Pilot R/C, Don't think any mods are needed. they are light and strong. To bad about the engine though.

Re: Pilot Edge 540 build

A great flying plane!! We've really had good success modifying the stabs to make them larger but al depends on your flying style. There are a number of threads on the mods in the ARF section (37% Pilot Edge, 50cc Pilot Edge).

Re: Pilot Edge 540 build

Ordered this plane Will be my first big ARF

Not a big selection of motors in stock this time of year lol. Decided on EME60, but the only one left has electric start. I like this, but hope I won't notice the extra weight, as it will add over 1lb to AUW.
