Guys,

Chris was kind (and brave) enough to let me have a pull on his blue Extra. With 4S on 2818/900 and 12x6 prop, this plane is a monster. It tracks smooth due to its long tail moment, but when you hammer the elevator LOOK OUT! It tumbles like a madman as well.

This is definitely a must have, and another winner for the EF Team. Congrats Chris! Also Chris and Curtis put on a great show at the Noon Time Demo.

This plane looks awesome and is definitely on my list for my 4s set-up (although I'm tempting just to save up for that 123" Extra that was on display.

Chris, it was good to meet you and share a little whiskey with you - congrats on another great design.

Here's one of my shots of the plane from the weekend.

Did anyone get vids of this at SEFF? Sorry if I missed the linky but somehow I missed the demo. Looks great and I have the equipment to fill her up already

Thanks, I have tons of them (more of the 88" Extra than this one). If you want any hi-res ones, PM me your email address and I'll send you some after I get FlyRc squared away with the best shots.

Would love some hi res shots. Please email to info@extremeflightrc.com

I would love a few of the now deceased 88" Extra. She wasn't around long enough for me to get any good pics. Just put $100 worth of graphics on her the day before leaving for SEFF :-(

The aircraft will ship with spacers to allow either motor to be used.
