Help! How to put the Radical RC Edge 540 together?????

I just recently bought one of these planes and of course, no instructions. Does anyone have instructions on putting this together? I emailed radical rc and they said they have no instructions and have no idea where to find them! He said "they should be in the box on a cd" Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you

Wow, that is a blast from the past! That kit must be at least 8 years old. Did you speak specifically with Dave Thacker at Radical? He should be able to come up with something. It is a dead-simple build, aside from pre-loading the carbon ribbon on the top and bottom of the wing. If you do find instructions, then they will cover building a scratch gearbox for the brushed 370 motor and installing the 8-cell nicad power pack! It will be a flying antique.

Yeah, It is a very old kit indeed. So old that there isnt any info on it. I spoke to him directly through email and this is what he said:

The instructions should be in the kit. I think we did that one on a CD? I no longer have any copies. It's been 5 or 6 years since we made that product.


Wow, big help he was. Anyways, I have been searching and I only came up with 7 full pages full of people asking abouut it and conversating on it on here. No build photos or instructions. A little bit of info about the wing loading but I didnt much understand it. Anyone have this CD that Dave was talking about?

I cant imagine Dave hanging you out to dry with no way of reasonably assembling the plane. Do you feel confident trying it with the directions?

It doesnt look super complicated. Might I suggest a build thread? Start the build and solicit advice, Im sure there are enough competent people here that would help. Just a suggestion.
