The 40" EPP Edge is the next offering in a our line of full-fuse EPP aircraft. Built at the world's premier EPP production facility, the 40" Edge employs built up EPP foam structure with a carbon backbone, carbon stiffening in the wings, fuse, and tail, SFG's - which all combine to give superb flight performance and serious durability.
The Edge uses the most common sizes of battery and servos so you probably already have most of the necessary equipment. A magnetic top hatch makes battery changes quick and easy for lots of uninterrupted flying - and considering what a superb high performance 3D practice plane this is, you will want to fly nonstop.
The Edge is extra rugged, the EPP foam and carbon backbone technology mean you can survive most hard crashes with little or no repair work to do. Spring steel landing gear help soak up the hard hits too, while large free rolling wheels allow use from a variety of surfaces.
The Edge is recommended for use with our Omega 72g, 1100KV motor for a light setup or our Omega 103g 1030KV motor for a more powerful setup. Both setups using a 45-55Amp ESC and 4 X Hitec HS-65MG servos. As rugged as this airframe is, you will want metal servo gears so that the servos are rugged too. A 3S 1200-1500mah lipo is recommended. Thick and thin regular CA glue is recommended for assembly. Welder's glue is used to repair the EPP skin.
Either as your next step up from flat EPP foam planes, a fantastic practice plane, or your no-worries go-to hardcore aerobatics plane. The Edge delivers high energy, hardcore 3D ability with good speed and handling in gusty winds. You will want the Edge in your hanger along with our other EPP aircraft.
