Words from the Designer: The original Edge 540 profile was the result of my desire to learn 3D aerobatics at a very reasonable cost using standard radio equipment and readily available .40 – .46 size sport motors. After flying many fun fly aircraft on the market I decided to design my own based on the popular Edge 540, which has proven itself at all levels of aerobatic competition. The large wing area, thick aspect ratio, and tail design allow this aircraft to perform anything you can imagine: elevators, harriers, super fast waterfalls, knife edge spins, positive and inverted climbing flat spins, and of course rock solid hovers and torque rolls.This newest Edge 540 Version 3 incorporates all the latest construction techniques as well as the trademark OMP two-piece wing attachment technique. Aerodynamic improvements from the original Edge Profile are also incorporated to make this new profile even better than before. The OMP Edge has always been taunted as a great 3d trainer for those on a limited budget and now that package is even better. The fuse uses the proven durability of the fiberglass tube yet retains the balsa sheeted frame for stiffness with no tail flutter. The two piece wings can be permanently glued to the fuse for extra stiffness or simply bolted on or removed for easy transport. The new Edge 540 V3 makes the perfect profile for 3D training and the experienced pilot as well.I had never flown a large-scale aircraft or performed 3D aerobatics before designing this profile and yet learned to perform all these maneuvers with this aircraft in a short period of time. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have.
