For immediate release:
**GREAT PLANES ELECTRIFLY EDGE 540T 50″ CLASS EP ARF AEROBAT
The pinnacle in a 50″ Class EP Aerobat ARF!
The 50″ class is an exciting new category of electric aircraft and the Edge 540T is sure to be a standout! Slightly smaller than traditional .40 glow models, 50″ class planes typically boast many sophisticated features that discriminating pilots look for in an aerobatic ARF and, until now, virtually all 50″ class machines were produced by exclusive manufacturers. That’s all about to change with the Edge 540T, the first in the E-Performance Series and a spirited performer that takes full advantage of advanced engineering and pre-fabrication to instantly become a leader in this bold new market. No cutting corners here! Only the finest materials – carbon fiber, hand-selected woods and lightweight fiberglass have been used. Airfoiled control surfaces, pre-hinged ailerons and rudder along with a preinstalled motor box with cowl ring are just some of the examples of the attention to detail found on this Edge! For even sharper style and performance, carbon fiber wheel pants and landing gear are available separately.
- This airplane is designed for unlimited performance with the RimFire 42-50-800 out-runner brushless motor. The motor box is preinstalled with blind nuts, providing perfect spacing for the spinner backplate without measuring.
- The wing tube joiner is made of ultra-modern carbon fiber material. It aligns the wing automatically and allows for easy transport to and from the field.
- Fiberglass gives the cowl a quality appearance – and the cowl ring and magnets are pre-glued and factory-aligned so the motor can be bolted on without gluing or measuring.
- The self-aligning wheel pants and landing gear legs are made of lightweight fiberglass. Low profile axles eliminate bulky bolts and give the wheel pants a super-clean look.
Double-beveled control surfaces allow for precision tracking with minimum throws. Maxing out the throws delivers all the agility needed for executing extreme 3D maneuvers.
