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

Keep making memories!!
However Iím not too tickled with the new store. Has become very impersonal and very long ďif everĒ response times. Liked dealing with the flitetest personnel much more.
Recommend the game lane though. Thanks Jimmy
It was a fun plane to build, my only complaint is fitting. Got the fuselage put together and fit the canopy to the fuselage and the fit is way off, not enough off that I won't fly it, but, enough to make a good looking plane ugly. To spite the fitment problem with this plane I will be buying other planes from them. By the way, these planes are so easy to build, I've only been flying for about 8 months and have built 7 different FT planes, all easy to build and fly, these guys are great.
This is the 1st and last time I purchase anything from this site. Not very happy with A-Main hobbies either.
In the end, I felt this was a huge waste of my $$$.
Good luck with this relatively new website.
