Re: What engine for 50cc Aeroworks Edge 540

Whether we like it or not, the manufacturer's really do know their products.

Aeroworks is a leader in this type of plane and that 16 pound craft is wonderfully OVER powered with a 50cc engine - it will exceed your abilities quite nicely.

To put anything larger into it will cause balance problems as well as over stress the airframe (assuming you CAN balance the plane)

I would suggest that you keep to the manufacturer's guidelines until you can prove that the manufacture is WRONG.

This does happen from time to time - but I have never heard of it happening with an Aeroworks product.

Happy Landings
