I just got this plane in a local auction. Does anyone know what it is? It may have been an ARF or a Kit. Wingspan is 40 in., Length including Rudder is 36 in. The Fuselage is laminated with a core foam & outer layers of Depron. The wing has a carbon I beam construction. I am looking for the instructions but probably could finish it without them. Thanks in advance.

A friend of mine may have given me the answer. It possibly was an old kit put out by 3dhobbies.com. He is building one of theirs using similar construction. The one I have is no longer being produced. I did download a building manual for a bipe & it looks like the same manufacturing techniques.

Looks like the Edge 540 or the Yak 54. I think the Edge has the straighter leading edge and the Yak the sweeping LE.

It is from Airfoilz/3dxhobbies. Not sure if they are still making the planes. Call before sending money.

Had one at one time, long ago. Flew nice. Wing is folded depron and the spar is a built up balsa. The spar is gorilla glued into the folded wing. Fuse came already constructed. Just needed to build the wing, elevator, rudder, motor mount, linkage and landing gear assembly.

BPhobbies still have some of the product line I believe.

The landing gear assembly was weak and many people reinforced the gear housing.

You can go to the 3D forum here and do a search on 'Airfoilz'. Probably get a lot of hits.
