The 92″ Edge 540 from 3DHobbyShop is a scale 3D, precision, and sport aircraft for 50-60CC gas engines and 12S electric power setups.
The Edge 540 is a dominant full-scale aerobatic and racing aircraft. Flown by world aerobatic champions and top airshow pilots, it has extreme capabilities thanks to its unique wing design and Lycoming 540 cubic-inch engine.
The 3DHobbyShop model captures all of that performance and more. Our Edge 540 is a versatile and fun aircraft, with all of the characteristics you are looking for. Firstly, it has excellent sport handling characteristics, with easy landings and smooth flight. Secondly, it is very precise, with excellent tracking for long straight flight lines as well as precise point rolling maneuver and snaps. Thirdly, it is a 3d monster, featuring rock-solid harrier both upright and inverted, minimal coupling, excellent pitch authority for walls and waterfall-based maneuvers, and excellent low-speed rudder authority for radical rotation.
While the Edge works very well on 50-55cc engines with good speed and pullout from hover, we recommend the amazing DA-60 engine as a perfect match. With the DA-60 onboard, the Edge has stunning vertical performance. Because of its large control surfaces and wide speed range, we recommend only the best servos for the Edge. Minimally, you will need a digital metal gear servo with at least 250 oz-inches of torque for each of the 5 servo locations. For best performance, 290 or more oz-inches of torque is recommended. The 333 oz-in Hitec 7955-TG or 7954SH are excellent choices. For the best possible performance, consider the MKS HV777 or HBL380 Brushless servo.
3DHS TEST PILOT JOE SMITH WRITES ABOUT THE 92″ EDGE:
“Over the past few months of flying the 92” Edge at events and for promotional videos, I have received this question many times, “what sets this plane apart from all of the others?” I personally feel that this planes blend of both precision and 3D aerobatics is superior to anything I have had the chance to fly in the past. This Edge draws very clean lines but slows to a craw to provide an incredibly stable platform for 3D flying. The control authority of all of the surfaces are matched very well to each other which provides a very solid feel all around. The rolling harrier has always been my favorite maneuver and this plane performs them so effortlessly. No matter the angle of attack, it is never a struggle to keep this plane rolling. The very consistent roll rate through the many different attitudes really makes it enjoyable to practice and perfect the rolling harrier with this airframe.”
