Edge540 from Tower Hobby

Unread post by retiredVTT » Tue Nov 24, 2020 9:50 pm

This is an ARF from TH in the form of a Edge540.
Has a "one piece" wingspan in the 61" range and is spec'ed for a 4S Lipo and a Rimfire 32 size motor....which means I should try a 5S pack with a BadAss motor.

Some interesting features....the ailerons and rudder came already hinged with C/A hinges and the control rod "sleeves" where already in place. It has separate elevator control rods, tied together with wheel collars to a single servo. Price was in the US$129.00 range with a US$30.00 shipping fee back in April; bit more now.
