Just wanted to jump in and say I am an EXTRA 300 happy owner. Granted I only have 1 flight on the bird, but it was a great flight, much better than I can say for other maidens I've had in the past.

I bought the plane used from a user on this forum, and it had been landed upside down once (by him), ripping the vertical stab off and scuffing the wings, but all looked good before I flew it. I guess the wings look a tiny flat but I thought it flew great and was super stable! I was halfway through the battery when I realized I had never even gone over half throttle. Plenty of speed but stays afloat fairly nice too.

I was extremely pleased with the landing. I had heard that it comes in a little hot, so I made sure to have plenty of room and speed. About 10 feet off the ground I throttled down and realized that I had gone all the way to 0 so I just kept descending and greased it perfectly, she nosed over in the tall grass, but that's to be expected.

Look forward to more flying and testing tonight!
