Nice flying Benton. What setup are you using if I may ask? I've got a heavier (103) gram motor on mine and am thinking on getting a 2nd one with a lighter setup.

Bad Hair Day

Took the extra to the park armed with my new props. First pack, tryed a rolling loop in the first minute. Bang nosed it in broken prop. (this was the new 11 x7 so fly at 3.75 a pop). Dang, i said, so i put on the spare, the 10 x7 slo9 fly, couple more circuits, tried an inverted spin, kept it going too low, pulled out about 4 feet from the ground inverted stalled it, bang in she goes, another broken prop.
Thats 7.50 worth of props in about 3 minutes. I think i need to get a cheaper prop or learn how to fly. Just couldnt fly for toffee, all over the place. Out of touch with the Extra, as i havent flown it for a while.

They are coarse pitch props for 3D and maybe your ESC Do you mean 11 x 4.7 SF?
I am using 11 x 4.7SF on the 2810 motor, but if you are using the 2217, I'm guessing that is working it some, mine got hot on a 10 x 4.7!

Don't feel too bad, my friend and I were flying last week, the only two people there, both with ExtraVaganza's and we hit each other
I managed to remove one blade of his prop and take a piece out of the centre of the other one, cut the front off both his wheel spats and make several lacerations through his wing up to the spar
I came off better with a bent motor cross mount, bent prop driver shaft, split in the wheel spat and 1" missing off one prop blade.

It didn't have time to overheat. It was only in the air for 1minute..
Mark was Out of stock of the 10, so he advised the 11. It did seem a lot more powerful. Ill stock it on the wattmeter. I didn't find it overheated with the 10 at all. Perhaps you had a bad motor?

I do fly alot. The good news is that I don't work and don't have to remember all those thing about work in my head. It keeps me thinking of flying. I just ask Santa for things and blink my eyes at my grandparents. I am one lucky guy. Merry Christmas to all and I hope you all got Twisted stuff under the tree.
