Nine Eagles Extra 300L

Just seen a peek at this little plane in RC Heli magazine its powered by a 7.4v 250mah lipo and has a 500mm span. I dont think it's in shops yet.

If it's anything like their Cessna it's WAY too heavy...Look, 20 inch wingspan at EIGHTY grams!

Yikes, you're right, and it's even worst... It's listed as 90 grams. Though, the battery is probably responsible for half this weight.... Still, that look like a lot of wing loading...

addict....Put it in the cart first...
RtF 59.35 and 47.84 BnF.....
and gentlemen all this extra weight gives the 9 Eagles EPP wings TOO much flex, especially coming out of a loop...
However, that being said it MAY be worth it to see if they can be lightened or use the electronics in something else...

90g is normal for an extra 300 of that size. As someone said, there is much more wing area than the cessna.
I own a 20" epp plane which is similar to the extra 300; and it flies gently at 100g.

If you look at the videos below, you'll notice that the plane is a little bit underpowered. The 160 brush motor is not the best choice...
A brushless set up would be nice to have a real aerobatic plane.

The RTF shows up as $61 + 17 shipping for me. This plane cannot be used with a Spektrum dx6i correct?

Thanks tymbrewolf Does anyone know if you can fly this with just 3 channels and learn to use the ailerons as you go or would that be a bad idea?

I only want a brick to make my own and be able to use my nine eagles SP tx.

I would say that most of the flying in the first video was only 3 ch using ailerons and elevator. AET is just about as easy as RET. The difference in many RET planes is the dihedral self rights them. Not much looping going on. I figure with a brick, I could make a little Smart dart or nutball on 3ch and forget the linear servo for aileron. Put a bnf and a battery in my cart. Stayed on the page a while looking at each and both were offered cheaper than the member price. Total of 55.82 +19.95 registered shipping to USA
