piolt edge 540v3

I don't fully understand what the curved wing tips are for? Do I need them or will the bird fly fine with out them? They are a pain to put on and off. Any help would be thank full.

Personally i don't like how it looks with them, but if you need them or not i have no clue.

No need for it. One flyer at our club got the new 540 V3 and he fly it without them. Myself, I think they look cool..

It will fly fine without them. On the full scale planes they add to the efficiency of the wing by preventing the intermixing of high and low pressures at the wing tip.

On a model it's a nice scale accent.

When your an old guy with tri volkels it is hard to see in the hole to get on the bolt head. Plus the wings don't fit my wing bags with them on. I t fly's really well on my DLE 111 with cans pleanty of power. It does seem to roll slower than my extra 300 might be the tips. Will try it with out them next time out thanks for the feed back.
