Zivko Edge Hannes Arch Replica 48" Aerobatic 3D Printed RC Plane 3dLabPrint Radio Controlled Airplane Kit As a tribute to great Red Bull Air Race pilot Hannes Arch we decided to make a replica of his top-notch racing tool, the Zivko Edge 540 v3. This fast, sporty aerobatic plane is the most agile 3DLabPrint plane ever. With 6S setup it is a true pylon racer capable of sharp high G maneuvers. It’s symetric airfoil makes it neutral in any attitude. Unique wing-canopy 3D printed click lock makes the disassembly & transportation lightning fast & easy. 5 channel controls include motor, elevator, rudder & both ailerons. The Edge 540, manufactured by Zivko Aeronautics, is as precise & controllable as it is aggressive. The small, one-seater aircraft is a favourite amongst Red Bull Air Race pilots, largely due to its fuselage. The computer optimised, steel tube frame makes the Edge 540 an extremely light, very durable & easily repairable raceplane. Using an unconventional straight-edged wing, the Edge 540 sparked much interest in flying circles around the world, particularly after Kirby Chambliss began using it for aerobatic competitions. The aircraft has since evolved into the highly refined & technologically advanced version of the original prototype, with the radical wing now acknowledged as a pioneering feat of design. Hannes Arch was one of the most successful pilots in the history of the Red Bull Air Race. Up until the 2015 season Arch finished first or second overall in the last four World Championships. The first European to win the title in 2008, Arch was a creative force who pushed the world’s fastest motorsport forward with innovative tactics & technology. Fiercely competitive, he was an accomplished adventurer who had climbed most of the world’s highest mountains & thrown himself off many cliffs as a BASE jumper. The Austrian’s fighting spirit made the last four Red Bull Air Race Championships thrilling battles to the final & with 11 victories he was second on the all-time race wins list. He won the 2008 title in only his second season with a determined & fearless style of flying that shook up his rivals & forever changed the dynamic of the sport. Arch began flying at 16 after obtaining a Special Pilot’s Licence in his native Austria. He first focused on hang gliding & at 19 became a state-approved mountain & ski guide. At one point, Arch was also ranked as one of the world’s best mountaineers & climbers. He studied Sports Science & worked as a lecturer on sport climbing at Graz University but left just before finishing to focus on his flying passion. He became an accomplished paragliding test pilot & is credited with being one of the world’s first "aerobatic paragliders." He began experimenting with aerobatics in 1998 after making the crossover from free flying to motorised flying & joined the Swiss National Aerobatic Team. Arch made an indelible mark on the paragliding scene by organising a gruelling international competition
