3DHS 48" Edge 540?


Maybe I am mistaken but I could have sworn I saw a 48" edge 540 listed on the website?!?!? Now it appears to be gone! Anyone have any info on this or even better some pics

For the price it sounded awesome, maybe to awesome......

You aren't crazy.

The 48" Edge was available for preorder on the website. They took the preorder down momentarily until they could get pictures of the blue scheme posted on the website.

Here's pics.

Here's a video.

That is awesome!! I cant wait to see what the blue one looks like! That orange one looks really cool as well!

I am guessing these will be ariving with all the 41" edges? Or is this another shipment?

Not sure if anything has changed but here is what I know and someone can update me if things have changed.

It was availble for pre-sale yesterday for a while, I think. I saw a blue one was on their web site without pictures for a while. Work rules say I couldn't use work machine for purchases, dang IT dept. So I get off drive across Houston, log in, and it was gone.

I asked a few questions around here since I'm really in the steep part of the learning curve. I was provided a link yesterday to a post that indicated they took it down until they had pictures of the blue color scheme to post with it.

That was yesterday. Haven't seen any update since but I keep checking every once in a while. Working from home today just in case

I've never seen one of the 3DHS planes that I didn't like so I'd be glad to give them my money and get on the list sight unseen. I'm sure it will look great even though I'm more interested in how it flys.

So am I still current? Is there any new news?

ya, there was an item put into the site that was active, and people were indeed placing orders against it sight unseen. But, in order to prevent any potential hassle with "I thought I'd like the scheme but don't now" kind of support calls, it was deactivated. that said, the scheme looks awesome in my highly biased opinion


when we can get pics of the products sorted out, the pre-orders for the edges will be put back up and people can jump on them all they want. for the people quick on the mark that actually did pony up the money sight unseen: you rock!

As soon as the Red and Silver Edge is listed I'm pulling the trigger on it. Attached is a picture of one from SEFF.

SON OF A When it was first announced there was a red / silver one . Guess I'll be going with the soon to be seen blue scheme. Thanks for the clarification. I'm really looking forward to seeing the blue one now.

Bigger flies better but man that 41" is sure hard to beat. Either way you will be happy so just pick a color.

so true! the 41 is just fantastic! it doesn't fly like anyone elses 40" plane.... I flew two planes tonight the 89 Slick and the 41 Edge... I enjoyed both immensely.....

the 48 is going to be a rocking plane and on 130g power people are going to love it... I flew two 48" Vypers tonight and mine use to be on a 103g motor....very fun.... tonight was the first time I flew a 130g powered plane and it was just awesome.....
