If you seal them up, it will make a difference. I run a really tight gap, but I always seal them anyway.

On the Laser 48" I noticed a lot more pitch authority.
The 48" Extra has the smallest elevator of the EXP lineup. I've learned to just fly the plane harder and pull the elevator harder. I know that sounds simplistic, but it seems to suit me best.

However, the 60" Extra is just right with 70 degrees of elevator. It pitches about as hard as the MXS does with 60 degrees. So far, in the 60s the Yak seems to be the pitch monster, though it is too early for me to tell with the Laser after only one flight.

I do a couple of walls and parachutes in this video and you can just the pitch authority for yourself. Nothing special on this build except Hitec 7245MH servos set at 7.4 volts. that has been my first experience with these servos and they certainly have some speed and grunt. I just put a set of these in my new 60" Laser too, and any new 60 EXP I build will get these.

Did you try calling Extreme Flight?

Maybe try posting this in the Extreme Flight owners thread or you could try the Extra thread. It could probably use a bump to the front.

I had a huge day with my newish 60" Extra today. Video is uploading now.

With the 60" Extra, Laser and Yak being so good, I can almost get away with not having a 64" MXS, at least for awhile. I'll get another one when I wreck one of my current 60" planes, but I hope that's not too soon.

Video in about an hour, hopefully. What an amazing airplane!

For those of you considering a 60" span plane, please give this a look:

You're really making me miss my 60 Extra, Doc. I held too many Viking Funerals in 2014. I hope I got all the crashing and subsequent burning out of my system.

Flight Report

I have about 25 flights on my Extra now, and it has always been a little nose heavy till today. I have since moved the flight pack rearward and now it balances nose up 20 degrees when lifted by the wing tube. I used to like the way it flew, but now I actually love it. The weird thing, though, is that I have more fun on low rates than on high rates. I only use about 20 degrees up/down on the elevator, and with the cg back, it really flies nice. Of course, the pitch authority is awesome on 3D rates, and it basically rotates about the cg, especially in forward stick maneuvers. This is by far the best flying model I have ever owned, and it's like two planes in one, just by flipping a switch. The 16x7 turnigy prop leaves nothing to be desired as well.
