Description

The Edge 540 V3 is Rc Factory's newest 1m model V3 series with increased stiffness and torsion rigidity. We have beefed up everything, but especially the torsion rigidity of the fuselage - so that fuselage twist in fast rolling maneuvers is now totally a thing of the past. The wing is thicker too, for better tolerance of the most insane, high-G stunts.

Those that are familiar with the previous 39” models will appreciate the new hardware and construction including rear tail control push rod assemblies with adjustable end links and new epp bracing for easy assembly. While creating a new ground up air-frame the duel aileron servos have now been re-located which creates a plush/clean look.   The over all flight envelope has increased greatly giving a sense of unreal control authority and increased roll rate was also achieved with the addition of outer counter balance tabs. This model was designed for the pilot wanting to learn the “next step” and also those who choose a balsa 3d model alternative.  * Spinner not included *     Two different power systems are now available for the V3 models.  The 58g motor setup is ideal for light weight and slower flying acrobatics, while the 72g is heavier setup with more thrust.

    Build of RCF 39" Edge 540 - V3

    1. The side flanges on the control horns are very weak.. Only apply pressure to the very top. Once tested, run your exacto blade down the side and this will help seat the horn (also works well for the CF spars).
    2. I found it better to install the links on the servo control horns prior to putting them on the plane.. a bit of a challenge afterwards... the brass clip is very small and subject to running off. Be sure to work over a tray or other catch item...
    3. For the small white plugs on the clevis - It works best if you use a 3/16 drill bit and slightly enlarge the opening... Hand twist it a few times and it'll go in better. You may have to slightly sand the ends of the CF rods to go into the connectors.
    4. If you take a popsicle stick; break it in half , then shave off two narrow pieces... they will slide through the alignment holes of the side force generators and hold it in place nicely until your glue sets.
    OVERALL - a relaxing and fun project to put together. Quality crafting by the RCF!

    To me, this kit design is “almost perfect”. I believe it would be perfect if you would factory form the top and bottom wing slots instead of requiring the modeler to hand cut the slots, and provide some additional reinforcement around the overly weakened fuse at the aileron servo pockets.
