maybe with a few changes just to differentiate it from the Edge a little, I don't know about the rest of you but the new scheme has got to be my favorite EF scheme yet! Plus, it gets extra points for being a full scale scheme first

Yes, changes to differentiate it from the Edge would be great. What changes do you suggest? Let's hope that Mr. Hinson has not already selected the second color scheme for the 60" Extra EXP.

Too Funny, I've done the same with my 87" Lanier Yak on top of my Escape... worked well - but I finally got a 10'x6' Trailer (room for more

There's no official date, but it sounds like they will be available within the next two months..

Speeking of pleasure.. I just flew 6 packs threw my blue 48" Extra EXP.. No wind!, no bugs!, 70deg!, and perfect sky's!! It doesn't get any better than that..
Awesome temperatures, Not so good in Texas 100F+ so no flying for me. And we still have August to deal with
So the good side to it will be the 300exp will be ready for some better flying temperatures. Its so nice to have something to look forward to.

If I was going to do the scheme in red, yellow and black, I would put some curves in the design, the edge has a lot of straight lines where the extra is a tad more curvy, maybe basically the same scheme just with some sweeping curved lines. There really isn't a scheme that Chris has come up yet that I haven't liked so I'm sure what ever it is is going to be awesome

Hey Tim,
You guys should drive out to my field about 20 min. from their field. We just have a bit of corn. But it's 1/4 mile to the closest trees!! I fly my 110" Yak out of it and have no problems! Dennis will be out there too on Sunday.Maybe Lafe also!
I wish Chris would make more of these gas optional !
Anyways,nice write up!

Sounds good! I would like to hit both fields. If you guys go there early? I'll hit you first..Would love to see that 88" Edge in action..


I just flew a few packs threw my 60" Edge EXP, and that thing is amazing!! It does Inverted elevators like it's full of helium! And hovers like it's on a string! I took a few moves from Hurc's video, and flew my 60" without the SFG's. It looked just like the 88" in the air. Got to dig that blue, and yellow..

It Makes me that much more excited for the Extra

Ill probably be taking the 110" Yak this time out. I need to get a better prop for my Edge. Dennis ordered his 88" Edge the other day in Red/wht/blu..
I should be there like 10 am. I'll pm you the field addy for your gps. I'm sure you have one of those?
