3DHS 74" Edge 540
The 74" Edge from 3DHobbyShop will be arriving soon in the warehouse... time for a thread!
Scott Stoops has delivered another outstanding Edge 540 design, this time in 74" wingspan for 26-35CC gas or 6S-8S Electric power, or even 1.50-2.10 glow.
This Edge takes its styling cues from the awesome pylon racing Edges of the last few seasons, but its aerodynamics are optimized for aerobatics and post-stall 3D flight. All of the features pilots have come to expect a Stoops design: low coupling, excellent harrier, crisp precision - they are all here in a fantastic looking and easy-to-assemble package.
Wing Area: 1000 Sq. Inches
Weight: 9.5-11 lbs.
25-35CC Gas (DLE-30 Recommended)
1.50-2.10 Glow (Mount not included in kit)
Hacker A50-12L with 6S 5000-5800mah 19x10 or 20x10 prop
Hacker A50-14L with 8S 3500-4400mah 18x8 or 19x8 prop
...thread will naturally populate with more pics and videos as we have them, but here's a few of what we've shown already.
note: the photos of the red scheme below are showing the stock vinyl graphics that come included in the box.

I knew I wouldn't be able to resist. I've wanted one of these for way too long...
So for those that have actually flown a production model (has anybody? Team pilots? Ben? Noll?), how heavy are they real world weight, as compared to say a 70/71 Slick?
The 72" SC was about 1/2 lb heavier on the same setup as a 70" Slick. Likewise the 68" Velox is about 1/2 lb lighter than the 70/71" Slick.
The 72" SC was kind of pushing the 6s power system close to the limit, I always thought 8s would have been a better choice on that plane. If this is much heavier than the SC, then I think I definitely should go for 8s, which isn't ideal for me since all my other 68-70" planes are 6s. Would prefere to stay 6s, but I also like a lot of power. I think the 70" Slick is perfect on 2200 watts.
I would love to see bare airframe weights posted on the website, just the assembled plane, no servos/motor/etc. It would make it much easier to plan power systems I think!
I would just go with the A5012L. on a hot 6s pack and 20x10 prop that motor rocks, and if you decide to go 8s all you have to do is change the prop (and acquire batteries).
