New Extra 300-E from Extremeflightrc

I have been anticipating this release for a while now and it was hard to keep quiet about it. I saw Chris fly his prototype and it was just awesome. The video should be available any day now.

Some of you remember Mike Hall from Aerolock. He is now teamed up with Extremeflightrc to bring some of the best ARF's to the market. Mike's dedication to scale and Chris's influence of 3D performance shows throughout the plane.

These are on the water and should be available for purchase mid Feb according to Chris.

Specs:

Wingspan: 45 inches

Length: 42.5 inches

Wing Area: 400 sq. inches

Weight: 30-33 oz.

Power: Extreme Flight Torque 2818/900 Motor

I am not familiar with the Torque 2818/900. But I have a Hacker A30-28S that would be sweet in this airframe. And this is one sweet looking airframe. It's always nice to have a new model to be wanting. Looking forward to more info.

I think it is inline with the A30 series. The 2818/900 is a 25a constant, 35a burst motor. 350-388 watts peak. It was not lacking power by far. This thing is an animal

Nice looking motor mount, 4 screw holes for the motor and 4 cooling holes too! nice.
I am really glad Mike and Chris got together for this type of stuff!

Of course, the fact that it is an Extra 300 don't hurt a bit!

Please change your title!!! It is not a 330, it is the old 300 mid wing design.
Also, for the record, a 330 is just a 300L with a 330HP engine instead of a 300 hp engine. Walter Extra also never actually manufactured and sold a 330. Some guy just bough a 300L and shoved a larger engine in it and some modeler got wind of it and now everybody calls 300L's 330's, basically just for cool-factor...

Looks great...I have 3 extra's right now but it looks like I will be adding another one to the fleet. I wish the landing gear was a bit taller. It is acutally pretty scale but looks a bit "squashed" for some reason, kind of resembles the old Carl Goldberg extra for some reason. Hope mike keeps cranking them out. Would love to see a pitts or ultimate in about this size....mike...are you listening? Looking forward to the video.

If I recall that is an 11" prop on the front and a 12" will fit with clearance. I thought the gear looked low too when I first saw it, but it is scale. The overall size of this thing is just impressive. Especially when you are holding it. I love planes in the 45" range. This is just the beginning.......

It's not a 300L, either!! It is a 300...think Carl goldberg Extra 300...no "L", "S", or "E" after the 300 and a MIDWING design, not low wing.
