EPP Edge made by Winners Model. This is a nice
flying fun 37 1/2" ARF. Made from EPP and stiffened with carbon
fiber and light ply. Incorporates a full fuse design with magnetic
canopy. The WM kits fly great, are made with quality, and priced
right. If you want to practice IMAC, tool around a local field,
Hover all day long, learn to fly low the WM kits are a great
addition. Fuselage is built around a light ply structure and control
surfaces are stiffened with carbon fiber to keep this airframe
stiff, strong, and impact resistant.

Builds just like
the Extra See Build Notes
EPP material, light-weight and crash resistant.
The revolutionary design adds to the structural intensity and
the rigidity of the airframe.
Light-weight design provides optimal Wing loading while ensuring
the strength of the airframe.
The composition and the proportion are well matched to provide
excellent flying characteristics, while still allowing for
precision aerobatic performance and 3D maneuverability.
Simple design allows for easy access and installation. And all
necessary accessories are provided in the package.
The color schemes are painted with new oil paint which makes the
color fresher and permanent.
Its small size excels at flying on a limited open space, such as
37 1/2 EPP Edge A (Red/Blue)
37 1/2 EPP Edge B (Green/White/T)

Lets Take a
look at what is in the box
Photos below are of the Extra but show the general
airframe structure and manufacturing quality.
Notice the Built in Carbon Fiber, light ply reinforced fuse, Light
ply reinforced control horn area.
Pre-installed Tail Gear and Wheel, Light Ply Servo Supports, Nice
Strong Canopy magnets, Finally a quality Firewall, Kit Includes
Hardware to Complete (wheel collars included, not photoed)
Underside of battery tray is supported as well
Here is how it is
Photos below are fo teh Extra but the Edge builds the same way
Install the Horizontal Stab, square it and glue, Same for the Main
wing, then the vertical stab
Cut a slit to slide the elevator through, install the elevator and
glue the hinges, install and glue the ailerons
Assemble and install the main gear, use included block for support
or leave it off for removable gear.
At this point all that is left is to glue in the servo supports for
the ailerons and install the electronics. This too about 30 minutes
with CA and kicker. The empty airframe weighs in at 11.4 ounces. Add
up your components for a final weight.
You will need 2 servo extensions for the tail feathers. We found 12"
extensions to be perfect. We used Power HD 1600A (6g) servos, but
most micro servos specking out similar to the old HS55's will do the
trick. When it comes to power, a system of 150-200 watts should be
plenty for 3D type power. We are starting with the 2835 series of
outrunner as we found we needed more nose weight. One could go with
a lighter motor and a larger capacity pack to increase flight time.
Our bird came out at 18.7 ounces (plus battery) and performs
