Bill

Great to see the 540 VII. It seem to see a lot of the 50% edges around. However I never seem to see any 50% 260's. Are they not as popular as the Edge? I am really torn between the Edge or the 260 for the "next" project after the ultimate?

Mike
Dont know where you find the time to build 2 50%ers at the same time. or the space....
Anyway looking forward to your builld thread!

The new Zivko Edge now looks like a RACING airplane. Form follows function. They have taken the aerobatic part out of RedBull a couple of years ago. If you watch the airframes develop, they become sleeker. RedBull should just sponsor the Experimental class in RENO style racing, IMO.

I kinda like it.

Mike if its not too late, I need an 'empty' weight for the airframe. Can you weigh the whole plane for me?

Thanks
