque digital sub micro servo's (not included), for sport flying, 9g servo's will be fine. This superb looking Edge features plug in wings onto a CF wing tube and a steerable tailwheel, making for a practical as well as good quality and good looking aerobatic model.
"0.25" balsa class models have been popular for years and it is no wonder, they are small enough to be practical and cheap to build, yet they fly like a much larger model, if you have never tried this class, this superb Edge 540 would be a great place to start!

Good plane but weak pack it arrived crushed and open (didn't notice until received) and the plane with some formers broken but reparable, the tube that goes inside the wings didn't arrive, I have to look for it in stores.Received my edge about a week a go. Went together with no problems, covering was not the greatest lots of seams to re seal. Wheel pants are white not black, no glow mount just electric, haven't had it out for a fly yet still winter up here in Canada, looks like it should fly alright will post when I get it airborn.I flew for the second time today, a verry smooth flight, durin a inverted cuban 8, verry slow, it broke both horizontal stabilazer, I don't know how I could land, when hit the ground because of the high descent ratio, it broke the engine mount. I'll fix it and reinforce it very well, but I see tha is a verry week plane. Teke care!the value in this planes was good. the only thing i noticed different was the coulors were lighter and more seethrough. mine was shipped from hongkong to australia. i ordered it in the christmas season so it toook 17. when it arrived it had a big dent in the box i opened it up and the left side of the fuselage was chrushed slightly, and the cowling was deformed. other than that the kit was in good condition. the manaul was suprisingly easy to use with picture and tips. overall it was a decent plane.After reading a negative review regarding the poor quality from one of bros there, I got worried as I purchase my plane a day before the post.
I am glad I got my in good condition and the quality is fantastic! Thanks HK!Be aware! HK sends now another kit, not the one, shown on the pictures. It's much heavier (1060g from the box) and of low qualityNachdem beim Jungfernflug das halbe Hoehenruder nur noch an der Folie hing konnte ich die Edge nur mit grosser Not ohne weiteren Schaden landen. Nach der Reparatur wars beim zweiten Flug dann entgueltig vorbei. Nach einem Turn kam sie ins Trudeln und lie sich nicht mehr abfangen. Das ist mir, mit einem 3D Flieger, noch nie passiert!? Schade ums Geld!There were following missing parts in my Edge:
- plywood motor mount
- wheel pants
- tail wheel
- accessories pack
- CA higes from the other aileron
I'm still waiting for the missing parts.Got mine, my landing gear and the wheel cap thingy is totally off from the pic!
My landing gear is not black as shown in the picture and the cap cupping the wheel if white! anyone else encounter this issue?
HOBBYKING...WHAT?!I have flown this plane 7 times now and I can do most 3D tricks. This plane hovers very easily! The kit is very good for the price and goes together very nicely. Watch the COG! The only complaint is the control rods provided for the rudder and elevator. They are too weak and bend.
I am using:
OS 750 EP engine - 300wats on 3S battery
14x7 prop for 3D
3S 2200mAh Turnigy Battery
Hitec HS65 servos
