Description

41" Edge 540

The 41 Edge is designed to be a great first balsa aerobatic aircraft. Inexpensive but high-quality, the Edge will impress you with its simple and quick assembly, honest and forgiving flight characteristics, and extremely high performance. Offering both precision aerobatics such as loops, rolls, knife-edge flight, snap rolls of all types, and all types of spins, as well as hardcore 3D with stable upright harrier, easy inverted harrier, harrier rolling, high-alpha knife-edge, hovering and torque-rolling, the Edge does it all with just a flip of the rates switch.


Removable wings make for easy transport while the stiff carbon wing tube withstands the very high G-loading of extreme aerobatics. Spring-steel wire landing gear means a rough landing won't cause damage and won't send you home for repairs - you can keep flying and enjoying!

A Fabulous Bargain!
  Okay, I'm a geezer. Flown a lot of planes over the past forty years and this one is an absolute sweetheart, period. I just ordered another, "in case," but my first one remains quite pristine. It's just too good to let me bend it. Main interest is aerobatic flying but with this airplane I can dabble in 3D with confidence. Flies way bigger than it is. TP

Love It!
  I just maidened my Edge 540 41" and I'm in love. The plane assembled very easy and quickly without any confusion with the aid of the videos. Using the Recommended motor, a thunderbird 54, and 4 HS-56HB servos paired with a ThunderPower 2700 G8 Pro-Lite battery I used 1100mah at 5 minutes. I'm quite impressed with the stable flying and hovering properties of this plane. It makes my Sukhoi 29mm feel like a brick in the air. Anyone new to 3d, I highly recommend this plane. This thing hover's at half throttle and harriers closer to 25%. It's light and well designed. Didn't even take a bounce on the landing as the low speed characteristics are trainer like.

LIGHT AND FLOATY BEAST!
  THIS PLANE WAS A BREEZE TO BUILD AND A BLAST TO FLY!! I HAVE BEEN FLYING FOAMIES AND DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS MISSING. NOW I HAVE A PLANE THAT IS FAR MORE POWERFUL THAN THE ONES I HAVE FLOWN AND LIGHTER!! THIS THING HOVERS FOR DAYS AND THE ROLL RATES ARE PHENOMENAL! THE KNIFE EDGE MIGHT AS WELL BE COMPUTER PROGRAMED BECAUSE IT IS EFFORTLESS!!!!!! LOVE MY 3DHS EDGE 540!!

  This plane is beautiful. I could not be more happy with it. The quality of construction for the price is unbelievable. The covering was done perfect and on top of all that , It fly's like a dream. I will be buying more planes from 3DHS for sure.

Love the 'Huck
  I've completed 7 flights on my 'Huck now, and I've gotta say it's a great little plane. I'm "new" to 3D flying, but this plane makes me look like a pro doing knife-edge, inverted, and lomcevaks. I haven't been able to hover yet, but that's my next challenge to tackle!

Perfect first aerobatic/3D plane!
  This was my first true aerobatic/3D plane and my first balsa ARF, and I must say it couldn't have worked out better! Assembly is a breeze thanks to the build videos. Trimming the plane equally simple. On low rates it's very easy to fly. On high rates I could do wild aerobatics. I still have a lot to learn, but this little plane is a joy to learn on. If you're looking for an inexpensive, high quality plane with lots of potential as a next step after a sport plane, this is the plane!

Excellent electric, wow!
  Just had my maiden flight, and this plane ROCKS! Impressive quality right out of the box. Super easy to put together, about 5 hours total. Great instructions! With HS-65s, Park 480 and 2200mah lipo, it CG'ed just perfect and was RTF at 2 lbs even. First flight was amazing, it lept off the ground and went vertical like a rocket. Roll rate is outrageous! Effortless spins, lomcevaks, blenders, etc. Superb flying characteristics!. Way to go 3DHS, awesome plane!

I'm so glad!
  I am so glad I purchased this plane! For a "beginner" 3D airplane, it sure is great. I would go with their recommended motor, as mine (Scorpion SII-3008-1090) is too large to fit the cowl properly. A deal like this makes me think I'll never fly foam again!
