Big Electric Edge Revived

Here is a 50cc sized Lanier RC Edge 540 that has been raised from the dead. Still needs some minor cosmetic help and a few minor mechanical adjustments, but most of those can be made after a maiden flight... just to make sure. Pictured here with an APC 20 X 8 It now has a Vess 22B wood prop. The motor is an AXI 5345 on 12S. Two servo's per wing half, two servo's for the elevator and one really strong servo for the rudder. All the numbers for thrust, amp draw, watts and so forth are right in line with the HV85 ESC and it pulls hard in static tests... we'll; see this weekend .. I hope.


87" span. Weight unknown.. Lighter than it was... but CG is on the money. Oh, and a custom 2 cell A123 2300mah pack for the rx and servo's.

You ought to know..

Yes, Sonofgun.... you should know... about mean flatspins... especially the inverted kind you do with a really big one of a kind bi-plane in front of a huge crowd at an event. This one actually flies great. Had a speed control issue, and have'nt had a chance to fly it under full power with the new ESC yet, but so far it's really ... really awesome.. Thought about lighting it from the inside out for some really large night flying.... AMA? Don't know... but should be legal..
