Extra 300 88inch VS Edge 540T 88inch - Extreme flight RC

Hello
im very interested in Edge or Extra by Extreme flight RC 50cc size.
I like precision flying but also a agressive 3D flying and some crazy autorotate manuevers.
I just cant decide which plane is better for me.
If you have any advices and tips , ill be very happy!
Thanks!
Michael.

Hi Michael, We have both the Edge and Extra and you're picking from the very best here! I have enjoyed both of them immensely and you will be very happy with either. The Extra does a couple IMAC maneuvers slightly cleaner than the Edge, but the difference is very slight. The Edge will out tumble the Extra and has a slight edge in 3D.
Both airplanes will do it all and I highly recommend them both. Personally, I like the Edge a little better, but again, they'll both do it all!
If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask and we'll do our best to help!
All the best,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,
im very glad your help.
I crashed my KRILL aircraft Thunder 3D and im looking forward, i want try something new, i was always flying just electric power, but i think that the best 50cc planes are made by Extreme flight RC.
I had a few years ago little 1,2m Edge 540T by ef but also a 1,5m Extra 300 and both of these planes were amazing.
Edge was always my dream plane, but in my opinion Extra can fly manuevers more cleaner.
So i just cant decided which plane is better for me. I like the Edge,because it can fly funny autorotate manuevers and i never seen any video,where Extra doing same manuevers.
Im talking about Waterfalls and any others. What do you think about it? Is Extra possible to fly these type of autorotating manuevers?
Thanks!

Yes, the Extra will do all that "funny" stuff too. You will have no problem with it. The Edge is just a little "funnier". You'd love the Extra!

You will not be disappointed with that decision! It seems like the Edge is going to suit your flying style perfectly and I very much agree with Daniel's analysis of the 300 vs the Edge. Here's another vid with some autorotations and things that you mention in your request:

I think based on what you want to do with the plane that the Edge is the best bet.

I have a friend who has just purchased a Hacker A80-10 motor and CC 160HV ESC. He is considering buying the EF 88" Edge 540T; however, he is a little uncertain on whether he should run a 10S or 12S setup. Any thoughts on this, along with a recommended prop?
