very good flying plane. with 6S 5000 its necessary to make some small modifications to place the battery in the right position for the correct Center of gravitation.Super Modell und sehr gnstig .Leider muss man viel nacharbeiten bis alles passt.
Der Akku passt nicht in die Aufnahme ,diese ist zu weit vorn ,also Abtrennung raus
und den Akku etwa 8-10cm nach hinten dann stimmt der Schwerpunkt. Fliege die
Edge mit 6S 6000mAh 35c (etwa 800g), 8Minuten bei Volllast. Kann dieses Modell
fr diesen Preis nur empfehlen.
Well Mr HK and fell ow HK pilots, This EPO Edge 540 is:
The easiest build with positive fit of all control services ( except for misalignment of tailplane rod requiring my EPO expert and best mate Steve to perform open heart)
CG obtained easily no extra weight required
Best maiden flight ever for me...one click of down trim
Vertical half throttle
Inverted hands free tweet throttle
She floats with low throttle
First landing good gor me was a bit heavy...under cart up for it
Taxis a treat
Make due you secure receiver,,,,,mine was not...I think mine moved with aerial touching alloy spar.....lost total control...went in low noise at 45* not pretty
Mingus 671. Check video
I will be ordering a new one sooo
