57Ē Composite Edge 540

From Taildragger...

Hi pilots, RC Gadgetz is proud the announce the long-awaited 57Ē Composite Edge 540 This isnít just another Edge 540, this is an Edge 540 that has been engineered to do one thing and that is to fly awesome! We listened to your feedback and used the schemes designed by our fellow FG members that you folks voted for, took what we learned from our previous composite Slick 560 and MXS to make something that not only withstands time and mother nature but is also humble and forgiving.

We have been working on this Edge 540 for quite some time, we designed the plane to fly when pushed to its limit, snappy, fast, agile, and performing the most G demanding maneuvers with ease, but when its time to slow things down, it becomes floaty and so easy to control, it is a perfect blend.

We added the aileron counterbalance to reduce the load on the servo, in turn giving you unbelievable continuous roll rate capability. We listened to you with regards to the plastic cowl and how more strength was needed, so we changed the material from plastic to fiberglass making the cowl more durable. We and our team pilot believe that the Edge 540 is the complete package from precision flying to all the way down on the deck, jaw-dropping 3D.

Happy Flying - RC Gadgetz Team

Awesome flying plane right here! I’ve been lucky enough to fly this thing for the past month and it gets better and better, extremely floaty, very aggressive when down on the deck, and has some great tail authority. Great plane for some backyard hucking!

Can't wait to hear what you think of this beauty.

We really tried our best to offer a plane that is an all rounder when it comes to flight characteristics.

Maiden was a blast!

The Edge is super light & stable. Tracks likes itís on rails. Rock solid harrier. No KE coupling & rolls are nice & axial.

Hi Buzzed.

I am glad you are enjoying the plane.

The pictures look great, keep them coming.

Do tell us which battery cell count you enjoy flying more 3cell or 4cell.

Well, I have a ďlead-thumbĒ & love power...but the low, slow, ultra-stable characteristics of the 3S setup is addictive! Having said that, the high speed 4S tumbles & KE spins are an absolute blast too! I guess itís 50/50 for either & really cool that it can be two planes in one.

Nicely done RCGadgets!

Are you swapping props when you go to 4s? I have similar pack sizes on both 3 and 4s that I also plan on using.
