I have only two photos of the prototype to show right now. Will post more info as it becomes available to me. The specs should be similar to those of this MXS:

You mean SkyWing's YAK54? It should be available at the end of the month.

There are now 2 color schemes to choose from: Yellow and Green.

I test-flew the prototype. It felt similar to the MXS overall, although perhaps with slightly more wing rocking in harrier. This plane excels in slow knife edge. Please take a look at the High Alpha Knife Edge/Death Slide in the video.

Hey feda is there a Canadian source for these planes or is it Asia only like Best value?

#12 100mph Jul 01, 2011 10:14 AM

Looks great! nice roll rate, wing looks strong and handles the G's well.

I ordered an Extra in green and an MXS in red last week on Thursday. They arrived in good condition on Wednesday this week via EMS. Unfortunately the motors/props and ESCs I ordered from HK aren't here yet.

Everybody else seems to be doing the MXS, so I'm going to start with the Extra.

I'm using plush 40A escs and these motors-

mostly because just about every motor recommended in the MXS thread was OOS at HK when I ordered. I've also ordered a range of props from 11x5 to 12x6 to play around with.

I was going to order the MG14 servos from HK, but they've got dreadful reviews so I'm using the Hextronic 9G ones I've got lying around.

I just got back from a 6 week holiday and I've got some catching up to do.

I reckon I've used more than 40 MG14 servos in total and they work very well in my experience.

Right; now I'm going to watch the Skywing Extra video and see if I can avoid the temptation to get one ;).

EDIT: I watched the video. Nice flying feda. It seems like the Extra has the same good flying qualities as the MXS.

This one is killing me because my Yak54 still in the box....................I really loved The Extra. Why you make it last!!!:D
