Official- Extreme Flight 60" Extra 300 EXP Build thread
 
12 Attachment(s)

This has been a great season for me. It started with a trip to EF headquarters in early March. Where I was Lucky enough to Hang out With Chris, and fly the preproduction version of the 60" Edge EXP. Followed by a Trip to SEFF! Where I flew,with Donatas Pauzuolis, Lee Morey, and Daniel Holman! Then a few weeks ago, Chris asked me to setup the Official, Extreme Flight 60" Extra EXP Build Thread:cool:..To top it all off.. Thanks to Extreme Flight's EXP's, my flying has never looked better!


After the success of the 60" Edge EXP, we are all anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new 60" Extra EXP.

What Daniel Holman has to say about the 60" Extra EXP:

"The 48" Extra EXP is my favorite of all those and as soon as Chris told me that he was working on a 60, I was stoked! After flying it at SEFF I was speechless! It flies precision better than any other electric plane that I've flown in that size and 3D is insane as well. It will out tumble the Edge and rolls are perfectly axial. No KE coupling and it is rock solid no matter what you do! All that coupled with what has been my all time favorite scheme for a long time, it's going to be amazing! -Can't wait!"

Daniel Holman


Extreme flight Offers a discount if you purchase the Combo Kit. The Combo package includes Airframe, Torque 4016T/500 brushless motor, and Airboss 80amp ESC, with 6V built in BEC..

When speaking with Chris, he noted that unfortunately many pilots never experience the full potential of his air frames due to improper components. Thats why he offers a deep discount on combo packages. No one gives a better package deal. When you see the quality of the parts, you have to be impressed.

Great looking scheme! I think I will have to have one of these.

#7 stickybeatz Jul 25, 2011 04:39 PM

Sweet! I love my 60" Edge. Can't wait to see this one up close and personal. I'm guessing AUW will be pretty similar to the Edge?

The 60" EXP line is a must have!!! The Edge flys like a plane twice it's size!
When the 60" line came out at seff, I asked Daniel what I should get? He told me two Extra's, a Edge and a MSX;):)...

I have two 60" edge models, so one Extra will have to do..

Ya you are...;)

I have a feeling this will be out about the time my 55" Edge goes into retirement[permanent or temporary, only time will tell] and the gear goes here.

#15 stickybeatz Jul 25, 2011 08:09 PM

Do you know if these are in production now? Or still prototyping?
