I ordered one yesterday and it should be here by the weekend. This is the first model in their e-performance series that has plug in wings. Dont have to worry about the one piece wings failing at the joint now with this one.

I just picked up the 41" Edge 540 last night. Has anyone started a build thread on this plane yet.

It looks like a beautiful plane and can't wait to get it together. The only thing I was trying to find was if The Eflite park 480 would power this plane fine. If any knows please point me in the right direction. The directions call for the Electrifly 35-30-1250 Outrunner.

MomoFatts,
I would think the Park 480 would do a very nice job of powering the Electrifly Edge. With a 3S 2100 Prolite and an 11x7 prop they are good for nearly 300 watts.

Thank you. I have several 3s flight power batteries from the 1345mah 20c to 2500mah 20c and 25c.

The only thing is the 540 motor mount is setup for a Rimfire so I will have to modify it to work.

This plane is very nice. The trim scheme looks very good in person. The Blue really sets it off. I also like the checker scheme on the bottom for better orientation while in the air.

I really like the Edge 540 T. Once I fly this and I like it I will probably have to get the Edge 540-T.

Ok its all put together. I just have to balance and set up the throws. Everything went together very well. I only had to modify the motor mount to fit the Eflite Park 480.

Here are the pics with the decals on. The canopy is still held on with tape. Hoping to maiden tomorrow.

Momo,
You think the gear/mount can handle short grass field ops?
