Precision Aerobatics Extra MX pre-release info thread

Hey guys,

The new plane looks great, of course it's so brand spanking new that there is very few facts about it yet. Further intelligence from spies at SEFF or others in the know should be posted here!

So far, here are the facts;

It's called the Extra MX
58" wingspan
proto is 62 oz AUW
thrust 50 motor, quantum 60 ESC
6S 2200 mah lipos (plugging 2 of those 3S that we already conveniently almost all have around in series, how perfect is that?)
It looks beautiful. (Yes, that IS a fact. even if it can be said that it reminds an edge)
There will probably be a green one (TBA on the other colors)
It can fly (there are pictures of it in the air)
I have many questions about the plane, that's a fact

Also add any new pics/video!


A HUGE thanks goes out to the dedicated RC enthusiasts at SEFF that went through the trouble of taking these pictures and uploading them for us so "fresh" I think I can credit most of them to Jim T. Graham and the rest to Bildo Baggins, apologies if I missed others.

Needless to say I am pretty excited about it, that doesn't necessarily mean I am ready to jump in.

Of course a plane this big would mean more trips to the club because this ain't no parkflyer unless you're talking about a gigantic, remote deserted park and no-one's looking.

I can't wait to see VIDEO many of us have seen enough videos of Dan and HERC to get a pretty good feel from the plane by watching them fly it so that's gonna say a lot!

Do my congrats count as a prize?

Ok, you win! Come on over and I will gladly fork over the carton of beer, and we'll enjoy it together, over another carton of beer of course!

(I brew my own beer, you're in for a treat)

Looks good, sounds good.... Probably not my first airframe choice but certainly not one of those that I wouldn't buy. Price "all up" is a concern, as it has to be, and is for most of us I'm sure. I have a 55" 3DHS Kat that I fly often enough but I won't really lay it down with that one due to cost if I break it. There's a lot to be said for the smaller beater types here.
It's got my interest though and kudos to PA for stepping away from the norm a little. Maybe we'll get a full line of colors this time.

Victory beer would have been mighty sour had that been a P-51 mustang, am I right?
