I liked my EPP Extra a lot until I knife-edge spun it into the ground. I'm getting a Yak this week because the Extra is out of stock. I believe Joe said he likes the Yak better.

I might also wait for the Edge to come out and put all my 42" Slick gear in it.

anyone know if a late model VW jetta sportwagon will fit a 50cc bird in a 89-91" wingspan? Will the front passenger seat have to fold flat? Does the front seat even do that?

if you get a plane with removable stabs, large planes like this can sit with the fuselage on the center console and is actually pretty darn convenient to carry around... if my mazda3 can do it, going by pics from google image search, Jetta Sportwagon will be pretty sweet also

thanks. So most of the 3dhs birds should be able to fit on the center console then? I think the 89 slick has removable stabs. I'm assuming the other 50cc birds do too?

all the 50ccs have removable stabs. if it comes down to it, you can also make the rudder removable. and then you can take off the gear. and the spinner.

I would certainly imagine it would. I can fit an 89 into a 2009 Subaru WRX 5 door wagon and those are smaller than the jetta sportwagon I think. And it fits with the stabs still on. I do have to position the front seats just right (left seat sorta verticle, and right seat slid all the way forwards with seat back all the way backwards. But once those are done I can work the stab/rudder around the seats and stick it in tail first. I have to shift under the stabs, and the elevator is partially into my seat, but I can fairly comfortably drive with it sitting in there. I'll try and remember to take a pic or two next time I load it up...

Anyone have the SFGs for the old white scheme 87 Extra? I'm looking for them.

I know i can fit two 71" slicks (non removeable anything) in the back of my 2012 VW sportwagen with just the rear seats folded flat. I wish i had an 89 to try

Hey guys, trying to maximize my time before the NJ fly low in. Does anyone know if the x mount from the reaper gr-60xl is the same size / hole pattern as the hacker a60-6xs?

I don't want to start ripping the front apart to realize I am not going to have time to get it all back together.

+1 I am itching for one of the EPP Edge's too! I plan on turning it into a night flyer from the get go. What is the ETA? Are they on the next shipment that is coming in?

Thankfully, I found an unopened set of 3DHS wood parts for foamies out in the garage this morning. The (new Pitts foamy) will fly, but not without some help from 3DHS hardware.
That picture made my day.
