The flight went very well and I am extremely satisfied with the Edge and am looking forward to your new Extra 330S.


Although I have only just finished my Carden Edge, and have only three flights, this is one of the best flying planes I have flown to date.

It does all the manoeuvres with ease, hovers at less than throttle, has no bad habits and I can't wait to push the envelope.

Bob Hudson, Carden 40% edge 540

She's equipped with a DA-150 up front which is an incredible powerhouse.  I also have the KS muffler cans on pipes and a Mejlik 32-10 prop.  This is a super quiet combo.

JR 10X TX, 2x 4721 on each aileron, 8411 on elevators, 2x MPX Jumbo on rudder. I am running 2 1600ma Duralite packs on each of 2 receivers, and 1600ma Duralite ignition. Sure Link fittings on rudder servos and rudder horn.

Hi Dennis and Caroline

Here are a couple of pics of my recently finished Edge 540.

Finally got a chance to take her out between rain showers for her maiden voyage.  Things went so well I actually took her up for three more flights that day.  Can't wait for more, and cant wait to get some practice in on the IMAC sequences so I can take her to some of the contests.

In the tradition of my Carden 35% Extra 300 (Big Red), and my 35% Carden Cap 232, Big Red 2, I have named my 540 Big Red 3.

Thanks for producing such great flying planes

wayne_mathews_edge-0.jpg (20240 bytes) Hi there Guys & Ladies....  Just a short note to let you know my new Edge 540 has just taken to the air. She is a beauty & flies better than she looks!!! This one will take me far up the ladder of competition. A little more "tweaking" on the set-ups & engine will trim her out just right.   Wayne Mathews

wayne_mathews_edge-2.jpg (30994 bytes) Hope to make some "IMPACT" on the competition scene & keep Team Jamaica,  flying high.

This one's a beauty from Kirk Jensen, take a closer look

Hi, Bob
Here are the pics of my new Edge.  really liked your covering scheme, but wanted yellow. I like how it turned out. DA-150, JR 10X, 8411 servos everywhere but rudder, 2 Multiplex Jumbos there. Came in at 38 lbs.. I am on the list to get a 35% Edge from the first batch and my DA-100 is waiting.....  Kirk Jensen

Hey Dennis & Dave,
Got the new graphics on the bottom of my Edge. The Carden Aircraft is done in the mist holographic and the DA logo is in black. This past weekend we went to Marianna, FL. for the District 5 IMAA rally. 

Mike, Joey and myself had some really good demos together. The DA's ran great and the Edge's were awesome. They took a PIC of Mike, Joey and
myself  to put in High Flight. I told them to make sure that they listed that we were flying Carden Edges with DA 150s.

Thanks Blaine Austin

Bob Lea with his Carden Edge 540

Guys, I test flew Bob Lea's new Edge today. He has a JR 10x 8411's and a 3-W 150 on it.  Flew just like it had a 100 flights on it.  Only took a couple clicks of down trim and one right aileron.
It was very windy and it was hard to tell on the mixing.  Bob was wondering if we should test fly it in the wind.  I just smiled and told him that this was never even thought about being discussed at Lebanon.  Just get the damn thing started and let's rock.  Now that he's got this one done my Extra330S is headed to the building board.  Another Aeroworks guy converted.

Fuchs 29/13-3 blade prop makes this a super quiet combo  96 DB at 9 feet.  Monokote finish.  And Kane's Super Horns on the rudder   Super Control Horns
