    The Zivko Edge 540 is a high-performance aerobatic aircraft popular in aerobatic competitions and airshows. Pilots have flown the Edge 540 to victory many times across the international aerobatic circuit.

    Arrows Hobby wanted to build an aerobatic aircraft with a simple structure and excellent performance to meet the interests of enthusiasts seeking the excitement of 3D aerobatics. The Edge 540 has been the first choice of many aerobatic hobbyists, and it has always been popular among many of the pilots and engineers at Arrows at home and abroad too.

    The superior performance of the 1300mm Edge 540 can easily complete high, medium and low altitude horizontal and vertical surface stunts. The striking orange paint scheme is highly visible to the benefit of novices and experts alike.

    • Ball-style linkage and embedded nylon hinge for precision control.
    • The symmetrical main wing installed with 0 incident angle and the super-sized control surfaces facilitate various aerobatics such as somersaults, rolls, hoists and inverted flying.

    This airplane is likely my newest favorite Edge! This airplane is just beautiful. I had a bit of a struggle getting the wing screws aligned but I do any many RC planes. I'm removing the included Vector module. Didn't really like the performance and the receivers that I'm using with my transmitter already have what I need. The 4S power is great and the plane move very well in the air. The rudder glued in very easily and the foam is a very nice rigid material that I really like. Can't wait to get this back in the air today!

    Great flying plane! It will fly as smooth as any plane and give it full throws and hold on its very responsive.  Only bad thing I have to say is getting the four wing bolts in mine was so tough I only got three installed. Hoping that after a few more flights it will loosen up enough to get the 4th one in!

    Arrow's Edge 540 1300mm PNP

    Durability

    Appearance

    Aircraft looks great when assembled and easy to see - nice job. Had four issues with assembly - all quality related. First, the wings and the horizontal stab holes for securing the two mentioned surface don't align. It took nearly 1.5 hours to remedy the problem - didn't want to damage the aircraft. Issue number two, one of the wires for the motor was not connected, neatly tucked away so you couldn't see it. The third issue and still un-resolved, waiting to hear back from Arrow (Bob), I can't get the brake to release on motor/ESC. Called Arrow, they said Bob would get back to me.... Believe me I tried numerous times to reprogram the ESC without any luck. The final issue (#4), the hub on the spinner fits so tight I need to cut it off to remove the back plate, so I can remove the cowl to get to the motor. Just ordered another spinner., hopefully Arrow will also cover this under warranty. If not, I'll pay for any needed parts. Dan at Arrow was very nice, he represents Arrow well.

    Arrow 540 Review

    Great looking aircraft, definitely not for the beginner. Had a few assemble issues. Wing & stab bolt alignment didn't exactly match up, close but no cigar. Spent some time on this issue. Next, the brake motor was on and the directions to release the brake are wrong.... After two calls to Arrow, resolved this issue. Following the manual, the CG is way off. Had to move the battery all the way forward + 1.5oz of weight. Once the CG was corrected the aircraft flies great on half the recommended throw. Landing is easy as long as you maintain power and flare just a few feet off the runway. With the aircraft dialed in, it's a blast to fly. Which means I don't need to drag my 43% aircraft to the field. Good luck.

    I couldn't give it a high rating for the quality. I had a very hard time getting the wings to line up to insert the mounting screw. It took some modification of the wings and the screws still went in at an angle. I hope Arrow takes a look at this to get it fixed. After I was able to get the wings mounted the rest was uneventful. Flying it was some what of a challenge until I was able to the proper amount of throw and expo inputted. after that t flew very well. Overall the aircraft flies well but they need to correct the wing alignment.

    This is a great looking plane and easy to assemble, has good power, however the gyro instructions and functionality I'm not yet sold on. Definitely need at 2600-3000mah 4s battery to maintain balance. The gyro adds complexity to the initial plug-in sequence.

    I have mixed feelings about the Edge. It’s a great looking airplane and the overall quality is good. The price is also reasonable for what you get. However, I had to replace the elevator servo because the servo wouldn’t center properly and the plane would wander in pitch. Even with that problem fixed the Edge just never felt “locked in.” I tried a forward CG, reduced rates with a health amount of expo, and I tried things with and without the stability system on. No matter what I tried it took a lot of work to get the Edge to fly smoothly. I’ve been flying all types of aircraft abut three times a week for 30 plus years. The Edge just wasn’t fun for me and is now up for sale. I want to like it, but…….

    I had many problems with this plane!! First the landing gear bent with every landing . The 90 to 100 mm for the CG was way out!! Tail heavy air planes are un fly able.
    I ended up replacing the reciver, speed control and removing the gyro. Just mayde the next time I fly it it will fly like a plane should fly!!
