The air show ace is now a striking electric!


An all-electric version of the popular Edge 540 aerobat is finally here!  The looks are realistic and the performance can be anything a pilot wants.  With low throws, it’s a fun sport flier – stable and forgiving at low speeds.  Dial up the throws and give it more power and the Edge 540 becomes a precision pattern plane or exciting aerial adventure-seeker or extreme 3D thrill ride!  Perhaps best of all, it comes in a park flyer that’s sized right for easy transportation and small-field flying.  A low parts count and easy final assembly combine to make the electric Edge 540 ready for its first flight in as little as 4-6 hours.  External servo mounts simplify installation, with the added benefit of shorter linkages for faster, stronger response on demand.  An extensive, high-quality hardware package – including a spinner and adjustable servo linkages – comes with the Edge 540.  And – it’s expertly covered in MonoKote®!


  • The 2-piece wing design is a common convenience on larger airplanes but an unexpected extra on the Edge 540.  Wing panels slide onto a carbon fiber joiner tube and attach with a single screw.
  • A strong built-up mount is already in place for installing a RimFire motor.  Out-runner brushless power eliminates the need for a gear drive, which makes the Edge 540 lighter and less expensive to equip.
  • The trim scheme is distinctive, original and done in professionally applied MonoKote® film.  The fiberglass cowl, ABS wheel pants and aluminum gear are already painted and ready to install.
  • The cowl installs easily with powerful rare-earth magnets, leaving the plane’s bold, clean lines unmarked and intact.
  • No tools are required to access the roomy battery compartment.  Magnets make hatch removal and replacement easy.
