I'm drooling also on this one.

Thanks Max!
I think it's important to point out, that I pay retail for 95% of the products I fly. So when I talk about a product(or write about), it's because I truly believe in it! I was planing on preordering a 60" extra combo, before the build was offered to me, and From what I've seen so far, this is the most well rounded airframe you can get in this size range!

So yes... I'm very lucky!

Tim, you are doing a great job in giving us such a detailed report with this building log. I think most of us appreciate what you are doing. I just can barely imagine your face when Chris asked you to open the thread. You deserved it.

As I said earlier, keep up the good work. You're doing great.

Well, who knows who will be the next to open a build&fly log for the 60" MXS...

Max

Thanks Again Max!!

Chris does a great job by giving back to his best customers the opportunity to review his planes. It goes to show EF believes in their customer base and trusts the reviews provided since they are truly un-biased. Especially when they build such great airplanes. I have been addicted to their planes since 07 and love them all. Wish I had more time to fly them. But getting out once and a blue moon it really reminds me how great the airframes are.

Is that a 260? or a modified single place 300? hard to tell from the rear angle.

Update!

Don't want to steal Tim's thunder, but figured he wouldn't mind if I chimed in with an update. Just spoke with the factory this morning and the 60 inch Extras are being boxed! With any luck they will be ready to leave China in the next 2 weeks.
Thought I'd share a couple of photos of the other color scheme as well. I intentionally left the star decals off of the red color scheme as I know not everyone is as crazy about stars as I am, but they are included for both color schemes.
Working on what I hope is the final prototype of the 104" Extra in this same red scheme and hope to sign off on it in the next week so we can get production underway on this beast!
