check out the new Zivko Edge.....
Not all of the new Edge 540 III will look like that. (IMHO It looks BITCHIN!) That's Hannes Arch's new Red Bull race plane. From what I have been hearing there will be one even more wild looking than that show up at the second round of the series unless they run more snags.

Mike that's very impressive for a plane this size.Do you know what the out of the box weight was on the first Edge?
With a out of the box weight of 29lbs this plane should fly pretty good with a engine smaller than the 275.
