Overview

Sharpen your flying skills with this exhilarating aerobat based on Hangar 9's popular 1/3-scale Edge 540. Try torque rolls and hovers, tumbles and snaps. The Mini Edge 540's lightweight balsa and light-ply construction provides better, more delicate flight, and the mid-wing design optimizes 3D performance. An adjustable micro pull-pull set for the rudder provides precise control. Team the included gearbox and propeller with E-flite Park 400 brushless motors for extreme performance. Keeping the Mini Edge performing smoothly and looking great are a lightweight fiberglass cowl and wheel pants, carbon fiber landing gear and colorful UltraCote scheme.

Product Support Tips

10T Pinion Gear

We have included a 10 Tooth (m0.4) pinion gear in the parts bag with your Mini Edge. We recommend you use this pinion gear when installed on our E-flite Park 400 Brushless Motors and you use the included 6.6:1 gearbox. The spur gear on the gearbox is 66 Tooth and using the 10 Tooth pinion gear will give you the 6.6:1 gear ratio. The included 10T pinion is 6mm long and will allow for overhang on both sides of the spur gear when installed for the best mesh.

Motor Installation

When installing your motor into the E-flite gearbox, it is very important that your gear mesh is set correctly and the gear’s mesh is smooth with no binding. The E-flite gearbox features adjustable slotted mounting holes so that you can ensure your gear mesh is correct. Remember, if your mesh is too loose or too tight, it may strip the gears. See the instructions included with your E-flite gearbox for more helpful tips on gear mesh and motor installation.
Proper gear mesh is extremely important for high power set ups, such as those systems typically used to power the Mini Edge. Be certain to check the mesh at multiple points on the spur gear before finalizing the motor mounting position in the gearbox. To extend the life of your gearbox, we also recommend using
a small amount of grease, such as lithium grease, on the spur gear.
It is very important that you check to be sure the propeller is balanced before installing onto the shaft. An unbalanced propeller may strip the gear. When installing the propeller, please do not over tighten the 3mm lock nut. The use of the lock nut will prevent the propeller from coming loose.

Selecting the Right Brushless Motor

We are recommending either the E-flite Park 400 Brushless Motor with 4200Kv (EFLM1100) or the version with 3700Kv (EFLM1105). The 3700Kv
motor provides plenty of power for sport and entry level 3D pilots with the ability to hover and climb vertically using the stock 6.6:1 gearbox and 12 x 6 propeller. This motor will draw less current and provide longer flight duration. The 4200Kv motor should only be used by experienced pilots who manage throttle appropriately. This motor will provide even better vertical performance at the expense of flight duration due to the increased current draw. It is extremely important to monitor gearbox wear and motor temperature when using the 4200Kv motor. Lack of proper throttle management using this motor may result in damage to the motor, gearbox, esc, and battery.
