The unique and quite brilliant Hobbyking® ™ Racer series has been developed with two things in mind....high performance and massive amounts of fun!
The good looking airframe is made from super tough EPO foam and is heavily re-inforced with CF rods, each version is nicely finished in an authentic color scheme. One of the first things you notice with this series is the nicely designed modular construction, the wings and horizontal stabilizer literally snap together making assembly and parts replacement simple and fast. No glue is required for assembly, the vertical stabilizer and tough under-carriage simply screw on and the servo's, high power motor and ESC are all pre-fitted. When you look around these brilliant models, you can see that they have been built for performance, not only are they fast...they are also superbly aerobatic! The large control surfaces for instance are fully hinged, the tail assembly has been designed to cope with high G, high speed aerobatic's, not to mention the odd less than perfect landing, the wheels are proper rubber and can cope with suprisingly rough grass strips and if you want to hand-launch, no problem! these brilliant racers fly out of your hand like a scolded cat!
All of the HobbyKing® ™ Racer Series offer breath-taking performance combined with great looks, toughness, a clever yet simple design and excellent quality construction, all at an affordable price. Great fun flown on their own and simply brilliant flown with your buddies, the HobbyKing® ™ Racers will keep you grinning all day long, just make sure you have plenty of Lipoly's to hand!

Great little flier with so (too?) much spare power!
1. The given GoG is not right... I needed a bit of lead in the cowl.
2. The statement
"Heavy Duty Undercarriage...capable of handling the roughest of strips"
is an absolute lie!! It's wire that will bend back on most grass field landings!
I think removing the wheel spats/pants & putting bigger wheels on is a must for grass landings! Even there, the wire might need to be replaced with thicker gauge.
??????. ?????????? ?? ???????????? ? ???????? ??????? ????????. ?? ?????? ????????? ????? ?????????. ?????? ??????. ??????? ?????????? ????????????.Speed is not a question here even on 3S but beware, it is extremely sensitive and requires a soft touch. It is not a beginner nor even for some experienced fliers. If it goes into the ground you can kiss it good-bye, I know!I have had quite a few experiences with this lovely high performance Edge 540, which is an amazing RC airplane. However I would not recommend this model to beginners, as it is a bit difficult to handle!
5 Crowns from me!hi all!
this is what i did with it:
flies difficult, not for beginners. overall dimensions are not very well thought of: wingarea versus speed versus lengt of the plane. it just seems off from the actual plane in real life. anyway it flies, but you really have to tweek a lot. I use 30pcnt throws on all surfaces.
A speed monster!
it's my funny racer (usually i use Hyperbibe). It's very precise and fast.
Not suggested for beginners.
It flyes with 2200mah 4S 35C Zippy CompactJ' ai commander cette avion et j' en suis trs content la structure est solide et bien faites et l 'avion semble sain.
J' ai vrifier et resserer toutes les vis de l' avion et renforcer tous les collages pour tre sur.
Il vole avec lipo 3s 1800 mah turnigy nanoteck 65c 130c mais le nez est trs lourd je dois reculer la lipo au max dans le compartiment. Je pense essayer une de mes 4s mais vu leurs poids au 4s je pense ajouter du poids dans la queue pour corriger ce nez trop lourd
What can you say, every one else has covered the build, the quality etc.
This is not a large aeroplane, it is sleek, it is very clean and on a 4s it is very very fast.
This means that it becomes even smaller very quickly. Didn't seem to get the tip stall or wing drop that others have, behaved very predictably at the stalling point and easily recovered. This is an adrenalin model for those days when you just have to be a sky vandal.
Beware the faux undercarriage, it can cope with a take-off, looks very nice in the air but on landing it just becomes an arrestor system and brakes. Unless you cant live without wheels I would just take it off, put some reinforcing tape on the bottom of the fuselage for belly landings and go with hand launch.
Oh, before I forget, ditch the spinner, it is very much out of balance and not that easy to rectify, the prop is ok but I would go with a better higher quality 7*6This thing is mental!!! love it!!!! but beware of weak under carriage, easily repaired with hot glue.EXCELLENT VALUE PLANE. WELL THOUGHT OF DESIGN. NO GLUE NEEDED, JUST CLICKS TOGETHER. I USED A 1300MAH THREE CELL NANO TECH WHICH HAD AMPLE POWER FOR FAST SPEEDS. AS WITH THE OTHER REVIEWS THE PLANE NEEDS TO FLY VERY FAST TO BE STABLE AND TO LAND FAST SO AS NOT TO STALL. BUT APART FROM THAT WELL WORTH THE MONEY. ITS ALSO A VERY NICE LOOKING PLANE. VERY QUICK DELIVERY THANKYOU HOBBYKING.
