Default 30cc Edge 540 QB Sneak Preview

Here are a couple of pictures of our new 30cc Edge. We will have specs and a price soon.

The airplane will come with full carbon and will be set up for the DLE 30 rear carb version, as well as 1.60-1.80 glow and electric.

Please let us know what you think!

The white shows up very well and it is easy to differentiate top from bottom. Very visible scheme!

Thank You

Wow... no doubt about it... I'll be adding that to my hanger of other Aeroworks birds! That is great, I like the cowl intake shape. I think that really makes or breaks the 540. Nice job! What other colors will be offered?

Thanks for the great comments. We are very excited about this new plane and the new DLE 30cc engine. The engine is very light and powerful.

The New 30cc Edge 540 is just one of many in a long line of new planes we are working on for both the DLE 30cc and the new DLE 20cc coming soon.

The 30cc Edge 540 is built with both quality and flight performance in mind same as our larger QB models. The finest of hardware, pre fabrication and will also include Carbon Main Gear, Tail Wheel and Wing and Stab tubes.

The Edge has been designed to accommodate Glow, Gas and Electric. It is very stable and forgiving yet extremely aerobatic. With a ready to fly weight of 10.5 pounds the power to weight is exceptional and makes this little model fly like the larger 50cc to 100cc plane.

With the introduction of the smaller gas engines there’s no limit to what will come next

Thank You
Rocco / Aeroworks

Looks terrific!   "can't wait to get one. A question: I have the 120 sized Yak.  What is the difference in size, such as wing span and area between these two?  I know folks have used the DLE 30 in my plane and I've wondered what the difference in size is between a 120 size and a plane designed specifically for 30cc?  Seems like the AUW is pretty similar.

Dave45,

The 30cc size planes are slightly larger then the .90-1.20 size planes. 74" to 76" wing span with a little over 1000 sq. in. wing area compared to the 70” to 72” wingspan with just less than 1000 sq.in. wing area. The DLE 30cc will still work on your .90-1.20 Yak and we have many customers using this combination. The 30cc size planes will also have slightly larger firewalls and shorter engine boxes to better accmodate the 30cc engine. Overall weight will be very close because there is not much more material being used in the production of the slightly larger model.

The new 30cc size planes will be a very nice combination and I am sure will become very popular.

Thank you
Rocco /Aeroworks

Thanks Rocco! The shorter engine box is a great idea. I've got an OS 160 on my Yak and its great. So I'll make the new Edge my first 30cc plane.

Please hurry up with the specs and some inside guts pics cowl and canopy off . My seagull extra 260 180 size with DLE30 V2 just went down this means I have a motor with no plane. Before being told about this plane I was considering 2 options A. rebuild the seagull kit or B. The Sbach 342 Now well there maybe a C. if time is on our side.

I have never owned a aeroworks or any high end kit for that matter I am ready for a quality ARF!!!

My AW Yak is my favorite plane of all time. Everything from assembly to flight performance has been top notch This 30cc Edge looks to be a fabulous project.

Asif,

We expect the first delivery late October.

We did not provide a tunnel in this plane to help save weight. But it would be easy to modify the fuse to fit the pipe.

Thank you

Great color scheme !!!!

Doing pre-orders yet? This is gonna be my next ship. I was working towards the 50cc Edge but was conflicted over the color layout.

This 30cc Edge is very nice.
