My favorite is....the last one I just put four batteries through. (60" Extra, 48" MXS or 60" MXS without racing wing tips).

Actually, it is fast becoming the 64", followed by the 48" MXS (For some reason, I'm just connected to this plane), then the 60" Extra. All three are so far beyond any of my other planes.

Yeah. I'll be completely broke about Christmas time but I'll find a way to get one of those.

My ESC has 3.5mm and I got it connected to the 2814/820, so I am assuming they are 3.5 mm.

Here's my vote for the Extra EXP, (with the Laser being a close second and clear sentimental favorite).
I have flown the 48" Extra, 48" Edge, 48" MXS, 60" Edge, and 60" MXS.
I didn't care for the Extra at all. I've flown two different ones, at first I thought something was just wrong in mine since everyone else loved them so much, so I jumped at the chance to fly another one recently. It was just like I remembered mine and I didn't like it at all. I *love* the MXS though, hands down it gets my vote for my favorite!
I like the tumbly aggressiveness of the 48, and also the smoothness of the 60" one. Hard to choose a favorite between those two. But definitely the MXS is my favorite of the EXP series. Haven't flown a laser yet though...

Not really, definitely not in any contest type stuff, but I do from time to time fly a bit more smoothly than just 3d stick banging. But not for long

I did a fly off between my 48" MXS and Laser last week. In the end I pick the Laser with SFGs. I have never gotten my MXS to fly as good as my VR1 in insanity tumbles despite the massive elevator throw. I only have 1 flight one the Extra and none on the small Edge. I did love the 60" edge I sold though.

My vote goes to the Laser. The 60" might drag me back into this size class.

Hey guys!

Last night I finished up the first of the build vids for the 64" MXS.

So far I am loving my MXS more than anything else! With the Aeronaut 15/8 this thing is ballistic! I love it.

Wow!!! There's some great fotage of Chris Hinson flying the new 60" laser at E week! The bad news is that it's on Higher Plane.. Actually it's good news, because without Freddy, there's no footage! Crack open your Paypal accounts, and join! 12$ every three months is a deal!!

It's looks big when Chris is holding it! There going to need a new box for that monstrous fuselage! Very cool..

Chris Jeweitt also has a crazy good session with his new 64" MXS!

Great stuff, Chris, and Chris!!!

$40 per year is well worth it and pennies compared to everything else in this hobby.
