No updates @ the moment. Last I heard possibly sometime around SEFF.. But sure one of the EF guys can give you a bit more insight.

Video of Chris flying it on HigherPlaneProductions. Pretty sick stuff...pretty much as expected. Looks like one heck of a 3d machine.

Well... A new fuselage and left wing could save it, but parts a hard to find.. The plan was to switch the gear into the 60" edge anyway..

The shame is, I just got it dialed in, and it was flying Soooo good!

ouch Tim... that hurts... although we all know it's part of the game...

maybe Chris H. has something left to get your Extra back in shape...

anyway the 60" Edge is a "MUST HAVE IN MY HANGAR" plane!

Max.

With the 60" Edge and the new 2m Vanquish being in the same container these might not even get into the warehouse. He'll slap a shipping label on them and unload them directly into the UPS truck.

Sorry to hear about your Extra Tim.

Normally I don't go for the Blue / Yellow Scheme but this time around I fell for this one. It is a sweet looking ship and I am holding out for it.

I saw the video on higherplanes and man it is awesome... On top of the video that Tim did when he was in GA

OH Nooo Tim.. sorry to hear that pal. Hopefully the 60 inch is released soon so you can have a new ship.

What happened ?

I second that .. Your right it won't make it to the warehouse.. Just have UPS @ the docks and load it right up.

Sorry to see that. I know you loved that plane.

That and when they are brand new seems to be the point when fate takes an interest. You almost never wreck them once they get ragged out. The uglier they are, the longer they live.

Unless they are already on the water and EF is going to surprise us all. Now that would be great..
