Carbon fiber, hand-selected woods and lightweight fiberglass combine to create an ARF that rivals the most exclusive aerobatic models on the market. Airfoiled control surfaces, pre-hinged ailerons and rudder and a pre-installed motor box with cowl ring are just some of the examples of the attention to detail and pre-fabrication you'll find on this Edge 540T. No expense has been spared in engineering a spirited performer that even the most discriminating pilot will appreciate. Extensive preassembly and pre-covering in genuine MonoKote film accelerates box-to-flight line time to just a few hours.
