  • Official Black Horse Edge 540 V3 2000mm ARF Discussion Thread

    Product page:

    The Zivko Edge 540 manufactured by Zivko Aeronautics is a highly aerobatic aircraft. Capable of a 420 degree per second roll rate and a 3,700 foot per minute climb rate, it has been flown to victory on the international Unlimited aerobatics circuit several times since the mid-1990s. A tandem-seat version is sold as the Edge 540T.

    The Zivko Edge 540 is the most common aircraft used in the Red Bull Air Race World Series.

    Our model is scaled to approximately 1:3.7 and attention has been given to providing a realistic appearance with outstanding flight characteristics. The model was designed for electric power but can also be flown using a matched pair of internal combustion engines of about 30-35cc displacement.
