ZIVKO EDGE 540 V3
3G Zivko Edge 540, V3 has been specially designed for the race. It has the same engine but its shape is clearly more aero-dynamic and it is lighter. The plane cut out for speed and in aerobatics. François Le Vot will start the season with the old plane ant then get this new one which should clearly improve his already outstanding results!
