Lookie what I see.
From the 3D Hobby Shop website:
This 47" Edge 540, developed by Scott Stoops, is a fantastic performer. Light KE coupling, no wing rock, excellent pitch authority, great all-around flight performance....all in a durable lightweight package. The Edge is really, really easy to assemble, too. The wings are easily removable, and ride on a strong carbon-tube wing spar. The landing gear is one-piece, molded carbon-fiber and mounts to a strong, composite-reinforced plate. The motor box is pre-assembled and pre-drilled and nutted for many popular 28-30mm outrunners. The tail feathers are fully-airfoiled for highest performance.
The Edge includes ball-link/phenolic control hardware, and is covered in genuine Oracover (Ultracote) covering. The green version is done in beautiful pearl metallic green. The red version is beautiful true red, just like the full-scale RedBull air racer.

Use Hitec HS-65HB or HS-65MG servos. Long servo arms are required for full 3D throw.
The Edge 47" requires a brushless outrunner motor 108-148 grams weight. Good choices include: Torque 2818T-900 or Hacker A30-16M for lightweight setups with 3S 2100-2500mah lipoly packs. For more power, use a Reaper GR-35 on 3S or 4S, or a Torque 2814T-820 on 4S 2200.
