Question
35% Edge 540 - (Plans/Short KIt) Who still makes them?

Hi All,

Looking for a 35% Edge 540 that i can build, Due to my location a Plan set , and accessories would be ideal, as a Kit will be expensive to ship to me.

I would be after a Carden/Aeroworks/Omp/Godfrey type edge or similer and that is 3D Capable, Im just struggling to find something in this size.

Few questions?
Were any of the above models made with built up wings?
My thinking is that if i can obtain some plans and then i just need to figure out cowl etc.

If there is any other suggestions for what im after im all ears.

Thanks Everyone.

Ive been searching everywhere, Appears the Kit builders of the 90's-00's Vanished or moved to ARF.


Wishing to build one of the kits to keep the history alive. Seamed like a pretty cool time for model aviation. With TOC etc.

Have you considered maybe scratch building one, 3-views can be scaled down pretty easy.

Just a thought...

Hodge, I know that the Carden has foam wings and tail as well as the turtle deck and belly pan. I think the Aeroworks had foam wings as well, couldn't say 100% having not owned one.
