Some pics this evening of the 70" EXP next to her little sisters. Hmm, which one.... Makes for an E.x.t.r.a. fun time.

Cory, I don't but I'll see what I can do on getting some up.
Chris H flew this plane last week when I was running the 20" prop and complemented it as well as commented on the power.
4000mA 8S batterys arrived. 6oz lighter than the 5000mA.

Anyone know of any good methods to tint/paint the canopy a darker color.
I understand that the Rit dye method doesn't work on this material.
I have an airbrush available.

Flop,
Is that your 58", I thought you sold it? How do the 58" and 70" compare (tracking, axial rolls, etc.)?

Edge, I actually sold the 58" and the 48", my flying buds have 'em! Once they fly 'em they start making offers...... I don't like to have too many running at once so I sold some. I have the Edge EXP coming.

I have owned the 48" Exp, 58" 300, 70" Exp and 88" 300, all electric and can compare...

They all fly about the same as in great! I have not got a lot of stick time on the 70" yet. The 88" has the giant scale quality, easiest and floatiest to low and slow 3D. The 58" feels the heaviest. The 70" flies more like the 48" than the 88" but they all fly great. One of the things I love about the EF 300s are the axial rolls, best rollin' plane around.

A few of us have had good luck using the Tamiya Smoke (PS-31) on our 78" Extras. Make sure you get the PS line that is designed for polycarbonate because it remains flexible. Not quite as good looking as a real tint, but pretty good. Because the canopy is so large on the Extra 300s that a tinted canopy helps seeing the plane in the air.

Hello all,

Effective today, most PowerEdge batteries have dropped in price by 25%. High performance packs at a reasonable price. We'll have our new 6000 30C packs out around mid October. www.rcaccessory.com

I will agree on this. I have the 78'' EXP and it is very floaty.
