I use a shelf bracket with some foam to store the fuse and hang the wing bags on a nail. I'll take a pic if you need one. Mine are in the garage year round.

I don't adjust unless it's really pretty far out of tune (usually when the weather seasons change.) As long as I get a reliable idle, top end and good transition I'm good. Now that might go against the norm as most would adjust at least when oil brands or ratio is changed, gas is changed, or weather.

Awesome. The Extra is my fav. For awhile I was infatuated with every one of the other ones, but I keep coming back to the Extra as my primary plane. Make sure you check out the set up photos and info in the Extra EXP article.

West London Models appears to be the UK distributor.

It also appears they are temporarilly out of stock, but as much Extreme flight stuff as they have on the site that's gotta be temporary.

Here's the page for the red Extra EXP.....

The 48" extras were out of stock here for a long time. They just got back in stock.
Not sure how it will play out overseas.

I ended up getting an Edge. The only thing I wish it had was a faster roll rate. Going to take off the 14x7 and try a 13x6 aeronaut see if that tightens things up a bit

Doc-
This is really nice- for people struggling with what might be best for their individual desire or style of flying- this is a great resource to help think through which platform is best for them. Great content/videos to showcase what you are talking about too!

Awesome job- the community will benefit from this work. I just subscribed to your blog through outlook- as an RSS feed; I now get an update every time you post in your blog- I really appreciate what you do to educate us mere flying mortals!

Sealing the hinge gap will help.

We are getting a lot of new guys who are not familiar with the line up. It is always easier for me to write an article and link to it when someone wants to know something. I am a lot less likely to miss something crucial that way too.
