Extra 300 / Edge 540

The Extra Flugzeugbau 300 and the Zivko Edge 540 are unlimited category competition aerobatic
monoplanes. Stressed for 10 G's these "Crotch Rockets" are capable of a 420 degree per second roll
rate and a 3,700 foot per minute climb rate. The Zivko Edge 540X is the most common aircraft used in
the Red Bull Air Race World Series in fact all champions of the World Series have flown this aircraft.
Patty Wagstaff, Top Female Aerobatics Champion of all times, has flown various models of the 300 in
aerobatic competitions and airshows since the mid-1980s. Costing upwards of $1,000,000.00 per plane,
because these are custom built planes, it is uncertain how many are currently flying. The Extra & Edge
are also very popular RC Planes with modelers because of their excellent flying qualities.
