Edge 540

by FliteTest | March 19, 2011 | (13) Posted in Reviews

The Josh's show their brotherly love while on the beaches of southern California while reviewing the Hobby King Edge 540. Josh Scott impresses the audience with his spot on specs for the plane, until Josh Bixler notices that Josh Scott begins to have difficulty with his facts. Josh Bixler claims to find himself speechless while giving a rundown of the planes lightweight, and dialed in performance, leaving few opportunities for Josh Scott to get a word in edgewise. This plane showed itself to be an impressive performer, with it's lightweight construction, and carbon fiber landing struts/gear. No magnetic hatches on this aircraft, Josh Bixler was able to take it through a review without losing the canopy.

Can you advise me what size prop you were running with this set up and a estimate on your amps / watts. They no longer sell the Aerodrive SK series so I will be using the TGY NTM 35-36 910kv motor on this project. Thanks

Please advise what prop size was used with the TGY AerodriveXp motor on this project. Like Switch2403, I'm using the NTM 35-26 910kv motor and would like a starting point for the prop... Thanks!
