    Introducing The New 50cc Edge 540 ARF-QB!

    Introducing the new 50cc Edge 540 ARF-QB! This completely new offering has been a long time in the making. Aeroworks was the first manufacturer to release an Edge to the aerobatic arf market, ever since we discontinued the original edge we have had many ,many requests for a new design. This new airplane is just that, a 100% redesign of the popular Edge 540 and it promises to be the best flying Edge you have ever flown! This new design incorporates all of the QB features we are known for. The 50cc Edge also includes a full canister/pipe tunnel for easy mounting, and a blind mounted cowling for a great scale appearance.

    Be sure to stop by and see the new 50cc Edge 540 at the Toledo expo next weekend!


    $699.95

    Wing span 88 inches.
    Wing Area 1350 sq. in.
    Fuselage Length 81" (rudder to spinner)
    Weight 17.5 to 18.5 lbs
    Engine 50cc Gas

    It definitely looks like a tweaked design. I see a fatter fuse, swept canopy, and a shorter squared nose compared to the full scale Edge. I don't know if it's good or bad, but it's different. Looks cool!

    This thing looks bad ass. Can we expect to see more schemes in the future?

    Compare it to this pic and the canopy position looks dead on, I bet once we see more pics and angles of the plane you'll be able to tell alot better if the scaled down AW Edge is dead on.

    RE: Introducing The New 50cc Edge 540 ARF-QB!

    The New Edge 540 QB has a very scale outline. We worked on the design of this model for a long time to make the best looking Edge 540 on the market.

    We plan on offering the plane in a couple of different color versions. Expected delivery is early to mid summer.

    Thank you

    That is the "original" Edge 540 that was used in the 1st or 2nd Red Bull Air Race when they hadn't started modifying the planes. Slicks are totally different airframes based on the Extra, Edge and, the Laser. The first pic is a Slick and the 2nd is an "original" Edge 540.

    I like the AW Edge! It looks cool!

    Great job Mark - I really like them both (kinda partial to the green and blue maybe). Also, I really like the pattern on the bottom much better than stripes - really looks good!

    Cool!!!

    All I have to say as an Edge 540 fan is I sure hope you guys release the 100cc next. If there is a 100cc Edge, I will be one of the first in line to buy one of those. Very, very nice looking plane but I hope you guys pick some different schemes for the 100cc Edge. Nothing wrong with these at all, just would like something more along the scale lines for a scheme.

    RE: Introducing The New 50cc Edge 540 ARF-QB!

    Hey Guys, I got my Edge about two weeks ago, and they have taken the QB thing to the next level! I swear if you unbox it all, and leave it alone for a day, or two, it will build itself! I chose the Green, and absolutely love it! As soon as it comes out of the trailer, it has everyone's attention! With a cheapo, China, 52cc, the plane flys great. I bought this plane to start learning 3d, but I will say that it does IMAC very true! If I ever learn 3d, I will let you know how it does . Even with multiple 100cc planes, the little AW edge540(.46-.61) has continued to be my favorite plane, but it should feel threatened now, as I am sure that this one will win me over within the next few flights! Rocco, and the rest of the crew, Great Job Guys!-Keep up the Good work!

    Hey Mark,
    I would like to know if the gear cuffs that is on the extra 300 will fit on the new edge?
    Thanks,
    Don.

    Don,

    Sorry but the gear cuffs will not fit. They are a totally different designed gear in size and shape.

    Thank You
