Thanks, it fits with with smudge to spare. Have to "twist" the fuselage as I load it to get the stab in through a narrow place, but it appears that t will fit, and if not, removing the horizontal stab, it definitely will fit

Hi guys!
Can't make up my mind what extra to buy 70' or 60'. She will be my first EF plane. What would you recommend?

I would say it depends on what you want to do.

Everything else aside except flying:

The 60" is going to be a much more high energy plane where the 70" is going to be a little more reserved. Both are equally capable but the 60" has huge power, huge speed range, huge control throws and a will handle anything you can do to it.

The 70" very precise and crisp and flies a lot like a much bigger plane. I enjoy flying this plane and working on my skills, it just gives you so much time to think. To me it feels happiest in the mid speed ranges. It is so stable and predictable and straight flying that it makes me smile every time I fly it!

You can't go wrong with either one!

Thank you!
You wrote about 60" and 78", but what about 70"? You think Extra 70" is a successful EF airframe?

The 70" is awesome. I can use that word here because I also have a 71" AJ Slick which is also awesome! LOL. Check out the first few pages of this thread for some good info. Good flying! Dana

Hi guys
just wanted to ask if anyone has experienced the need to add more right thrust angle to the already built in angle of the shorter gas/ep motor box.
or are you using a throttle --> rudder mix

None of the above for me. What are you experiencing?

Had a motor fail while I was in a harriar, push alittle down elevator and was able to saftly land the plane. It was near the end of the runway though so it coasted of the end and just flopped over onto it's top. Nothing major, but the top of the rudder cracked. So I dripped some thin CA in and put the covering back down, then added a white strip of covering to cover the small tears and a silver pinstripe. Now she is all fixed, time to fly again.

I was experiencing a lot of pull to the left on my maiden and second flight on vertical up lines. Tried this with,into and cross wind with the same result.

I used a logger on the maiden and with a 18x8 prop on the scorpion 4035-380 on 7S was getting 2100 watts @ 78 amps and that was about 90 % throttle at the most. for the maiden I didn't want to take it to WOT plus I was quite happy with the output

I added a little more right thrust but when I plugged in my 7s battery (3s and 4s in series) today to test if there was any improvement my esc fried quite spectacularly.
it was an CC ICE 100
Checked my wiring and couldn't identify any faults with the series harness and batteries, was using a EC5 connector so can't have reversed polarity. I've connected batteries in series many times but never had this happen
Does anyone have any experience with the extreme flight airboss 90 amp OPTO ESC might order one as replacement while I hopefully get a replacement CC ICE

after the CC ICE fried I hooked up a turnigy plush 80 amp ESC and went to test the adjustment to the thrust angle and it was a lot straighter on the vertical up line even had a little movement to the right as i reduced thottle and swung around.
the turnigy only supports 6s but i was still getting 1900 watts @ 85 amps with a 20x8 APC and about 1775 watts @ 76 amps with the 18x8 APC
I ordered the airboss 90 amp OPTO ESC so the turnigy is just tempororary till that arrives hopefully by the end of the week.
I'll keep the new thrust angle for now as i'm hoping that the power increase when I go back to 7s will have my vertical up lines straight as an arrow hands off.
