48" EPP Extra

Wingspan 48"

36-40 oz. with lipo

The 48" EPP Extra is the first in a new line of aircraft from 3DHobbyShop. Built at the world's premier EPP production facility, the 48" employs built up EPP foam structure with a carbon backbone, carbon wing tube, removable airfoiled wings, carbon stiffening in the wings, fuse, and tail, SFG's - which all combine to give superb flight performance and serious durability.

With the removable wings, transporting is easy and assembly at the field takes less than a minute. The Extra uses the most common sizes of battery and servos so you probably already have most of the necessary equipment. A magnetic top hatch makes battery changes quick and easy for lots of uninterrupted flying - and considering what a superb high performance 3D practice plane this is, you will want to fly nonstop.

The Extra is extra rugged, the EPP foam and carbon backbone technology mean you can survive most hard crashes with little or no repair work to do. Spring steel landing gear help soak up the hard hits too, while large free rolling wheels allow use from a variety of surfaces.

The Extra is recommended for use with our Omega 130g870KV motor, a 45-55Amp ESC, and 4 X Hitec HS-65MG servos. As rugged as this airframe is, you will want metal servo gears so that the servos are rugged too. A 3S 2100-2200mah lipo is recommended. 4S 1500-2200 can also be used. We recommend assembling with thick and thin regular CA glue, and repairing with Welder's glue.

Either as your next step up from flat EPP foam planes, a fantastic practice plane, or your no-worries go-to hardcore aerobatics plane, the Extras delivers with super-low coupling, extremely easy 3D and good speed and handling in gusty winds. Give the Extra a try, you'll fall in love with it!
