Decals dont go on at the factory. My decals are all custom.

Option 2: ALWAYS love a round cowl and especially the 55. Weight is around 28 lbs which is what I'm used to, but flight characteristics are pretty unknown.

ANY THOUGHTS?
Or
Option 3: SupaTim deserves a SupaPlane / Krill Yak-55M 33% /

It's Gernot Bruckman approved. / At over $2k a little pricy, perhaps! /

However, being a 3D legend is priceless.

I think Tim is looking for a plane that VV carries. Certainly the price is much more attractive than going to another outside vendor/reseller.

Ding, ding, ding! I'm what's often referred to as a "baller on a budget" and as such am trying to stay on things I can sniff out a deal on. If that wasn't the case, Holman's 104" Extra 300 would be at the top of my list. I think 4 wing/stab tubes and full length webbing is right up my alley and after watching him spank it mercilessly at the huck it should be a no brainer.

Love the 330sc and think it would fit my style of flying. A few pounds lighter than most in its class and is Garreth approved! Downside is there's Kool-aid on every corner...

ALWAYS love a round cowl and especially the 55. Weight is around 28 lbs which is what I'm used to, but flight characteristics are pretty unknown. I like it more because it's unique but at the same time don't want to get stung if it ends up being an IMAC only type flyer...

ANY THOUGHTS?
I have a very scientific evaluation methodology: I think the Yak looks UGLY with a capitol ugly (since I have one I am allowed to freely express my "evaluation") so I would definitely be drinking the kool aid, especially since the 3D ability is assured

Well then do I have the plane for you "baller on a budget"!



Im guessing with your pilot skills that you could just fly the wings off this cardboard masterpeice & if you do crash, it's 100% recyclable. lol I am certain I will pay for this post big time...

Since I'm daydreaming anyway why not swing for the bleachers...

This is the XtremeComposites Extra 330sc and it is unbelievable. Only available in Europe but they're happy to crate one up and send it over at an additional cost...

If any of you guys find either one of these beauties laying around just let me know. Also if anyone can get a hold of the Nigerian Prince that keeps emailing me about laundering his money maybe he'd spot me a few $'s as well...

geno has first hand experience on option two, he loved how the plane flew imac but it was so stable it was hard to get to a 3d attitude at times. send him a pm and get his thoughts first hand though. he sold his in favor of his edge.

That's the shop's plane, and it's a great flyer but not a daily driver/hucker.
