I know I'm a long way from being able to fly as good as Chris Manns.
Means he's actually sponsored by EF now.
I got to talk with him at eWeek a bit, and it couldn't happen to a nicer guy

As for your graphics...
Heck, the SFG graphics that come with the planes say "Extreme Flight Radio Control Aerobatic Team" so I would
think you're probably OK as long as you're not presenting yourself to others as an EF-sponsored pilot or something.

I've seen quite a few 'Team Extreme' graphics out there. The used 88" Yak I recently bought has that on the sides. (Or did, before covering repairs)
I'm sure Chris H. would speak up if he had a problem with it.

team extreme is on all the graphics from EF for the SFG's, so we are all part of Team Extreme

I got an EF plane on sale once I guess I should read the default graphics before I put them away (Actually going to use them on my Edge I think).

I wish it was as easy as buying a decal! Only The best of the best are on Team Extreme!

It only takes about 10,000 hours of practice, O yea, and a natural ability helps a bit

We're all part of the Extreme flight Air Force, but there the Green Berets..

Aeronaut cam carbon power props

I saw somehere that Chris Jewett was using these so I decided to give them a try.

These props are the shizz!!. I may be ridding myself of the Xoar PJN Beechwood props.

I had 2 flights on my Hacker setup with the Aeronaut 16x8 CAM Carbon pro.
So far I can tell the modulation is a lot better. Power is more immediate than the wood. No bench testing and I could care less about the numbers....I like the way it feels.

I just got replacement wheel pants and SFGs for my Extra and i noticed the wheel pants are solid red now and plastic like the MXS pants. I liked them better when they were CF and black/white/red and probably wouldn't have ordered them if i knew they were just red. Do the new kits come with solid red wheel pants? Another thing is my SFGs look like they fit my MXS but not my Extra. It's like someone just covered the MXS SFG in red. They're bigger than my original SFGs and the holes don't line up, but they line up with the wings of my MXS. Oh well, i emailed EF and i'm sure they'll take care of me but i was really excited to get my plane looking fresh.

if you like the aeronauts, the same producer has a topline called rfm-props.
these are laminated props and do outperform the cam by far.
note, not all of the rfm are produced with the same fine cf.....however, the 16x8, 16x10, 17x8, 15x10 are excellent. dont buy the 15x7.
as for 60sizes planes, the 16x8 with a 55mm middlepiece is my very favorite prop ever. 50mm is top for precision flying.

Do you have a link for them? All google turned up was their folding props and another site in German which had them but no longer carry anything other than the folding props for some reason.

lol, you were on the right path....folding props i was speaking about
http://shop.modellbau-freudenthaler....ex.php?list=30
dont get confused about the look....these work excellent for 3d

comparing xoar to them.....xoar seems to be only vibration and noise.
having said that, i still do also like xoar and apc.
