Default Edge 540...but whose?


I recently bought a partially completed Edge 540 ARF with a 74" wingspan No paperwork came with it. The original graphics on wings and fuse are familiar but I have not found who produced the ARF. I would very much like to buy, borrow or download the instructional manual for it to determine engine power range, CG location, control surface travel, etc. Any leads as to manufacture, location of a manual would be greatfully appreciated!

That is a Cap 232 not an Edge. I can't tell what kit it is. Maybe some pictures of the inside will give some clues.

I was going to say I've never seen a 540 with a swept leading edge.

At this point I am thinking a recovered World models Cap 232 with Hangar 9 Edge stickers.

Thanks guys! It still remains a mystery...since the "Edge 540"graphics and their associated framing are not decals (like the rest of logos) but professionally stenciled onto the covering. I'll think that there might be some association with JR but, I guess JR doesn't exist anymore (

JR Propo is alive and well. It is pretty darned clear to me where those decals came from.

Looking at the "540" on the wing, that is a sticker. Fuse looks like a sticker too. "Aeroshell" is for sure a sticker as well.

Looks like we have a winner! Three quick questions if I may: 1) Is/was this your plane? 2) Might you have the assembly manual 3) if your answer is yes, may I buy, or borrow it so that I can photocopy and return it to you quickly! Many thanks! Jerry Sciortino
