EPerformance XLC

Edge 540T
All the performance you want and more!

The 50" class is an exciting, emerging category of electric aircraft, and the Edge 540T is sure to be a standout! Slightly smaller than traditional .40 glow models, 50" class planes boast many sophisticated features that discriminating pilots look for in an aerobatic ARF. The Edge 540T, the first in the E-Performance XLC (Extreme Light Concept) Series, takes those features a step further — resulting in a spirited performer that takes full advantage of advanced ElectriFly engineering and pre-fabrication to instantly become a leader in this bold new market!

  • Carbon fiber, hand-selected woods and lightweight fiberglass combine to create an ARF that rivals the most exclusive aerobatic models on the market.
  • Airfoiled control surfaces, pre-hinged ailerons and rudder and a pre-installed motor box with cowl ring are just some of the examples of the attention to detail and pre-fabrication you'll find on this Edge 540T.
  • No expense has been spared in engineering a spirited performer that even the most discriminating pilot will appreciate.
  • Extensive preassembly and pre-covering in genuine MonoKote film accelerates box-to-flight line time to just a few hours.

Edge 540T Parts
With its precisely interlocking parts, your Edge 540T can be impressing onlookers at the field after just 6-8 hours of easy final assembly.


Edge 540T Carbon fiber, hand-selected woods
Carbon fiber, hand-selected woods and lightweight fiberglass combine to create an ARF that rivals the most exclusive aerobatic models on the market.


Powerful magnets keep the one piece vacuum-formed canopy/turtledeck securely in place. Removing the canopy provides easy access to the battery compartment, which is roomy enough for 4S LiPo packs.


spacer servos
Airfoiled control surfaces allow for precision tracking throughout the entire flight envelope. Maxing out the throws delivers all the agility needed for executing extreme 3D maneuvers.


This airplane is designed to fly unlimited aerobatics with the RimFire™ 42-50-800 outrunner brushless motor. The motor box is preinstalled with blind nuts, providing perfect spacing for the spinner backplate without the need for any measuring.
The self-aligning wheel pants and landing gear legs are made of lightweight fiberglass. Low profile axles eliminate bulky bolts and give the wheel pants a super-clean look.

Edge 540T cowl
Lightweight fiberglass gives the cowl a quality appearance. The cowl ring and magnets are pre-glued and factory-aligned.

The wing tube joiner is made of carbon-fiber material. It aligns the wing automatically and allows for easy transport to and from the field.

For even more style and lighter weight, carbon-fiber wheel pants (GPMA3320) and landing gear (GPMA3319) are available separately!

Performance and appearance ensure that all eyes will be on the Edge 540T.
