Help!
Which Extra???

OK, I have never flown either, so which one do I get, the Great Planes 55'' Extra 300SP, or the Dualsky 54'' Extra 260?

PJ,
I apologize in advance for answering your question with another question but have you thought about the 58" Extremeflight Extra? That said I do like the covering scheme on the new Great Planes 55".

Yes, I looked at it too, and have actually seen one fly. Main reason for not getting it is that it would be more expensive than the others, as well as the gear for it.

I am actually leaning towards the Dualsky Extra right now. It would be the cheapest to get flying, and has 700 sq in of wing area(as mich as the Extreme Flight) but at just 4lbs! All of the flight reports I have read on RCG are good. I do have to say I like the scheme on the Great Planes, and Extreme Flight Extras better though.
