The Flite Test Edge is based on the Zivko Edge 540 V3, which is a great aerobatic plane and also a very popular choice for pilots competing in the Red Bull Air Races. The FT Edge captures the crips lines of the real Edge while offering a wide flight envelope capable of doing anything from smooth pattern flying to extreme aerobatic maneuvers. Appealing to both sport fliers and 3D pilots alike!

The FT Edge has a removable one-piece wing so that it can be easily transported even in smaller vehicles.  it's large hatch allows easy access to the battery and other electronics. It also has optional landing gear, wheel pants and side force generators allowing you to customize the aircraft to your own preferences.

"This plane was designed to suit my personal preferences as a pilot, so the design has been optimized for 3D aerobatics with large control surfaces enabling the plane to do anything you can throw at it. It has a good power-to-weight ratio when paired with our Power Pack C motor. This delivers enough power for unlimited vertical while keeping the aircraft light enough for low and slow aerobatics. These characteristics make this plane suitable for seasoned 3D pilots as well as those just getting into aerobatic flying. No matter where you are in your journey through the world of flight the FT Edge can serve as a platform for you to further your flying experiences." - Andres Lu

Flite Test Edge 540 Aerobatic Electric Airplane Kit (1016mm)
This was probably the best purchase I have ever made from Filtetest! It flies amazing! Maybe a bit more strength in the motor mount and it would be perfect!! 10/10 would and will buy again!

Flite Test Edge 540 Aerobatic Electric Airplane Kit (1016mm)
I got my plane from my local hobby town. I built the plane to what i can. parts in the kit are to small or doing properly fit ( cowling, vertical stab, and some other smaller parts. The build video is rushed and hard to keep up with and understand. I have built many FT planes and love them with how easy they are to build, but this plane with the incorrect parts and rushed video make this plane hard to work with.
