Go insane! From the realm of "flies like balsa, costs and repairs like foam" arrived a new model from Rc Factory, the 42" EPP Edge 540 XL. Loosely based on the full size Edge, the unmatched Red Bull Air Race (TM) competitor, the Rc Factory's goal was to parallel Twisted Hobbys team pilot Cody Wojcik's legendary Veloxity performance while create a fresh appeal.

Exceptional 3D Flyer
This was my first profile plane and I’ve got to say I’m really happy with it. Flies incredibly stable at normal speeds, parachutes when stalled. High alpha is a bit wonky, really likes to tip back and forth a bit and very touchy. Easiest plane I have ever hovered, you can pop it up and leave the right stick centered for a few seconds till it starts rolling. This thing doesn’t know the difference between knife edge and inverted flight, it just flies straight. However there is a fine line on the types of 3D stunts it can do since it doesn’t have much inertia. All and all this plane is very addicting and I will be coming back to twisted hobbies in the future.
EPP Edge 540 XL 43"
This was a fun build and the PDF file instructions covered everything I needed to know to build it. I used both Foam-Tac and Welders glue to hold everything together depending on the joint. The 50 amp speed control I was going to use did not have a strong enough SBEC so I am waiting for a new one before I can fly it.
It time travelled to my house! Its Amazing!
First I must say the fastest shipping on the planet it got to me in 2 days from Florida to San Mateo California! 2nd this is my first 3D plane but I have seen many and the quality on this thing is just amazing compared to what I've seen with other companies that my friends fly. I race mini quads and freestyle, and also fpv fixed-wing but this is my first 3D plane. But I know quality when I see it I've been the hobby for a long time. I can't wait to fly it I know nothing about 3D flying but I'm a quick learner and I have a flight simulator RealFlight 8 and now 9 and I'm going to make this plane on the flight simulator and I'll put the download link here on my review if I'm able to edit it. Thanks for the fast service and I hope to do more business soon!
43" Edge 540
My new favorite windy day flyer. I installed an aura8 and this plane is awesome! Love the way it flys and how I am not affraid to fly low and try new moves. Highly recommended ;)
Great Gift from a Friend
My friend Mike liked this plane so much he thought I needed one. What a great plane! Flies awesome. Love it!
Very nice plane at an amazing price.
The 43" Edge lives up to every expectation I had of it. Just as said by Twisted Hobbies, the 43" Edge flies like Balsa. So not kidding. Harriers are ultra stable, inverted harriers the same. Parachutes are so freaking cool too. Holds a hover at about 3/8th throttle. Mash the gas pedal and it's ballistic missile fast...straight up! I am so impressed, I may get another just cuz. Lol. My son liked it so much, he's decided he now needs one. ALL in all, if any of you are looking for a fun flyer you can toss in the car and fly almost immediately, with no fuss the Twisted Hobbies 43" Edge just might be up your alley.
Flies Better than Veloxity
I flew this plane today. I can't believe how stable and agile this one is. I was flying in a 10 mph cross wind and the plane didn't know the difference. By the time I had flown the 4th battery I was in love. It is the best Twisted Hobbys plane that I have flown and I have a stable full! I have the Veloxity and everyone raves about it and I agree it’s great, but the Edge 540 XL takes it up a notch. The only difference between the two planes physically is the Edge has a sleeker fuselage and a bigger elevator; probably 10 square inches or so bigger than the Veloxity. The Veloxity has a rectangular shaped elevator the Edge has an irregular shaped elevator and with a larger surface and great throws it does unbelievable snap loops. I love this plane and I agree with Roy Rauch who wrote a review. I think this flies better than the Veloxity. I highly recommend it! My only negative is that I don’t like green, but will live with it; one painted red would have done the trick for me!
EPP Edge 540 XL
Kit comes package well. Builds fast but you have to use the Veloxity pdf plans. The rudder push rod for the Edge is longer then the one for the Veloxity. I think I had to make it around 187mm long. Lucky I was able to use ca debonder and reused clevises. Other then that it builds just like the Veloxity (if you have built one). Using the recommended servos and motor this plane flies very well just like the Veloxity if not better! I highly recommend this kit if you're looking for an awesome 3D foamy plane!!!
