FMS FMM066PBLU Airplane (Discontinued) PNP

This item is discontinued but parts are still available in the Parts List below.
  • Edge 540, PNP, 1300mm

    The Zivko Edge 540 manufactured by Zivko Aeronautics is a highly aerobatic aircraft . Capable of a 420 degree per second roll rate and a 3,700 foot per minute climb rate, it has been flown to victory on the international Unlimited aerobatics circuit several times since the mid-1990s. A tandem-seat version is sold as theEdge 540T. The Zivko Edge 540 is the most common aircraft used in the Red Bull Air Race World Series – in fact all champions of the World Series have flown this aircraft

    The new Edge 540 is the best plane FMS has engineered to date in its line of aerobatic models. The performance this plane delivers on 4s power is just amazing! Build a scale model that has the performance envelope of this kit is nearly unheard of in this size plane. It is happy wide open eating up the sky or in high alpha flight hanging on the propeller. At high speed, tracking is predictable and literally flies like it is on rails, just point it where you want it to go and she goes with no complaint. We found no bad characteristics even with very hard control inputs in hard banks. The new composite wing structure is very ridged and it shows in high G turns and dive pull outs. Simple pull back on the throttle and the 540 treats you with tons of lift with NO tip stalls or washout propagation as experienced in other planes in this size. Doing hovering, waterfalls, and harriers are delightfully fun.

    The new 17 g digital servos worked flawlessly, providing precise control even under very high load. Their ability to center precisely even after hard high load maneuvers was right on par with servos at a much higher price point. The new “Gold” 760Kv motor and 60A ESC combination performed flawlessly.
